What I'm reading . . .
Suze Orman has many devout followers of her approach to handling finances, including talk show host Oprah Winfrey. In this book, Orman covers the basics, such as the importance of paying off all credit card debt as soon as possible. Different retirement funds are also discussed. Orman even addresses the psychological aspects of money and spending. She asks readers to try and recall their earliest experiences with money, believing that many childhood experiences can negatively affect how people handle money as adults. She says that many people still associate shame and guilt with money without realizing it. Those seeking specific advice on a widely diverse set of personal finance topics may need to look elsewhere for supplemental information.
