“In When She Makes More, Farnoosh Torabi unmasks the challenges female breadwinners face and provides solid solutions for protecting your finances and your relationship.”
—Tory Johnson, Good Morning America contributor and New York Times #1 bestselling author of The Shift
 
“When She Makes More is an inspiring, optimistic book that equips today's female breadwinners with smart solutions for overcoming the personal and professional trip wires of our new economic reality.”
—Barbara Corcoran, author of Shark Tales and host of The Millionaire Broker with Barbara Corcoran on CNBC
                     
“I predict Farnoosh’s ground breaking book will save more relationships than couples counseling ever could.  Superbly researched, well-written, engagingly fun, I couldn’t put it down.  Every working woman, married or single, needs to read this empowering guide! I’m so grateful I did.”
—Barbara Stanny, author of Secrets of Six-Figure Women
 
When She Makes More is a book of liberation from old ideas about women in the workforce who want to have it all. Torabi’s intelligence, respect for research, and vibrant prose put the book in an elite class with the best self-help books from financial gurus and masters of psychological nonfiction.”

Format: Hardcover
This book is full of dated stereotypes about men and women and obnoxious statements about the gender roles "in our DNA" that I'm not even going to refute because I assume you're smart enough to read a biology text. It also contradicts itself, saying in one place that couples should think of all money coming in as "our money," and in another place that the wife should pay the mortgage and the husband should pay the cable. Also, obvious things like you shouldn't require your husband to ask your permission to buy a Coke and a candy bar, because that's humiliating. NO ONE likes to have to ask permission from a spouse to buy little things. That's not a masculine or feminine thing, just part of being an adult human!

It also says to leave your baby in daycare for long hours so you can build up seniority to spend more time with him when he's older, since babies don't know the difference between you and the baby-sitter anyway. Dumb. Insulting.

Two stars instead of one because I do agree that it is important to iron out the money issues in any marriage--money can be a sticking point for anyone--and because it reminded me to be grateful that my husband and father are both grown-ups perfectly content to hang out the laundry and wash the dishes while their wives work, not toddlers who expect their needs to be catered to all day long.

Farnoosh's advice immediately struck a chord with me because I'm one of those men who earned less. My spouse and I have enjoyed nearly 28 years of marriage while figuring out our own roles-- and dealing with the scrutiny of family & friends. My spouse and I kept ourselves focused on the real goal of financial independence, and the book's practical money-management techniques really work.

Guys, don't worry: this is not a male-bashing polemic. There's no psychobabble. You'll learn how two genders will see the same situations in very different ways, and you'll know how to respond to those differences. The book is based on hundreds of interviews with couples and counselors, and they've figured out how to deal with the inevitable debates to keep it all together. Our emotions and reflex responses may try to hijack our brains, but you'll learn how to get back on track instead of reacting.

10 easy (and very entertaining) chapters will show you how to level up your communications skills and share your couple's responsibilities. It's not about who earns more, but rather how each of you contribute to the relationship. You'll also learn how to handle the critical commentary of your family (particularly mothers-in-law) and the rest of society.

It's a great read, and my spouse and I kept nodding our heads in recognition. Our daughter is getting her copy as a bonus college graduation gift.

I bought the hard copy for my daughter and downloaded the book to my Kindle. The author has great advice for anyone in a relationship. Money can be a source of dissent for many couples and I strongly advise all women to read this book. She has great resources for managing money issues. It's best to have a discussion about finances before you get married and this book serves as a great guide for doing so. Well written.

This book was written to help younger women who are primary breadwinners to navigate sensitive financial issues within their relationships. Many people may not think that the issue is a concern (depending on their background, age, position, and relationships) but I have seen others struggle with issues that Farnoosh explores. For example, I have seen a husband become jealous of his wife when she snagged a high-paying job; or feel lesser than because he's not the main provider in the family.

Drawing on research, real-life examples, and advice from psychiatrists, financial planners, and even a divorce lawyer, Farnoosh discusses rules for happiness in marriage and relationships relating to money. She does a great job of identifying key issues that should be discussed and decided upon throughout various life stages. She adds her own personality to the discussions but doesn't offer one-size-fits-all solutions.

You don't have to agree with every stance or perspective to get value from the book. If money affects your relationships (and it generally does in both obvious and not-so-obvious ways), then you should consider reading When She Makes More.

As a breadwinning woman, I truly relate to the message and spirit of this book. When I was married, my ambitions and my professional growth were attributable to the decline in my relationship because I didn't really know how to handle being the one who earned more money - and by extension, I took more control over decisions and the direction of the family which caused a strain. Dealing with relationships when she makes more is something that we need to start talking about. And something that we need to teach our women to help them learn how to navigate in this emerging reality.

I agree with Farnoosh that it's not about feminism anymore; it's about an economical dynamic that does in fact affect the relationship between a man and a woman. Specifically when both genders are subconsciously (and consciously) taught that men have their role and women have theirs. So, when the woman assumes the position of "power" as the top earner in the household, it creates confusion and a situation that we have not yet been equipped to handle effectively.

This book is the beginning of an important conversation...it's a must-read and provides important tools for breadwinning women.
