Suze is da BOMB!!

I absolutely LOVED this book. I have daughters who don't know the first thing about saving money and no matter how I tried, I couldn't get them to sit down and listen to me explain finance to them. Even simple things like opening a checking account to how being financially independent can change your entire life, but Suze's book covers it ALL! And, in layman's terms. Anyone can understand this book. I also participated in the deposit program, thinking there was no way I was going to get that money after one year....but I did get it! I bought three and gave them away to my daughters and a friend's daughter. I'm back for another one for my 20 year old granddaughter - I think she's MORE than ready! Thank you Suze - you really are an excellent resource for anyone - at any level of financial education....or even no financial education...that's the beauty of this book.

The most basic of all books - Not recommended

I could not be more disappointed with Suze Orman's latest book. I loved the Young, Fabulous and Broke and eagerly awaited Women and Money. It is such a joke. The first 1/4 of the book is basically Suze telling us in her psychoanalytic persona how wonderful and powerful women are and how we can really get ahead finally. I don't need 1/4 of her book telling me I'm good enough - enough Stuart Smalley. Just give me the real financial details. And what really makes me mad- throughout the book (which is very very basic), she tells us to reference her website for additional info. Uh, hello? I just paid for a book and all I get is the very basic info on Roth IRA and Roth 401Ks? Not once does she say whether we can have a Roth IRA and a Roth 401K in the same year. Maybe if I go to her website, I can find out. What a joke. I would not wish this book on anyone. I think Suze should refund the money to those who purchased her book. Seriously.

    A Good, Basic, Foundation

    This book is a very basic financial guidebook for ladies who have little or no knowledge of finances. This book can get you started in the right direction, but doesn't do much past that. Much of the information in Women and Money is also in 9 Steps to Financial Freedom also by Suze Orman. I actually liked 9 Steps to Financial Freedom much better than Women and Money because it offers more information and goes more in depth.

    Where to start for women if you haven't started yet for financial knowledge and freedom

    While there's definitely more time I would have liked to see about not putting yourself 'on sale' and other more advanced topics, it is a great 'beginner's' and 'where to start' guide for women that haven't gotten started on the path to financial knowledge and freedom. It is definitely not for the woman that that has already gotten a good foundation and wants to know where to go from there - that may be the next one. But it is critical that all woman hear (or already know) what's laid out in this book and start making progress now. And BTW - to 'Marcela, a stay at home mom of 2' it's on p138 - that Roth 401k's and Roth IRA's are completely different and that you could qualify for both. So check it out.

    Easy Read

    I throughly enjoyed this book. Although some of the information was redundate, it was still valuable.

    more from this reviewer

    GREAT READ- A HEADS UP IN THESE TIMES OF ECONOMIC TURMOIL

    AS ALWAYS, MS. ORMAN IS VERY INFORMATIVE, KNOWLEDGEABLE AND DETAILED. SHE DOESN'T MINCE WORDS- WE NEED TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR OUR FINANCIAL MISTAKES, BUT WE NEED TO DO SO BY LOOKING FORWARD NOT DWELLING IN THE WHAT IF'S - SHE VERY COMPELLINGLY MAKES THE CASE THAT, WE NEED TO TAKE ACTION NOW BECAUSE THE WORST WE COULD DO IS BE PARALYZED BY FEAR AND DO NOTHING TO CHANGE OUR FINANCIAL FUTURE. THE BOOK GIVES YOU THE BASIC STEPS YOU NEED TO START MAKING THE CRUCIAL CHANGES NEEDED AND IS EASY TO FOLLOW. I NOT ONLY HAVE RECOMMENDED THIS BOOK TO MY FRIENDS AND COLLEAGUES,BUT ALREADY LEND IT OUT TO ONE OF THEM. HOPEFULLY I'LL GET IT BACK IN ONE PIECE AFTER IT MAKES THE ROUND.
