Left-Brain Finance for Right-Brain People: A Money Guide for the Creatively Inclined.
Monroe, Paula Ann
This basic money book takes a creative approach for visual learners by using icons, varied fonts, and highlighted text. The book's design will appeal to holistic thinkers by allowing them to jump from point to point without losing overall meaning. It is divided into five sections, each with a subset of related topics: (1) "The Big Picture" looks at financial goals, attitudes, financial inventory, and some basic money rules; (2) "How Money Disappears" discusses consumer debt, inflation, and personal income taxes; (3) "How Money Grows" explains the workings of savings accounts, investments, and home ownership; (4) "Protection" delves into the ins and outs of seemingly every type of insurance policy available; and (5) "Planning and Priorities" provides tips and details on establishing financial priorities, a planning structure, estate planning, and long-range funding goals. A concluding appendix contains information about the Federal Reserve System, tax brackets, community property states, social security benefits, and the definition of disabilities. Includes endnotes and a glossary. (DQE)
