This irreverent manifesto sparked both conversation and controversy when it made its debut as a hardcover in 2009. From essays in The Wall Street Journal to debates in the blogosphere, women weighed in on the book’s provocative message, which ultimately challenges the ideals and assumptions we’ve blindly accepted about love and marriage.

Smart Girls Marry Money is a hard-hitting indictment on society (peppered with plenty of wry observations) that empowers women with a new way to take control of their economic and romantic lives. Now in a paperback edition, there will be more “Smart Girls” who will join in on the heated debate on how we can make healthier (and wealthier!) marriages.
