By S. Vermilyea on January 9, 2009
Format: Paperback
I am not a math person and this starts off written for me. Then it gets so overwhelming that I can't finish it. I have put it back on the shelf to review later.

I've decided to let Quicken help me rather than create spreadsheets - that way all of my accounts are in one place, including my partners.

The hard stuff for me in the book is really the financial planning sections rather than the checking and savings. And of course, that's what I was hoping this would help identify for me.

There were some (very few) tips on why some accounts should be set up a certain way as a gay couple.

Basically finances seem to be finances and this doesn't exactly cater to gays except in the title...maybe later in the book, the part that doesn't make sense to me there will be more.

As an openly gay investment banker, I feel that I have expertise on both topics addressed in this book--namely finance and homosexuality. Few have considered how these two topics interact. I have often felt that the personal finance decisons of gay men like me (and women of course) are not the same as for those that are not gay. Bravo!!
