In this early (2003) "pre-crash" volume, Orman provides a readable, informal and very helpful guide to financial health. Much of what is presented is what your parents might have called good old-fashioned common sense, but as we know to our sorrow, that commodity has been in very short supply in recent years. I purchased this hard-cover copy through because I was unable to find it in local bookstores and I wanted a sturdy copy to give to my daughter who is one of the millions of Americans who must radically readjust their financial way of life. The fact is that doing so will require major rethinking about the kinds of personal values and choices that one makes: Suze guides the reader through five (why do so many self-help books require numbers in their titles?) principles or maxims that she calls "Laws of Money", or "Laws of Living". I found them to be applicable to many aspects of life, but particularly helpful in managing my finances as a retiree on a modest income. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to get a better real-world grip on their financial life, and as a gift to someone who needs this kind of help.
My daughter needed this book for her economics class. This book is a must read. The assignments in the back of the book really make your think.
This book is great for people who are inexperienced in handling finances. Suze lays forth ideology that should be followed if you are interested in having a good retirement and being able to provide for your family in the future. Many of the ideas presented in this book she states over and over again on her CNBC program The Suze Orman Show.
Some of the thinking put forth is plain common sense - such as realizing the damage that could result from building a high credit card debt. Some parts cause you to think about the financial implications beyond the obvious - such as the additional costs of owning a home.
Suze's books are geared towards individuals unfamiliar with the world of finance; people who shy away from words like "investing" and "interest rates". If you are starting off your life and intend to plan a financially prosperous future, definitely read this book. It could save much hardship in the future by giving you something to follow when making a major purchase such as a home, car, or college. It will help you plan your retirement. I would not recommend this book if you are financially competent and want to take your investments to the next level, such as diving into the stock market.
The additional pages in the back for writing notes and completing "exercises" did not intrigue me. But overall, the book was well written and Suze was able to bring her own personal parables into the book, making it an interesting read.
The Laws of Money, The Lessons of Life: Keep What You Have and Create What You Deserve Easy to read and understand. Helped me greatly.
Suze explains finances in an easy and enjoyable way. She gives vivid examples to help you remember the lessons she is teaching. Growing up, no one in my family talked about handling their finances because none of them understood the topic. I bought several additional copies of this book-on-CD to help my family become more educated about money and so they were not so dependent on others. I hope that this audio book will spark their interest and encourage them to pick up other books.
Here I have learned some great lessons that I use to this day and saved me from doing stupid mistakes. It may be common sense to most but a lot of people are in the dark when it comes to managing their finances I was glad to have read this book.
I am 100$ satisfied with this purchase. This book is a wonderful reference and is such a great discussion of practical financial advise. Shipping was as fast as promised.
Stockbroker info. Not what I expected.
