Get Good With Money: 10 Simple Steps to Becoming Financially Whole

Tiffany Aliche. Harmony, $24 (304p) ISBN 978-0-593-23274-3
Fixing one’s finances is a lot of work, but it’s worth it every time, cheerleads financial educator Aliche (The One Week Budget) in this encouraging guide to “financial wholeness.” Being financially whole, Aliche writes, means having a “plan for each area of your finances so that they are constantly working on your behalf, regardless of where you currently are in life.” Aliche divides her advice into 10 topics—budgeting, saving, digging out of debt, etc.—and for each shares steps for planning and executing: one chapter shows how to create and maintain a budget, and breaks down the steps to accomplish it. While topics such as investing and planning one’s estate are familiar, Aliche’s guidance shines in the practical, spirited advice: “My plan shifts your mindset to one of savings being a tool to help you weather a financial storm,” she writes. Aliche addresses the emotional side of money, as well, and urges readers to “focus on the solution” and make the fixes they need to achieve financial freedom. Aliche’s can-do attitude makes this an excellent primer for anyone looking to improve their financial picture. (Mar.)
