Smart Girls Marry Money

smart_girlsAnne Kingston has written a very positive (surprising even herself) review of Smart Girls Marry Money in the current issue of Maclean’s. Here are some tidbits from the article:

“its retrograde title seems calculated to repel actual “smart girls” — women who sail by the “self-help” aisle and who would kneecap anyone who called them “girls.”  But skim more deeply … and it’s apparent this isn’t a 21-century How to Marry a Millionaire. Rather [the authors] adopt a satiric tone to deliver a surprisingly subversive self-help manifesto: imagine, if you can, Dorothy Parker writing for Cosmo . . .
. . . the book’s message, ultimately, is not to mine for gold, but to remove the blinkers and take charge.”
