With honesty, empathy, and a dazzling knowledge of how money works, Suze Orman invites us into a realm where our lives and finances can prosper in harmony.

* Break debilitating patterns
* Protect finances when entering marriage or romantic partnerships
* Start over after divorce or death of a spouse
* Differentiate between good and bad debt
* Invest for the future
* Give generously, live richly
* Learn and teach the value of money

"Orman prods the fearful, the angry and the impoverished to dig deep into the pockets of their souls for spiritual and financial riches. [A] holistic approach...Orman offers sound advice on money market funds, IRAs, estate planning and financing big-ticket items such as homes and autos, but her most compelling advice hits us in the emotional pocketbook." (USA Today)

"The reigning shaman and high priestess of personal finance... The Courage to Be Rich is another blockbuster." (San Francisco Examiner)

This is a simple yet effective list of advise about money - however I got it after I had sorted out most of my financial problems - I am not sure how it would have been if I was in trouble - yet it's sound advice - though of course I don't follow all of it
