Personal finance is not usually taught in school which leads to learning most financial lessons by making costly mistakes in the real world. Additionally, most financial experts are actually salespeople in disguise whom are looking out for their commission rather than your investment. While you personally do not need to be an expert, having some basic knowledge on personal finance, and doing some research, will drastically help when making financial decisions. This book will start you in the right direction.
Personal Finance Under One Hour does not encompass everything there is to learn about personal finance, but instead is designed to give you a basic overview in only an hour. Let’s be honest, most people do not have the time to read a 300 page book on any topic, but many people can spare an hour.
Many sources, such as books, websites, and personal mentors, have inspired the contents of this book. The goal is to sum up the best information these sources offer so you can get the most important points in the least amount of time. By reading Personal Finance Under One Hour you will gain the necessary knowledge to expand your financial IQ and make better financial decisions.
Under One Hour books are broken down into six 10 minute sections making it easier to read and learn on the go. Each section contains two or three main topics with sub-topics to explore. Bold words or phrases are the highlight of the topic or paragraph while italicized words are ideas to be explored further outside of the book.
