From Publishers Weekly
Orman's fifth major book has perfect timing. As many Americans grapple with unemployment, diminished 401(k)s, crumbling stock market holdings and seemingly insurmountable debt, the bright-eyed and bushy-tailed financial sage comes to the rescue, offering this guide to understanding some of the most basic principles of money. In her signature charismatic style, Orman (The 9 Steps to Financial Freedom; The Road to Wealth; etc.) lays out "simple truths that will help you to be okay no matter what happens in your financial life." These laws are essentially common sense standards, certainly reminiscent of phrases from the author's previous books yet still undeniably powerful. For example, law number one, "truth creates money, lies destroy it," rings with simplicity while teaching a mighty rule about staying true to oneself and not embellishing to disillusion oneself or others. Each law is described in a separate chapter, with examples from Orman's life and several everyday folk. Indeed, readers will see themselves in these stories, and they, coupled with Orman's reality-based financial advice, will help make solutions clear for many. A guide included in the book allows readers to reflect on their financial past, order their priorities, organize savings plans and more. This is a shining example of Orman's now-perfected holistic approach to nuts-and-bolts economics.

Suze explains why your ideas about money and in particular, your feelings regarding your personal experiences with money play a major role in what you do with money in the future.
A lot of people got wallopped in the stock market over the last three years. This is unfortunate as there are strategies that could have helped these people make omney while the markets went down. Back to the point of Suzes book, many people are now gun shy of the markets and afriad to invest. Big mistake!
The same is true with other areas of personal finance. Some have gone over their heads in credit cards debt and now look at anything plastic with a phobic-like reaction. Others have lost their homes in foreclosure and many have gone bankrupt. Too many others are living high while investing less and less. Contributions to 401 (k) savings plans has decreased and only in January of 2004 has investing in stock mutual funds started to rise.
Too many people are missing out on opportunity. Suze's book will help break that phobia and achieve the results you want.
Fans of 1,000 page boring and out-of-date financial books written by financial authors may not like this book by Suze but I have a question for you: how is the advice that you recieved from that magazine author working for you? I rest my case!
Suze may not be the greatest writer in the world but she is the best financial advisor/author right now. She is genuinely passionate about personal finance and not just trying to catch the wave of personal finance interest and jump on the bandwagon of Venita Van Caspel, Charles Givens, Terry Savage, or now Suze Orman like another personal finance author.
The Laws of Money is a great book that can and will make a significant differnce in your financial life.
Everytime Suze pumps out a new book she continues to surprise and impress me with her vast wealth of knowledge and easy writing sytle.
I bought The Laws of Money right along with The Automatic Millionaire, another great book.
Books by the financial savvy like Orman and Bach cannot be recommended highly enough. Be wary of financial books written by non financial people who are merely writers and have no real financial credentials to speak of.
