Decent summary of important concepts. Personally, I thought Rich B*tch by Nicole Lapin was more of a practical guide for budgeting while this felt more educational in tone. It does have a great section on understanding retirement accounts and investing options. Overall, a good read.

Extremely readable, easy-to-understand, and comprehensive. If you read one book about personal finance, this should be it!
