9780007235193: Love Is Not Enough: A Smart Woman's Guide to Money

Merryn Somerset Webb, star of Channel 4's hit series ‘Superscrimpers’, shows you how to face the future with both money and confidence in this financial bible for sassy women.

Money may not buy you love but it certainly helps with life's other little luxuries. From shopping sprees to pension plans, ISAs to investments, money plays a crucial role in our present and future comfort. We may not like to admit it, but diamonds – or cold, hard cash – really can be a girl's best friend.

So why, when women have much to celebrate, are we reluctant to talk about it? Why, when we have more wealth in our own names than ever before, do women take less interest in money than men? And why do we still feel that demonstrating an interest in finance is somehow…unfeminine? Because let's face it – for most of us, Prince Charming and his bank balance just aren't coming. If we want to secure our futures we're going to have to do it ourselves.

The good news is that it's not hard to do. Dealing with our personal finances is much, much easier than the financial industry would have us believe. Women tend to make better investors than men too – our instincts, so to speak, are on the money. All we need is a bit of know-how and the confidence to put it into practice.

Combining years of financial expertise with a healthy dose of scepticism and an easy sense of humour, Merryn Somerset Webb's sharp, witty and appealing guide to personal wealth for sassy women provides the answers. Whether you're drowning in debt, negotiating a higher salary or tackling the thorny issue of a pre-nup, just one read through and you'll be in a position to sort your finances out for good, transforming them from a constant worry into a source of peace of mind.

Review:

‘Essential Reading.’ Harper's Bazaar

From the Publisher:

It was easy for our parents' generation. Most of the time they took for
granted that they would be able to afford to buy a house, have a family and
enjoy a pleasant retirement.

It's not the same any more.

Soaring taxes, debt and living costs, ridiculous house prices and the
partial collapse of the pensions system have shrouded our financial futures
in worry and doubt.

And even though it's nice to think that we'll stumble on a get-out clause -
a rich partner perhaps - there are absolutely no guarantees that we'll be
lucky enough to find one.

As Merryn says, women simply can't rely on other people to take control of
their finances any more. Women have to take control of their finances NOW.

Love is Not Enough provides a smart, pain-free and entertaining guide for
you to do just that, whatever stage of life you are at.
