Some good tips but nothing earth shattering. Jan 30, 2008
It has been several years since I read this book, but I do remember that I was not incredibly impressed. I was expecting some really strong powerful ideas, but rather remember coming away with a few luke warm tips and ideas. I do believe the book is strongly geared towards helping husbands who are in a traditional job in the corporate world. My husband works in the corporate world but is not in a traditional job so it wasn't to helpful for us anyway. Good luck in your quest to be a SAHM!
Waste of my money Jun 23, 2004
Unless you are looking for a way for your husband to get a new higher paying job or get a pay raise, this book is not for you. I am currently a stay-at-home mom and absolutely love it, but am looking for a way to boost our income a bit. The whole book is about techniques to find your husband a better job or to ask for a raise if he is underpaid. There is one chapter on small jobs for extra income, but that's it.
Helped me May 11, 2004
I thought this was a great book. It was easy to read and It had lots of helpful techniques and resources including websites and phone numbers to make it easier to increase your income. My wife and I used the info and I did get a raise. I would definitely recommend it. I think the people with negative comments haven't actually read the book or if they have maybe they are too jaded by life to have hope...
Agree with the concept- male view absent, poorly written... Mar 7, 2004
This book isn't for women that want to help their husbands make more money. This book is written for women who are wishful thinkers.
As much as women may not want to hear it- supporting their husband means being an effective and productive household manager. It means being willing to defer gratification "wants" in favor not only of more income, but a steadily growing net worth which is the ultimate foundation for financial security. Women (and men) who are a bottomless, insatiable pit of "need" for destructive assets like automobiles, which the whole time you're making interest payments on them, are rapidly depreciating will never get ahead with mere "cheerleading" which seems to be where the advice begins and ends in this book.
Sorry, ladies but telling your husbands daily that they're "Smart enough, good enough, and doggone it- they're worth it" isn't a strategy. It's wishful thinking.
Don't let naysayers keep you from reading this book Feb 8, 2004
Obviously a lot of the reviews written here are about people's objections to stay-at-home moms, not the book itself. I am a feminist, and there is nothing wrong with helping yourhusband or partner earn more money (man, if you don't like the idea of staying home with your kids, than don't do it-- don't tell people to earn thier own money and let the husband stay home! Geez! Feeling a little insecure about your own choices?)
This book is really a great idea, and not a new idea either. This is the attitude my grandmother had about her husband's work, and she was much more financially stable than most women today. Obviously you want to have your own work skills, bank account, savings account, in case of death or divorce, but for many women who can not possibly do any more penny-pinching, and who either don't want to use up thier time with thier children running a business from home, or are already doing so and could use more money, this is agreat resource.
Good job to the author! Thank you for writing a book about something that us women have been thinking about.
I think this book is worth its price, even on a stay at home mom budget!
Kids have the right to be cared for by people who love them, and I think any book that helps a women or man stay home with thier own children is a great addition. I am going to recommend to my library that they buy this book.
As for the folks who review this book and criticize moms at home, why are you reading tis book in the first place? Seems thou dost protest too much.............
