Canadians are saddled with over 1.4 trillion dollars in consumer debt and less than 75% have three months’ savings in an emergency account. If they want to be financially free,something has to change. It starts with this book! The Money Book for Everyone Else is a guide that will teach you:• How only paying what your credit card company requests might leave you burdened with a balance for decades.• How to protect your financial identity and how failing to do so could result in a life-long nightmare.• How to spot and avoid investment scams.• Why certain credit cards could leave you hungry and thirsty on your next flight.• Navigating the world of Canadian tax shelters, along with the basics of investing and debt.• How to repair and maintain your credit score.• Simple tips for being debt-free sooner.• Questions, criteria, and biases you need to be aware of when choosing your financial team.Written in a simple, straightforward style and loaded with lots of real-world examples and stories for Canadians, this book has everything an individual needs to know to become financially savvy. This is not an advanced guide; specific niche topics such as retirement planning, estate planning, and taxation will only be covered as an overview. There are few interactions that will last throughout your entire life, but your relationship with money is one of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Awesome Money Guide! June 26 2011
Finally! A book for everyone, with everything of the need-to-know financial basics all wrapped up in a nice, neat, 247 page package. Don't be fooled by the "everyone else" in the title, though. This book is comprehensive; with many good tips for both the novice and experienced among us in financial matters.

Whether it's credit (worth reading for the information in this section alone), identity protection, real estate, investments, tax shelters, insurance, becoming debt-free, case studies and even end-of-life planning, Kelley Keehn writes with a style that is easily understandable without talking down to the reader. Although she is thorough, the information is written in small bites that are not overwhelming and Kelley provides practical steps that anyone can take to immediately better their financial situation.

In her chapter on tax shelters, Kelly describes common misconceptions such as an RRSP being a type of investment. She goes beyond that, sprinkling a few helpful examples of RRSP strategies throughout. Her section on investments covers mutual fund fees as well as basic taxation of investments and even an explanation of the advantage of negative correlation in your portfolio using umbrellas and suntan lotion - better for us imaginative types than graphs with little dots all over them!

I think everyone, whether just starting out on their financial journey or well down the road, should read this book. Kelley is not only a creative financial writer but in these pages where she again demonstrates her wealth of knowledge, you sense her genuine desire to help people get the most from their money.
