I LOVED Suze's previous book for the Young Fabulous and Broke. I loved the layout of that book because it was pretty straightforward. Do this. THEN do this. And then this. And then THIS. The new book, Women and Money, rambled on and on and on and on so much in the first few chapters about women in the workforce and all this stuff I really could care less about. I work. I am in the workforce. Yes. I get paid. I need to know HOW to maximize my money, not be given a history lesson about how women have come a long way in the corporate world and anecdotes about her life and her friends lives. Granted there IS some good information in here, but if you're a young woman in your 20's or 30's and need straightforward and direct financial advice that relates to YOUR situation, pick up The Money Book for the Young, Fabulous and Broke instead of this one.

I bought this book with the intention of getting ideas to better control my personal finances and retirement planning. I have a financial background so some of the content was just too basic for me. However, I have tweaked my personal finances to become more inline with Suze's suggestions. I think this is a great book for my step daughters to read.

As a young college graduate with only student loans to repay, I did not find this book a helpful resource in planning my current budget. It DOES have great tips and information, but I feel it is geared more towards middle aged women who have never dealt with their finances before. In one instance, the author says that it is time for the reader to start looking at their credit card bill-- for someone who looks at their statement weekly online and pays in full, that is not a helpful tip. I gave it a three because I did not like the tone of the book, but I will include it in my collection. The last few chapters are helpful in learning bank terms and understandng the different savings plans available.

I found most of the advice to be very solid, but as I don't live in America, I am unable to use most of the specific advice unfortunately. However, that said, I will take on board some of her tips and advice.

The book is inspirational, yet some concepts of the book have been outdated. Would recommend a newer version of the book.

It wasn't quite what I expected. I really wanted advise about how to invest money. Less about saving money, ETC

I watched Suze on Oprah and felt she had something to offer so i bought 2 of her books and gave them to my wife.

I recommend that any husband serious about having a partner who complements their efforts in getting the family from a life of subsistence and consumption to financially independent to do the same.

An enlightened and empowered wife is the first step to a blissful life.

I passed this book on to someone who was more interested in finance than I. Suze Orman is a knowledgeable and practical finance guru.

This book is just ok. The advice in this book was a no brainer so nothing new to me. I have to say that the chapter on wills was helpful though.
