If you are tired of struggling to make ends meet but don't know a 401(k) from Special K, this book is for you. Aimed specifically at "Generation Broke"--those in their twenties and thirties who are working yet buried in credit card debt and student loans--this user-friendly guide offers a clear introduction to practical investing and money management techniques that can turn even a dismal financial situation around. Bestselling author Suze Orman has a knack for taking the fear out of money matters, and in The Money Book for the Young, Fabulous &: Broke, she shows readers how to set priorities and achieve goals, whether it is to buy a house or save for retirement or pay for a child's education. She also offers inspiration to readers to face their financial problems and get started on a solution. After all, there is good news: young people still have the time to correct problems so that they will never be broke again. Readers who find terms such as diversification and IRA rollover scary--or worse, unimportant--will learn much from this book.
In these pages, Orman clearly and succinctly explains what a FICO score is and why it's so important, offers the lowdown on stocks and mutual funds, provides career advice, and offers lots of tips on dealing with student loan debt, saving money even when times are tight, debt consolidation strategies, and the safest way for newlyweds to merge their finances. She also offers information on credit cards, including why canceling cards is not a good idea, when it makes sense to use them, and the best strategies for paying them off. It may not be the only money book you'll ever need, but it's an excellent place to start. --Shawn Carkonen

From Publishers Weekly
No narrator, no matter how skilled, could sell the advice of personal finance guru Orman as well as Orman herself, so it's fitting that she gives voice to this audiobook. In a tone that is commanding (but in a motherly way), Orman lays out money management basics for YF&Bers (the young, fabulous and broke), covering everything from maintaining good credit and investing in the future to building a career and buying a first house. This is the lecture every parent should give their adolescent, and with Orman's emphatic delivery, it certainly has a lecture-like feel. There's no danger of nodding off during this audiobook, however. Orman's just-the-facts approach and spirited reading make this a quick, informative listen—a perfect motivator for anyone who has thought about organizing their finances and then opted for the beach instead. Simultaneous release with the Riverhead hardcover (Forecasts, Feb. 14). (Mar.)

I think it's fair to say that getting money isn't the real battle that most of us encounter, correctly managing what we have and making it grow is the true battle. I have a real passion for financial literacy. EVERYONE should read this book no matter your financial literacy level. Suze breaks down various topics ranging from fico scores, credit debt, retirement accounts, mortgages, investments, and much more, in a every Simple, Easy, and Direct way. I can't think of a single stone she leaves untouched that's financially critical to know from the first day you turned 18.
Financial literacy is IMPORTANT. The financial decisions you make today are either going to help you or haunt you later in life. You owe it to yourself to make sound, informed decisions, and the topics that Suze covers are all things that we all encounter or hear about at some point in the early parts of our adult lives. If you haven't taken the financial plunge, wonderful, Suze's will help you navigate to achieve financial prosperity. If you've already sunk your ship, no worries, Suze lays out precises ways to rebuild and move forward.
What are you waiting for ?!? This book is one of the best investments you will ever make, PERIOD! It only costs a few bucks and you owe it to yourself to be financially successful and knowledgeable, so go get this book and read it NOW !! Don't thank me, I'm just paying it forward and you've been blessed with divine intervention. Best Wishes..
I grew up pretty clueless about finance and when I hit 18, I almost wrecked my credit. I don't have repossessions or foreclosures on my credit, but seeing the actual score was a wake up call and buying this book is one of the best things I ever did for myself.
I wasn't terribly familiar with Suze Orman and I dreaded reading a boring book full of dry prose but this book is a breath of fresh air! Orman's writing is upbeat and conversational in tone and you feel that she really knows her stuff and doesn't judge your for explaining things that may be common knowledge to others. The book is also VERY clearly organized and reads great from front to back or as a reference text that breaks down topics and questions into more bite sized portions when skimming through or for looking for a specific answer.
I wasn't sure how mortgages worked or what the difference was between a 401(k) and a Roth IRA, but now I know. I know how credit agencies calculate your credit score and I've learned that while shiny new cars are great, they are a depreciating asset and with this knowledge, I feel more confident about my purchasing judgement/self control and optimistic about my financial future and the new path I'm on.
This book is great for high school students who are embarking on their path as adults, for people trying to get a handle on their current financial situation or for people who have a general interest in economics and how our decisions, large and small, affect us in one way or another down the road.
A fantastic book that was a joy to read! I can't recommend it enough!
