Title: 60 Minute Money Workout
Author: Ellie Kay
Review: Personal finance is one of my all time favorite subjects, a number one hobby for me. I think I have read almost every book in our library on the subject. When I saw this as an offered book on Blogging for Books I immediately ordered it. I love budgets and making ends meet. Income is such a personal thing and yet I wish I could talk to everyone I know about it.
This book is broken into sections to help you find the areas that you need the most. I found that to be helpful, and the way you would break up a budgeting session into a warm-up, cardio, cool-down and then a reward was great. I think that the author had many great ideas and stated them in an easy to follow format, but I have other financial experts that I enjoy hearing from more.
Dave Ramsey is one of my favorite experts on personal finance and if this is an area of interest to you then check out his book, The Total Money Makeover. This book is easy to follow and interesting to boot.
If you need help in the area of money management then check out this book or many others out there. It doesn’t matter how you get your financial life in order, it just matters that you do.
