Can you recommend a book on money management?

Hi, my niece recently got a decent job and will be moving out on her own. She is also getting married this summer and I would like to get her a book on money management and budgeting. Any recommendations?

I'm a big fan of Dave Ramsey's The Total Money Makeover!

"Your Money or Your Life". It's dated now, but the basic philosophy is sound.

"Cash Trails" is a good i-phone app for tracking spending and income. I highly recommend some sort of app like that (way easier than writing it all down and you can export as an excel document.
