Why are all the "famous" financial authors seen as Financial Experts? They all come up with what they think works and apply a broad brush stroke to everyone's situation. Don't get me wrong, I've read all of these author's books and have gleaned some great points from them, but because you sell a lot of books does not make you an expert. In fact, Ramsey calls himself a Financial Counselor. What is that? He's not a financial planner, nor a financial expert, rather he invented a new description of what he is. Just one person's opinion, perhaps I am in way too of a negative mood after ripping on Jim Cramer on my most recent post!

Good luck with your article FMF!

Ha! Actually, I'm with you! But these people are selected for the following reasons:

1. They are famous which means people will want to read the article. :-)

2. Generally, the advice from these people is good. (Yes, I have some differences with them, but for the most part, these are "experts" I agree with 80% of the time.) I'm not using quotes from "experts" who I don't agree with.

A woman named Beth Kobliner wrote a really great (and popular) book about finance for your 20s and 30s---you might try her.

Maybe Frances Leonard, author of "Time is Money"? As I've written about previously, this is pretty much my all-time favorite finance book.

Jane Bryant Quinn?
