The incredible economic growth of the past few years may have made scores of new millionaires and plenty of people rich, but it hasn't made managing your personal and business finances any easier.
In fact, most of the old rules and principles have proved ill suited to this new world. What's needed is a user's guide to the new economy -- a handbook for everyone looking to succeed in this new, fast-paced environment.
In this single, highly unconventional financial reference volume, America's most trusted financial consultant and author of the bestselling Die Broke and Live Rich takes an aggressive approach to the new economy and tells you everything you need to know about money.
The Die Broke Complete Book of Money is the definitive guide to modern money management. The man famous for turning conventional wisdom on its head expounds on the new rules for the new millennium with opinionated, hard-hitting, and informative entries on everything from accessory apartments to zero-coupon bonds.
Pollan's clients are grappling with today's financial challenges -- and his advice is battle tested in the real world. Putting the old rules aside, he sees the worlds of consumerism, career, business, and personal finance as being inseparable -- money has to be considered as a whole unit rather than as different elements. And because he's a practicing financial adviser who deals with real people, he knows financial decisions shouldn't be made in a vacuum: emotions, feelings, and attitudes must come into play. By explaining what you should do and how you should do it, Pollan offers advice grounded in a hands-on, real-world approach that is easy to understand and simple to follow.
Savvy, sophisticated, and succinct, this incisive and engaging book is filled with offbeat, practical advice that stems from Pollan's unconventional strategies. It is an indispensable guide to money for anyone who plans on succeeding in the new economy.

This comprehensive reference from the authors of the bestselling Die Broke and Live Rich covers every imaginable topic from living wills and insurance to mentoring. While much of the advice is sound and helpful, the book covers so much ground that it may prove daunting to readers. In addition to specific subjects related to money, such as debt, real estate and investing, there's also a great deal of advice on career issues, including buying a franchise, selecting office equipment, hiring temporary help and more. There's even help on such specialized subjects as budgeting for garden and pet care. The most useful sections are the advice boxesDincluding "secrets of dealing with cranky creditors," "saving money on moves" and "learning the lingo," which defines college aid financial terms. Here, readers are given concrete steps they can act on. However, with so many other sources of helpDboth online and offDmost people would be better served by a book offering more focused, detailed advice on specific topics rather than the brief summaries here. (Jan.) Forecast: Given the success of Die Broke as well as the extensive 25-city public radio campaign, online promotion and other publicity planned for the authors, this is likely to sell briskly initially, especially at larger chains.
