The author definitely has credibility as her income and net worth rank in 1% of Americans while she is from poor family.

The primary message of the book "The art is not in making money, but in keeping it" comes from experience of the author as she became apparently rich by about 30 only to become broke and now at the age about 40 she is on her way to true wealth.

The biggest part of the book is devoted to creating a budget, that is scheme of how much to spend, save and invest. This is strong point of the book.

Another strong point is that the author starts with the end in mind, from question "How much money is enough?" She starts from the bigger picture, and only then goes to such details as saving money on lattes.

Interesting and useful may be method of scheduling life that is practiced by this successful woman.

Two things in the book are rather weak in my opinion:

1. Advice how to increase your income is rather weak. Only general words "the way we can increase out income is by producing more value and becoming more valuable to the others" and opposing words "earning" and "generating income". Nothing more specific.

2. I could not see connection between her monthly investments (17%) and her goal (net worth $25,000,000). In book "Early Retirement Extreme" by Jacob Lund Fisker there are tables and graphs showing dependence of investments as percent of income and time to obtaining financial independence. There is nothing comparable in this book. By the way, to create net worth $25,000,000 for 20 years of equal investments with conservative 8% compound interest rate one needs yearly investment of $500,000, and if it is 17%, the income should be about $3,000,000 per year.

I admire Krisstina for opening a window to her past in order to show us that the knowledge she shares has been earned over years of life experiences. You don't just wake up to a Good Life, you must dream about it, plan for it, and build it. Krisstina doesn't share any one earth shattering money tip, instead she provides an entire system that her family has used to earn their health, happiness, and financial freedom.

You should know that this book isn't as simple as it might appear. There's no doubt it's short, and the concepts have been articulated masterfully. However, if you're anything like me, you'll need to read it multiple times, share it with your spouse, and study it like a student. There are exercises that may take time, but I want to internalize the lessons, not just read the book.

I have known Krisstina professionally for several years and have always been impressed with her energy and abilities.
Now I add her insight to the list. As a professional woman myself, I have faced many of the same issues and appreciate the straight forward approach and practical tools for making better financial decisions.

I admire and value successful people that make it a mission to share their knowledge of success with others. This is exactly what Krisstina Wise has done in Falling for Money. What makes it even more appealing is her passion for helping other women achieve financial freedom of their own. There is a great deal of logic behind her advice and anyone at any level of success can begin to implement her strategies. I could feel a very humble undertone to her book and appreciated the honesty that she shared. I would imagine this is why Krisstina is so successful as an entrepreneur and motivator because she keeps it real. I will be using this book as a reference and not just a novel that I read one time.

The content was excellent, however, the book is in desperate need of being proof-read by a professional for typo's. I love the author's honesty and candor, as well as useful tools. Kudos to Krisstina!

After getting over the skepticism of an author who claims to 'love money', I read Krisstina's first chapter and fell in love with her candor, her story of financial ruin, and the promise of a better life. Unlike other financial 'how-to' books that only focus on the philosophies of money....or those too drab to make it past the first page, Falling for Money is truly a great story with very powerful and easy-to-implement tactics designed to help the reader keep more of the money they own. I highly recommend this for anyone searching for real help to create a better relationship with money. Overall, an easy and great read!

What I liked most was the heart felt sincerity I sensed as I read the many personal stories that I relate to because I have lived them.

I am going to purchase a kindle version for each of my 4 kids, brother and sister, my team members as well as each of my past buyer and seller clients that attend my next client appreciation night I hope to host in January on my return from my recent trip to Russia. I also plan to recommend it to several of my broker owner friends and encourage them to get copies for each of their agents and consider doing a mastermind with the in January but no later than February.

The reason for giving this book a 5 star rating is that it far exceeded my expectations.
