{{Book Review}} The Financially Confident Woman by Mary Hunt

You have what it takes to take control of your money

Have you ever felt that you lack the know-how to take control of your financial life? You're not alone. But it's not a lack of savvy that's the problem, says personal financial expert Mary Hunt; it's a lack of confidence. And Hunt is here to help you develop a can-do attitude toward money so that you can take control of your finances.

Using the lessons she's learned from her own hard-fought battle with debt, Hunt empowers you to cultivate nine essential money habits, including

· giving
· saving
· investing
· rejecting unsecured debt
· preparing for emergencies
· getting what you pay for
· and more

She also includes a six-week action plan to help you get started right away.

You're smart, you're capable, and you're just a few steps away from a positive, confident financial future.

*My Review*
As I opened this book to read it, I see that it was first published in 1996. 
Even though Mary Hunt did present information and plans for getting out of debt and 
make good financial habits. There were times while reading this book that I felt it was written more for single or those who are widowed. 

The author encourages readers to write checks and keep a balanced checkbook. 
Why would you do that since there is online/automatic bill pay, bank apps that let you immediately check balances.

Saving money and getting out of debt should be a priority, 
It would have been nice to see the percentage of income that needes to be 
saved instead of the dollar amounts.

This book will be most beneficial to fans of the author's website, 
single or widowed women, and those of higher and more affluent income.
