Talking Dollars and Making Sense: A Wealth Building Guide for African-Americans.
Although it starts off spelling out the reasons behind African Americans' lack of investment savvy, Stephen's book isn't meant to be a 300-odd-page tirade. Instead, if readers wade through the statistics and rather bleak overview, there's a trove of very good, fundamental advice on everything from buying a home to estate planning. Stephens has provided a good collection of financial planning basics and this book is particularly recommended to people starting to get their finances in order.
Her tips are basic, but thorough. Sections covering the stock market and mutual funds give readers the nuts and bolts and are good launching points for further, more detailed research. Stephens fills the book with plenty of good examples of African Americans setting their finances straight, all in the name of making this an effortless read that's nonetheless quite worthwhile.
