The financial strategies, goals, and principles taught in this book are aligned with the instructional practices, discipline, and belt structure of HapKiDo, a form of martial arts. The process is self-promoting since each belt level is matched to the successful implementation of a financial discipline. The main principle of HapKiDo is to neutralize the threat and seize the opportunity to defend one’s self. In this book the reader is taught how to recognize and neutralize financial threats and then how to seize financial opportunities. For that reason, I believe this book is a must read for anyone who wants to take his or her financial success to the next level.

Wall Street Kitchen by Victor Chiu is the perfect guide to investing for people who are not finance specialists. The book does not claim to make readers rich, but does claim to help them gain financial freedom. The unique writing style makes it accessible to the average person, as the author invites readers into his mother’s kitchen for a series of chats. In each chat, he shares a key step his housewife mother took to become financially independent by investing in stocks right at the kitchen table. And there is a related recipe for each financial lesson. There is nothing revolutionary in the advice offered; everything Victor’s mother did is time-tested and well-known, but it is presented in a style that makes it understandable to the average woman who would find other finance books intimidating.

Sometimes the best way to stick it to the man is by doing well for yourself. There’s just one problem: it’s hard to do well for yourself when systemic oppression has placed innumerable hurdles between you and your aspirations. The Feminist Financial Handbook provides real motivation and resources for real women who may be struggling – not only those who have already accumulated wealth. In this book, author Brynne Conroy provides actionable tips for women in business to overcome these obstacles without dulling the visceral experience of the real-life struggles women face as they try to master their money management and their lives.
Because women’s experiences don’t exist in a vacuum relegated to their gender, the handbook explores financial issues with anecdotes and perspectives of women of different races, sexual orientations and abilities. Whether you want to learn more about general financial planning principles, like saving or earning a higher income, or delve into issues that disproportionately affect women, like the wage gap or the long road to economic recovery after experiencing domestic violence, The Feminist Financial Handbook has stories and advice from women who have been there, worked through the struggle, and achieved personal success.
Carey Siegel is a retired business marketing executive who earned an MBA from the University of Chicago, and was honored with more than twenty awards during his business career. Further, by following the principles outlined in this book, Siegel was able to retire before the age of fifty. This easily digested book (188 pages cover to cover), began as a project the author intended to use to help his five children learn about managing money as they entered adulthood since these principles are rarely taught in high school or college. Unfortunately, most books on this subject tend to be too complicated for financial novices. So Siegel approached his project quite differently and focused on practical principles (which can be easily grasped and applied) that he learned as he navigated through his own financial life.
