Very weak writing and presentation of material. There are much better authors and books out there, so give this one a pass.

This book is poorly written and very confusing. It dives right into complex subject matter without any lead-up or background. I know a bit about finances, but even after reading the chapters, when I got to her "test question" I was unable to answer it as she had not even covered the requisite material. Use it for some general background but DO NOT rely on it as a primary source of investing info.

I will give it 2 stars for its info on Canadian credit cards/ credit scores, which is important for anyone wanting to build or re-build credit

This is a Canadian money system book. The most interesting and informational part is about credit cards and credit history. A lot of things I didn't know. Everyone should read the credit area to understand how it works in Canada.
