Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Why is it that women, who are so competent in all other areas of their lives, cannot find the same competence when it comes to matters of money?

Suze Orman investigates the complicated, dysfunctional relationship women have with money in this groundbreaking new book. With her signature mix of insight, compassion, and soul-deep recognition, she equips women with the financial knowledge and emotional awareness to overcome the blocks that have kept them from making more out of the money they make. At the center of the book is The Save Yourself Plan—a streamlined, five-month program that delivers genuine long-term financial security. But whats at stake is far bigger than money itself: Its about every womans sense of who she is and what she deserves, and why it all begins with the decision to save yourself.

Review:

"Orman, whose sunny demeanor and sage personal finance advice have won the hearts of millions of readers and viewers of her eponymous CNBC show, dishes out money basics especially for women. Why is it, she asks, that in an age where women are earning larger paychecks than ever before and attaining ever-higher positions in the corporate world, that so many feel like they are drowning in debt and financial ignorance? Orman begins with some classic schadenfreude by telling her own inspiring story: the college dropout and waitress, primarily on the basis of her gangbusters personality, got some customers to loan her money to start her own restaurant — but the clueless neophyte promptly lost every penny to a shady broker. Undeterred, she decided to educate herself about money by becoming a broker herself. She shares her hard-won wisdom with trademark enthusiasm. This is a book for total beginners — those who need to learn the difference between a savings and a checking account, or between a traditional IRA and a Roth. But even financially savvy listeners will enjoy Orman's chatty style, accentuated by the conversational and intimate approach she takes with the narration. Simultaneous release with the Spiegel & Grau hardcover (Reviews, Mar. 5)." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
