WHAT WILL YOU LEARN IN THE MONEY CLASS?
How to find the courage to stand in your truth and why it is a place of power.
What daily actions will restore the word “hope” to your vocabulary.
Everything you need to know about taking care of your family, your home, your career, and planning for retirement—no matter where you are in your life or where the economy is heading.
In nine electrifying, empowering classes, Suze Orman teaches us how to navigate these unprecedented financial times. With her trademark directness, she shows us how to tackle the complicated mix of money and family, how to avoid making costly mistakes in real estate, and how to get traction in your career or rebuild after a professional setback. And in what is the most comprehensive retirement resource available today, Suze presents an attainable strategy, for every reader, at every age.
The Money Class is filled with tools and advice that can take you from a place of financial fear to a place of financial security. In The Money Class you will learn what you need to know in order to feel hopeful, once again, about your future.
With a clarion call to "stand in your truth," Orman (The Money Book for the Young, Fabulous & Broke) re-engineers much of the advice given in her previous works for her latest volume. Chock full of financial advice pertinent to the post-2008 economic landscape, the book addresses every age and stage of life. Organized into nine "classes," with each class/chapter further divided into related lessons, Orman's effort is characteristically upbeat and no-nonsense, offering lessons on family matters, homeownership, saving for college, emergencies, retirement, and more. Orman firmly guides readers when dealing with parenting issues or underwater mortgages. Orman declares herself "vehemently anti-allowance," opting instead for paying children to do household chores, and she explains how to implement such a policy. A class on careers gives honest advice for anyone facing continued unemployment or thinking of taking a lower paying position. And three of her classes focus on financial planning for the future and how readers as young as 20 can begin saving for retirement. After finishing Orman's book, and completing her exercises, readers will have a very clear sense of how they can achieve what she has rechristened the "New American Dream."

I wish this book had been available years ago. I could have taught my children better money management. This is the financial planner that I have never been able to afford.
Some of this is good, but some is BS.
Like a lot of what she preaches on her show, some of the things she says is dead on. But a few of the things that she has dribble out of her mouth is complete BS. Her disgust with some financial products is unfounded and just wrong. If you make less than 40k a year then she may be the person you should go to for your financial advice. But if you make a decent living go find someone else to follow. Or better yet find a reputable CPA and a good financial advisor.
Suze has motivated me to think about a great future. One that will not be simple, but will lead my family, into a better financial place. This book gives a step-by-step way of becoming financially prepared for the road ahead.
