Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Concerned that her friends—college educated, savvy and otherwise smart professional women—were not honestly discussing their financial situations with their partners, Timmons, founder of an investment firm, explores the reasons for their reluctance and how it can be a ticking time bomb in a relationship. She interviews a wide spectrum of women, 17 of whom are spotlighted in the book; her subjects are single, divorced, widowed, straight and gay—and share in their anxiety and inability to come clean about their finances and discuss money with their partners in sufficient detail and depth. Written as a combination of how come and how to, Timmons deals firmly with the Prince Charming Effect, urging women to develop good financial habits without expecting a man to care for them. These tips, along with thoughtful discussion questions, will encourage women to think more carefully about taking control—and Timmons's firm, encouraging tone will help them learn to communicate about a subject that is too frequently—and foolishly—considered taboo. (Oct.)

Review

"Women learn best by sharing stories . . . the more honest, the better. That’s why Jacquette Timmons's down-to-earth empathy and advice will demystify finance and make a real difference. This book will help women save relationships as well as money!"  —Mary Lou Quinlan, CEO, Just Ask a Woman, and author, What She's Not Telling You, Why Women Hide the Whole Truth, and What Marketers Can Do About It



"This book is filled with interesting insights and pieces of wisdom and it is well worth the reader's time to better understand the roles that money can play in the financial intimacy of couples."  —Dr. Howard P. Tuckman, dean of the Graduate School of Business, dean of the Business Faculty, and George Jean Chair of Business, Fordham University



"How do couples manage to mix their money with the honey of intimacy?  The divorce rate suggests that many don't. This book goes beyond financial literacy to promote financial intimacy and the possibility of financial synergy in relationships."  —Julianne Malveaux, economist and president, Bennett College for Women



"There are all kinds of books on marriage and relationships, but I've never seen one that so brilliantly deals with creating healthy financial intimacy for couples."  —Barbara Stanny, author, Prince Charming Isn’t Coming


"Financial Intimacy goes beyond telling couples how to manage their debt and invest for the future; it shows couples how to make those conversations routine and painless—as they should be."  —Beverly Goodman, senior editor, Smart Money Magazine

I just completed Financial Intimacy: How to Create a Healthy Relationship with Your Money and Your Mate and must say, I think it's a book that anyone can benefit from, not just the target audience of women in or pursuing relationships. The stories and people in the case studies were so relatable, with elements in each that both me and my mate could identify with. As someone who thought herself already to be fairly intimate with my own relationship to money, reading this book and taking the time to go through the execises showed me how much more I could learn and tools I could use to excel in my relationship with money and my mate. Anyone interested in defining their path with money, can benefit from reading this book.

I found Financial Intimacy: How to Create a Healthy Relationship with Your Money and Your Mate to be engaging and thought provoking. It forces you to re-examine the financial attitudes that you probably take for granted. I easily saw myself (and many of those around me) in the case studies, which made the book difficult to put down. While the book does not solve the issues raised when seeking financial intimacy with a partner (or just a better understanding of your own relationship with money), it does provide a framework and excellent tools for the process. A great read whether you are in a relationship or not.

Why are so many couples divorcing over something that is as simple as money? This book addresses that question and much more in a clear and concise way. If you are single, dating, or married...this book is for you. I love the fun style that she approaches money. I highly recommend this book for ALL! I couldn't put it down!

I started reading this book but stopped after the first few chapters. Don't get me wrong it's a cute book, very informative and good conversation for couples, but my husband and I have a pretty good financial relationship. We enjoyed talking about the first several chapters that I read. I would recommend this book to women and men.
