On the other hand, I think the authors generally do not go beyond providing common sense financial recommendations (such as limiting the number of credit cards you have, contributing to an emergency savings account, having an insurance, choosing a mutual fund with minimal management fees etc.)which focus more on whats rather than hows. Potential readers can easily find similar advices through a simple web search. Some of the critical advices provided (power trio of budgeting, investing in index funds etc.)are also too generic and unsubstantiated.
Despite such drawbacks, the book can still be a reasonably value adding guidance for the right audience, the audience who can rate themselves on lower echelons of financial literacy and who do not have complex personal financing needs.
You will be hooked from the start with the call outs and side bars of usable information: The Money Madness section sheds light on the reality that "despite outward appearances of affluence, a shocking number of people are literally just a stone's throw away from financial disaster." The book helps you realize that you are not alone in your financial troubles and that the solutions are readily available in this book.
I highly recommend this readable and informative book.
