By Suze Orman
#5048 People in their 20s and 30s represent a generation has it tough, financially, and are aware of the urgent need to take matters into their own hands. This book was written to address the specific financial reality that faces young people today and offers a set of real, not impossible solutions to the problems at hand and the problems ahead.
Concisely, pragmatically, and without a whiff of condescension, Suze Orman tells her young, fabulous, and broke readers precisely what actions to take and why. Throughout these pages, there are icons that direct readers to a special YF&B domain on Suze’s website that offers more specialized information, forms, and interactive tools that further customize the information in the book.
Her advice at times bucks conventional wisdom (did she just say use your credit card?) and may even seem counter-intuitive (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 has made her the most trusted financial expert of her day.
Over the course of ten chapters that can be consulted methodically, step-by-step or on a strictly need-to-know basis, Suze takes the reader 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. 395 pages. Softcover. 2007.
