Publisher's Summary

The Money Book for the Young, Fabulous, & Broke is financial expert Suze Orman's answer to a generation's cry for help. They're called "Generation Debt", people in their 20s and 30s who graduate from college with a mountain of student loan debt and are stuck with one of the weakest job markets in recent history, yet they're painfully aware of the urgent need to take matters into their own hands. The Money Book was written to address the specific financial reality that young people face today. Suze Orman tells her young, fabulous, and broke listeners precisely what actions to take and why. Her advice at times bucks conventional wisdom (Did she just say use your credit card?) and may even seem counterintuitive (Pay into a retirement fund even though your credit card debt is killing you?), but it's her honesty, understanding, and uncanny ability to anticipate the needs of her readers that have made her the most trusted financial expert of the day. Suze takes listeners past broke, to a secure place where they'll never have to worry about revisiting broke again. And she begins the journey with a bit of overwhelmingly good news (yes, there really is good news): Young people have the greatest asset of all on their side - time.

Take This Advice

Save your money and time by not purchaing and listening to this piece of financial porn. Suz has made a fortune by giving bad advice, she is however great at selling books.

a good primer

Of course, all of the advice here can be found elsewhere and probably for free. What makes this book worth it is the straight forward and simple delivery. Suze Orman doesn't just give out financial advice, she talks about life in bigger terms and asks readers to really analyze themselves-- their financial personality-- and to question their goals and priorities in life. For someone in their twenties-early thirties, this book is GREAT. A quick read, easy to digest. It gets you thinking not just about your money, but about where you're going in life and how you're getting there.
