Have you read any of Suze Orman's Books?

I just read Suze Ormans book 'Women and Money". She makes a lot of good points on how to be financially sound and financially safe. Any thoughts on any of her books.

  • Haven't read her books but follow her on her show and absolutely love her "common sense" approach to money.

  • I haven't read any of her books, but I watch her show every Saturday night and I like her better than most financial advisors.

  • I have read several of her books. I liked them at first but she can be vague on what investments to get into. I now listen to a money show on the radio on Sunday mornings. It is on WTKK online 9AM-12 noon EST. I like it best when Susan Kaplan is on (almost every week). She is one of the top 100 financial advisors in the country.

  • She is good if you're not very financially saavy. I think much of what she says in her books is common sense, but maybe it needs to be said more than once for it to sink in.

  • Yeah I have. And honestly it really bothers me that her advice keeps changing.
    Personally I like Dave Ramsey a whole lot better. He's straight forward, and his advice doesn't change based on the economy or who's sponsoring him. It DOES change based on your individual circumstances though.

  • I like her, but I prefer Dave Ramsey.
