This is by far the best personal finance book I have ever read. I love Glinda's books and I recommend them to all women who need advice and help with their finances.

This book was better than that Financial Savvy book, but it still did not float my boat. The book did make me more conscious of simple thing that I have been slipping on. The book didn't give any concrete steps to get your finances on track.

Hippie dippie book about being right with god and the world so that wealth will come to you. Practical advice includes repeating affirmations of being a money-magnet and taping a fake cheque made out to you, with a sum of thousands of dollars, to your bathroom mirror. The author also spends a great deal of time applauding herself for changing peoples' lives.

Recommends it for: Every single Black Female addicted to retail!
Shelves: self-help
This book isn't what I thought it would be. I thought it would be like a lot of money books that tell you stuff you already know about checking credit scores and interest rates, ect. This book read more like a novel to me. It went into detail about why a lot of us that have money issues in the first place. I really liked this one!

Not what I was expecting after reading another money book! I loved her stories, strategies, and holistic approach for AA sistahs! I passed the one test with flying colors, another one, I wanted to copy and print out but took it back to the library. May get this on my shelf in future. 3.5/5 stars.

I didn't read this word for word, but read through it at the library, picking out charts and chapters that piqued my interest. It was informative and written with humor.
