"Quite simply the best financial self-help book."
--Money Book Club, Book-of-the-Month Club

Even if you consider yourself a financial "basket case," Chilton explains how you can easily put an effective financial plan into action.

In this third edition of one of the biggest-selling financial-planning books ever, David Chilton simplifies the complex puzzles of personal finance and helps you achieve financial independence. With the help of his fictional barber, Roy, and a large dose of humor, Chilton shows you how to take control of your financial future--slowly, steadily, and with sure success. Chilton's plan (detailed in an entertaining story) is no get-rich-quick scheme, but it does make financial independence possible on nothing more than an average salary.

This third edition has been updated with assistance from the Arthur Andersen Corporation.

Great introduction into financial plans for the "financially illiterate". Helped me a great deal and steered me into the right direction for my future finances but other than that it was a boring cast.

Easy-to-read introduction to personal finance, but a bit out-of-date.

This is an entry level book on Financial Management in US. eg. 401ks, mortgage deductability, the renumeration received from the state and the US Social Security System. That beings said, the principles are still sound.

A classic, easy-to-read financial planning guide. Mainly American-oriented, but the basic lessons are applicable no matter where you live.
