So I liked this? I don't know if the reasoning is because a) it's actually good finance book or b) that I've read enough finance books/blogs/financial websites over the past year that some of lingo and rules are starting to make sense in my head? Either way, I found myself nodding along with (most) of this book. I appreciate this book mostly for two reasons. A) It was written last year in 2013 and so it takes place AFTER THE RECESSION so her reasoning and information are current and up to date w ...more

There were a few little helpful gems in here, but overall fairly basic. It is very readable/approachable, so it might be useful for someone who really struggles with their finances or who just doesn't quite know where to begin.

I enjoyed Mary Hunt's book Raising Financially Confident Kids, and I expected to get a lot of information from this book as well. While much of it was a repeat of what I've gleaned from other books and websites about money (the envelope system, build up an emergency fund, stick to a budget, cut unnecessary costs), there was enough different information for me to still learn something (and to reinforce those previous ideas and remind me to keep up with them).

As the title says, this book focuses

Financial expert and author Mary Hunt has a unique gift for taking difficult subjects, such as debt, financial matters, and retirement planning, and making the various aspects of every step clear and easy to understand. In her latest book, "The Smart Woman's Guide to Planning for Retirement," Hunt tackles the very daunting fact that most women are not prepared for their future retirements, and she sets out concise reasons and solutions to correct this problem.

This is a book that should be issue

I appreciated the conversational tone to retirement planning and saving that this book took. I believe that it is a much easier way to understand the steps needing to be taken, and just how important those steps are when they are presented in a narrative rather than graphs and charts. While I was already implementing the majority of the tips found in this book and it seemed geared towards those perhaps later on in their life than I; I did find it a helpful resource in general and would recommend ...more

The author provides the readers with excellent advice. Timely questions are raised and answered.
Easy to understand, conversational tone, entertaining at times, empowering. The author does a good job encouraging women to get to work, learn whatever is necessary about finances and manage their money and wealth and plan for retirement based on the current state of the economy. ...
