Just Read: Worth It by @AmandaSteinberg

Worth It Book Review On Novels And Nonfiction

Amanda Steinberg is the founder of the website Daily Worth, a mecca for all sorts of financial advice specifically targeted to women. Recent posts include Childcare And Taxes: Five Things You Should Know, Is Pet Insurance Worth It and How Your Health Affects Your Long Term Wealth. The site even has a post for book lovers like us on the 10 Best Finance Books For Women.

Steinberg decided to recently publish her own manual on how to take control of your financial life called Worth It. It was one of the books featured on my February 2017 Book Releases list and I was lucky enough to get a copy from the publisher to review.

I’ve read my fair share of personal finance books, and I think what Worth It has to offer that others books I’ve read don’t do as well is a framework through which to reflect on your current financial practices and money personality. Steinberg is dead honest in the book about her own past financial mistakes and introduces topics like investing, buying a home and cash flow through the experiences of other real life women just like her. If you’re looking for detailed advice on investment vehicles, types of mortgages or budgeting strategies, this isn’t the right book to turn to. It’s the right pick for someone who wants to start to re-evaluate their relationship to money and rethink their attitude towards managing their finances.

14 February 2017 Book Releases I'm Excited To Read On Novels And Nonfiction

February was definitely an easier month for which to pick a good number of new Nonfiction and Fiction releases that I’m excited about. I think January is typically a less active month in the publishing world, so I had a harder time ferreting titles out that I felt truly compelling. This month, on the other hand, I had to cull my list down from 20 titles or so to ones that I thought sounded the most interesting.

I would also add Claire Fuller’s Swimming Lessons to the list but I’ve already read it (here is my review). It was available to Book Of The Month subscribers as an exclusive and one of their five December 2016 picks, but will be released in hardcover to everyone else on February 7th 2017. I highly recommend it – the way in which the story is in part told through past letters written by the absent mother figure in the novel is fascinating.
