Personal Money Management Made Simple with MS Excel: How to Save, Invest and Borrow Wisely, by Spyros Hadjidakis, PhD is probably the best book you could invest in if you're having financial problems. Everything from dealing with banks, to getting loans, to interest rates is covered.
I've taken a great interest in personal money management over the last few years. I've read all the greats, from Dave Ramsey to others, and I'm always looking for additional tips and tricks to save money. One thing I readily admit is that I am not great with managing money via spreadsheets. They confuse more than they help in my opinion, but that is really the basis of Spyros' book on the subject and after reading it, I feel like I have a better grasp of things. There is a whole lot of information packed into this little guide, and you should be prepared to have your computer open so that you can try things out yourself to really get these techniques and practices under your belt.
One of the best things was all the figures and images that Hadjidakis provides to accompany his thoughts. As a visual learner, these helped me more than I can say and will be infinitely valuable for anyone who is like me. Personal Money Management Made Simple should be on anyone's TBR pile. The tips inside are relevant and valuable to anyone, whether you are a financial manager or have never balanced a checkbook in your life.
