This primer is brimming with useful, sensible advice on how to manage your money successfully. Financial television reporter and columnist Savage has a knack for explaining even the most abstruse concepts in plain language. She covers investing in annuities, bonds, IRAs, stocks, mutual funds, gold, buying a home or a car, commodities trading, life insurance, and much more. The section on the stock market is particularly insightful. Savage cautions against get-rich-quick schemes: if it's too good to be true, then expect to lose your shirt. The book may not turn a reader into a Bernard Baruch or J. P. Morgan overnight, but novice investors will profit by reading this comprehensive and accessible investment guide. 50,000 first printing; $50,000 ad/promo; author tour. (June)
