Summary, etc.:
Draws on the insights of leading economists, financial planners, and other experts to outline recommendations to help women understand themselves in relation to money, get paid what they deserve, and invest for the future.
"Women have more money--and power--than ever before. So why are we still so conflicted, and unsure, of what or how to deal with it? What do you want from your money? More of it, sure. But even women who are making more than ever are still not comfortable with or confident about their money. So, what do you really want? Independence. Choices. The knowledge that it will last as long--if not longer--than you do. And, oh yes, less stress ... much less stress. In [this book], Jean Chatzky charts a three-part plan to attain this joyful, purpose-filled life with the resources you have right now. Through a series of HerMoney Happy Hour discussions and one-on-one conversations, the always engaging, empathetic (and experienced) money girlfriend dives deep and gets women to get candid about the one subject we still never talk about. Then, with help from the world's top economists, behaviorists, psychologists, financial planners, and attorneys, Jean opens the door to help you achieve your goals. Whether you're looking to: invest with more confidence; get paid what you`re worth; understand why you are the way you are with money; start your own business; buy real estate; raise independent, confident kids (and help them launch); help your aging parents; leave a legacy; or simply take a little more joy in how you use your money, [this book] has the answers. As one Happy Hour participant put it: "This feels revolutionary.""--Dust jacket.

This book begins with an introspective exploration of the factors that shape a woman's relationship to money. The second part dives into managing one's funds through earning and investing. Finally, Chatzky delves into how to spend money for the lives women want, while also caring for children and aging parents. The author further offers insight into entrepreneurship and managing rental properties and includes helpful exercises and steps for consideration. Thoughtfully arranged, this volume is designed to follow women's stories from childhood through retirement. Chatzky's profiles of successful business owners and investors supply solid facts and figures that provide perspective into women's past and future relationships with money. VERDICT Women desiring a book tailored to their unique financial needs will find this work approachable and informative.—Jennifer Clifton, Indiana State Lib., Indianapolis
