Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The facts of good money management don’t change for different groups of people; sound principles for one are sound principles for all. Further, we all succumb in one way or another to poor financial habits and decisions - and as unique as we each believe ourselves to be, there’s a burgeoning field of academic study called ‘behavioural finance’ that shows we really have a lot more in common than we think. The earlier we identify our foibles and manage our finances effectively, the better our chances of realizing our goals. It’s no wonder that whole sections of bookstores are filled with financial self-help books, with many aimed at a particular audience (retirees, soon-to-be retired, parents, grandparents, divorced, married, kids...), or focussed on a particular niche subject (RRSPs, RESPs, TFSAs, the Smith Manoeuvre, mutual funds, tax planning....)

While noted Canadian financial journalist, TV host, and author Gail Vaz-Oxlade’s previous efforts have been more narrowly focussed, her latest, Money Rules: Rule Your Money, Or Your Money Will Rule You, is aimed at a general audience. In fact, so well does it hit its mark that most of the niche-targeted books listed above could be removed from the shelves and replaced by this outstanding work.

Like the best coaches in sport, Vaz-Oxlade communicates the information clearly, gives an action plan, and then prods and cajoles readers to execute. If you are high school age or older, this book is for you. In fact, if you are within a couple of years either side of high school graduation, this is definitely the book for you.

Format: Paperback
I received this book as a gift. I am a big Gail fan, and have found useful material in all of her books. This latest book presents a lot of topics which most people (especially Canadians) can relate to, no matter their income or personal situation in life.

Long-time fans will feel a sense of déjà vu because some of the book's material has already been introduced on her blog and pod casts, however it's information that is worth preserving and makes for a good book. She has put effort into refining certain topics and writing them in a way that make them easier to digest. The chapter arrangement is random so if you take turns reading aloud with a friend, you can take time to stop and discuss ideas, then pick up the book later, without feeling like the flow of the book got interrupted.

What I enjoy about Gail's writing is that she does not shy away from plain truths, her topics range from basic steps to the more advanced, and she has a gift for explaining more complicated ideas (see umbrella analogy).

PS: the paper back edition has a nice embossed cover if you care about that sort of thing.

Format: Paperback
Who doesn't love Gail? The brevity of each chapter is fantastic for the modern era of blogs and internet attention spans, while Gail's sharp no nonsense writing/wit fit this style very well. I found the tips to be very well done.

My only complaint would be that in a few instances I found her removing the personal from personal finance, and saying that some rules apply to "everyone" when they clearly don't (eg Not "everyone" needs a 6 month emergency fund sitting in a 100% liquid high interest savings account earning 1% interest after tax when inflation is at 2%+; most people do, but many do not). This over generalizing is a common problem in the personal finance world, and she's less guilty of it than most of them, so still 4 stars.

A great read for anyone interested in improving their finances.

Easy to read, and comprehend! For those people whose parents didn't teach them about money management: BUY THIS BOOK.... Then cut up your credit card and use a piece of it for a bookmark.

Lots of good advice so I like it. Did not give it 5 stars because I find her a little rude at times and there just isn't a need to be like that when giving advice to readers, after all if you are reading this book you are already trying to improve your money smarts.
