Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

A companion to the bestseller The 9 Steps to Financial Freedom, Suze Orman's Financial Guidebook distills the most important points in 9 Steps, providing work sheets and self-assessment tests for each step that allow readers to take full inventory of their spending habits and attitudes toward money. Through probing questions and quizzes, Orman helps readers explore formative childhood experiences with money and understand how these influence their current financial anxieties. She also gives a crash course in wills, retirement plans and mutual funds, as well as guidance for getting out of debt.

Format: Paperback
Reading the Nine Steps To Financial Freedom is one thing, but using the workbook companion along with it makes implementing the steps much easier. For exaample, finding the root of your money issues that are based in childhood, with only the reading book, and without the workbook might be a bit difficult. Sure, there are example stories, but books like this were written for those of us who need a little hand holding when we're attempting to change our understanding of finances and how it all works.
I am not one to want extra books around that I don't love and use, and though I was lucky and found my own copy of this book used, and in pristine condition, had I known it existed before then, I would have ordered it with the reading book, it's that helpful. If you can follow directions, and be honest with yourself, with this book it would be very hard not to implement the Nine Steps in your life.

What this little book did for me was to take me back to when I formed my financial philosophy, eliminate negative false beliefs and form a better, more productive philosophy that actually works.

As a self proclaimed "artsy, spiritual, mushy" type, I absolutely hate left brained detail oriented personal budgets. However, my lack of attention to detail was reflected in my personal financial situation. This booked helped me to look at the details of my finances through a psychological framework that included specific exercises to walk me through those details that I dread. It helped me to get very clear on my financial motivations, dreams and blocks. I loved it!

This is a good companion to the 9 Steps book. If you really want to take your finances in hand, the two books are a great investment. If you are only going to buy one, buy the 9 Steps and skip the workbook.

This book changed my life.

I highly believe in Suze Orman's methods, but this book is out dated due to the crashing economy. She is great, but you need to look at her more recently published books as they have more current information n them

I knew my husband and I earned enough money that we should have savings and be able to pay our bills comfortably. But it wasn't happening! Suze's funny, no-nonsense approach to finance helped me learn in ways other personal finance books failed to do. She includes anecdotes and stories that illustrate every concept, and it helped us considerably just to know there are others in the exact same situation as us. I always thought our financial situation was so unique. Suze makes you take a long, hard, honest look at yourself and shows how to adjust your thought patterns and destructive spending to allow for more powerful organization of your financial goals. I'm already seeing results and feel a refreshing sense of relief that we weren't hopeless, and excitement that there are better things to come.

Format: Paperback
Suze Orman's Financial Guidebook: Put the 9 Steps to Work is intended to be a companion to her The 9 Steps to Financial Freedom, which I haven't read. However, she states in the preface that it is "a crash course" to that book, and can be read independently (p. v). It's really a workbook, and readers are supposed to complete all exercises before advancing to the next section. I didn't do that myself yet; I just wanted to plow through the book the first time, but I found it to have a lot of good advice, so I do plan to go back and work my way through the exercises. Like similar books, Ms. Orman discusses how you spend your money, how to get out of debt, and how to begin thinking about investing and retirement. She also discusses how you would start making a will or a revocable living trust, if you don't have one already, and how to think about life insurance. One of the chapters that I found most interesting had to do with being respectful of yourself and your money. Throughout the book she states a number of "laws." For example, the "Second Law of Financial Freedom" is "Power and Respect Attract Money, Powerlessness and Disrespect Repel Money" (p. 83). In this chapter she discusses spending, debt, and the shame associated with it. I believe that anyone who worked their way through this book would find themselves in much better financial shape than before.

Not only does this complement 9 Steps to Personal Freedom, more importantly, it shows how to utilize the techniques. It's almost like having Suze as your own personal coach.
