Book Review: The Money Book for the Young, Fabulous & Broke by Suze Orman

Financial well-being, while extremely important to a successful and happy life, is not taught in schools and often not talked about at home as well. So is it no wonder then that Generation-Y is leaving college knee-deep in debt and thousands of first-time home-buyers are having their homes foreclosed on after failing to meet their sky-rocketing mortgage payments?

Financial guru and Oprah regular, Suze Orman, does an excellent job of outlining solid, practical advice on everything from getting a credit card to opening a 401K in her book, The Money Book for the Young, Fabulous & Broke. She offers information and real-life examples on how to manage the following:

  • Credit scores
  • Budgeting
  • Job hunting
  • Using credit wisely
  • Retirement plans
  • Investing
  • Buying a car
  • Buying a home
  • Merging finances

This book is a must read for anyone just entering the “real-world” or for those who’d like to get a better handle on their finances.
