Anybody out there make a New Year’s resolution to take charge of da dollars in 2011?
Anybody out there who didn’t make that kind of personal vow?
Whoever you are, you need this book:
“Personal Investing: The Missing Manual” (O’Reilly) was written by a trio of financial specialists who address saving for retirement, education and long-term health care.
Plenty of us came up with no money education whatsoever. The authors demystify dollar-related doin’s such as:
- What is investing?
- How do I create realistic goals?
- What if I can’t abide risk?
- Will I get rich right off the bat?
- Would a REIT be wrong? (Okay, they didn’t put it that way. I just couldn’t resist the pun.)
There’s lots more — it takes a whole book, after all — but you get the picture.
