Suze Orman's face and name are more prominent on the cover of her new money guide than its title, The Road to Wealth. And why not? Orman has parlayed her popular renown as both a New York Times bestselling author and video-age financial guru into an undeniable position of respect and trust when it comes to matters of dollars and sense. This time she presents an encyclopedic guide to the various components of one's overall financial life--from managing debt and owning a home to making investments and preparing to pass it all along--and she does so in the clear and confident style to which her fans have become accustomed. "Here is what you need to know," she writes at the outset. "Answers to the questions you have been asking, as well as the questions you should have been asking, delivered in the most complete, straightforward way I know." While the concise text moves logically from "creating a strong financial foundation to amassing assets and protecting them from common mistakes and periods of economic downturn," this is not meant to be read from cover to cover. Rather, it is a ready bookshelf reference for planning and sorting out common finance concerns, like how to calculate the mortgage payment you can best afford, determine what Medicare will pay toward nursing care, decide between retirement plan options, and similar matters of personal importance. --Howard Rothman --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

As a lot of the discussion is in brief question and answer format, this is a great book also for all kinds of readers. You can go directly to a specific question and answer, so it is not as daunting.
It is very fulfilling to actually understand my personal finances in a fun and entertaining way, since I have always disliked economics. If you are a person that wants to LEARN AND APPLY all the steps there are to become debt free, then this book is for you. This is a very good reference book to have in your library. Suze Orman answers all the questions there are about personal finances. I still haven't finished reading it (it has 11 chapters and almost 600 pages!), but it has been worth my time.
The only oops is that it was written in 2009... Some numbers do not apply/ has been changed for 2015- 2016.. but you can easily find those online. The principles stay the same.
I find Orman's simple Socratic question-answer style to be a surprisingly useful tool for learning this otherwise overwhelming subject matter, and it lends to either casual bathroom browsing or more serious notetaking, and I've done both. After having read most of it, I feel less out of my element when hearing about P/E ratios or index funds, and some people think my throwing around such terms in everyday conversation makes me sound quite smart. There is a footnote, however, which took with it to the bottom of the page the fifth star, leaving just four: if this book ends up being my road to wealth, I suspect I'll barely make it out of the driveway. I will not likely build a stellar portfolio tomorrow, but I honestly didn't think I would. Orman intended this to be a primer, something with which to get your feet wet. You'll never find a book that has all the answers, and this one surely attests to that. But it's great nonetheless and I recommend it highly to the would-be wealthy who so far don't know an annuity from an alligator. Happy trails!
