A powerfully simple, must-have manifesto on money with more than 90 wealth-building rules from the Today show's finance guru. In a time of great financial uncertainty, this is the book everyone must read. The bottom line- Money is simple-people make it complicated. Now, bestselling personal finance author Jean Chatzky has distilled this simplicity into a smart, immediate, and entertaining set of rules that will change readers' financial lives. Chatzky removes the stress associated with all things money and says it clearly- Readers who follow these basic yet crucial approaches to spending, saving, investing, increasing their income, and most importantly, protecting what they have, will build the wealth and financial stability they've been dreaming of. Chatzky's advice is reassuring, straightforward, and often counterintuitive, including- - Date your stocks; don't marry them. - 'More money' won't always make you 'more happy.' - To spend less, carry Benjamins, not Jacksons. - If you can't explain it, don't invest in it. - 'Free' can be very expensive. Written in her trademark warm, witty voice, and with a special Dos and Don'ts section, Money Rulesis the only book readers really need to achieve true financial health and happiness.

“Money Rules: The Simple Path to Lifelong Security” by bestselling author Jean Chatzky is a very good book about how to properly use your money responsibly. The book is a huge list of “money rules” and advice developed by Chatzky, advising how the reader can properly use there money. The book contains almost 100 rules revolving around money, with topics ranging from how to make money, save money, how to avoid getting into massive debt, how to spend your money wisely, and more. What I liked about “Money Rules: The Simple Path to Lifelong Security” is that each page is dedicated to one money tip. Even with only one page dedicated to to one tip, each page is filled with a decent amount of text, and as such, is able to present the tips in a simple, yet semi-detailed way. Most of the tips presented in the book are very good, simple tips that in my opinion, need to be given to everyone. Some tips aren’t even such that if you do them, you’re one step closer to being a millionaire or a billionaire. Some of the tips are just about focusing on your job, on your education, not delaying on pay the bills, and more. All-in-all, this book is a very simple, but very good read for those who want to be better with there hard-earn money. Score: 4 / 5. @Ay-J of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

light read; clear, concise, simple money rules for life.
Even if you think you know these it's good to have a little reminder now and then.
