Rich Bitch: A Simple 12-Step Plan for Getting Your Financial Life Together...Finally by Nicole Lapin, published February 24, 2015 by Harlequin.
Genre: self-help

At first glance, this seems like a fairly basic book on personal finance, for the college aged group or young adults. The author outlines her 12-step program to finance in this book that can be open at random and read in any order. 

Book beginning, first chapter:
Step 1
Stop Smiling and Nodding
Embrace the Rich Bitch Attitude

Every single story goes back to money. I learned that being in the news world for so long. If you want to get to the heart of any story, you just have to follow the money trail.

So, let's follow the money trail of your life.
Yes,that will take us through the nuts and bolts of hard-core personal finance. Of course. But it also means going down paths of topics like shacking up and taking care of yourself. "Wait, say what, Lapin? Those aren't money issues," you might be thinking. Well, sure. they're just topics about men and wellness at first blush, but they are absolutely money topics, too....

Page 56:
5. Bitches who lack ambition. I will elaborate more in Step 8, but start freeing yourself from the anxiety of saving so much by...making more. Yes, I know, that's easier said than done, but if you start coming from a place of aspiration instead of desperation, you will change the way you look at money....think of making more, not spending less, as our best weapon against going broke.  

And so it goes....advice for the up and coming. A book I'll pick up and open at random to learn something new (even at my age!) 

What are you reading this Friday?

Thanks to the publisher for a feature/review copy of this book.

Sounds like this book would be valuable for young adults -- and maybe older adults too! Knowledge about money matters can sure make life easier and less stressful, no matter your income level.

I'm turned off, honestly. Too much use of bitch for me and I swear regularly. Guess I don't appreciate it in a non-fiction sense. Hope you do. Happy weekend!

I don't know who she is and I'm not thrilled by her writing style and use of language but I do agree that women need to learn more about managing money and if helps you that's all that matters...lol...here's my Friday meme
