"Well-written first-person accounts result in an engrossing read throughout. It's easy to be affected by their experiences, with emotions running the gamut of happy to dismay to sadness at some outcomes."--New Straits Times (Malaysia)
"Introducing the 27 emotionally invested and powerfully introspective essays in THE SECRET CURRENCY OF LOVE. All the bases are covered here, from the hard lessons women learn (and impart) to the inextricability of romance and cold hard cash."--Elle
"Multiple themes are explored in personal and heartfelt ways: money is success, failure, control, submission, love and hate. Money can mean the chance at motherhood or the ruin of a marriage. In the end, money is everything and nothing."--Forbes
"Everyone wants to know their worth, in both love and money -- but the lessons lie in the tension between the two. The women who authored this incredible collection of essays dare to get inside that conflict and unpeel the complicated truths that make up our life stories."--Stacy Morrison, Editor-in-Chief, Redbook Magazine
"A compelling new anthology, The Secret Currency of Love: The Unabashed Truth about Women, Money, and Relationships. In it, a number of prominent female writers (including Julia Glass, Lauri Abraham and Joni Evans) spill the beans about money in their own lives."--Time magazine
"The most interesting anthology I've seen in years. I read it with fascination, to the very last page."--Cathi Hanauer, novelist and editor of The Bitch in the House
"Funny, insightful and brutally honest, this book is Sex & The City meets The Wall Street Journal, with a sprinkle of Dostoevsky. Hilary Black has inspired stellar writers to wax poetic (and at times, hilariously pathetic) on the last taboo: money. Juicy, smart, dramatic and insightful--an addictive read."--Beth Kobliner, author of Get a Financial Life: Personal Finance in Your Twenties and Thirties
"Deeply honest and scandalously revealing, THE SECRET CURRENCY OF LOVE offers a mirror into our own complicated feelings about money and relationships--and every woman who reads it will see herself in its pages. You won't be able to put it down!"--Liz Lange, Founder, Liz Lange Maternity
"This exceptionally honest and poignant collection deserves a place on the bookshelves of women of all ages, backgrounds, income, net worth levels and walks of life."--Publishers Weekly (starred review and Pick of the Week)
"A compelling new anthology that offers a fascinating look at how women view money that is, by turns witty, scandalous, poignant and heart-rending."--San Antonio Express-News
