I had high expectations for this book and although the first few chapters were insightful and interesting, I feel that the majority of the book was geared towards debt management. As someone who is young, likes to shop, and is debt-free, this book wasn't all that useful to me. I was expecting lots of tips on money management and making the most of what I have. For any serious shopaholics or spendaholics, I highly recommend this. But if you're in control of your finances and just want an extra push in the right direction, this probably isn't for you.

I read 'Sheconomics' when both my business and personal finances couldn't get worse! I knew I had to change something but just couldn't figure out how! I didn't have very high expectations - however when the book arrived, I read it within 48 hours and immediately starting making plans to change my financial life. Easy to read, it resonated with me on a personal and financial level and made me realise that I wasn't the only woman out there making mistakes and forced me to reflect on my own emotional relationship with money. 6 months ago I was heavily in debt with my business and had numerous credit cards run to the max. Now I am completely debt free and planning to build a secure financial future and have thought about a pension for the first time in my life. The book is perfect for every type of woman and I would give it to every 18year old adult female about to start her life! in fact I have bought extra copies to give as gifts to nieces, friends and colleagues! Aged 41 I wish I had read this book 20 years ago and avoided some of the financial and emotional pitfalls. Inspired, I actually contacted the author Simonne to find out how much she would charge and to have a slightly more in-depth and intense approach. Although her fee seemed high at first, it's the best few hundred pounds I have ever spent and less than a designer handbag! I paid off huge debt and built my business and belief in myself in a very small space of time. I am now exploring ISA's my first mortgage and expanding my portfolio. Something I never thought I would even think about.

I wish this book was around when I was 17 and starting to take control of my finances ( although control is probably the wrong word). I might have resisted overspending at university and ending up in huge debt which then set me on my back foot at the start of my working life. Reading this book was like a revelation, I could hear my own experiences in the voices of many of the women. I think that the authors have an amazing grasp on how women see money and spending, and somehow understanding that there is a reason that I behaved in a certain way made it much easier to change what I was doing. I now get a buzz from saving rather than spending, and I read the money sections in papers which I used to put to the bottom of the pile as they seemed as if they were written in a foreign language. I feel empowered and excited about my relationship with money, and the best thing is that I will get to pass on this knowledge to my 2 daughters when the time comes. I'm going to buy them both a copy!

I bought this book a couple of months ago now when I was having a bit of a spending spree on books! I've always been fairly in control of my finances but this book offered some good pratical advice and is written in a very informative yet humourous and non-patronising way. It motivated me to search online for an ISA (which I've since opened), a new bank account, and other savings options, I've also reviewed my credit card to see if there's a better option out there. In many ways it's quite an empowering feeling you get after reading this, and I've also since set up a pension through work. I'm now considering passing it on to some friends who I think need some helpful tips.

I loved this book. It is well written and easy to read. Obviously aimed at the female reader but I'm sure there are a few men who could use some tips from this too. I have already put many of the suggestions into practice, and it has really opened my eyes to the merits of paying off the mortgage and living as debt-free as possible. I only wish I could have read this book years ago as I might have been rich by now! A brilliant gift for a student, and should be given to every young female with their first pay cheque! The accompanying website is also worth a look. Money very well-spent as it will save me a fortune in the long-run. I feel my finances are already more organised than ever before, and they can only get better now that I know not to bury my head in the sand over debt and monthly budgeting.

I've only had this book for about 2 weeks, but I've read it twice, and made changes to my finances already. I feel like the book was written by someone who knew me and completely understood my attitude to money. I'm looking forward to my next pay day, not because I want to buy something new, but because I can't wait to start to my new budget and pay off my credit card. Honestly considering buying a copy for all my female friends and family members! Excellent book, I would recommend it to anyone.

Read Sheconomics in one sitting and was very impressed with content, tips and action plans. Since taking on a hefty mortgage back in 2008, this naturally forced me into reviewing finances and putting some strategies in place. It's nice to see that so far so good, and that the book contains some further food for thought in terms of planning for a more financially secure future. Let's hope there's a follow on book.

Fantastic book! Recommended it to my friends. Completely changed my way of shopping and doing finances. In a week, I've saved over £1,000 a year, thanks to this book.
This book is a good place to start if you want to change your money habits. Wish I read it 30 years ago.
