Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kris | 2/19/2014

    " I think this book would be really helpful if you hava a lot of credit card debt. We have no credit cards, so not very helpful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacqueline115 | 2/14/2014

    " Suze does a good job of covering major financial aspects such as how to get out of credit card debt, how to save up for college and how to do that, etc. Some parts didn't apply while others did. Even if one knows a lot about finances, it wouldn't hurt to review information. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christina | 2/13/2014

    " I got this a free download from Oprah and was able to quickly read it. While I think this book will help a lot of people, because of its Q&A format, there wasn't a lot in here applicable to our situation. I prefer Dave Ramsey for financial advice, although Suze is a solid choice. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Agogno | 2/5/2014

    " A quick little read, with questions/scenarios in bold face followed by straight to the point answers. It is as though Suzy is having a conversation with you. Includes a budget worksheet. I highlighted several of her suggestions for followup. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 2/3/2014

    " This is a very basic financial book but one that uplifts and doesn't overwhelm. This is the first I've read from Suze Orman and I think I will look into others she has written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 1/30/2014

    " Some helpful tips, but so much of it is aimed at those with kids, or those who were unwise with mortgages, or those who are retiring soon. Some good budget-planning suggestions and such; very short so very quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kerry | 1/30/2014

    " Wow! I downloaded the book from her website for free, and I read the majority of this book within about 6 hours. It's structured so that you can read what's immediately applicable to your personal situation and skim through what's not. I recommend this for everyone. Much of it's common sense, but she demystifies retirement and other investments accounts and underscores their importance, especially in times like this. Finally, she ends the book with a note of optimism. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Noelle (Pandora) Kukenas | 1/27/2014

    " Found most of her advice helpful, but tweaked some of it to be practical to my lifestyle. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sherry Kenyon | 1/11/2014

    " Interesting info that makes a lot of sense and works. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica Daly | 1/8/2014

    " I learned I have to go back to work. Otherwise, She is very specific about what you need to do to make yourself financially secrure through the rough economy. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Vickie T | 1/6/2014

    " In a nutshell--stop spending and build up savings, pay off credit cards, put money in your 401k and don't touch it. That's about it. Nothing new. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Book Him Danno | 12/18/2013

    " Good advice, but I heard most of it before. Always looking for something new to try to save more money. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Vonetta | 12/13/2013

    " Kiiiinda useless. Told me everything I already knew. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kylie Woolen | 12/9/2013

    " its not 2009 so i wasnt sure if this would still be relevant. fot the most part there are good tips in here "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carmen Micsa | 12/7/2013

    " It's an entry level book regarding financing, as she likes to speak for the masses. She also constantly repeats how you shouldn't touch your retirement accounts to pay off debt. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenny | 8/26/2013

    " Good common sense information. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori Grant | 8/6/2013

    " A should-read book on life management in self development for knowledge workers, managers, executives, and entrepreneurs. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rasa | 12/26/2012

    " This was a good, quick, interesting read. It reinforced things I already knew and has helped me to think more about what needs to be done to secure our finances for the future. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patricia | 7/7/2012

    " Suze is always good--I think I am doing what she recommends. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 12/12/2011

    " A quick read of money advice. It's mostly the obvious stuff like spend less, save more, but she gives more technical details. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tamara | 10/19/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen | 8/16/2011

    " Simply a must. This woman is fantastic. I wish she was a relative of mine so I could call her with questions. Her books are the next best thing I guess. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Noelle | 8/2/2011

    " Oprah let us download it for free a month or so ago so I did. I just browsed it... wouldn't say I read every word... But I like Suze's no-nonsense style and I trust her. Plus, I was interested in hearing what she had to say about buying a home in 2009. I think she'd approve us. I hope! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 7/10/2011

    " Good information divided into sections so it's easy to flip around and read up on what you need to know. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Denese | 4/1/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 3/21/2011

    " I love reading financial books and I thought Suse Orman's Action Plan for 2009 still applies to us today. I thought this was a very easy read even for the beginner investor or someone just starting out saving, spending, budgets, buying a home etc. etc. She covers every topic in this small book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristen | 3/11/2011

    " Our library branch has a rather sad selection of personal finance books. Shouldn't this be weeded? Skimmed through it anyway. Same old, same old advice. Never hurts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 3/5/2011

    " Wow! Learned so much from listening to her cd. I highly recommend this cd/book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Crystal | 2/26/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly | 2/2/2011

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Harper | 4/27/2010

    " Absolutely nothing new here. Same info as every other financial book. IMHO, an example of someone trying to cash in on your fears. Free pdf download otherwise I wouldn't have gotten it "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jodi | 4/22/2010

    " Why Suze Orman's scolding tone and frustrated attitude become tiresome, her advice is sound. I liked this book for what it was, a guide to understanding one's financial situation as effected by the down economy, and adjustments to make in redirection. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric | 3/7/2010

    " I'm kind of a personal finance book junkie and read this quickly to see if she had any good ideas. Pretty standard stuff, although she does recommend 8 months of expense in an emergency fund. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nick | 12/18/2009

    " don't bail on your 401k in a bad market, and spend less than you earn. "
