"One of the most powerful determinants of a woman's quality of life is her relationship with money. If she takes good care of her financial health, she lives life on her terms. If, however, she avoids taking responsibility for this important area of her life, she relinquishes her power to forces outside of herself. In "Money, A Memoir," Liz Perle offers a straightforward and deeply personal account of what it takes for women to reclaim their financial and emotional freedom."--Cheryl Richardson, author of ""Take Time for Your Life"""""If you want to understand many women's complex and contradictory attitudes about money, take out your wallet and buy Liz Perle's very personal and very honest look at the subject in "Money, A Memoir."" Myrna Blyth, former editor-in-chief of "Ladies Home Journal" and author of "Spin Sisters" "A smart, funny, insightful book on woman and money. Liz Perle writes with love and enthusiasm about this essential topic."--Judith Orloff M.D., author of "Positive Energy" "This deceptively powerful book is a must-read for any woman who really wants to be in control of her life. Written with humor and hard-won wisdom, I hope it inspires women to really look honestly at what at their relationship is to money. It's an examination that's long overdue."-- Arianna Huffington, editor of the Huffingtonreport.com "Change is in the air. Someone finally has the courage to be straight about women's emotional struggles with money. Every woman who reads this touching, smart and true book will come away with more insight into one of the most important relationships in her life - the one between her and her pocketbook." -- Debbie Ford, author of "The Dark Side of the Light Chasers "and "The Best Year of Your Life""""This is a book for any woman who feels uncomfortable with the subject of money, i.e., nearly all of us. It proves what Simone de Beauvoir wrote fifty years ago--that women will always be the second sex until we take financial responsibility for our lives. Part autobiography, part social science study, "Money, A Memoir" is an intelligent, reader-friendly book that couldn't be more timely."--Marilyn Yalom, author of "History of the Wife "and" Birth of the Chess Queen"
