Ms. Burdick's primer on women and finances offers the reader both an overview of her subject and gems of wisdom that leap off the page. There is no pretense of analytical or theoretical thought. Instead, she presents the experience she's culled from years of talking to women who've been victimized by problems in their past that affect judgment on the all-important matter of financial well-being. She is to be lauded for compressing such valuable expertise into 140 pages.
As a woman, I relate heavily to the topics discussed in this book. It opens your eyes to the direct relationship between finances and emotions; a connection that usually would be overlooked. The examples provided make the book relatable to everyone. This book has given me the courage to find my true self and has caused me to THINK. I highly recommend!

I was fortunate to receive a copy of this book from a caring friend. The timing was perfect as I was in the middle of a stressful period so much so that my perceptions were distorted and the possibility of relief was inconceivable. I read "It's Never About the Money ..." and felt that the author was speaking to me from her own honest painful experiences and the obviously painful experiences of others. I wish I had read this book before I went down into the abyss but, however, her book has given me hope knowing that there are others in my situation who have bubbled up to the surface and have more than survived. I ordered 5 copies from Amazon and have given them to friends. My caring friend said when she gave me the book, "Life is a slippery slope - here take my hand and read the book."
