Your Money Ratios: 8 Simple Tools for Financial Security by Charles Farrell

Your Money Ratios book coverCheck our catalog for: Your Money Ratios: 8 Simple Tools for Financial Security

Of all the personal finance books that I've read, this has been one of the best. The ratios described help you track your progress towards securing your financial future. Elegant in their simplicity, they rely on a hundred years of financial data to provide a reality check that ensures that you'll have enough money to provide for a secure retirement.
