Think your money questions are dumb?

Well, they’re not. Or so says my MSN Money colleague Liz Weston, aka the most widely read financial columnist on the Internet. Her latest book, “There Are No Dumb Questions About Money,” is this week’s giveaway.

Liz bases her text on real questions people have asked. In other words, this is information that people like you and I can use.

As a writer she is direct but also compassionate. While she understands how people can get into money trouble, she also is clear that the best person to help you usually is you.

If you have a question or issue you’ve been struggling with lately, I urge you to go to her website, AskLizWeston.com. You will get the benefit of her expertise with the comfort of anonymity.

Note: This title is published as an e-book. It will be sent to the winner as a PDF that can be read on Mac or PC.

To enter:

If you do any (or all!) of these things, please leave separate, additional comments to get credit for each entry.

The deadline to enter is 9 p.m. Alaska Daylight Time on Monday, Oct. 8. If I don’t hear back from the winner by 9 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 9, I’ll pull another name. If you enter, check your e-mail on Tuesday.

    My questions sound mighty dumb to me. I would welcome the chance to be reassured by Ms. Weston.

  7. Elizabeth Waniewski

    Sounds like a great read. Would love to read it!

  9. I get your posts via email. Thanks for the giveaway!

  10. Should be a good (e)book – the more people communicate about money the better off (pun intended?) they will be. Many of the PF bloggers share insight into getting into debt and not the least of it is not understanding how credit really worked, or admitting to the follow-the-crowd-and-just-buy-it mentality. Money issues should not be shame-inducing.

  11. Karen Wheeler
