Actually for me there was nothing to dislike! Amazon again is on the cutting edge of supplying information through various media means that goes a long way toward leveling the playing field across the board in virtually every subject matter! I especially like the fact something like this was addressed specifically to and for women! However; it truly is not gender specific as far as I am concerned! Of all similar information I have attempted to read over the past few years it was very direct, to-the-point and reader friendly! It being immediately available for Kindle download was invaluable; giving us the best of both worlds and making it practically
For years I have been trying to get Black Women in finance without very much success until David Bach wrote this book! They are available from amazon.com at a very reasonable price for paperback books which I am able to purchase in volume for gifts for my twelve(12) sisters, my two daughters and a host of other family members including males!
The concepts that David describes are realistic, not "one size fits all." He readily admits that each family and each individual has different financial needs, and these ideas are also addressed in his books. He gives different approaches that will fit different sets of needs, and describes investments that fit different lifestyles.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Financial issues are the #1 reason couples struggle, and certainly individuals struggle too. GREAT BOOK!
i would still recemmend highly though. this book has changed how i look at financial planning. i was always intimidated by it and thought that kind of thing was for people who got degrees in accounting or business. i actually learned i was looking at it the wrong way. it's more about organizing information and knowing what you're making and what you're spending and knowing your goals (or creating them if you've never looked at your life that deeply) and keeping your goals in view and making sure that you're actually spending your money in a way that consistant with what's important to you and how to find help for investing and stuff like that.
when you start reading you get the feeling that all these steps should have been done years ago but also that they are completely doable. important for people who are sleepwalking through their adult life and not aware of their financial situation, present or future.
"Smart Women Finish Rich" has motivated me like nothing else has. I don't know if it's because it's easier to understand and doesn't through a lot of jargon around, or if it's because Bach is so personable and seems genuinely interested in his readers.
What really lit the fire underneath me though were the various charts he had illuminating the value of compounded interest, using time to your advantage, etc. Now, this is something we all "know" at the intellectual level, but the way he presented it was enough to get me off my rear and working on putting my financial house in order.
In the past several days, I have set up my filing system, reviewed my IRA account, requested and reviewed my credit report, opened an account for my "emergency fund" and scheduled automatic deposits, and made a plan for paying down credit card debt. In the next week I'll get the ball rolling to contribute to my employer's 401(k) and get estate planning done for myself and my husband.
I can't say enough good things about how this book has helped me put my financial priorities in order. The reduction in my anxiety level over money is amazing. Well worth it!
