Wow! I can't believe how long I have been away. Nothing was wrong; I guess I have just been busier.

I am looking for suggestions for a book on finances that I can give my daughter. She is in her second year of grad school in a 5 year PhD program which pays her $20k a year. She has no debt and slightly over $11,000 in a savings account. She drives a 2005 Civic with about 50k miles on it.

So far she has done well with budgeting, but I would like her to have some more guidance than I can give her.

Thanks in advance!

It should not take five years to get a Ph.D. My program took three years.
