If you have never had a conversation with your significant other about finances, then this is a useful book. If you have had such conversations, and you are looking for tangible ways to move forward, such as how to set up joint checking accounts, how to share finances, how to budget and how to think about the complicated issues that arise from combining finances, this book is not particularly helpful.

I saw this book advertised on The Steve Harvey Show so I decided to purchase the hard copy so my fiancé and I could use it as a resource in our relationship. It's a good read and we found a lot of things that we hadn't already thought of. It will definitely help us prepare and communicate our financial future with one another much better then we had already anticipated. It may even help us avoid counseling lol

I was lucky enough to get an early copy of the book. Why is it so hard to talk about money with your significant other? This book guides you through ways to think about it, and talk about it, so you keep yourself out of trouble. Lots of very specific advice and exercises to make it easy to take concrete steps, little by little.

As someone who is looking to create a healthy, loving relationship in 2010, I was so pleased to read Manisha Thakor and Sharon Kedar's latest book. It's chock full of concrete tools for walking into a relationship from a position of financial strength rather than fear. Let's face it - so many of us do NOT know how to have these conversations, myself included. After reading this book, I feel so much more prepared to face head on issues related to money that I would normally run away from. I'm excited about the possibilities this opens up.

One of my favorite aspects of Get Financially Naked is how much Manisha and Sharon share of their personal journeys with money before their relationships (their money stories) as well as during them. They show that it's not about striving for perfectionism but more about open communication with your partner. I felt like if they could do it, I could too! This book is a MUST HAVE for anyone looking to successfully navigate relationships and money.

If you are in high school or in college and have absolutely no clue about finances (or your love life) I do recommend this book as an orientation and helping you start thinking for your future. If you have knowledge and are looking to augment it with good, solid financial advice this book is definitely not for you. I read through it in 3 hours because they use a lot of stories of people's (mostly women) financial struggles/up-comings, which I skipped over. They use a lot of "rules of thumb" that are clearly wrong, because everyone is in different financial situations. It might stir you wrong. The authors claim to be professionals in the financial field but either they chose to be too general or they really didn't put enough real financial substance into their book. I had bought this book for my wife but after reading it I think it might confuse her even more. It also says its not completely directed to women, and that it will also be a good read for men.....but clearly they are wrong! Its clearly tailored solely for women, trust me. Anyways, just trying to avoid anyone buying this book that is looking for something else...like I was.

After reading the first three chapters, I made a special "date night" appointment with my husband to talk over our finances. We usually keep in close touch about the bills, but I used the questions that are laid out in this book to guide our discussion. And it was fun! We really got into some parts of our financial relationship that we had just assumed the other one understood. It made me feel so closer to my husband, bringing a warmth into our connection that night. Thank you, authors! You are brilliant! I fully recommend this book to all women in any stage of your relationship...

I LOVED this book! It is a quick read and is well written. The issues that the authors address are helpful for any couple. It is a little crazy that often times, most of us just avoid talking about financial topics with our partner. I could totally relate to how differences in financial beliefs/goals can affect relationships, and I found the exercises in the book extremely helpful. In fact, my sister and her husband are newlyweds, and I've already ordered them a copy. I think it's a must read for any couple!

I've been a fan of Thakor and Kedar since they wrote and published ON MY OWN TWO FEET, the book I'm sure would have saved me from years of debt and financial cluelessness if it had been around when I was in my 20s. Now that I'm over 35 and have bootstrapped my way into self-employment, home ownership, and a spotless credit record, I face a new financial challenge: How to merge my financial life with that of my (soon to be live-in) significant other. Thankfully GET FINANCIALLY NAKED has walked me through the process.

Before reading this book, I was a deer in the headlights about the financial ramifications of cohabitation. Now I feel like I now know what questions to ask, how to bring them up, and how to deal with any discrepancies in how my partner and I view money. I'm honestly not sure what I love most about the book: The get-real-with-yourself quizzes and charts designed to show how financially literate you and your partner are, the advice on how much home the two of you can *really* afford, the tips on dealing with the financial needs of stepkids and in-laws, the suggestions for how to word those tough-to-bring-up money questions, and the juicy investment guidance made simple all resonated with me in a big way. I want to personally thank Thakor and Kedar in advance for saving me from what I sure would have been a number of uncomfortable, tense conversations about money with my sweetie.

But this book isn't just for those in a romantic relationship. Sadly, I've known far too many young women whose financial plan for the future has been Get Married To A Guy With A Fat Paycheck. (Yes, even in 2009.) If you have yet to get real with yourself about the fact that a man (or a woman, or a parent) is not a financial plan, time to get there.
