Very few people acquire wealth instantly; the rest of us have to make good decisions with our money. This book is for people who want to:
• Make good financial decisions
• Learn the basics of compensation, taxes, budgeting, banking, and credit
• Recognize the importance of starting financial planning early
• Protect and grow their wealth
• Identify financial scams

A recent study from the Economic Policy Institute found the median retirement savings for people between 32 and 37 years old is less than $500. Don't wait to start saving, and don't waste money on "get-rich-quick" schemes. The safest, most proven way to accumulate wealth is through disciplined saving and long-term investing, and Basic Personal Finance shows you how. The authors combine practical advice, serious academic research, and 23 years of classroom experience to help young adults follow a successful path to financial wellbeing. A must read for every high school and college student!
