How to Use This Book

Reading this book by topic rather than starting at the beginning might make the most sense. Start by browsing through the chapters that interest you, and then expand your thinking to the other material. Perhaps you have specific questions about, for example, buying a car, renting an apartment, or investing in retirement savings. if you see a topic that calls to you, feel free to jump to that section. This will help you to build your financial knowledge in a way that best suits your own situation. Note that each chapter ends with a summary of my top points, and there is also a subject index.
