Reader Review: Very good, basic money advice, but it states the obvious for people who manage their budgets and credit card even slightly. Still good reminders of what to be aware of when making decisions about your money, credit interest, and investments. Easy read, and recommended.
Times have changed and the rules have changed, but financial security is still the goal. Do you know how to get there?
There is a new reality out there—a new normal. What was once certain—that you would be able to retire comfortably, that you would pay for your kids’ education, that your home would appreciate in value—is no longer a sure thing. So much has changed on the financial landscape that it’s hard to know which moves are the right ones to make. Suze Orman’s million-copy bestselling financial action plan—fully revised and updated for 2010 and beyond—will show you the way.
NEW TIMES CALL FOR NEW RULES—AND THIS IS WHAT SUZE ORMAN’S ACTION PLAN DELIVERS:
• up-to-date information on new legislation that could affect how you will achieve your financial goals
• an explanation of new FICO practices, and a new strategy for dealing with credit card debt
• sound advice about rebuidling your retirement plan, and what to do if you’re already retired
• guidance on how to live within your means, and strategies to keep you on the path to achieving your goals in this new age of financial honesty
PLUS AN ALL-NEW CHAPTER ON KIDS AND MONEY—how to give your kids a solid financial education, no matter their age!

Suze Orman's Action Plan
All Eyes on the Road Ahead
Exhale. The eye of the financial hurricane has passed. The storm that hit in the summer of 2008 and continued to batter the global economy and your personal finances through 2009 is slowly—ever so slowly—receding. The worst is over. You survived. We survived.
Now comes the really hard work: rebuilding.
IRAs, 401(k)s and 529 college savings plans must be rebuilt in the wake of the devastating bear market.
Budgets have to be put in place that account for the new world order in which the penalties for having credit card debt and no emergency savings are unthinkable. You know as well as I do: You must find a way to get rid of the debt and build your savings.
Your approach to homeownership must be rebuilt to reflect this simple truth: A home is not a liquid investment that will always rise in value. It is shelter, first and foremost. It can also be a terrific asset, but only if you approach it with clear-eyed expectations.
Most important, your sense of security must be rebuilt. There’s the not so small issue of our collective national bill for what has happened; the current $1.4 trillion federal deficit is expected to rise to $9 trillion by 2019. But on a more personal note you are grappling with the realization that your pre-crash way of life is over. What worked—or more correctly, what you thought worked—is gone, leaving you without your bearings in these new times.
Now that we have weathered the worst of the storm, you’re onto the next challenge: Where do we go from here?
