Great for Women involved in relationships or business or life in general... Jun 26, 2007
I was concerned that this book might be outdated - it's not. This book is about women taking care of themselves and consciously, smartly dealing with legal situations (business, relationship). As long as we're involved in life - we might as well know what we're getting into up front rather than at the end...when women often discover that we have blindly trusted the wrong things... (I had that experience and really wish I'd known then what I know now...) It's not the ideal, but it's reality - and it's better to learn up front than to spend months or years cleaning up the mess of 'Just signing here'. This a great book for any woman who wants to be taken care of in her life. This will help ensure that you are. (Please, please don't sign anything without reading AND consulting an attorney AND understanding what you're reading.)
Not only for women! Nov 22, 2003
I just finished this book and was simply amazed at how much I learned from such an interesting and easy to read book. Ms. Barrett was able to take complex issues and make them actually "fun" to read by the way she brought in real life stories as examples. This is a book that men and women should read because it raises one's awareness as to steps that each of us need to take to protect ourselves. I just bought a batch of the books so that i could give my family and friends a copy as I think everyone should read it! It is a gift that you can, and should, give to those you care about.
Take Off the Rose Colored Glasses Aug 13, 2003
This book is a must read for any woman one who is in a relationship, married, single, owns a home, a business, or works. Marilyn Barrett explains how we can prevent making bad and often times disasterous decisions based on the glow of a relationship. This is "real world" information that can protect us from losing everything while providing tips on how to keep our financial futures secure.
Indispensable book Aug 12, 2003
I am in the middle of a divorce and a friend recommended I read this book. I found it indispensable in helping me deal with the divorce realistically and strong. This is a "call to arms" for women to take charge of their lives and take care of themselves and their children. I am recommending it to every woman I know.
Useful, Important Book! May 15, 2003
As a single, twenty-something female, I have found this book very useful. Marilyn Barrett tells us the things that our parents and teachers don't, but are necessary to protect ourselves out in the "big, bad world." I've found this book particularly helpful right now because I am looking to buy my first condo and Marilyn Barrett's advice about home ownership is invaluable.
