Janet Wallach did a beautiful job of taking the reader through time and getting to know Hetty. I finished the book last night and am so impressed with Hetty's money savvy and her dertemination to be her own kind of person and not what everyone expected her to be. The parallels between the economic crisis of the past and now are uncanny. What an incredible lady Hetty was. I had seen Janet Wallach on TV reading an excerp and just had to get this book. This is an incredible story of a woman who lived life the way she wanted and amassed a fortune the old fashioned way. She saved and invested conservatively. She felt strongly that women should understand finances and compound interest. That's good advice for anyone. THANK YOU JANET WALLACH FOR SUCH A WONDERFUL BOOK. IT WAS A PLEASURE TO READ.

I found this book to be inspirational, educational, and interesting. There is a lot of great history in this book as well as simple financial advice that is sound & effective. History certainly repeats itself, it's funny we do not learn form the past.
