Economics Class Book Review,
This review is from: Suze Orman's Action Plan: New Rules for New Times (Mass Market Paperback)
Suze Orman's Action Plan
New Rules For New Times
I purchased Suze Orman's Action Plan New Rules for New Times book and read it rather quickly. It is a small paperback book and it is one you'll have trouble putting down once you start reading. The book's opening line of "I bet you are scared, angry too and confused." probably describes most of America.
Before reading this book, I felt I had a pretty good understanding of the current financial crisis and why it happened. It turns out I didn't understand it completely. After reading the 10 pages in Chapter 2: A Brief History of How We Got Here - I really get it now. Suze has the ability to explain years of history in a clear, concise manner. I am 100% certain my understanding is going to allow me to make better financial decisions in the future.
I feel this book is a "must read" for everyone, whether you are young or old, having credit card debt or not owning a house or having recently had to let one go of sizeable savings, 401k's, investments and such or little or having a secure job or are now unemployed, and so on. The reality is that you HAVE TO HAVE A PLAN. This book is going to give you one. If you sit back and try and wait this financial storm out without a rock solid plan or continue to procrastinate even a little longer about making important financial decisions, your financial security is at risk. I believe that after you read this book, you'll feel like I do. You'll be inspired to take action and these actions will allow you to reach your long-term goals. Knowing that we are in for some tough times ahead and having a plan is going to be key.
