TITLE: Women & Money by Suze Orman; Spiegel & Grau

Synopchic: Money maven Suze Orman's latest book, Women & Money addresses the complicated (and often dysfunctional) relationship women have with personal finance. Orman's direct, non-condescending style is perfect for this subject matter--she begins with the premise that "Women can invest, save, and handle debt as well and skillfully as any man" Though her explanation of the "8 qualities of a wealthy woman" (harmony, balance, courage, etc.) is more inspirational than practical, she also presents a concrete five-month "save yourself plan" for financial repair, starting with setting aside checking and savings accounts, fixing one's credit rating, saving for retirement, setting up a will and purchasing home insurance. This encouraging guide will not intimidate women who are foundering financially. Suze Orman equips women with the financial knowledge and emotional awareness to overcome the blocks that have kept them from making more out of the money they have.

LPB FACTOR: With the looming economic crisis this book is a MUST for all women! From realizing your self-worth to overcoming debt Suze leaves no stones unturned in this eye-opening book. Not only does she teach you to repair your financial situation she gives you hope! Suze is a force to be reckon with and with this book in no time (5 months to be exact) you can too! Go out and splurge on this life changing tome...
