"The Smart Cookies' story will inspire you, and the successful strategies they share will help you improve your finances and your life. There are definitely Smart Women who are Finishing Rich!"
—David Bach, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Smart Women Finish Rich and The Automatic Millionaire
"Anyone who's afraid to take hold of her financial life should grab this inspiring book with both hands. These five women, who started as a 'collective financial mess,' turned their situations around in less than a year."
—Liz Pulliam Weston, MSN Money columnist and author of Deal with Your Debt
"The enterprising authors address the nitty-gritty of goal setting, negotiations for raises, debt management and mortgages, and their plainspoken, encouraging style and helpful breakdown of information make this the perfect gift for recent grads – or anyone who needs convincing that financial health is attainable."
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“The Smart Cookies weave their likeable, identifiable personal narratives through all of their work, making them appear as a five-element every-woman.”
— National Post

It's very focussed on women who have credit card debt after spending too much shopping for themselves which, in itself, is a good enough reason to skip this book. Really? ALL women want to get out of debt and save money for new dresses and shoes???
There are so many other wonderful financial books out there. In my opinion, this one does not contribute sound financial advice in a clear and guided way and doesn't deserve the read.
I was hoping this book would get a little more into investing secrets as opposed to budgeting basics, but it doesn't. I prefer David Bach's Smart Women Finish Rich MUCH better. In fact, I'm reading it for the 3rd time.
I have started a money group with the help and guidelines in this book and look forward to my goals being achieved that much faster!
