A guide to Mortgage Rules 2.0

Book Review: 'The New Rules for Mortgages'

If you’re familiar with Bill Maher’s HBO talk show, "Real Time," you’re familiar with his "New Rules" segment at the close of each episode, in which he articulates the rules he’d lay down if he ruled the world — hilariously or outrageously, depending on your particular political leanings.

Dale Robyn Siegel’s new book, "The New Rules for Mortgages," might not be quite as entertaining as Maher’s New Rules, but it is certainly more usable by the average mortgage consumer.
