Making the Most of Your Money Now by Jane Bryant Quinn is a massive 1,200 page tome of personal finance information.
The book starts with a must read introduction to Quinn and her experience with money. It goes back to her childhood days as a page at a local public library, her paycheck to paycheck lifestyle when she first started working, her first experience with stockbrokers and mutual fund mistakes, all the while picking up personal finance insights that will be expanded upon later in the book. Reading this introduction, a prologue of sorts, gives you an understanding of why Quinn is qualified to write such a book. She’s lived and learned a tremendous amount, even when the book was first released in 1991, and she’s captured it in a mere 1,200 pages.
