Here is a book that has been written by the managing editor of the popular PBS personal finance show called Right on the Money.
Since the book is a mirror image of how the PBS television show works, it is interesting to note that every chapter (like every episode) starts with a family or individual confronting a personal finance problem. Solutions to financial problems are provided by leading financial professionals, so, in a sense, this book is a compilation of expertise developed and implemented by some of the most successful financial planners in the country.
Since financial planning today can be a daunting task, Right on the Money provides the reader with background information and ideas for dealing with some of the most important aspects of managing money and financial resources. It also discusses some common financial scenarios such as funding college education for your children, saving for retirement, and purchasing a new home or car.
Farrell relies entirely on specific, personal examples of families taken from the show. His book presents a cross-section of how common problems typically have practical solutions.
Managing your money can become a fulltime occupation. This book lends a helpful hand and answers many questions about how to reduce the workload and take control of your personal finances.
