    Suze Orman, the woman millions of Americans have turned to for financial advice, says it’s time for a serious reconsideration of the American Dream—what promise it still holds, what aspects are in need of revision, and how it must be refashioned to fit our lives so that we can once again have faith that our hard work will pay off and that a secure and hopeful future is within our reach.

    Tracy L. Platz says: "Great Book, but I wish Suze was doing the reading"

    What made the experience of listening to The Money Class the most enjoyable?

    I have been a big fan of Suze's for years. I have listened to almost all of her books, sometimes over and over again and I watch her show on CNBC. I really liked this book, however, I wish Suze had narrated it herself like she has done for her previous books. The personal stories didn't have the same impact for me without Suze's voice behind them.

In Lean In, she urges women to take risks and seek new challenges, to find work that they love, and to remain passionately engaged with it at the highest levels throughout their lives.

    Story
    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book was exactly what I needed to hear at just the right time. I recently had my first child and at the very end of my maternity leave, my manager called me and told me that I had two days to complete the application for a Chief Engineer Development Program at my company. Something I had expressed a desire to do before I left on maternity leave.

    All of the topics in the book resonated for me because I am usually the one woman in the group of engineers. Luckily, I have never had a problem figuring out where the women's restroom is located and there is never a line!

    I sat in my home office in tears because I couldn't answer the question "Why do you want to be a Chief Engineer". The only thing that was going through my mind was that I was getting ready to leave my son for someone else to raise because I was headed back to work. All of the insecurities and worries that Sheryl discusses in her book about working mom's are true. I have experienced them first hand. And, I'm proud to say, my husband wiped away my tears, told me I could do anything, and made me finish my application. I have been in the program now for almost 6 months and it is a great leadership training program where I have been discussing the principles Sheryl discussed in her book.
