Review: Get Financially Naked by Manisha Thakor and Sharon Kedar

You may think that marital bliss means money doesn't matter, but in today's troubled economic times, that's simply false hope. And with layoffs galore and debt mounting, financial stress is through the roof. Think keeping afloat and affectionate is impossible? Think again. This inspiring, action-oriented guide helps young women in committed relationships understand and manage their money matters. Complete with charts, graphs, case studies, and tip-based advice, this succinct, straightforward guide speaks to worried women in the same way that made On My Own Two Feet a mega-success. Accessible and easy to follow, the three-part process presented in this book teaches you how to: accurately interpret your current financial condition; become truly involved in the costs of the couple; move forward using the "three powers steps to financial success" This expert author team is here to help once more. Clearing up confusion, stating the truth, developing a plan-and now, helping create a happy home.

Received from the publicist for review.

This one gets three stars. The book purports to be for “everyone”, but by “everyone” they appear to mean anyone who is at least quite comfortably middle class. Those in the book's target audience will find it a comprehensive reference with tons of great questions, quizzes, etc. to help you uncover your financial beliefs and style. The frank personal stories sprinkled throughout are beneficial supplements to the main text. This is not for every woman, but if you are fairly well off then you should find it enlightening and helpful.
