Summary: This text for personal financial planning adopts a life-cycle approach to financial planning. The writing style, designed for readers with diverse educational backgrounds, is informal and relatively non-technical. The emphasis is on practical application and decision making. Concepts are reinforced with diverse real-life examples, up-to-date information, expert advice, and a problem solving format. Easy-to-complete worksheets are integrated into the text. The result ...show moreis a quality text that is current and provides a thorough, conceptually sound treatment of the subject for both students and instructors alike.

  • Life-cycle approach to financial planning. Material covered is relevant to students throughout their lives, starting with career choice and credit management and continuing through retirement planning and estate planning - always tying it back to their own situations.
  • Informal, conversational writing style. PYFF engages the students, rather than reading like a stereotypically boring academic text.
  • Non-technical jargon designed for the diverse background of students taking this course. Mathematics, where presented, are presented with easy-to-understand examples. Note the insurance and investments coverage for the best examples of this.
  • Extensive use of relevant, real-world examples. Students "meet" real people wrestling with current personal finance issues/questions. And the examples are diverse, reflecting the range of situations in 1990s households.
  • An end-of-chapter exercise, "Developing Your Own Financial Plan", takes students step-by-step through the task of developing their own personal financial plan. Retained from the first edition, this has been immensely popular with both instructors and students.
  • Completely updated, including changes in the Social Security system, highlights of the 1998 Taxpayers Rights Act, and changes to the federal fair credit reporting system.
  • All opening chapter vignettes have been changes or updated with many addressing issues or topics directly affecting students.
  • Most chapter boxes have been replaced while the remainder have been extensively updated. "Advice to Generation X" boxes address concerns and issues specifically related to those in their 20s and early 30s. "Financial Toolbox" boxes provide more general information and advice.
