Product description

From Amazon

Smart Couples Finish Rich is about more than the basics of investing. It's also about the basics of life planning, and author David Bach teaches couples how to chart a course together. The principles set out in Bach's bestselling Smart Women Finish Rich can work for couples too--and perhaps help a few fractious marriages along the way. The author urges readers to examine their values and put what matters in their lives first. He then offers simple techniques for setting out specific, detailed goals that will help readers achieve security, a comfortable retirement, and perhaps the realization of a dream such as owning a vacation home or having time to participate in charity work.

Bach acknowledges that life's tribulations can be difficult. But he points out that it's still worth the effort to try to overcome those challenges: "It takes just as much effort to have a 'bad life,' in which you don't get what you want, as it does to have a 'good life,' where you do. So, given the choice, why not go for the good life?" Bach's style is conversational and his text comes alive with anecdotes about couples who have transformed their lives. Many who read it are likely to find the tools and inspiration to do the same. --Carolyn Leitch --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

From Publishers Weekly

Bach, author of the bestselling Smart Women Finish Rich and host of a popular PBS series, offers his advice on how couples can keep their financial lives in sync. Familiar financial strategies on routine concerns, such as investments, retirement and insurance, form the bulk of the book. However, Bach's work does distinguish itself in one critical area: Bach believes that all couples (gay and straight, married and unmarried) need to identify values as well as goals as their first step toward achieving financial security. As he explains, values have to do with "being" (e.g., security, health, spirituality, fun), while goals are related to "doing" and "having" (e.g., playing golf regularly, taking frequent vacations, retiring with a million dollars). Moreover, he avers, not only is money management an issue that couples should plan and work on together, it is one that they should talk about, in a positive way, all the time. For example, Bach firmly believes that all couples need to be aware of their spending (what he calls the "latt‚ factor," or being more conscious of the regular little purchases they make each day) in order to make positive changes in their financial lives. Agent, Jan Miller. (On-sale date: Mar. 6)Forecast: Given Bach's previous success and the support of a five-city author tour and 22-city radio satellite tour, this book will quickly move toward bestseller lists, though its ho-hum approach doesn't mark it as a future evergreen paperback.
