Modern American life is filled with the language of mortgages, credit cards, investing, inheritances, pensions, and all the other financial situations we find ourselves in every day. A basic understanding of this vocabulary is essential in making smart money decisions. Comprehensive but never condescending, David Bach explains every term clearly, including a sample sentence and supplemental notes for many entries. In addition, he includes a number of quick miniguides to managing your financial life that include information on understanding your credit and compound interest, balancing your portfolio, making a savings plan, buying property, and purchasing insurance.
