Helpful book Oct 14, 2006
Very good book, deals with different aspects of overspending. Something for everyone with every kind of spending problem. Highly recommended. It made me feel like I was not the only one and that other people controlled their problems, so can I!
Just touched the surface of the problem; too many personal testimonies Aug 30, 2006
As a Christian woman, I was hoping this book would really help with my problem of overspending, but it didn't! I don't even plan to finish reading the last 60 pages of the book. I'm looking for a book that goes more into depth on how to solve the problem, and I personally don't believe 12 step programs are the key to solving shopping addictions. Had I known this book so heavily relied on testimonies, I would not have purchased it.
Regain control over your spending May 27, 2006
About the time I was maxing out my credit card in too many digits to mention, I found Karen O'Connor's book. Through it I realized that my lack of financial discipline was not only hurting my family but also keeping me from helping others as I'd like. While reading her book, I had to face up to some negative behaviors but now am on the right track to freedom from financial bondage. I highly recommend this book!
Very Helpful. Mar 16, 2006
I didn't realize how much I fell into this category until I read this book. I was a little surprised that there were quite a few references to religion in this book, but it by no means was offensive or trying to convert anyone. I am reading it in conjunction with Overcoming Overspending, A Winning Plan For Spenders And Their Partners, and for the first time in years, my bank account is not in the red. Motivating, inspiring. A real wake up call for women who have been raised to be shoppers.
women who spend to much and ...Christianity Nov 18, 2005
This book had a some good ideas and some interesting stories about real people that have issues with money. The part I didn't like was the smattering of bible verses and the near constant mention of Jesus, God or the bible (this was the focus of the 40 + page recovery section). This book is great if you want to hear about overshopping and the christian perspective and christian way to recover but if you are looking for something that just deals with women and money in a more secular way, this is not for you. The book title, back cover and description should have given more of an indication that religion would be a focal point of the book.
