That being said, I skipped over a lot of the book because it wasn't relevant to my current situation. The insurance section cover's a lot of medicare and medicaid information that doesn't apply to me (26 yrs old, married, no kids), the financial intimacy section deals a lot with divorce, and I don't have any debt issues (for which 83 pages are devoted to). The homeowners sections was great, with lots of information about points and APR's that aren't talked about at banks. Paying for college had a lot of basic information and could have been summarized in about 3-4 pages instead of the 20 it is.
Tons of information, not much of it relevant and most of it fairly basic.
I don't rate many books, generally because I like them but this one is worth warning the reader: if you have basic knowledge of financial systems, this probably isn't for you. A book I really like, especially for younger adults is Suze's "The Money Book for the Young, Fabulous and Broke." Robert Kiyosaki "Rich Dad Poor Dad" books are always worth reading as well.
I will keep this book as a reference in my library. Thanks Suze......
It is very fulfilling to actually understand my personal finances in a fun and entertaining way, since I have always disliked economics. If you are a person that wants to LEARN AND APPLY all the steps there are to become debt free, then this book is for you. This is a very good reference book to have in your library. Suze Orman answers all the questions there are about personal finances. I still haven't finished reading it (it has 11 chapters and almost 600 pages!), but it has been worth my time.
