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.
Those who criticize the book for not having enough practical advice might have been expecting practical tips for improving your cash flow and finances. This book goes much deeper, looking at the emotional reasons why we struggle with money. And once we work on the deep stuff, the practical things all fall into place. But again, that requires the courage to look deep into ourselves.
This is a fantastic book that chronicles the author's own journey of financial healing and how she got out of debt herself. It's inspiring, and has a deep spiritual focus...this is a Hay House book, so I wouldn't expect anything less.
I recommend this book to anyone who's struggling with money issues and who is willing to do the hard work of digging deep into their own beliefs and attitudes about money. If you're not willing to do the homework exercises, this might not be the book for you.
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.
British readers will find the tone very, very American. "Brilliant! You're such a champ. I hope you are as proud of yourself as I am of you." Some readers may find this encouraging, though I suspect many will find it utterly patronising.
I am baffled by the two very positive reviews for the kindle edition, which also appear under the paperback edition. As another reviewer of the paperback edition has pointed out, the claim that the reviewer increased her income by 60% after reading the book was posted on 28 August 2013, a good 13 days before the publication date of the book. It's a little odd, is it suspicious? Who knows, but having read the book, I now rather regret taking those reviews at face value.
Looking more closely now at where the official praise for the book originates (mainly the self-help community) I should have perhaps been more cautious. If chakras, free-writing exercises and tales of miraculous cures are not your thing, avoid this book.
