5.0 out of 5 stars Fun read - great gift, May 29, 2007
This review is from: On My Own Two Feet: A Modern Girl's Guide to Personal Finance (Paperback)
For some time now I have been struck by the amazing lack of financial acumen that my generation has been blessed with. (I count myself in that category, since despite being educated enough to know better I have made a couple of my own blunders). A few years ago I started looking for books to educate my then pre-teen niece to start her financial life on the right foot. We started with "The Millionaire Next Door", then tried "Millionaire Women Next Door". While she enjoyed both books, they were not written as the practical "how to" guides that I thought someone her age should be looking for.

In the meantime, I have grown to know and manage a cadre of women between the ages of 18 and 30, and increasingly realize the need for common sense financial guides to help smart, motivated women make good decisions. I was told about this book - On My Own Two Feet - and it definitely hits the jackpot. It covers the major topics that need to be addressed (savings, credit cards, insurance), but comes off as fun and collaborative. Financial goals are set that seem realistic and reasonable, not extreme and out of reach. If a young woman follows the advice in this book, she will be in a position to manage her finances for life. At a minimum, she will ask the right questions of herself and her partner when making major decisions.

I have bought several copies of the book as birthday/graduation presents and am eager to see their response. I definitely recommend this book.
