A Mind for Money: Financial Survival.

People are looking for financial plans that satisfy like a full-course meal. So, John B. Slaughter II, host of a syndicated finance radio talk show giving advice on personal money management, wrote A Mind For Money. Alas, his slim book may serve only as an appetizer.

Granted, some chapters are promising. Among other issues, Slaughter shows how to: create a financial mindset; pick a financial advisory team; straighten out credit; and learn to save more money.

But he does not show how to purchase bonds or stocks. There is no explicit information on real estate investment, investing in a 401(k) plan or tax planning. And though he cites three model mutual fund portfolios, he doesn't explain why a growth fund differs from an equity fund. The bottom line: This book is not enough for a hungry investor.
