""As Robert L. Hershey points out in his new book, 'All the Math You Need to Get Rich: Thinking With Numbers for Financial Success' . . . none of us can afford to maintain a phobia about math.
"". . . I highly recommend Hershey's book because he uses examples . . . to walk you through the many different mathematical equations you'll need to understand such concepts as percentages, the time value of money, and compound interest.
"" . . . As Hershey says, 'Thinking with numbers helps you to plan ahead, so you'll have money now and money later, too.'""
