We live in a world of growing singleness. While lots of attention is being paid to senior singles, less has been given to younger women and men who find themselves suddenly single through separation or divorce or through the death of a partner or to those who come to the realization that perhaps partnership isn't in the cards and they need to start planning for themselves. Single women make up more than half the population of Canadian women. And they're facing financial and life challenges for which they're unprepared. A newly minted CEO of Everything will face some challenges. Jobs once shared by two now fall on the shoulders of one. And as if life isn't busy enough, the state of singleness means you get to do it all, all day and every day. This book will help readers decide what's urgent, what's important and what they can afford to just let go unattended. Gail Vaz-Oxlade is the author of Debt-Free Forever and Money Rules. She has had a divorce three times (almost), raised kids, run a business, made mistakes and fixed them.

The jacket clearly explains that this book will mostly likely appeal to individuals who are single because of divorce or widowhood. Even still, I chose to read the book because I am trying to read all of the Gail Vaz-Oxlade printed books that the Edmonton Public Library (EPL) has.

My goal is to learn how to balance a budget. As Gail explains in "CEO of Everything", her book "Debt-Free Forever" would be a better match for my current needs. Nevertheless, "CEO of Everything" taught me how to think differently about my money: Owning your own house may not be the most important thing in life. Don't waste time fussing over who you were or where you have been. Take the time to figure out what you want out of life, downsize, sell, and go chase that dream. Though, be aware that there may come a time when you may no longer be able to work because of medical problems. Don't forget to prepare for retirement, too! Sacrifices come now, so that you can survive later.

I can hear Gail's voice, which adds to the entertainment factor. Easy-to-read, as well as informative; Good anecdotes, and guidelines to follow. Very good information, even if one isn't "single".
