When I told friends and colleagues I was writing a book on personal finance, I noticed a few raised eyebrows. My degrees and career were not in accounting, finance, or economics. I didn't even like math in school.
I don't claim to have all the answers. I can only share my experiences and hope you learn something from them. I grew up in a middle-class home, never starved, never felt terribly deprived, but neither did I have every luxury handed to me. The most important lesson I learned from my parents, children of the Great Depression, was a healthy respect for money, that it "doesn't grow on trees," as my mother was fond of saying. I married for love, not wealth, but fortunately my heart led me to someone who shared this same attitude about money.
