Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

A California real estate attorney who gives seminars and counseling to major corporations, couples, and individuals on how to view and handle money, Devine recommends a methodology emphasizing dreams and vision while cultivating talent and time so that life can be lived to the fullest. The four keys Devine stresses are being articulate about money, being aware of how it affects your lifestyle, being deliberate about all financial transactions, and having a feeling of accomplishment as a result of your efforts. His methods, when compared with those employed by other financial advisers, are thought-provoking and well supported by examples and anecdotes. Recommended for all public libraries.?Steven J.

From the Inside Flap

Do you want to know how you and your partner can keep money from sabotaging your standard of living? How you can use money, day in and day out, to expand your capacity for intimacy and forge meaningful connections with others? In Women, Men and Money, attorney William Devine shows you how to stop listening to conventional wisdom about financial security and start using money to convert the talents and spirit within you into the rich life you are capable of having.

Money is a tough issue to talk about, no matter how much you have. The customs and myths attached to getting a job, buying a house, and saving for retirement cause many couples great anxiety, frequently ruining their bankbooks, love, and self-esteem. Using case studies from his practice, Devine presents fresh communication techniques for avoiding and resolving painful misunderstandings about money. He also provides guidelines for discussing money in a way that can help you and your partner build a healthy relationship as well as a life together that reflects your values.

With advice that is fiscally sound and spiritually aware, Women, Men and Money will teach you how to earn, spend, invest, negotiate, and communicate about money in ways that will move you toward the relationship, bank balance, and life you desire.

This book provides a different approach to thinking about money. The author suggests that you can take control of your life's goals and then the money will follow. I found this book to be more about getting true to oneself and your spouse than a "get rich" plan. I agree with the author's theory that links happiness and pursuit of one's goals with financial rewards.
I appreciated the "getting started exercises" at the end of each chapter. They have encouraged some incredible discussion in our family as we face choices regarding relocation, and home purchases. I also do seem to have more money around and have found myself re-thinking purchases and my buying "process." Having fresh flowers in my kitchen has been very uplifting in February and is noticed by everyone who comes to visit.
I strongly recommend this book for anyone looking to improve on the quality of their life and leave behind "worrying big about the little."

This book, though written in 1998, should not be cast off in the finance community as "outdated." The concepts Devine wrote about then are still true today and are utterly timeless.

After fifteen years of helping people handle their money, from Forbes listers to the impoverished, Devine decided to write a book so that his expertise could reach even further. From $100 million real estate deals and Fortune 500 companies to $20 parking tickets, he says he has “examined all these experiences closely,” and now wants to share the principles that he learned from them.

He has boiled it all down to Four Principles that allow you to use money to nourish your relationships, your bankbooks, and ultimately your soul.

His goal, it seems, is to encourage people out of the mindset that their only hope is to merely pay their bills consistently until they die. Nor does he want them sitting around praying for a windfall they might think will solve all their problems. He claims that everyone has the inner talent to do more than that financially and live in a way that money will work for you rather than drain you...

I have been very interested lately in exploring relationship between women, men and money in terms of both personal and professional relationship. While this book did not have answers to the question of why men make more money in the workplace, it did have some very interesting points on how to build relationship and have money (issues) complement those in a positive way. If anything, book should deter any couple from living together without thinking how money and finance can affect their relationship. But what was also interesting was to be able to identify traits of people worth having business relationship with. If anything, I would recommned this book for page 105 and chapter on "Master of Disaster" examples from both business relationship and work perspective. One does not have to live, work or interact with the master of disaster personality under any circumstances! Easy read, valuable common sense advice.

After feeling bogged down with the minutia of finances (managing budgets to the penny, searching for countless tax deductions, considering buying a house solely for financial reasons, and obsessing over my 401k), Women, Men, & Money provided me with an integrated approach to a relationship with money that supports manifestation of my and my spouse's full, unique promise as human beings. It helps me keep money decisions in perspective by staying connected to money's true value and purpose -- to help me and my spouse bring our authentic selves fully into the world. Part of that self actualization is our service, our unique potential for contributing to others, and that's the crux of satisfying and rewarding work (psychologically/spiritually *and* financially). Women, Men, & Money also has lots of great information about how to interact with your spouse about money in a way that affirms and grows your relationship. As a twenty-something married just one year, I found this book extremely helpful in creating a healthy relationship with money in my marriage. Highly recommended.
