Editorial Reviews

“Her general points—for example, that the spending and saving habits we develop in our twenties have a significant impact on our financial future—are solid. And she is occasionally very witty.” New York Times
“Excellent book…This invaluable resource does much more than fill a niche; it bridges a huge gap.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“For every woman who has struggled with the concept of investing or groaned at the thought of retirement funds and college tuition.” Foreword Reviews
“Anyone who tells you women don’t need financial advice specifically for them is wrong. Whether you’re the caretaker, the breadwinner, or both, Smart Mom, Rich Mom will be an indispensable resource for you.” Jean Chatzky, financial editor, the Today show
