I saw her on a video make an insightful comment and mistakenly thought she knew something. Stick to Suze Orman.
First, this book should include more clearly in their description how this book only works for people in the States. I, being in a foreign country, does not deal with the same tax or insurance issues. Most of the chapters were just useless to me.
Second, what she writes in this book is really very very very basic. If you have worked a few years, and have heard about finance lessons/stories from friends or family, you probably already know all that's been in the book.
The best part is that it does not read like a finance text, instead, Torabi uses practical, everyday examples instead of esoteric terminology or useless analogies.
The book reminds me of the old adage, "Some people learn from their mistakes, smart people learn from other peoples mistakes." Read the book to get some financial wisdom instead of having to make your own mistakes. It is the perfect gift for any young person you know.
I saw Farnoosh speak recently and I loved her message. I like how she doesn't talk down to her audience, and from that standpoint, her book measured up nicely. She's not condescending and she comes across as very likeable in her book.
But there was too much focus on wardrobe, beauty, and things that a guy might find totally irrelevant. I was able to take her advice and apply it to my life but that became more and more of a stretch as the book progressed.
I think Farnoosh sells herself short by speaking predominantly to her female audience when males like me would love to learn more from her about personal finance issues that effect men and women equally! I do like that she bashed Suze orman a little bit. I watch Suze but I agree with Farnoosh that Suze can bash her audience into submission and there's probably a better way!
Also, REAL MONEY ANSWERS, FOR EVERY WOMAN BY PATRICE WASHINGTON is excellent.
