Women have disadvantages when it comes to handling money, says author David Bach. Having been brought up to believe that finances are a man's responsibility, some women don't even know their family's income. Although his book is addressed to "smart women," Bach's goalsetting and investing guide is helpful to men, also. He does love his bullet points and numbered lists: in addition to the "nine steps" of the subtitle, there are "three myths," "ten biggest mistakes" and more. But, the lists help make his recommendations memorable and easy to use. Bach implies that he is revealing revolutionary techniques, but actually his advice is basic wisdom that emphasizes values and adopting sensible practices. getAbstract recommends this book to you if you find it easier to talk about sex, religion and politics than about money or if you're only making minimum monthly payments on your credit card - so try not to get turned off by Bach's ever-wise grandmother (is she for real?) or his constant promotion of his books, trademarked seminars and other services.
In this summary, you will learn
- How to determine your financial aspirations; and
- How to start investing for current and future necessities - even if you think you can't afford it.
