Money maven Suze Orman's latest book, Women & Money
addresses the complicated (and often dysfunctional) relationship women have with personal finance. Orman's direct, non-condescending style is perfect for this subject matter--she begins with the premise that "Women can invest, save, and handle debt as well and skillfully as any man" and then tackles the important question--"So why don't they?" Designed to educate and inspire, Women & Money
also offers a "Save Yourself Plan," a five-month program that "delivers genuine long-term financial security." Want to know more? Watch a video message from Suze below, and take a gander at the first chapter of Women & Money
--you'll be "controlling your destiny" in no time. --Daphne Durham
Read the First Chapter of Women & MoneyFor Women Only
I never thought I'd write a book about money just for women. I never thought it was necessary. So then why am I doing just that in my eighth book? And why now? Let me explain. All my previous books were written with the belief that gender is not a factor on any level in mastering the nuts and bolts of smart financial management. Women can invest, save, and handle debt just as well and skillfully as any man. I still believe that--why would anyone think differently? So imagine my surprise when I learned that some of the people closest to me in my life were in the dark about their own finances. Clueless. Or, in some cases, willfully resisting doing what they knew needed to be done. I'm talking about smart, competent, accomplished women who present a face to the world that is pure confidence and capability. Do you mean to tell me that I, Suze Orman, who make my living solving the financial problems of total strangers, couldn't spot the trouble brewing so close to home? I don't think I'm blind; I just think that these women became very, very good at hiding their troubles from me.Why not? They had years of practice hiding them from themselves.Read more from Chapter 1...

From Publishers Weekly
Orman, whose sunny demeanor and sage personal finance advice have won the hearts of millions of readers and viewers of her eponymous CNBC show, dishes out money basics especially for women. Why is it, she asks, that in an age where women are earning larger paychecks than ever before and attaining ever-higher positions in the corporate world, that so many feel like they are drowning in debt and financial ignorance? Orman begins with some classic schadenfreude by telling her own inspiring story: the college dropout and waitress, primarily on the basis of her gangbusters personality, got some customers to loan her money to start her own restaurant—but the clueless neophyte promptly lost every penny to a shady broker. Undeterred, she decided to educate herself about money by becoming a broker herself. She shares her hard-won wisdom with trademark enthusiasm. This is a book for total beginners—those who need to learn the difference between a savings and a checking account, or between a traditional IRA and a Roth. But even financially savvy listeners will enjoy Orman's chatty style, accentuated by the conversational and intimate approach she takes with the narration.
