9780385487597: Green Magazine: No B.S. Book

Straight-up, jargon-free advice on personal finance for those made nauseous by the phrase "personal finance."

What the hell's a stock? A bond? A mutual fund? And why do I need to know?
Is it better to start investing, or pay off that lingering credit card balance?
Should I borrow money to buy a bungalow? A Jaguar? A jalopy? How?
What's so great about compound interest anyway?
Is the price of this book tax-deductible?

The Green Magazine Guide to Personal Finance answers these questions and provides savvy, sensible money advice for anyone who doesn't want to wade through lots of b.s. Ken Kurson, editor of the critically acclaimed Green magazine, demystifies all types of personal financial matters--investing, retirement planning, credit card debt, student loans, first-time home buying, insurance, taxes--as well as providing valuable information on learning to live within your means, dealing with deadbeat roommates or spendthrift boyfriends, and putting on a cheap wedding. Ken Kurson's engaging yet always pragmatic money-speak is enlivened with real-life examples, pie charts, comics, and dead-on humor. His advice doesn't always sound like Dad's, but it's every bit as solid. The Green Magazine Guide is the only book that speaks to all those who are cynical, intimidated, or simply flummoxed about money matters.
