It's amazing how many people do not balance their checkbooks or don't participate in their companies 401(k) or 403(b) plans. Or they are so far in debt they fear they will never see daylight. In many cases, these are not uneducated people; this just happens to be an area of their lives where they have received little to no guidance. So they do the best they can with what they do know.
Financial Fundamentals not only shares practical information such as how to balance a checking account and how to set up a budget, but also asks many questions designed to help the reader think through why their current financial situation is in the shape it is.
While there are many books that go into a lot more depth than Financial Fundamentals, this book was written for anyone who may be just getting started, may be starting over, needs to get a better handle on the basics, or just needs to know that there is a way to a better life.
