Review: Shoo, Jimmy Choo!

Catey Hill kindly sent me a copy of her book Shoo, Jimmy Choo!: The Modern Girl's Guide to Spending Less and Saving More a very long time ago, and here is a very, very late review.

This is a very accessible and relatable personal finance guide for 20- and 30- something women . Catey's tone is that of a good friend - though one who is not afraid to smack some sense into you if you complain that you are broke and crying into your four dollar daily latte.

I have several friends who could greatly benefit from this book, as well as Catey's helpful website that features plenty of tools to help get your finances on track.

This is a very good introduction to personal finance, and it covers all of the bases. Keep in mind it is written for a very specific audience. Though much of the information would be helpful to anybody, it is really aimed towards 20- and 30- something women who have a love of fashion and style, and might currently be living outside their means.
