Your Money: The Missing Manual a good, basic manual on learning how to manage your money in such a way that it doesn't consume you.
-- Miranda Marquit,(Miranda Marquit)
J. D. Roth's book is a much-needed dose of reality in the world of personal finance, and I would strongly recommend it to anyone looking to "clean house" when it comes to their financial affairs.

Your Money: The Missing Manual is not a cutesy quick-fix for those of you with the 'McDonalds Mentality.' If you're looking for something like that, keep looking. But if you're looking for a real manual, a text book if you will, on money management, spending habits, and the psychological insight needed to understand why we do some of the dunderheaded things we do, this could be your ticket. Your Money The Missing Manual can show you how to get out of debt and to truly understand what makes you, personally, tick. You will learn how to manage your resources so that you can pursue the things/activities that make you truly happy.

If you need a book on personal finance, Your Money: The Missing Manual is a solid choice. It gets all the important stuff right, and does a great job of distinguishing between that stuff (that you have to get right) and the peripheral stuff (that you can do any of several different ways, as long as you do it).
