David, I have been a Certified Financial Planner ™ since 1988 and am often asked for a recommendation on a book which covers financial planning well. There are many, as you know, but few that are interesting, easy to read, easy to understand, AND laid out in a way to get people to take action. Your Smart Women and Smart Couples books both fill the bill to a T. I am now buying them by the dozens and handing them out to clients as gifts and recommending that clients give them as gifts to their young adult children, nieces & nephews, grandchildren, etc.
I also emailed the local personal finance columnist today in response to his Sunday column which listed several books to buy for college graduates that cover financial planning topics. I told him your two books were the best I had found in over 15 years.
Keep up the good work!!!! I, too, share your passion for increasing financial literacy among young people.
