Money: A Memoir

Liz Perle, Author, Liz Perle, Read by Money: A MemoirLiz Perle

Having attained the right to earn and spend their own money only decades ago, women have a more complex relationship to cash than men, argues Perle (When Work Doesn't Work Anymore ) in this eye-opening audiobook. Much less a memoir than a call to action, Perle's audio uses her own unhealthy relationship with money as a springboard for a provocative discussion about women's finances—how money anxieties influence a woman's life decisions; how a woman's financial preparedness affects the way she feels about herself; and how, despite their tremendous buying power, women stand a greater chance than men of going bankrupt and of not having sufficient funds for retirement. Perle delivers this material in a measured, matter-of-fact manner. Indeed, some might accuse her of reading too slowly, but her deliberate pace makes it easy to grasp the impact of her weighty revelations. Although the audio lacks a clear organizational structure, it succeeds in driving home its primary message—that women need to be less ambivalent about money and more active in investing in the future—and in urging listeners to think about money in terms of not only what it can purchase, but how it has shaped their lives. Simultaneous release with the Holt hardcover (Reviews, Oct. 31, 2005). (Feb.)
