If you’re a procrastinator who hopes your finances will work themselves out, Prince Charming Isn’t Coming might be the right book for you. Contrary to what the title may suggest, it isn’t an outdated cautionary tale about the dangers of pinning your financial hopes on a man. Instead, the metaphorical “Prince” represents any cure-alls that you might fantasize about (“I’ll finally get that raise soon” or “Maybe I’ll inherit money from my aunt”) instead of paying your credit card bill right now.
The book became a best seller in the late ’90s and it’s a classic for a reason: The common psychological and interpersonal reasons why women avoid money are, unfortunately, still widespread.
A review from an Amazon customer, “I loved it! I could personally relate to Barbara Stanny’s story because it is my story too. I lost a significant amount of inherited money to an “investment advisor”. I became a financial planner as a result. I wanted to teach others the importance of educating ourselves about money and how to invest and use it wisely. I have recommended this book to many of my financial planning clients & friends who found it just as insightful and empowering as I did.”
