This book is a joke-don't waste your money,
This review is from: The Smart Cookies' Guide to Making More Dough: How Five Young Women Got Smart, Formed a Money Group, and Took Control of Their Finances (Hardcover)
I have read a lot of different books on personal finance. This book was by far the absolute worst. I am just going to take one quote straight from the book and that should sum it up:
"The Smart Cookies have allowed ourselves $100 a week in fun money..."
If you are looking at purchasing this book, I imagine you don't have an extra $400 each month for "fun money". The whole book basically describes their lavish lifestyles and how they got into debt purchasing designer jeans, expensive dinners, etc. There are no practical, proven ways to get out of debt beyond not buying a latte every day and buying designer clothing on eBay.
Save your money and buy a book from Dave Ramsey or David Bach instead. They both offer effective methods for getting out of debt and growing wealth. And here is a parting thought: If these "Smart Cookies" are so smart, why aren't they investing their $5200 a year of fun money in mutual funds instead of blowing it?
