Long ago, Liz Perle made a quiet contract with cash: She would do what it took to get it - work hard, marry right - but she didn’t want to have to think about it too much. Since she was a young girl, the subject of money had been quietly sidestepped, a shadowy factor whose private influence was impolite to discuss.

This isn't going let you quit your day job, not right away anyhow. But it will probably help you make the payment on a new house, or that new Beamer you’ve been eyeing for the last several years.
The Money Mirror shows how women's attitudes towards money reflect their feelings about themselves. Through better understanding the ways they relate to money, women can develop positive emotional attitudes and gain control of economic and personal issues. "Lieberman and Lindner document how intelligent women are still very often prey to . . . a vicious cycle of fear and confusion that prevents us from effectively earning, negotiating, investing, and managing our incomes. This lively, anecdotal book explores women's historical relationship to money, the common symptoms,…. and the antidotes." —(Ms. Magazine) . . .[offers] a wealth of down-to-earth tips on how to develop money awareness on the road to leading healthier, happier financial lives."
