“The Finish Rich Dictionary” Book Review and Giveaway

After reviewing and giving away 3 copies of the “Skinny On” books, I got a bit of an urge to get through more of my book pile. Up next: “The Finish Rich Dictionary: 1001 Financial Words You Need to Know” by David Bach.

I’ll admit it’s difficult to review a dictionary, and I’m definitely not going to read through the whole thing, but I picked out a few key terms, and skimmed through others, to see how David defines each.

What makes this dictionary different than just Googling the search term, or looking it up on Well, not much, but you do get focused financial articles such as “How to buy a home”, “Understanding your credit score”, “Top 10 money mistakes that people make”.

However, I’m not going to try to write a glowing review for one reason. While this is a great resource to have, I foresee only a niche audience who would actually need to BUY a copy and use often. For the rest of us, it may just take up space on our bookshelf as we just find the answers online. But on that note, I’m going to give TWO of you an opportunity to win a FREE copy and see for yourself if it would have been worth buying.
