Or rather, her new REVISED book I should say: The 9 Steps to Financial Freedom. If you’re a fan of good financial management, or of the popular guru Suze Orman, this is the book for you. (Even if she did ruffle some feathers the other month in blog land… ;))
I just got my own copy in the mail so haven’t had a chance to peruse it yet, but considering she sold over 3 million copies of the original one, I’m pretty sure this one will be just as helpful – if not more now. Here’s what’s posted on Amazon about it:
With a new preface that reflects personal finance today, New York Times bestselling author and leading financial expert Suze Orman shares a refreshed version of The 9 Steps to Financial Freedom, the revolutionary, groundbreaking classic that changed the way we think, feel, and act about money. Unlike traditional money management books, 9 Steps approaches money from an emotional and spiritual point of view, emphasizing that fear, shame, and anger are the main obstacles to wealth.
Now, in these turbulent economic times, Suze’s life-changing message from fifteen years ago is more important than ever. This reissued version of shows you:
- That debt is bondage and how best to break free of it
- Why the less you have, the more you need a revocable living trust
- How to find the best financial adviser (look in the mirror!)
- How to avoid being taken advantage of when buying life insurance
- Which retirement accounts make sense and which do not
In nine simple steps, you’ll learn all you need to know to be responsible with and respectful of the money you have and the money you don’t have. Embrace Suze’s groundbreaking philosophy—that you are worth more than your money—and understand the true meaning of wealth so you can live a life without regrets. If you do not have control over the money in your life right now, Suze’s nine steps to financial freedom are for you.
