Book Description

You may think that marital bliss means money doesn’t matter, but in today’s troubled economic times, that’s simply false hope. And with layoffs galore and debt mounting, financial stress is through the roof. Think keeping afloat and affectionate is impossible? Think again.

This inspiring, action-oriented guide helps young women in committed relationships understand and manage their money matters. Complete with charts, graphs, case studies, and tip-based advice, this succinct, straightforward guide speaks to worried women in the same way that made On My Own Two Feet a mega-success.

Accessible and easy to follow, the three-part process presented in this book teaches you how to:

  • Accurately interpret your current financial condition
  • Become truly involved in the costs of the couple
  • Move forward using the “three powers steps to financial success”
This expert author team is here to help once more. Clearing up confusion, stating the truth, developing a plan—and now, helping create a happy home.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre book with little practical advice February 15, 2012
By NAF
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you have never had a conversation with your significant other about finances, then this is a useful book. If you have had such conversations, and you are looking for tangible ways to move forward, such as how to set up joint checking accounts, how to share finances, how to budget and how to think about the complicated issues that arise from combining finances, this book is not particularly helpful.

I was lucky enough to get an early copy of the book. Why is it so hard to talk about money with your significant other? This book guides you through ways to think about it, and talk about it, so you keep yourself out of trouble. Lots of very specific advice and exercises to make it easy to take concrete steps, little by little.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommend this book! For single men and women too. December 17, 2009
Format:Paperback
As someone who is looking to create a healthy, loving relationship in 2010, I was so pleased to read Manisha Thakor and Sharon Kedar's latest book. It's chock full of concrete tools for walking into a relationship from a position of financial strength rather than fear. Let's face it - so many of us do NOT know how to have these conversations, myself included. After reading this book, I feel so much more prepared to face head on issues related to money that I would normally run away from. I'm excited about the possibilities this opens up.

One of my favorite aspects of Get Financially Naked is how much Manisha and Sharon share of their personal journeys with money before their relationships (their money stories) as well as during them. They show that it's not about striving for perfectionism but more about open communication with your partner. I felt like if they could do it, I could too! This book is a MUST HAVE for anyone looking to successfully navigate relationships and money.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun and Satisfying Read October 29, 2009
Format:Paperback
After reading the first three chapters, I made a special "date night" appointment with my husband to talk over our finances. We usually keep in close touch about the bills, but I used the questions that are laid out in this book to guide our discussion. And it was fun! We really got into some parts of our financial relationship that we had just assumed the other one understood. It made me feel so closer to my husband, bringing a warmth into our connection that night. Thank you, authors! You are brilliant! I fully recommend this book to all women in any stage of your relationship...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for couples! October 28, 2009
By P. Rao
Format:Paperback
I LOVED this book! It is a quick read and is well written. The issues that the authors address are helpful for any couple. It is a little crazy that often times, most of us just avoid talking about financial topics with our partner. I could totally relate to how differences in financial beliefs/goals can affect relationships, and I found the exercises in the book extremely helpful. In fact, my sister and her husband are newlyweds, and I've already ordered them a copy. I think it's a must read for any couple!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for new couples and newlyweds! January 30, 2010
Format:Paperback
One topic that is the source of many arguments in my household is money, and I am sure I am not alone on that one. For some reason it just season like money is a foreign language between my husband and me. It is not that either of us are bad with money, but that we both want the control. Luckily, since I was a banker, my husband lets me have control and manage our money and he is pretty easy going about it.
I do want him to be involved though in how we spend and save our money so I do like to give him updates and there are times where we need to sit down and talk about our financial situation. I am also open to new ideas and thoughts to make life a little easier.

With all the financial books out there I was skeptical about this one, but I was pleasantly surprise. Other than the typical financial chapters throughout the book, there are also questions with a spot for you to answer them, tables, and lots of bullet points with tips and suggestions. I thought the book was an easy read and it had excellent ideas and ways for couples to start and work through their financial discussions.

The book is broken down into three major parts: Interpreting your current financial situation, Breaking down the costs you have together, and how to move forward together to achieve financial success. I really liked the chapter on "Investing" because that is what my husband and I are focusing on right now. For example, my favorite excerpt from the book deals with at 30 years old, would you rather save all your money to retire in your 50's or live life now and happily work into your 70's.

Overall, I think "Get Financially Naked" is a helpful book for all women. It is geared towards mainly couples and newlyweds, but even as a married woman, I got some great ideas from it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book with guidance for everyone January 7, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Manisha Thakor and Sharon Kedar's book is a great, simple way to get your hands dirty with your personal financial philosophy and then use your newfound knowledge to open up a mature, intelligent discussion about finances with your partner. There are short workbook sections that help you brainstorm and include great examples from other women and the authors themselves. The first section of the book is great- it helps you figure out your own personal financial philosophies and understand how and why you feel the way you do about money; very interesting. This leads to a section on talking all things money "with your honey." The section on investing hows and whys is really fantastic and almost worth the cost of the book itself, more so for people that don't have a lot, if any, experience making long-term investments. I can't recommend this book highly enough for couples.

This book is DEFINITELY for everyone, young, old, male, female, so I guess I was a little disappointed when it was aimed at "all women." The disappointment comes mostly from the fact that I got a lot out of this book and found it incredibly helpful and a great investment (no pun intended, though maybe a little bit), and I am a late 20s working career-minded man in a great long-term relationship, looking to make our relationship even stronger. I guess it felt a little unbalanced, especially in the first half of the book, which is heavy on cautionary tales (all from women). My point is that Thakor and Kedar have written an excellent guide to bring you into the world of personal finance management and I hate to see it so biased to one side (they do acknowledge this fact, and mention in that first section that they chose to embrace it).

Most importantly, regardless of who you are and what type of relationship you are in, it's important and helpful that this book exists. Don't hesitate to drop it in your cart, as its well worth the price of admission.
