I like this book because it is very straightfoward to read, it considers issues relevant to women without implying we are airheads who just buy clothese and eat chocolate) and it is serious and responsible without being ‘heavy.’ Case stories abound and these always make tips seem doable and situations seem real and this book uses them very well.
I love chapter 9 which follows a day in the life of a top shecononist – it’s brilliant! oPre packed lunch, cost free yoga, opening the bills straightaway, using oranges form the market in the juicer etc. we coould all do with a day like that. An excellent book highly recommended .
