If the state of today’s economy is keeping you up late at night, then you should make good use of those late waking hours by referring to The Finish Rich Dictionary. In it, financial guru David Bach provides clear, concise and user-friendly definitions of the financial terms that now more than ever constantly permeate our news and our conversations.

The dictionary is distinguishable from others since it targets the financial world. It used to be sufficient to direct all of our money into a single investment vehicle (though never advisable) or to delegate our money-managing responsibilities. The current economic turmoil has highlighted the need for us to abandon these problematic tendencies, and these circumstances just cry out for the down-and-dirty financial education that this dictionary provides.

Most of the definitions are of a length comparable to other standard dictionaries, with a few words deserving of expanded explanations. In addition, there is a list of common financial equations that might become relevant. While I am actually not naïve enough to think that anyone will actually read the dictionary from cover-to-cover, I know I will sleep a little better know that this source of knowledge is readily available.
