Kenneth M. Morris and Virginia B. Morris update this now classic handbook to the fundamental principles that govern personal financial management. The Wall Street Journal Guide to Understanding Personal Finance covers the basics of banking, credit, home finance, financial planning, investing, and taxes in a concise and unambiguous manner. The details--amplified by graphics and peripheral data that consistently make its points easier to understand--range from the pros and cons of different types of banking institutions and the various kinds of checking accounts they offer, to the methods available for handling credit-card billing errors and the steps to employ when deciding how large a mortgage one can afford. Obviously, a book of this nature cannot fully answer all questions that might arise in every area it addresses; this one, however, goes a long way toward providing the relevant information that most readers will need to make knowledgeable decisions on their own. --Howard RothmanAbout the Author:
