5.0 out of 5 stars Recommend this one!
This book was fun to read and inspiring. I'd recommend it for any woman, (and a few men I know) who need to get their arms around the whole money issue. I'm about to buy her newest book. Hope it's just as good!

1.0 out of 5 stars A Motivational Speech Minus the Motivation
I bought this book thinking that it would offer tips and strategies pertaining to how to begin investing, planning for future and retirement, or even just how to better understand financial jargon. It offered none of the above.
The book details (repeatedly) how women grow up thinking some man is going to come along and take care of them. Sure, I get that. The book...

5.0 out of 5 stars A Real Eye-Opener, July 16 1999
By A Customer
Reading "Prince Charming Isn't Coming.." encouraged me to look beyond the veil of the myth that someone else would take care of financial matters for me and discover that saving and investing for the future can be a rewarding and empowering experience. Stanny's honesty and personal story gave me the courage to take positive action...step by step.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the most important book I ever read., March 11 1999
By A Customer
This book should be made required reading for high school. I wish I had known all this information years ago.
Although the book is written for women, don't assume men can't benefit from it.
Thank you Barbara Stanny.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's great., Dec 12 1997
By A Customer
"Prince Charming Isn't Coming", is captivating. Stanny's personal experiences are engaging, and her "Seven Realizations of Financial Enlightenment" is a process that all women should go through and learn from. What I really liked about this book is that it gives the reader a resource guide at the end. A list of sources that one could use to continue the journey of taking control of one's finances.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wealth of financial advice for women., Dec 12 1997
By A Customer
Balancing my checkbook makes me crabby. The
word "investment" gives me cramps. Fortunately,
*Prince Charming Isn't Coming* is the perfect
panacea for women who suffer from financial
phobia and monetary pain.
Barbara Stanny's book is worth reading! Her
advice is grounded in experience, which makes
it valuable. She shares how her own fiscal
disaster led to her financial self-education.
Now she is educating others.

Financial wisdom is an essential goal for all
women, insists Stanny. She identifies "The
Seven Realizations of Financial Enlightenment,"
priceless insights that serve as the basis for
her motivational money guide. The book
includes sound investment advice, great
resources and fundamental reasons for why
we should take charge of our financial situation.

Before reading *Prince Charming Isn't Coming,*
the only stock market I shopped was a local
grocery store. Halfway through the book, I
was perusing Wall Street Journals, browsing
the web for investment sites, and correctly
distinguishing between Peter and David Lynch.

"When a woman...makes financial decisions
based on who she is, not on what she should
do, and when she acts firmly and confidently
on those decisions, then she becomes a very
powerful woman," Stanny writes.

Power,eh? I like that.

*Prince Charming Isn't Coming* is more than a
financial fairytale, but it has a happy ending.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Useful and Engaging Guide, Dec 3 1997
By 
The key strength of Stanny's book is that
it empowers women of all means to take control
of their financial destinies and does so in an
engaging and personal style. It offers the
right skills and attitudes for women to adopt
in a way that is a pleasure to read.

The heart of the book is her Seven
Realizations of Financial Enlightenment, which
provide a path to financial empowerment, but
you'll enjoy reading about her personal
journey from financial ignorance to financial
strength.
There is a quiz in the book that is very
useful in determining your personal financial
situation. This is a well
written book and you'll come away liking the
author - her compassion shines through her
clear prose.
