If someone asked me last week what P2P stood for I would’ve guessed they were talking about a video game. But now, with the help of “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Person-to-Person lending,” I know better. The book explains the increasingly popular loaning practice of P2P while providing other useful personal finance advice.

It’s an easy to understand book and it walks the reader through the ins and outs of P2P lending. Whether you are interested in the borrowing side or the lending side, there is a ton of information for you in this book.

My favorite part is the quarter of the book devoted to all of the different websites out there. P2P lending is after all an online venture, and I definitely feel more comfortable with the process knowing which websites to use to avoid being scammed.
