Book Review: Piggy Banks to Paychecks

Financial books aren't normally anything I enjoy reading. If I'm going to sit down and read a book, it's going to be for pleasure. I have to say that pleasure is just what I got from this book.

I was expecting to be bored to tears, but glean some useful financial information from Piggy Banks to Paychecks by Angie Mohr. To be fair, I did get an education and found the glossary in the back to be an especially useful tool, but I was also entertained. She somehow turned finances into something I could stand to read about because she included her own voice and real life situations.

Piggy Banks to Paychecks is a sort of guide to help parents educate their children in the world of finances. It does just that, but does it in such a way that the parent isn't wishing they were watching a good movie instead of reading the book.

Angie Mohr has packed this book with more information that a first year Econ class. It's written in the voice of a parent rather than a dry accounting perspective. Well organized and easy to read, Piggy Banks to Paychecks may just be the best financial book I've read yet. A huge thumbs up to Angie Mohr for a job well done!
