The Billfold Book Club Has Chosen: Suze Orman’s ‘The Money Book For The Young, Fabulous, and Broke’

Suze Orman

For our next book, we will be reading Suze Orman’s The Money Book For The Young, Fabulous, and Broke.

(The next book after that will be Helaine Olen’s Pound Foolish, which specifically critiques Suze Orman’s financial advice.)

What’s The Money Book about? Let’s see what Orman’s publisher has to say:

The Money Book was written to address the specific financial reality that young people face today, and it 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 & broke readers precisely what actions to take and why.

When a book’s selling point is that it doesn’t contain any condescension, you know it’s going to be a fun read.

Be ready to discuss The Money Book For The Young, Fabulous, and Broke on Wednesday, June 25.

@siouxtse That is where I’m getting it too! Sad I can’t get an ebook version through my library.

“The Money Book For The Young, Fabulous, and Broke”

I am none of these but I’m in anyway. If you find a money book for the getting old-ish, somewhat kempt, and have a safety net barring major disaster – set, let me know.

@Stina I believe you’re looking for “The Number: A Completely Different Way To Think About The Rest Of Your Life” by Lee Eisenberg. ;)

@HelloTheFuture Ooh you’re good.

I impulse bought this from my college bookstore sr year, probably paid for it with a credit card or student loan money, so i’m ready for this.

I’m looking up Orman books at the library and am already regretting that we didn’t pick her newest book, which is apparently titled “The Money Class: How To Stand In Your Truth And Create The Future You Deserve.”


I’m probably going to read it as “supplementary material.” :)

@HelloTheFuture Sometimes I feel like other people are standing in my truth and I have to ask them politely to move.

@Josh Michtom@facebook I picture my truth as one of those little footbaths you use to wash your feet after playing in wet grass

I’m looking forward to this – you had me laughing hard with your RDPD recap

Also, suggest you put Wealthy Barber on your list for future book clubs

I just found this while browsing the thrift store today, so I guess I’m in! This is going to be interesting.
