The very first personal finance book that I ever read was David Bach's Smart Women Finish Rich. II was in my early 20's at the time, and it was the financial education I never got in school on how to improve your finances. It opened my eyes to a lot of things - about how spending is a reflection of our values, the power of saving consistently over time, and how to avoid common financial mistakes.
Over the years, I have read some of David Bach's other books as well, so I was looking forward to the release of his latest, The Latte Factor.
This book is different from Bach's other books. It's a parable that teaches basic personal finance concepts through the story of a young woman named Zoey. The text is very readable for a book about personal finance, and Zoey is a very relatable character. If you are having a hard time figuring out how to save for the things you want, I highly recommend it.
