Best-selling author and financial expert Suze Orman helped millions of Americans turn toward their money and embark on a true path to wealth with her number one best seller, The 9 Steps to Financial Freedom, and her national best seller, You've Earned It, Don't Lose It. Now she returns, with a book that goes beyond the fundamentals of her earlier work in challenging and inspiring us to realize our full financial potential, and to realize as well that the bottom line of life is comprised of much more than money.
Practical, spiritual, and above all soundly financial, The Courage to Be Rich addresses the rites of passage we all must face - marriage, divorce, death; spending (and overspending) on life's necessities and luxuries; taking control of our financial tomorrows today. From the business of love to buying a home; from imparting proper values to our children to defining our own self-worth; from starting over to staking a claim to our future, Orman shows us how to find the clarity, conviction, and courage to meet the obstacles and opportunities of a lifetime.
Expressing her deep belief that only when we truly learn to value and respect money in the most expansive sense will we be able to change our financial destiny, Orman demonstrates - through exercises, examples and case studies - how to create a rich and abundant life, starting from what we have today. Finally, she takes on the seldom explored subject of money and grace - the rewards wealth bestows and the responsibilities if confers.
There is no more persuasive, compelling, and honest a financial teacher today than Suze Orman. Building on the rock-solid foundation of her earlier lessons, The Courage to Be Rich is, in every sense, higher education on matters of vital importance to us all.

Slow start but packed with tons of sound financial advice!
I didn’t like the book at the start. It’s was mundane, but I decided to stick it out. Eventually, Suze explains many hard to grasp financial topics. Even for me, an accountant with a finance background, I learned so many useful things and reinforced prior knowledge. I would recommend this book to anyone who would like to learn more about personal finance as a way to better themselves. Just beware that some of the information is outdated because of the age of the book.
