Editorial Reviews

Review

Suddenly Single is one of several books recommended as a valuable resource for handling investments, taxes and legal impediments if you don't fit the definition of a nuclear family. "The basics, from financial writer Kerry Hannon: investing, estate planning, saving for retirement."--U.S News & World Report

An article featuring an excerpt of Suddenly Single was recently published in USA Today. "This special report will help you gain control of your finances if you find yourself suddenly single."--USA Today

From the Publisher

A personal finance guide for women who must learn to manage their own money-often for the first time. Approximately half of all marriages end in divorce. What's more, women, on average, live seven years longer than men. Suddenly Single is written for the ever-growing group of divorcees and widows facing the often overwhelming task of becoming solely responsible for their own economic well-being.

Format: Paperback
This is an excellant book for any women interested in handling her own affairs. I recommend it for anyone wanting to take care of themselves financially. She has some great pointers. The book is easy to read and not to technical.

Format: Paperback
This book has practical advice for anyone - male, female, single, divorced, widowed. It has become my well-worn financial "bible". I just wish I had read it before I became single!
