The Virtual Bookcase Reviews of 'It's Only Money: A Primer for Women':

Unknown reviewer wrote:
Advance Praise for IT?S ONLY MONEY: ?Read this book before you read Suze Orman.? Maureen Murdock, author of THE HEROINE?S JOURNEY ?Women control more money today than ever before. This book reinforces just how important it is for women to take charge of their money and make smart financial decisions.? Tamara King, Vice Chairman Women?s Financial Network at Siebert ?Practical, entertaining, painless.? Marylin Hudson, Round Table West Newsletter It's Only Money: A Primer for Women by Allison Acken, described by Making Bread magazine as a ?savvy, new money management book,? is an introductory book for women who want to know more about money, but are not sure where to start. Breaking the taboo against talking about money, It?s Only Money persuades women not only that talking about money is essential to having enough money, but also that talking about money can be fun. It?s Only Money highlights startling facts: women still earn only 72 cents on the dollar compared to men; married women can expect to outlive their husbands by 15 years; and women represent three-quarters of the elderly poor. The book is enhanced by stories from the lives of real women and by original words of advice from Nora Ephron, Julia Child, Ruby Dee, Christine Baranski, Nell Carter, Trisha Yearwood, and many others. This primer is of value for any woman who wants to begin the first day of the rest of her financial life. Author, Allison Acken, understands money issues from the inside out. Raised in a record store in Baltimore, today she is a psychologist and speaker, based in Los Angeles, and an expert in helping women build their money-readiness skills.
