Get Good with Money: Ten Simple Steps to Becoming Financially Whole
Why this book?
Get Good with Money has all the practical advice you need to start tracking your spending, reducing your debt, saving, and (eventually) building your wealth. What sets it apart is the tone. Aliche, a former preschool teacher, has both personal experience with financial stress and the clear voice that comes from time in a classroom with young kids. When you read this book, you feel as if you are having a talk with a friend, not a stern judge or an out-of-reach educator. It is also very methodical and well thought out, and the structure makes it easy for you to notice and appreciate your progress.
