From Library Journal
Certified financial planner Orman (The 9 Steps to Financial Freedom) lets listeners in on some of her seminars as she explains sound principles of money management. The material is organized in three main sections: dealing with formative childhood experiences with money; the "must dos" or laws of money; and the secrets of the money cycle and the realization that self-worth is not measured by net worth. While the information about the practical elements of finance, such as dealing with trusts and wills, controlling credit card use, saving for retirement, and approaching insurance correctly, is certainly not new, what distinguishes this title is the emphasis on a self-help approach to grappling with core emotional and psychological root causes of money problems. While this strategy may work with seminar participants, in the audio version it results in many sad, embarrassing admissions by the participants that detract from the factual advice. Look to Orman's other narrative works for useful information on money management; listeners might want to attend the seminars to deal with their personal money difficulties. Recommended only on demand in public libraries that may still lack other titles from this financial expert.Dale Farris, Groves, TX
