It's hard to find a money book to get really excited about because so much of the advice that's out there seems like it should be common sense. Spend less than you earn, save, invest, and avoid debt like the plague. It's all good advice and yet it's not that simple in reality.

The financial industry as a whole is full of people whose only goal is to take money out of your pocket and put it in theirs. Invest in an index fund with Vanguard. It's good advice but he doesn't tell you that you need $10,000 dollars as a minimum investment. I think I have 10k laying around the kitchen somewhere. It's a lazy 10k and needs a job. Ten thousand dollars is a lot of money for most people.

Solin also advocates paying off your largest debts before you start saving. It makes sense because you will pay more in interest than most savings products will give you. Dave Ramsey advocates building an emergency fund then paying down your debts from smallest to largest. Both methods make sense but Ramsey's gives you the ability to feel like you're making progress. We build on success.

This is essentially a book of tips and couldn't be anything else, considering the breadth. I find it useful to read on these topics. Even if I disagree with some of the tactics, it keeps me focused on my goals.
