Early in life, a former publishing executive decided to let her husband handle all the money issues in her life. In a memoir that includes the narratives of many such women, Liz Perle examines the obvious and not-so-obvious reasons for this "voluntary blindness." When her marriage ended unexpectedly, she discovered how little she knew about spending within one's means, investing, evaluating purchase decisions, negotiating pay, and planning for future security. She has an uncommon grasp of the emotional variables that drive the contradiction between women's wanting to be cared for and desiring independence and competency.
