We are different. Women live longer and are more likely to live alone for significant periods of time. Our workplace participation is more intermittent, and the care of dependents falls to us more often. Though we are educated and successful, earning more now than ever before, we often lack confidence in our ability to make financial decisions. In short, our financial nee We are different.

    I can't recall how I heard about this book, possibly from BOOKLIST Magazine. I am always interested in reading good basic books about finance that I can recommend to young people. This is just such a book. It's a fast read and is more approachable than Jane Bryant Quinn's new thick thick tome that young people find intimidating and too heavy for a casual dip in the pool.

I am always interested in reading good basic books about finance that I can recommend to young people. This is just such a book. It's a fast read and is more approachable than Jane Bryant Quinn's new thick thick tome that young people find intimidating and too heavy for a casual dip in the pool. Blayney, a certified financial planner, did a seminar at her alma mater Mt. Holyoke and realized that she was surrounded by intelligent women who had no confidence when it came to finance. Her book is not preachy and not trendy. She talks about how women generally learn best collaboratively and how this can be accomplished without revealing exact financial details. For instance rather than saying you spent $3000 a year on clothing you can create a pie chart to share with the group that puts spending in categories. Women live longer and don't earn as much as men, they stay home with children and therefore can have very different financial viewpoints than men. They do control a large bit of the country's wealth but are rarely treated as such. I appreciated when she said that "Not knowing where your money goes is as detrimental to your financial well-being as not having the money in the first place." Amen. Her glossary details terms that some people may not be familiar with but she also cautions readers not to get sucked in by hype. She gives you questions to ask any financial planner. I agreed with much of what she presented and thought it was approachable and a book I'd easily recommend to young people. It may be self-published I am not sure, it's well-presented and has been edited. Pick up this and Ray Lucia's latest, move into Jane Bryant Quinn, and you'll have a super education about personal finance.

    3.75 stars, rounded up. Strong writing, good explanations, important topics, many resources. I've had this book for a while and meant to read it...I'm not sure why, once I picked it up, it took me so long to read it. It's not bad; I think since it's information I already know, I had trouble staying engaged, but it would be great for a woman wanting to take control of her financial life. (so basically any woman!) A few of my favorite quotes: "You should not seek coddling from your planner. You need 3.75 stars, rounded up. Strong writing, good explanations, important topics, many resources.

A few of my favorite quotes: "You should not seek coddling from your planner. You need to be challenged to be and do your financial best." This should apply to anyone you seek advice from in any capacity! "... make choices to ensure our spending is deliberate and purposeful...we need to elevate the act of spending into the act of purchasing." So, live with intention, even in your financial life. Relating to children: "Generosity can be as crushing as stinginess..." Yep.
