Audio book. A decent financial book. There are portions of this book that deserve 5 stars...mainly the parts where she really educates you on some of the lesser understood parts of your personal finance and planning (estate planning, life insurance, etc.). The parts that I struggled with were some of her "spritual" correlations that she would try to draw between personal finance and our everyday life. One example that bothered me is that she would say that if you have money saved that your car w ...more
This audiobook was very informative. I learned a lot about wills and power of attorney types. I found out that the power of attorney I signed for my parents is not actually the one I need. I also learned a lot about investing in mutual funds. Orman's information I could hear was easy to understand and I definitely learned a lot. So why did I give it a 2 star rating?

A good general overview of financial structure, with good explanations of legal protection and inherited wealth, but glosses over any income generation, etc. More of a primer and starting block to additional future financial literacy. Recommended for those starting out or getting going.

I really enjoyed this. I actually read it 3 times while I had it. I loved Suze's style and teaching methods. There was so much that made sense to me! I've even noticed myself applying and thinking about the things she brought to the surface. Highly recommend for everyone.
This book has helpful, easy to understand explanations of some more complicated parts of financial life, such as wills and estate planning. Even if you don't take her advice, the definition of different financial aspects provides a good reference.
