Although this book is clearly geared toward women going through divorce, it is an excellent tool to teach anyone how to become financially wise. There is nothing superfluous in this volume, including the money smart food recipes in the appendix. All the information is clear, concise and instantly usable. I know a few people that could really benefit from this work, including myself.
