The Die Broke Complete Book Of Money
HarperBusiness, January 2001
The incredible economic growth of the past few years may have made scores of new millionaires and plenty of people rich, but it hasn’t made managing your personal and business finances any easier.
In fact, most of the old rules and principles have proved ill suited to this new world. What’s needed is a user’s guide to the new economy — a handbook for everyone looking to succeed in this new, fast-paced environment.
In this single, highly unconventional financial reference volume, America’s most trusted financial consultant and author of the bestselling Die Broke and Live Rich takes an aggressive approach to the new economy and tells you everything you need to know about money.
The Die Broke Complete Book of Money is the definitive guide to modern money management. The man famous for turning conventional wisdom on its head expounds on the new rules for the new millennium with opinionated, hard-hitting, and informative entries on everything from accessory apartments to zero-coupon bonds.
Pollan’s clients are grappling with today’s financial challenges — and his advice is battle tested in the real world. Putting the old rules aside, he sees the worlds of consumerism, career, business, and personal finance as being inseparable — money has to be considered as a whole unit rather than as different elements. And because he’s a practicing financial adviser who deals with real people, he knows financial decisions shouldn’t be made in a vacuum: emotions, feelings, and attitudes must come into play. By explaining what you should do and how you should do it, Pollan offers advice grounded in a hands-on, real-world approach that is easy to understand and simple to follow.
Savvy, sophisticated, and succinct, this incisive and engaging book is filled with offbeat, practical advice that stems from Pollan’s unconventional strategies. It is an indispensable guide to money for anyone who plans on succeeding in the new economy.
