Front Cover
Open Court, Sep 30, 2011 - Self-Help - 224 pages
Written in a lighthearted and humorous style, this comprehensive guide is ideal for the general reader with little math experience who wants to understand the concepts underlying everyday financial decisions. Organized for easy reference, this book provides the necessary tools to make informed decisions about investments, mortgages, insurance, cash flow, and risk-taking.

""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.'""

—Michelle Singletary, Washington Post, February 10, 2002
