Book Description

May 1 2012
Credit or debit? Rent or buy a house? Buy or lease a car? Take or decline the rental car insurance? Renovate the kitchen or finish the basement? Buy stocks or mutual funds?

Every day we are forced to make financial decisions, but the right answers all seem to require complicated, mind-numbing research. And who has time for homework when you're paying for a bag of Fritos at 7-11? Or filling out a payroll form on the first day of a new job? Thankfully, there's WORTH IT . . . NOT WORTH IT?

WORTH IT . . . NOT WORTH IT? demystifies complex, real-world dilemmas and breaks the answers down into simple, Do This/Not That solutions. Organized around six basic topics-Getting Started, Shelter, Automotive, Investing, Family Matters, and Retirement-this handy book is the Swiss Army knife of personal finance.

Review

I wish I had written this book! "Worth It/ Not Worth It"-this books is definitely WORTH IT. Jack Otter, is great writer, fabulous editor-and has written a wonderful, fun book that quickly answers your most pressing financial questions. The format is also unique, which I really enjoyed. I think this is a great "gift book" for the graduate season that is quickly approaching. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars WORTH IT AT 10 TIMES THE PRICE May 1 2012
By carlasf - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Worth it....Not Worth It delivers a huge return on two of our most valuable assets: time and money.
The format requires very little of the former. Otter aims for brevity over War and Peace length explanations. You've got questions about personal finance? Otter's got the answers, fast and sweet, but with just enough explanation to give you confidence he knows what the heck he's talking about. It's also a fun read, which should qualify it for some special award given how dry personal finance can be. And as for the money angle...Well, I haven't done the math, but conservatively I bet following just half the advice in this book could save you more than six figures over your lifetime. Worth it Not Worth It is worth it for anyone looking to get on top of their financial life. But it strikes me as especially spot on for any recent college grad you might know: Start out in the real world with Otter showing you the way on the money front and you're gonna be just fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect money book for ANY age - and a great graduation present! May 9 2012
By Lela Bellows Simpson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is the essential 'CLEAR UP MY QUESTIONS', and confusion about so many money issues. I am 46 and finding it is entirely relevant on many levels, but I'm also ordering extra copies for a slew of high school and college graduates because they need to get their head around these issues while they're young. The book is simple, straightforward, and really gives good advice about so many things in your life that relate to money. By taking out the overwhelming detail out it's one you will want to read in one sitting.

2.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Material But ... Aug. 9 2012
By Carlos A. Janada - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The book offers a variety of interesting tips and is worthy of reading it. However, it appears that the book was printed in a rush or under a very tight budget such that several pages have been cut-off at the beginning of the sentences and as a result it is sometimes hard to understand what the book is saying (since we're missing the first few words of each sentence in several pages).
