I have several personal finance books that I've purchased throughout the years. However, none of them provided me with as much knowledge as this one did. This is an easy to read, easy to understand book that covers the basic money principles everyone should know. I have recommended it to several of my friends - even those who aren't single moms! This book isn't for the savvy, financial investor. It's for those just starting out on the road to financial independence.

I bought this for a penny, and I'm still giving it just two stars. Every other personal finance book I own or have gotten from my library has been more practical and more interesting to read. Maybe I've just read too many of these books and have personal finance book fatigue--there is a LOT of repetition from book to book on this topic!

That said, if I were in a situation of dealing with child support, I might get something out of that section. I imagine it's quite difficult to find specific advice about that topic, so hopefully some folks will find that section useful.

The author, a former single mom, gives some practical suggestions about improving the single mom's circumstances. The most valuable part of the book (for me, a mom with a stable income) is the section where the authors explain practical ways to think about retirement and possible ways to invest your money. They explain various CDs, IRAs, bonds, funds, insurance, etc. The explanations are basic and good for women who have a steady job, stable life, and now have to think about the future.

There are sections about getting out of debt, saving, health/life insurance, and starting your own business. Some of it is common sense but all suggestions make sense. Now, the hard part is doing it!!

It's a very practical book in a no nonsense, neutral tone.

easy to read and understand but the majority of the suggestions in this book are nothing new. i would suggest borrowing this book before buying it.
