The Index Card: Why Personal Finance Doesn't Have to be Complicated
By Helaine Olen and Harold Pollack

I'd bet most folks think finances are not an easy topic to discuss, but this book goes to show it doesn't have to be so complicated after all. These authors have had their financial ups and downs and learned some things the hard way. Harold found he could sum up what he had learned onto an index card. OK, so he added one or two other things " if he wrote smaller, they'd all fit on. The rest of the book just explains the topics, the 'why' behind them.

This book is a simple, no nonsense, easy to read guide to handling your money and managing it well. It's written in a light-hearted, down to earth, 'I've been there' kind of way. I found it enjoyable and educational, especially if you are stuck and unsure where to start or what to do to get your personal finances on target. Start here!
