  • I finished reading this great book yesterday! These are my thoughts: Great book for learning what anyone needs to have in mind on life financial matters: On savings, everyday spending, kids, retirement, investments, insurance and taxes For someone who did not grow in this system and had no-one to teach me the financial system here I found it extremely helpful, for getting a solid understanding of the factors that are in play and getting equipped with the right financial questions to ask at the right time. I think that is very valuable. Some of the factors it mentioned I did not have awareness of before, so I learned some new stuff too. The earlier we become aware if these matters in our adult life the better - I would even give this to someone in college. It explains all the things that bring anxiety to a lot of us, in a very simple way and takes away some of that fear of dealing with them. This book is awesome.

Covers the ABC's of solid financial well-being at any age, especially Chapter 45 "The Art of Science - Health Insurance Basics" . Health insurance can be confusing, chapter is easy to understand which means a great benefit in the practical use of the info. Great reference book for my desk. I've shared it with my kids and friends.

  • Wow, what a clever, metaphorical way of explaining the “ key” things folks starting off ( or even those who are “ established”) need to know to be successful in life! I think putting into terms that are relatable to women today, makes a huge difference ! I wish I had this book to read when I was starting out!

It covers material ranging from college funds to retirement plans using everyday metaphors and accessible language. Because of its varied topics, the information disclosed is relevant for anyone, whether just starting out your first job, or planning to retire. The book carefully lays out the intricacies of personal finance, and how each different area is connected and affected by the other.

  • Very informative read on all things finance! The chapter on Retirement had some great advice and things to help set you up for success. I am looking forward to passing this out to family and friends this Holiday season and will save couple of copies to give to my two young kids to read when they get a little older. The advice they can get from this book will be invaluable.

  • Your Dollars, Our Sense is a very informative book with all the basics to prepare one for a successful financial life. While the topic of finance can oftentimes be hard to discuss this book takes a different approach that makes it quite interesting. The content helped me get a grasp on a multitude of financial vocabulary as well as providing a clear sense of how to proceed with regards to my personal finances in the future. One aspect of the book that I particularly connected with was chapter 4 which covered saving for the costs of childcare as well as their future education, which is something that is very important to me. I would recommend Your Dollars, Our Sense to anyone from a financial professional to a high school student as there is always something to learn or improve on and everything is very easily laid out for readers throughout the book.
