When it comes to money management, most of us take a hands-off approach because we're just not confident that we have the know-how needed. But personal finance is actually more personal than it is finance. Tim Maurer has made a career out of distilling complex financial concepts into understandable, doable actions. In this eminently practical book, he shows readers how to

- better understand their values and goals in order to simplify their money decisions
- budget major expenses intelligently
- reduce and eliminate debt
- make vital decisions on home, auto, and life insurance
- establish a world-class investment portfolio
- craft a workable retirement plan
- and more

Readers will be relieved to see that managing their money is actually not as complicated as they thought--and that they can take control of their financial future starting today.
