The Money Book for the Young, Fabulous, & Broke is financial expert Suze Orman's answer to a generation's cry for help.

Publisher's Summary

The Money Book for the Young, Fabulous, & Broke is financial expert Suze Orman's answer to a generation's cry for help. They're called "Generation Debt", people in their 20s and 30s who graduate from college with a mountain of student loan debt and are stuck with one of the weakest job markets in recent history, yet they're painfully aware of the urgent need to take matters into their own hands.

The Money Book was written to address the specific financial reality that young people face today. Suze Orman tells her young, fabulous, and broke listeners precisely what actions to take and why. Her advice at times bucks conventional wisdom (Did she just say use your credit card?) and may even seem counterintuitive (Pay into a retirement fund even though your credit card debt is killing you?), but it's her honesty, understanding, and uncanny ability to anticipate the needs of her readers that have made her the most trusted financial expert of the day.

Suze takes listeners past broke, to a secure place where they'll never have to worry about revisiting broke again. And she begins the journey with a bit of overwhelmingly good news (yes, there really is good news): Young people have the greatest asset of all on their side - time.

    "Much needed for my generation"

    I've seen Suze talk about the book and read the printed version already (i wouldn't be surprised if the negative review above was by someone who hadn't even read or listened to the book), and it has been an immense help. I'm part of that group that has been living in the now and staying ignorant of the price of that, and this book is direct, helpful, and very insightful. She breaks it down in ways that make it digestable and doable, and she explains why some financial myths just don't make sense.

    I would recommend it to anyone who lives paycheck to paycheck but doesn't think they're 'broke'.

    "a good primer"

    Of course, all of the advice here can be found elsewhere and probably for free. What makes this book worth it is the straight forward and simple delivery. Suze Orman doesn't just give out financial advice, she talks about life in bigger terms and asks readers to really analyze themselves-- their financial personality-- and to question their goals and priorities in life. For someone in their twenties-early thirties, this book is GREAT. A quick read, easy to digest. It gets you thinking not just about your money, but about where you're going in life and how you're getting there.

    "Fabulous"

    I just recently bought this book after frankly hating suze orman for years. She seemed too positive and energetic for me. I got stuck watching her on late night television and was soon hooked. She has a way of making money seem like its the easiest thing in the world to handle. Every suggestion she makes she backs up with an easy to understand example. Even after watching her at least once a week there were mistakes I was making that she pointed out in the book, so I really think its a book for everyone, no matter how on top of your finances you may be.

    "Valid advice as always"

    If the young people all bought this book and took the author's advice, we would not have very many bankruptcies in the future. There is no real-life education in our schools. Someone had to tell our young people that bling, bling on credit is not what's cool (or phat). Great book.

    "Young, Fabulous, and Broke by Suze Orman"

    A great self-help book. The narration by Suze made it an easy listen. Also it's a good book to read for those who have no clue what a "FICO" score is.

    "Great advice at any age"

    Whether you're a single young professional trying to make sense of your company's 401K plan, or a new parent shopping for a car and looking for a new home, this book can help.

    Thanks to this text I've been able to jumpstart my long-term savings, and navigate the nebulous financial vocabulary and procedure that would have prevented me from doing so otherwise.

    I find myself giving advice to others (mostly much older folks) on mutual funds, credit ratings, and identity theft problems all thanks to the few hours I put into listening to Suze's book.

    5 stars!

    "Amazing book, great introduction."

    I am 23 now and this book was excellent for me. It gives a solid advice on credit, investing, savings, and more. Also, the information really is aimed at people in early stages of their adult lives.

    The rate of presentation is excellent. It is jam packed with advice but I didn't feel overwhelmed. I do wish I had a notebook while I was listening to jot down important points, but I was in a car. Nonetheless, I retained many of the concepts from just listening once. I will listen again.

    Suze Orman is a charming reader and the book is very listenable. I am so glad I found this one; the knowledge will have a big impact on my life.

    "A Breath of Financial-Fresh Air"

    There are many financial Gurus in the world today, but as far as I have found, only one with a comprehensive program tailored to help "The Young, Fabulous and Broke".
    It's so very important that the Thirty-Somethings get sound financial
    direction and for me, "The Money Book For The Young Fabulous,& Broke" is exactly that , sound financial direction. Thank you Suze Orman!
