You work hard -- really hard -- but it seems like there's never enough. Never enough to cover all the bills. Never enough to relax and have some fun. Never enough to save some real money. What has gone wrong? What is the secret that you haven't figured out?
In All Your Worth, Elizabeth Warren and Amelia Warren Tyagi -- mother/daughter authors of the acclaimed The Two-Income Trap -- tell you the truth about money. They lay out the new rules of money -- the ones nobody talks about. They show you how to get out of debt, cover your bills, and start getting ahead -- without needing to carry a calculator everywhere you go. All Your Worth will help you get control over your money once and for all so that you can finally start building toward the life you've always wanted.
All Your Worth isn't based on lucky guesses or gut reasoning; it is the result of more than twenty years of intensive research. As a result, the authors don't offer you a few quick fixes destined to fall apart, and they don't waste time trying to solve problems you don't have. Instead, the authors lay out a breakthrough approach for getting control over your money. And they use this approach to help you conquer your financial problems, step by step. They help you create a plan that isn't just for a week or for a month; this is a plan that lets you master your money for the rest of your life.
The secret? It's simple, really: Get your money in balance. Warren and Tyagi show you how to divide and conquer. You will learn to balance your money into three essential parts: the Must-Haves (the bills you have to pay month after month), the Wants (some fun money for right now), and your Savings (so you can build a better tomorrow). No complicated budgets, and no keeping track of every penny you spend. Once you have the basics, it gets easy. You can put your money worries behind you and get on with what really matters -- living your life.
Whatever your struggles with money, Warren and Tyagi can help you get your finances on the right track. They will show you things about yourself that you have never quite seen. Are you an emotional spender? Is debt robbing your future? Do you spend too little on fun? Are you and your partner trapped in the Money Blame Game? After you read this book, you will never look at your money -- or yourself -- in quite the same way again.
Whether you are knee-deep in past-due notices or you just don't think you're saving enough, money worries can chew away at your life. Warren and Tyagi are here to tell you that you can stop the worry. You can change it all. You can have enough -- enough to cover the necessities, enough to put some real money in the bank and start bringing your dreams into reach. You can even have enough money to have fun. (In fact, they insist that you have enough for fun!) Best of all, with All Your Worth, you can have peace of mind for the rest of your life.

I have been watching Elizabeth Warren on the TARP hearings (she is overseeing them as a watchdog) and looking like a school girl is is so refreshing to see her take on all those nasty old financial tycoons. She always has the important question. I realize I had read this book before and taken from it the message that there are 3 kinds of things we will buy...the essential, the should have and the OPTIONAL. Just go slow on the don't need stuff. (I have 30 pairs of shoes...do I really need those new black sandals ?, another lip gloss, more push up bras for 15 year old granddaughter ?)Also, if you read this book a good book to add, showing what can happen if you don't follow this economist's advice is American Sucker by David DenbyBut what really grabbed me on this latest reading is her warning against debt. How to pass this on to the next generation ?Excellent book on personal finance, everyone, especially those starting out should have this book.more
This is my favorite personal finance book. The contents may or may not come as unpleasant news to some, but all the advice in this book is do-able for everyone. When people are just starting out or are getting in over their heads financially, those are the times they tend to buy this sort of book. There is nothing in this book that is not common sense, but it is presented in the most accessible way, in clear language, with an understanding that real life sometimes doesn't conform to neat charts in a book, but that as long as we make an effort to come close it will pay off. There are no outrageous promises in this book, rather the tone is one of realistic optimism, "Security is within your reach" rather than "Get rich quick!"more
What some might consider to be common sense, others may not know about. This book, from renowned Harvard professor and bankruptcy lawyer Elizabeth Warren strives to fill in the gaps of the financial world with jargonless common sense. Even though my parents gave me a pretty stable financial education, I find this book to be encouraging without offering false promises in a time of financial unrest.more
