Overview

What does it take to create your New American Dream?

Suze Orman, the woman millions of Americans have turned to for financial advice, says it’s time for a serious reconsideration of the American Dream—what promise it still holds, what aspects are in need of revision, and how it must be refashioned to fit our lives so that we can once again have faith that our hard work will pay off and that a secure and hopeful future is within our reach.
 
In nine electrifying chapters, Orman delivers a master class on personal finance for this pivotal moment in time. She addresses every aspect of the American Dream—home, family, career, retirement. She teaches us that in order to create lasting security we must learn to stand in our truth. We must recognize, embrace, and be honest about what is real for us today and allow that understanding to inform the choices we make.  The New American Dream is not the things we accumulate, says Orman, but the confidence that comes from knowing that which we’ve worked so hard for cannot be taken away from us. In THE MONEY CLASS, Orman teaches us how to take control over our present—right here, right now—in order to build the future of our dreams.
 
Whether navigating the complicated mix of money and family, offering the most comprehensive retirement resource available today, or delivering a bracing dose of reality when it comes to recalibrating our expectations and our goals, Orman educates us with her signature no-nonsense approach and laser-like clarity. She empowers us to live a life of integrity and honesty that will create an enduring legacy for future generations—a New American Dream that lies in truth, security, financial freedom, and peace of mind.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Suze teaches readers how to transform their thinking and reimagine the American dream.”—O: The Oprah Magazine
Publishers Weekly
With a clarion call to "stand in your truth," Orman (The Money Book for the Young, Fabulous & Broke) re-engineers much of the advice given in her previous works for her latest volume. Chock full of financial advice pertinent to the post-2008 economic landscape, the book addresses every age and stage of life. Organized into nine "classes," with each class/chapter further divided into related lessons, Orman's effort is characteristically upbeat and no-nonsense, offering lessons on family matters, homeownership, saving for college, emergencies, retirement, and more. Orman firmly guides readers when dealing with parenting issues or underwater mortgages. Orman declares herself "vehemently anti-allowance," opting instead for paying children to do household chores, and she explains how to implement such a policy. A class on careers gives honest advice for anyone facing continued unemployment or thinking of taking a lower paying position. And three of her classes focus on financial planning for the future and how readers as young as 20 can begin saving for retirement. After finishing Orman's book, and completing her exercises, readers will have a very clear sense of how they can achieve what she has rechristened the "New American Dream."

Suze offers a great foundation for the young and an excellent path for those of us near retirement and everything in between. Our economy has changed and we have to change our finances accordingly. Her advice on college loans is outstanding. There's something in this book for us all, but if you are a young adult, this book will help you prevent making major mistakes that could effect you for the rest of your life. This book also shows those of us who are not starting out how to change our plan for the economy today and help us to help our children. Suze has been great for years, but this is the best book so far.

I understand that Suze Orman said that what she told people to do ten years ago is wrong; however, if you paid attention you would see the reason why is the DOWN FALL in the ECONOMY we live in now. Ten years ago Suze Orman gave solid advice to match what was happening in the economy. No one expected that the banks and investors were doing things that were not sound; thus the CHANGE in advice to help those become financially stable in the CURRENT economy.

I have always liked Suze Orman but she is too funny. She keeps writing the same old stuff but changing the book cover to make it appear that she's doing something new. I guess she'll keep getting rich with her fabulous marketing skills.

I really like Suze Orman. I appreciate her ability to relate with the masses with her style of teaching. Any person can read and understand the lessons taught by Suze. Another book that I absolutely love is Generational Wealth: Business & Investing Guide to Building an Empire. That's probably the best book that I've read in the last five years or so.

Suze is great. This is a book that will deliver on the promise for your American dream. She did it and so can we. I also recommend Optimal Thinking: How to Be Your Best Self to develop the mindset to consistently optimize choices in our personal life and career. Read both books!

We have made our own messes and cant blame anyone but ourselves. I feel like she offers a lot of great advice and we should all consider taking a step back and changing our ways. Good book.

My partner and I were surprised with this book. This author successfully conveyed effective principles with ease. I'd definitely recommend this!

Because the revised edition (2012) has the same name as the old edition. The ereader digital software does not recognize the difference between the old and new book and therefore, will not allow the purchase of the new revised book, unless the old book is deleted.

Her first couple of books were useful but essentially there is nothing new here. It's as if she continually re-writes the same stuff over and over in different prose. Come on Suze!!!
Jessica_Berlin More than 1 year ago
For those of you who have had problems with finances in the past, or just questions regarding how to get your finances back in line, this is a great read. Suze is a brilliant woman who really knows her stuff. As a finance professional, I highly recommend this read to anyone.

I am in the process of reading this books. My opinion on the book so far is that i am learning things i did not know before. I am in my late twenties and i am now looking into getting on track with my finances in my life. The Money Class book explains things from saving for college to teaching your kids lessons on saving for their future. I like it personal.
MAMATETE More than 1 year ago
Suze knows what she is talking about and that is why I got this book. I have already put some of this information into my daily life. This is good for all people, if they are willing to be honest with themselves financially.
