Most people give up on money management for the same reason they quit dieting--it's just too hard to manage all the details, so they forget it all together. But handling your personal finances doesn't require complete budgets or technical spreadsheets.Economist William Wood says that it's better to do something imperfectly than to do nothing at all. Rather than tracking every penny, you're better off following basic, general guidelines that will help you avoid common financial pitfalls.Filled with real-world examples and illustrations, this book offers simple, practical advice for getting your finances in order, with sound help for reducing debt, spending less and saving more. Even in today's uncertain economic climate, you can invest in ways that give you stable, long-term growth. Wood provides commonsense approaches to topics like credit cards, insurance, mortgages, mutual funds and much more.Ultimately Wood reminds you that money is not only for your own benefit; good financial stewardship creates opportunities to give and provide for others. Wood's blend of financial expertise and biblical wisdom shows how Christians can honor God with their money. Whether you are starting college, buying your first home or approaching retirement, here is a sensible approach to personal finances that anybody can handle.
