One Book, Three Opinions


Gold Diggers and Deadbeat Dads: True Stories of Friends, Family, and Financial Ruin was published just a week ago!

I’m thrilled that three writers instantly wrote book reviews on their blogs, each from an entirely different perspective.

Accomplished personal finance writer Julie Rains took a unique religious look at how money can ruin relationships on her inspiring blog, Working to Live.

Free to Pursue‘s author F2P, an avid reader of many genres, somehow found time to write her review titled “Infidelity of a Different Kind That Can Hurt Just as Much.”

Doug Nordman of The Military Guide, who is a noted expert on all issues where money and military service collide, wrote the best one-line summary: “The book is a voyeuristic, slow-motion-train-wreck, schadenfreude read.”

Thanks for your support!
