What book(s) on Personal Finance would you recommend to a beginner?


More specifically, I'm interested in the technical side of things, what types of interest rates are there, how they are calculated, bonds, stocks, annuities,etc. Rather than behavioral knowledge, I would like to know more about how things really work behind the scenes.

    CPA Keith is right.

    Suze Orman is non-biased on her financial information.

    And she really breaks things down for everyone to understand.

    Her older books go into more detail than Young, Rick & Fab. Broke. They are usually on sale at book stores b/c she has newer books out, but they are very informative.

    Good luck!

    Suze Orman's books are good and she provides the most sound financial advice.

    I personally liked "The Money Book for the Young, Fabulous & Broke"

    In my opinion, the best book to introduce EVERYTHING about financial planning, investing and money is Ric Edelman's "The Truth About Money" Make sure to get one of the newer editions. This book is very readable, and not too dry.

    I reread it every few years.
