In contrast to my previous blog post, a big book (1200 pages!) that goes beyond investing to cover every facet of your financial life is Making the Most of Your Money NOW by Jane Bryant Quinn. It is not necessarily a book you read straight through, but contains chapters on all aspects of your financial life, from budget planning to insurance to saving for college to wills & trusts. It is a fantastic resource to dip into when there is a specific topic you need to know about.
It was revised in 2010 to stay up-to-date with your financial information needs.
