2018.01.16 2018: Books on Money Management in the United States
2017 is coming to an end. As the new year is ushered in, many of us are taking another look at our household budgets as well as asset management matters. In an article on December 1, Publishers Weekly introduced several books on the fundamentals of asset management and other practical matters, slated to be published in the US in 2018. 

John Schwartz, a journalist with the New York Times, compiled a multitude of topics related to money in his "This is the Year I Put My Financial Life in Order" on how he took stock of his financial life as he reached his late 50s. The book is geared towards an audience in their 40s and 50s, and gives advice—in layman's terms—on a range of topics such as investment and estate planning, while reiterating the need to plan for the second half of our lives. 

Kristin Wong's "Get Money" comes equipped with exercises, worksheets, and quizzes pertaining to the basics of money presented in a game-like manner for readers. Wong writes "Two Cents" articles on the Lifehacker blog, and says that her intention is to motivate and build the readers'confidence in managing their money well. She wants her book to be used until it is dog-eared, replete with notes, highlights, and folded pages.

Catey Hill, a mother to a two-and-a-half-year-old, is expecting to publish her book "The 30-Minute Money Plan for Moms," a household budgeting book for parents with small children, in May. Hill writes about how to save money even if you don't have the time to find the best deal, and ways to manage your budget quickly. Each of her advice is divided into 30-minutes tasks. The thinking behind this is that no matter how busy we are, we can put aside 30 minutes a week for household budgeting. 

Meanwhile, as of late December, Amazon Japan's top-ranking sellers in the household budgeting and savings category are user-friendly and simple ledgers which are easy to keep, and ledgers geared for savings, collectively called the "Kakei Note (household budgeting notebook)."  

Regardless of which side of the ocean we live on, money matters can always be a headache. In the coming year, why not take a look at one of these books to reassess your asset management situation and find better ways to have control over your finances?
