Farnoosh Torabi, host of the So Money podcast and author of When She Makes More

Elyse Steinhaus, head of financial content at theSkimm

"Financial Adulting is the most comprehensive, real-world guide out there to master your financial life. No more pretending everyone starts from the same place or has equal opportunity—Ashley breaks down all the ways our financial system advantages some and disadvantages others, and she does it with empathy and humor. This book will make you angry about how unfair our system is, but also give you the confidence to navigate that system like a pro, no matter your starting point."
