This book is also being used for Women and Money conferences being sponsored by state treasurers, YWCAs, and Women’s Commissions around the country.

Money, a simple title, but not a simple book. Everyone knows how important it is to make the most of their money. You try to spend wisely and save as much as you can. But to achieve true financial success you’ll have to move beyond the basics and learn about money management.

The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Retiring Early is all about catching the golden ring before age 65. So much of Dee’s time is spent advising pre-retirees that a book about retiring early seemed a natural. What you need to know to achieve that illusive dream of an early retirement is all included in the book. It’s fun and easy reading.

The Complete Idiot’s Guide to 401(k) Plans, recently updated is essential resource material for the retirement plan participant. The title here is misleading for the book was not written just for the novice investor but offers the more sophisticated reader the opportunity to learn about retirement plans as well.

Let’s Talk Money, is a book written to help the reader understand the maze of personal finance and to learn to invest the old fashion way. Dee’s books are available in bookstores or at amazon.com.

Dee believes in the importance of financial education. She has teamed up with state treasurer, Tim Cahill to help him educate the women of Massachusetts. Check her site (www.deelee.net) to find a free women and money conference near you.
