Library Journal Review

Quicken is aimed at managing personal finances rather than at small businesses; the user can track his or her checking, online banking, and Internet-based investing and calculate taxes. Users with a good understanding of financial management will find Negrino's book the better choice for getting started with Quicken. Tinney's explains Quicken almost as well but also includes an excellent discussion of finances in general. Both will do well in public libraries. (c) Copyright 2010.
