Description:

In an economic downturn that will surely persist into the future, frugal is the name of the game. Food prices have soared and aren't coming down. People have been trading their40,000 SUVs for20,000 subcompacts. Many homeowners are in over their head with mortgages they can't afford. Newspapers are shifting from hard-news reporting on business to consumer news, as readers clamor for more tips on how to manage their money. When it comes to personal finance, many books are just too complicated, too confusing, and too hard to act on. Finally, there's a book that truly keeps it simple, offering advice that anyone can use, and anyone can profit from. Gregory Karp'sThe 1-2-3 Money Bookorganizes every essential money task into three specific steps, telling readers exactly what to do, and how to do it, including specific numbers to call, and specific web sites to visit. You'll learn how to save money by putting your bills on autopilot... which specific brand names to buy in everything from index funds to cellphones... how to make financial decisions that are "good enough," instead of being paralyzed by trying to be perfect... how to improve your credit rating... get the right insurance, without wasting money on unnecessary coverage... save for college... plan for retirement... and much more. Finally, there's a book for everyone who wants simple, reliable financial advice they can act on, without first getting an MBA!
