This book was written earlier than her famous book, "Emotional Blackmail," and could have used another draft before publishing it. Maybe that is why it is not available on kindle? Still it is very useful.

One message that is very useful is that our money issues are usually not about money at all, but insecurities we bring to the relationship. The issues and insecurities we have, usually we formed in childhood regarding our parents, or from previous marriages, or both. These insecurities show up in the ways we use and think of money, or in the way we view our partner's use and thinking about money. This idea, with numerous examples, makes the book worth a hundred times the price. Buy it!

I believe a number of the examples she gives are biased, perhaps by her own history and issues? All I am saying (and this is true of any book) is that you read it with a mind that thinks, "this author is a human who has her own issues and some of these come out in her writing." While she admits, humbly--thank you Dr. Forward, that she USED to have money demons, she gives the impression she has resolved them all and now is an authority speaking from clarity. I think this book would have worked better as half-memoir where she shares that she's still not quite finished processing a few of her own money demons, but resolved enough that she can help a lot of people with theirs.

Some of her case histories I found to be spot-on, and very useful to myself and to understand my situation.

While the book is written for women and particularly for women who have more money than "financially inadequate" men "who have nothing to offer me," if you can get past this bias the book has plenty that men may also gain.

Well written but not clear how much is based on science.
