This approach to her fellowman is so very evident in this BECAUSE MONEY MATTERS – one of her finest books in a growing list of superb self-help tomes. She opens with a Prelude ‘How this book began’ – ‘I wanted to write a personal finance book that inspires people to take an honest assessment of who they are, where they are, and where they want to be. I wanted to encourage people to find out more about themselves and the things that are important to them. And, I wanted to encapsulate essential and timeless ideas that can be passed from one friend to another or from a mother to her child.’ And goes on to state ‘‘This book isn’t about getting rich quickly; it is about building your wealth over time so that you have the freedom from being beholden to anything or anyone.’ Open the pages here and welcome to the practical wisdom of an author who cares – who shares her life freely and extends that learned information to help us.
According to her title, expect 8 principles – Earn as much as possible, Spend less than your earn, Never waste, Negotiate always, Stay away form getting into debts, Get rid of your debts fast, Live up to your standards, and an Invest model. Additionally she offers 3 steps to build our wealth – make a plan to your financial situation, Implement your plan, and Monitor your progress and adjust your plan. These valuable guideposts are simply areas that she uses as springboards to teach and demonstrate her wise management of controlling our income and expenditures – and with this advice it would be difficult to fall into that trap of growing old without a safe income source. Brilliant book by a caring person (who happens to communicate very well indeed!). Grady Harp, August 17

Unlike most financial self-help books, this book provides more of an overall philosophy about discovering what's important in your life, combined with real practical financial advice that you really can use every day. There is also a great list of tools and links to articles and blogs for further reading.
The author’s personal story was quite inspiring. It puts everything into perspective for people like me who have had a relatively easy life (and still ended up in debt) as well as for people who have experienced difficulties.
I really liked the references to the author’s mother and her words of wisdom sprinkled throughout. It makes it a really personal and enjoyable read, and just more relatable. It made it feel like getting control over my finances and spending is something I can actually achieve. I’ve already dipped back into this book many times, and have used some of the tips provided. I’m definitely noticing a difference in my approach to shopping. I’m much more thoughtful about purchases and more aware of emotional versus practical spending.
This book really did make a substantial change in my mindset and approach to finances. I highly recommend it
