A very basic introduction to investing that doesn’t capture the broader perspective of how it fits within sociopolitical development and without noting the nature of risk adequately.

Everyone will at some point or other in their lifetime come to the realization that wealth management is quite beneficial for realizing your projects. This can, and should start at an early age, and at the time I discovered this book, I was just waking up to the fact that I would have an advantage by knowing where I stood financially in the world.
I recommend this book for the absolute beginner. Any experience in personal wealth management will render this book of minimal usefulness.

If "your finances reflect the history of your life more than they reflect a comprehensive plan for your future," this book may break the chain of "financial illiteracy passed on from generation to generation" by helping you "make a short list of your financial marching orders" from here to mature financial habits and arrangements.

This was an incredibly useful book. It provides a concise road map for the home buying process along with tips on how to conduct the process. I will be referring here often during the next year.
