The rave online about this book made me buy it months back and I was not disappointed. The story line is fictional and predictable but also it is entertaining. It revolves around the life of a lagos "big girl" Zuri and her 4 friends. The
finance part of the book was so on point and I learnt a lot about investing, types of income, networking and so much more. Arese also included pratical exercises at the end of every chapter and for me I feel smart money woman speaks finance in an everyday layman's language because the advices are sound and easily achieve able.



Overall , the smart money is a pretty good read and I would rate it an 8/10. I would also recommend this book because it's a must read.

Have you read the book??? Let me know by dropping your comments below.
