People want to know more about money--their own money. As a new century dawns, with countless new ways to manage money and spend it, Chris Farrell provides what is most needed: reliable and up-to-the-minute information on personal finance.

In the tradition of the great "how-to" series on public television, Right on the Money offers a practical, hands-on approach to making savvy financial decisions. In each chapter, finance expert Chris Farrell visits an individual or family facing a financial crossroads in their lives and, aided by a team of street-smart experts, helps them take control of their finances. From setting up a budget to saving for retirement, Right on the Money not only gives readers the knowledge and tools they need, but also shows how to make informed decisions among the options at hand. Subjects discussed include balancing love and money, investment, the stock market, dealing with credit card debt, buying a car, buying a home, creating a household budget, and paying for college. Informative and fun, with a "roll-up-your-sleeves-and-solve-the-problem" attitude, Right on the Money is destined to become a new classic of personal finance.
