Suze Orman has transformed the concept of personal finance for millions by teaching us how to gain control of our money—so that money does not control us. She goes beyond the nuts and bolts of managing money to explore the psychological, even spiritual power money has in our lives. The 9 Steps to Financial Freedom is the first personal finance book that gives you not only the knowledge of how to handle money, but also the will to break through all the barriers that hold you back.

Combining real-life recommendations with the motivation to overcome financial anxieties, Suze Orman offers the keys to providing for yourself and your family, including:

  • seeing how your past holds the key to your financial future
  • facing your fears and creating new truths
  • trusting yourself more than you trust others
  • being open to receiving all that you are meant to have
  • understanding the lessons of the money cycle

The 9 Steps to Financial Freedom is useful advice and inspiration from the leading voice in personal finance. As Orman shows, managing money is far more than a matter of balancing your checkbook or picking the right investments. It's about redefining financial freedom—and realizing that you are worth far more than your money.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erinina Marie | 2/16/2014

    " This book is fabulous for someone with little knowledge of how to plan for their financial future and acknowledge their financial present. Despite moments of 'new-age' spiritual mantras and a few moments of over zealous conservatism, I found this book incredibly helpful in taking control of my financial life in the way that was right for me. It is best with the workbook. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Wendy | 2/16/2014

    " This woman gets paid to recommend financial products. She also gives bad advice as a talking head ("sell,sell..." during the latest crises). Her books are somewhat pedantic and superficial. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Randrussell | 1/22/2014

    " a good general overview of financial information to include stuff about tradional/roth ira's, wills, trusts etc. also, a good reference guide. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kira | 1/18/2014

    " I skimmed sections I thought might be useful to me. As always Suze terrifies me into thikning I have to work until I am 100, and need to get a second and third job, but there were some useful tips in here. I would probably read more of it, but had to return it to the library. Might check it out again in the future. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Corinne | 1/17/2014

    " People first, then money, then things. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristin | 1/15/2014

    " I've had this for years and never read it. I started it, it's a little corny at times, but at other times it's informative. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Therese | 1/13/2014

    " Another life-changing book regarding my finances... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 1/8/2014

    " I am not a reader of self help or financial books, so I don't have anything to compare this book to. But, what impressed me about this book is that from the outset, the reader is asked to reflect on and recognize the triggers for emotional spending (for me, this was very eye opening indeed). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 12/26/2013

    " How I began to get myself out of debt beginning from an emotional point of view. This should be the first book to read out of all the Suze Orman series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Betsy | 12/24/2013

    " brushing up to see if there is something I can learn! "

    " I am still a broke-ass motherfucker. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sundae | 12/10/2013

    " Eh... It's a repeat of all her books. Good book after reading her older 2009 version of 9 steps of financial freedom for the information to "sink in" but overall, it's a repeat of everything in all her other books. Don't bother. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 12/5/2013

    " Orman does a good job of giving advice on many of the steps needed to get your financial house in order. I like that she doesn't concentrate only on the "getting out of debt" stuff and really goes into detail about health proxies, insurance, etc... A good all around introduction. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Santos | 11/23/2013

    " I think everyone who wants to know more about how to best handle their money should read this book. Gave me some simple, practical suggestions that were easy to implement in my life. "

    " I thought that this was a very good book to introduce people to personal finance. It was very good and practical. I enjoyed her spiritual views on personal finance. She also advocates revocable living trusts which my estate planning professor would love. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lyda | 8/5/2012

    " Really Really helpful for those who need financial security explained to them like a 5 year old. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cheri | 4/2/2012

    " I liked the title - the advice is pretty standard once again. Read only if you know nothing about personal finance. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Yosafbridg | 2/8/2012

    " Orman definitely knows what she is talking about and of all the finicial gurus she is the one i trust the most and i also consider her the most readable. Go Suze! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 David | 1/18/2012

    " coulda, woulda, shoulda....that's what this book made me think...I do try and practice some of the principals written in this book, but it seems like her suggestions are a lot easier to follow if you already HAVE money!!! :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elise | 11/20/2011

    " She had some forms to fill out in this book that were great! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 7/9/2011

    " I am a fan of her show, and like the premise of her book. Her steps aren't brain surgery, but somehow reading it in black and white and "hearing" it from a different mouth encourages you to take action. "

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

    " I have read this book three times over the last four years. Each time I find something that relates to me at that moment. The practical advice is priceless! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gayle | 4/23/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Naomi | 9/17/2010

    " A bit repetative to all the other Suze Orman books I have read(and I did read them all). I am not a big person when it comes to putting money with "spiritual" self, so I did have a bit of a difficult time with this one where I don't normally have that issue with her books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Courtney | 6/10/2010

    " Who doesn't just love Suze Orman? She is great. I learned a lot. She made things that seemed difficult, east to understand. I will always be glad I read this book, even if I dont use all of the information, it was very educational. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Therese | 3/12/2010

    " Another life-changing book regarding my finances... "
