  •  There's more than a little bad advice... (2+ / 0-)

    ...to be found in that column.

    Aside from the stupid tax bracket advice, I was also really impressed with their budgeting advice that I should be spending 18% of my budget on groceries.  So, as a single person, I should be spending as much money on groceries as an equally paid coworker with a stay-at-home spouse and four kids?  

    So out of the four bits of advice reproduced in the article, one (about raises) was completely wrong and had to be corrected, and a second one (about budgeting) is so generalized as to be completely worthless.  Um, yeah...I don't think I'll be buying that particular advice book any time soon.
