    This was a quick read, she wrote it as if she was talking to and teaching a group of friends about how they can take control of their financial life. She doesn't like that there are woman out there that don't know how to do anything with money other than balance a checkbook! She wants woman to be more aware of the world and how they take care of themselves and their families through learning about investing. It isn't a "how to" book, more of a book to increase awareness.

    Don't make fun of me! I have decided to learn about the world of investing. Kind of a cheesy read, but a good one to start on. This book was VERY cheesy... VERY. But, I had to start somewhere and get a little terminology going I guess. On to a better on. Don't make fun of me! I have decided to learn about the world of investing.

    A review for the men: If your wife/girlfriend is reading this, you'd do well to read it too. Money is a team sport, and it's important to know where your partner's going with it. Of course, if you're more inclined to see love as a battlefield, well then, forewarned is forearmed. ;) A review for the men: If your wife/girlfriend is reading this, you'd do well to read it too.

    Even though I'm not a woman yet, I really like this book and the idea of being financially independent.. And I think women have been underestimated for hundreds of years.. Society thinks that women cannot understand finance and money.. But the truth is women can do anything they want..

    Kim makes an excellent case for the dire need for women to be financially independent and the (U.S) statistics (and sympathetic worldwide trends) to back up her case are startling: -50% of marriages end in divorce. (The #1 thing couples fight about is money.) -In the first year after divorce a woman's standard of living drops an average of 73%. -Of the elderly living in poverty, 3 out of 4 are women, yet 80% of these women were not poor when their husbands were alive. -90% OF ALL WOMEN WILL BE SOLEL Kim makes an excellent case for the dire need for women to be financially independent and the (U.S) statistics (and sympathetic worldwide trends) to back up her case are startling: -50% of marriages end in divorce.

We live in a totally different society to the one my mother grew up in and an entirely foreign world to the one my grandmother grew up in, and as such I personally feel the need to actively pursue my own financial education. Some quotes and inspiration which stuck out from the book include: "I do not wish (women) to have power over men; but over themselves." - Mary Wollstonecraft "A good goal is like a strenuous exercise - it makes you stretch" - Mary Kay Ash "Power is the ability not to have to please." - Elizabeth Janeway "You can learn new things at any time in your life if you're willing to be a beginner. If you actually learn to like being a beginner, the whole world opens up to you." - Barbara Sher Overall it is my opinion that this is an excellent book that all women should read but sadly, I suspect that only a dismal few will even be interested in.

    If you want to be an independent woman who can take care of her own finances with or without a man, read this book. I didn't know the first thing about investment options or jargon before I picked this up. I still can't say I know much jargon, but I do know that there are smart ways for me to handle my money and investments that even I could handle. The only negative thing I have to say about this book is the format was a little too "women getting together to have coffee and chit chat."

    I enjoyed and loved this book. Purchased at a thrift storen and worth more than I paid for. I love how she motivates women to not follow the usual people were taught about money. She gave so many insights and push to do better. every page makes me excited to pursue financial freedom! I should have it read long time ago!

Though I love the book and as much I get excited for all the things she taught and the story of her life and her friends, it would be nicer to cite companies base from her experience, to give idea for women and to know where to start. Well, everything has to start somewhere we need to do our homeworks and research I suppose, and that's I think the first thing Kim wants women who are serious about getting out of financial debt. This book got me so motivated that I am so eager to be financially free.

    I liked Rich Dad Poor Dad, by Robert Kiyosaki more. She references his book a lot and should be read in conjunction. The book reads more like a story than a how-to where she is meeting up with her girlfriends over multiple lunch dates to talk about building your own wealth indepedent of your spouse/significant other. Most of her advice revolves around buying real estate and making your money that way. I don't know anything about owning rental properties or businesses, so I didn't find it very he I liked Rich Dad Poor Dad, by Robert Kiyosaki more.

    Audio version. Listening on long commutes is helping me learn more about finance. This was very story driven. Very heavy on real estate investing, but lots of good tips throughout.

    I took a course in Singapore about finance and I’d say every tiny detail Kim has stated in this book is definitely worth taking notes on. Read this a couple of years back but it was only now that somehow the message sank in deeper. She’s right when she said - the time is now! Be financially literate. I’m still in the process and I’m still learning, having fun learning. A must read dear ladies. Be smarter.

    A strong 3.5. A quick, easy read. It's not a how to book, it's more about inspiring you to start investing and taking control of your life. You would then have to explore other resources to work out how. Some parts did make me a little uncomfortable I felt like she was running men down in order to build women up. A strong 3.5.

    There were a few times it physically hurt to read certain passages because of the poor grammar and lack of punctuation (quite common for their line of books), but it was an easy read and I took away a few good notes from it. There was a lot of material from the Rich Dad Poor Dad book, but it was a good refresher. Rounding my 3.5 stars to 4.

    I only read this because my brother was on a Kiyosaki kick and bought me this book on money management for women. It didn't tell me much I didn't already know, and the Kiyosakis seem overly-focused on real estate as an investment. It would be a decent primer for someone looking for an entry-level book on the topic, though.

    Bookclub book. Never would have picked it up otherwise. The writing here is super forced and cheesy and am a little skeptical as to whether I should trust the author and her husband — whose companies have since gone bankrupt according to Wikipedia — but it was for sure an inspiring read! Not much in terms of actual concrete, practical advice though. Would call it mostly motivational stuff

    A book with too detailed unnecessary conversation between the friends stressing on the emotional and mood. This book provides a fundamental of investing and types of investments available however I find still lack of detailed explanation. Unlike rich dad poor dad, it manages to attract people to know more about investment and go to the next book.

    I listened the audio version of this book. I consider it a very inspirational and motivational book for women to do more than just handling money for households purposes and ect. I believe women do need to be financially independent. This is a book shows you that you should want more, desire more than the complacency.

    I appreciate the content of this book and the way she lead me through the process. I had already read Rich dad, poor dad, so I definitely recommend reading that first for more context. Overall, a great book, a great way to take a first step towards financial freedom.

    It's obvious the book is old but I like the premise. A bit cheesy. I wish there was a little more info on methodology of how she managed/repaired/maintained or if she uses management companies and how she set up her legal entity structure because I'm sure it wasn't kept under her personal.

    Not worth the read, basically the entire book is backstory and conversation. Which would be fine for the first chapter not 18. Two pages of this book are valuable for investing and making money. Pg. 38 & 196.

    I was excited to read an investing book by a woman, but this was terrible. It's pretty obvious this book exists as a hastily put together marketing tool trying to get you to buy their other books. It's full of typos and has no actual information on investing. Definitely do not recommend. I was excited to read an investing book by a woman, but this was terrible.
