Book Description

Having a good relationship is just like any other relationship: it has its ups and downs, its breakups and makeups. And just like other relationships, living happily with money really comes down to love.

Using client stories and her own saga of moving from heavy debt to complete financial freedom by the age of 28, Kate Northrup acts as a guide in your quest for personal financial freedom through love. You'll learn how to chart your current financial life and create a plan to get you to where you want to be - whether that's a penthouse apartment or a cabin in the woods.

Step-by-step exercises that address both the emotional and practical aspects of your financial life help you figure out your personal perceptions of money and wealth and how to change them for the better. You'll learn about thought patterns that may be holding you back from earning what you're worth or saving what you can. She'll teach you how to shift your beliefs about money, create a budget, spend in line with your values, get out of debt and so much more. In short, she'll teach you to love your money, so you can love your life.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too long, not very practical. 20 Nov 2013
I've been following her mum (Dr. Christian Northrup, Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom) for many years, so I started following and reading blogs and articles by her daughter Kate Northrup. Then I read this book. I am not going to repeat everything other reviewers of UK between 1 and 3 stars said, because I fully agree with them. Go read the low star reviews and see what I mean.

What I do have to add is how, after at least 10 years buying from amazon, it's SO EASY to spot fake reviews... like those with 5 stars! written by friends probably, offering support to the author, which is ok, but I prefer the opinions of general readers. Maybe the book can honestly help some women, but only if you don't have REAL money problems. If you are interested in more serious advice go read Barbara Stanny and/or what other reviewers suggested.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK book 26 Nov 2013

I expected a new twist on tips in this book. Instead, I got someone else's success story, which I found rather boring.

1.0 out of 5 stars Gave up after first couple of chapter 18 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
The author goes on for ions about her own 'money story'. She has no idea about financial hardship. Luckily she's from a privileged home, her mother paid for her apartment and her only woe was that she did not have savings while in college and had some credit cards that she wasn't paying off.

I am interested in how our perception of the subject of money effects who we deal, or don't deal, with our money.
I found this book highly disappointing and although I applaud all writers for making an effort I feel this is one area this author should not be writing about.

I am lucky to be in a better place then some years ago but I know wats it's like to suffer mentally and physically from the stress of money worries. In fact if you are in financial difficulties this us the last book you should read. It will make you feel even more isolated. She would have been better off writing about how Network Marketing using her generous family and friends made her wealthy.

The book was a real disappointment. I was intrigued by what I understood to be the topic - the idea that our relationship with money can have emotional and psychological aspects, and that therefore overcoming unhelpful thought patterns around money is part of getting on top of our personal finances. Unfortunately the book is short on practical advice and long on new-age psycho-babble to the point of being almost unreadable.

Trying to be fair here, there are a few good ideas, such as how to not feel deprived while cutting back on spending. The author also makes some interesting points about how your emotional relationship with money almost certainly stems from your upbringing, and how these early experiences can manifest themselves in surprising ways. But where was the practical advice? I am not sure which planet the author is living on when she suggests that the person you turn to for financial advice must have "unconditional love" for you.

The "meat" of the practical and financial advice comes from other writers (as the author clearly acknowledges) chiefly "Rich Dad Poor Dad" by RT Kiyosaki, and also "Getting things Done" by David Allen. Much is made of the author's own journey to financial freedom but to me her experience didn't seem particularly inspiring. So she got herself in and out of $20,000 of credit card debt - snap! Me too! (How many readers must have been thinking the same?!). The author has a privileged background, an expensive education, and what seems to be a fairly uncomplicated life. For a book aimed mostly at women, what was missing was advice on how to disentangle yourself from a shared-finances relationship, how to avoid losing your financial freedom if you give up work to care for the kids, pre-nups, divorce....etc, all absent.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as expected! 11 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book, having read an article whereby a British female journalist met with and tried to implement the advice given by the author, Kate Northrup. I should have really just stuck to the tips provided in the article, rather than buy the book, which has turned out to be a waste of my money!
First of all, the author is an American so her advice is very 'lovey-dovey' and saddled with spirituality. This is all very well for a US audience who responds to encouragement from someone who considers herself to have been 'through financial hardship' but further reading of this book proves otherwise.
Which leads me onto my second point. The author cannot claim to have gone through financial hardship, when all she has done has spent $20k of her money on luxurious living, when she is able to live with her parents who both work and own their own home, which she is then able to live in rent free for a time while she sorts herself out.
My third point demonstrates how unrealistic this woman's financial advice is. At one point during the book, she tell us to invest in a beautiful, luxurious looking handbag in order to focus our minds on financial freedom. ?!? is all I can say to that.

This may not be the author's fault, however. Her book is clearly aimed at the US audience, not the British who are having to pull their purse strings every day in order to survive our current government's ridiculously unfair policies, aimed at disabling the working classes even further. But I digress. My review is not meant to be political. I do think it is pointless advertising this book in the UK as a guide to financial freedom.

Buy Merryn Somerset Webb's 'Love is not enough' instead and refer to the 'Money Saving Expert' website whenever you like for more realistic financial advice.
