Format: Paperback
If you are in financial trouble or just beginning your acquaintance with financial responsibility, this book is a great place to start. This book is part workbook, real-world application, and guide to wrestle your finances into proper shape.

Get ready to be educated and quick. The tables and graphs make it easy to break down where your money goes and easily points out where you as a stay-at-home mom have income value. It's vital to know where your money is coming from and where it's going. It's best summed up by what my grandfather used to say, "Them that understands interest collects it them that don't pays it."

Although this book is clearly geared toward women going through divorce, it is an excellent tool to teach anyone how to become financially wise. There is nothing superfluous in this volume, including the money smart food recipes in the appendix. All the information is clear, concise and instantly usable. I know a few people that could really benefit from this work, including myself.

What a terrific resource for all women! Well written, informative with personalized stories that readers can relate to, this book is so much more than a "how-to" guide. As an investment professional specializing in the female market, I recommend this book for all my clients, no matter what their marital status. As a mother of two daughters, I think Ms. Babek's and Ms. Colquhoun's book should be a must read for all young women embarking on careers and relationships.

Babek and Colquhoun provide essential advice to any woman who desires to ensure her financial security."

This was a easy to read and follow book, great for any women. The information is priceless. If followed the results are empowering. Throughout the book there are coloms and suggestions for helping women to take control of their money. It seems that naturally women tend to put there own needs last. This book helps women to understand and put their finacial help high on the priority list.
