That format has become the norm with many financial books or newsletters, so people confident in their money-management skills would probably be bored to tears. Women who are deeply intimidated by money management -- but not necessarily investing -- should read this book. Women looking for investing guidance, however, might find it tedious.
Prince Charming isn't coming : how women get smart about money
But those who are intimidated won't feel alone, and they'll likely learn from some of the other women's experiences. Sources in the book have inherited money or can afford both a stockbroker and financial planner. That may intimidate readers because the book does speak to middle-upper class women who have money management issues. But many of the principles in Stanny's book, like self-esteem with money management and how to diversify investments, are good lessons every investor -- male or female -- should learn.
Even though "Prince Charming" is a story-telling, feelings-oriented book, men should leaf through the pages to understand the financial intimidation women in their lives could feel.
The fear and total lack of self-confidence among the women interviewed is astounding. What's even worse is that some handle large amounts of money or work in the financial industry. Women needing a tell-me-how-to-do-it book shouldn't pick up this one. It will drag on, although they might learn some interesting money-management fears about their gender along the way. Women who feel barriers to investing and were never introduced to money management should use it as a starter book.
