The average person has greater need and opportunity to invest and yet less disposable income to risk. Too few people truly understand the implications of the click of the mouse, simply because they do not understand the language and concepts of finance. In "Financial Words You Should Know", the language and concepts will be explained in plain English. People will be able to make educated decisions regarding their personal finances, whether they are saving for a one-time event or working toward retirement. Arranged in standard dictionary form, "Financial Words You Should Know" will be in a familiar, user-friendly format. Throughout the book, key concepts will be highlighted and explained in greater detail. While dealing appropriately with a serious topic, "Financial Words You Should Know" will, at the same time, have a light tone, achieving the feeling of a conversation with a smart friend rather than a lecture from a stern grandparent.
