From creating a strong, debt-free foundation to amassing assets and protecting them in periods of economic downturn; from buying a home to providing for loved ones; from investing with confidence and navigating the markets in good times and bad to securing reliable income for our later years, The Road to Wealth offers invaluable insight and information wherever we are in our lives, whatever our needs, whatever the economic climate.

"[The Road to Wealth] ought to be essential listening for anyone who is serious about life and wants to manage money better." (AudioFile)
The content is generally very good, but the format is "question and answer." This book reads like a FAQ (read aloud), rather than a systematic development of wealth-building strategies. The print version would be easier to navigate, in that one could go directly to the subject of interest and see if their question was already asked/answered by Orman. If not, you're out of luck! Even the print version would only serve most readers as a look-up reference, rather than a "study cover-to-cover" type of financial book. If anyone else had written this book, one star would have been generous. However, Orman's insights are valuable, if not mainstream.
If you don't know anything this book would be usefull, but I got bored with it. I wouldn't say it's useless because it did have bits of info at places. Don't read if you are sleepy!
Suze Orman covers a bunch of areas in this book. While for some it might be hard to listen to some of the minutiae that is a part of good financial planning, Suze does a good job of entertaining while informing. Get it. It's worth the reading.
"Great for an American Audience"
Loads of useful 401k and employment law info that is completely irrelevant to any audience outside of the U.K.
Only a few take Aways from this book for me.
