    So much more than a message about money

    Although I didn't expect the whole book to be about investing rather than other financial issues, I completely enjoyed reading this book. But you don't have to understand Wall Street to understand her message. The book is about gaining back your power. She uses money as the medium but I have definitely felt more in control of other parts of my life from reading this book. You don't have to wait for "Prince Charming" to help you, whoever or whatever that may be. She goes through 7 "realizations" that she saw in successful women and gives simple steps on how to take action on them (in a fiscal manner). I highly recommend Prince Charming Isn't Coming, whether you think you have money problems or not!

    A Tiny, Small Step in the Right Direction

    When social independence relies upon economic independence, the need for such a book is clear. Unfortunately, in a real world of gender and age discrimination where the double standard has all but been made the ideal, economic independence for women is still an illusion. In an equitable world where the work of both men and women are valued equally, women would not be reduced to poverty unless they were an adjunct to a man. To achieve that world, however, much work needs to be done to alter attitudes which continue to create an unfair preference for female submission in relationships. This book offers a 'beginning' to deal with the inequities by making awareness an important feature in practical management of individual lives that may offer some measure of both economic and social independence for both. Now, if corporate America could get the message, successful human resource management might be the outcome which offers hope to escape poverty.
