Too often, women trust their spouses, other family members and business partners to treat them fairly, only to find out too late that their trust was misplaced. In other cases, women may not take the time to protect themselves legally because they are too busy with other things, they are intimidated by legal matters, or they don't think it is particularly important to them. In my book, I use a number of stories about women who did not protect themselves legally and women who did to illustrate the type of problems that can be encountered and to encourage women to take care of themselves and to take steps to minimize their legal risk. By protecting themselves legally, not only will women reduce the risk of financial disaster, but they will empower themselves as well

This is a great book -- valuable for both men and women. This anecdotal book is lively and upbeat, while full of useful information from which we can all learn. As illustrated with real-life examples, a small investment now can save you both heartache and money down the road.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I'm a guy who loved this book! It's very helpful to anyone who is involved with marital, parental, and business questions which, if neglected, could prove to get you into all kinds of trouble. The author writes in an easy to read style, good for those of us who don't know many legal phrases, and mistrust those who practice law. I'm recommending it to friends of both sexes.

I gave this book to several women friends for Christmas and each of them has come to me with a different story about how it has been specifically relevant and helpful to them. This book is laid out so that you can easily find what is most pertainent to you. While it is interesting and entertaining, it is also clear to the non-accounting, non-legal reader. Good answer for life's challenges that we all share. What a find!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Marilyn Barrett has written a book that covers all the major legal areas for today's women. To function in today's world we must educate ourselves and we must know how to get the appropriate help. In a well written, easy to understand book, Ms. Barrett covers areas of interest for women from all walks of life: setting up your own business, choosing appropriate lawyers, understanding legal document, prenuptial agreements, protecting your children, and divorce. I was delighted by the precision and focus of this book and would highly recommend it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I found this book to be easy to read and very interesting in addition to being very informative. It reads more like a novel in many ways as the author incorporates stories from the media and her own experiences into each of the chapters to emphasize her points. Although most of us would prefer to live in denial, I think her book demonstates the value of becoming aware of potential problems that can occur in your life and how best to protect yourself and take responsibility, especially if you have children. I recommend the book highly to all women regardless of their marital status.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
