This is a book of strictly FAQ's; the entire format is reader questions and short answers by Suze. Questions such as "Will i be charged a fee for using my debit card?" and "What exactly is a credit score?" are among the very basic while "Does the money I get from a reverse mortgage affect my Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, or SSi benefits?" are a little less known.

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 started to read Dave Ramsey books, and a friend recommended I check this book out. Suze Orman covers a lot of elementary things that unfortunately aren't always taught in school. I think this is a great guide for any one starting out on their own. However, I don't agree with everything she says in her book. Dave Ramsey has WAY more financially sound advice when it comes to debt. Of course, most of his books are a "get out of debt" style, while this is more of a descriptive book on a broad range of financial issues. Great tool. I recommend this book to add to your collection.

I chose 5 star because this book is very extensive in its coverage, well written and explains complex material in everyday language. It is a great primer for anyone seeking basic information on personal finance issues.

This book offers sound advice to follow in areas I never thought about. Who thinks about will's and life insurance. I sure didn't until I picked up this book. I like the set up of the book. Q&A type. Makes it easy to jump to the area of my question and look at the answers. I've given this to my nephew and suggested to my sister. Hope they follow Suze's advice.

I like to keep this book in my library. I think it is a great reference tool. She covers everything. I think the only downside is that she doesn't and can't possibly gear her advice to my particular financial picture. But she offers very helpful general principals to follow.

I think this book should be required reading for high school students!! Unfortunately I read it it too late in life and made some serious mistakes.
