Best selling author and financial expert Suze Orman helped millions of Americans turn toward their money and embark on a true path to wealth with her #1 best seller The 9 Steps to Financial Freedom and her national best seller You've Earned It, Don't Lose It. Now she returns, with a book that goes beyond the fundamentals of her earlier work in challenging and inspiring us to realize our full financial potential, and to realize as well that the bottom line of life is comprised of much more than money.
Practical, spiritual, and above all soundly financial, The Courage to Be Rich addresses the rites of passage we all must face - marriage, divorce, death; spending (and overspending) on life's necessities and luxuries; taking control of our financial tomorrows today. From the business of love to buying a home; from imparting proper values to our children to defining our own self-worth; from starting over to staking a claim to our future, Orman shows us how to find the clarity, conviction, and courage to meet the obstacles and opportunities of a lifetime.
Expressing her deep belief that only when we truly learn to value and respect money in the most expansive sense will we be able to change our financial destiny, Orman demonstrates - through exercises, examples, and case studies - how to create a rich and abundant life, starting from what we have today. Finally, she takes on the seldom explored subject of money and grace - the rewards wealth bestows and the responsibilities it confers. Download and start listening now!

    " Evidently I don't love my money enough. And I need a Roth IRA. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Missy | 2/15/2014

    " An important book to help focus one's thoughts about money - how you look at it, value it, what you let it do to and for you, or not. It suggests one confront every thought and emotion related to money and figure out from whence it came - and if those thoughts need changing, it offers some direction. The specifics are great, too - Suze goes over the details of mortgages, IRAs, bonds, annuities... She makes accessible some complicated or else overwhelming ideas, especially if you are new to them. I imagine most young adults would get some benefit from reading this or a book of similar nature. I want to explore a couple more of hers; I imagine they get derivative at some point, but she's said enough good stuff here (and on her show, which is great) to keep the intrigue going. "

    " "Be careful of.. What you THINK, it will be What you SAY, it will be What you DO, it will be your ACTIONS, it will be your HABITS and it will eventually be your DESTINY." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Voracious_reader | 2/2/2014

    " Concerns emotional spending. Attempts to convince people to prioritize and to come to terms with bad spending/saving habits. Good for someone who is curious about the world of personal finance but is just getting started with reading finance books, or, for example, someone who has had money problems and is looking for a light at the end of the tunnel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy Allen | 1/26/2014

    " Another shot of Suze for the times when saving or resisting an expense feel like a drag. It takes courage to take responsibility for the financial side of life... and I for one appreciate the support we get from Suze. "
