Singletary's new book is a guide for surviving the money woes caused by the pandemic and other crises.

It’s Midday on Personal Finance. Tom's guest today is the award-winning personal finance syndicated columnist for the Washington Post, Michelle Singletary. Her latest book is a hands-on, step by step guide to navigating out of financial problems when our money plans are upended by unexpected problems like a pandemic, for example. Global medical crises aren’t the only reason people find themselves behind the eight ball. Recessions happen with some regularity, and many people are just one serious illness or one job loss away from potential financial catastrophe.
