The Road to Wealth

Abridged Audiobook

Written By: Suze Orman

Narrated By: Suze Orman

Publisher: Random House (Audio)

Date: July 2001

Duration: 6 hours 8 minutes


Suze Orman's face and name are more prominent on the cover of her new money guide than its title, The Road to Wealth. And why not? Orman has parlayed her popular renown as both a New York Times bestselling author and video-age financial guru into an undeniable position of respect and trust when it comes to matters of dollars and sense. This time she presents an encyclopedic guide to the various components of one's overall financial life--from managing debt and owning a home to making investments and preparing to pass it all along--and she does so in the clear and confident style to which her fans have become accustomed. "Here is what you need to know," she writes at the outset. "Answers to the questions you have been asking, as well as the questions you should have been asking, delivered in the most complete, straightforward way I know." While the concise text moves logically from "creating a strong financial foundation to amassing assets and protecting them from common mistakes and periods of economic downturn," this is not meant to be read from cover to cover. Rather, it is a ready bookshelf reference for planning and sorting out common finance concerns, like how to calculate the mortgage payment you can best afford, determine what Medicare will pay toward nursing care, decide between retirement plan options, and similar matters of personal importance.

    Good book, but not as informative as her other books.

  • Jerndesza

    As an avid watcher of her TV show, I think this is a concise recap of most important financial topics

    The "Road to Wealth" should really be called "Basics of Personal Finance". Instead of covering areas of how to build wealth, Orman focuses answering basic questions about insurance, divorce settlements, home loans, etc. It really is a book that is more about the diferent areas in which to budget, but NOT about building wealth. I feel the title is very misleading.

    The audio is ok, but this information is best served as a good reference book instead. I thought the flow was ok, but the Q & A method that seems to never end, WAIT the Q&A's never did end. The information was relevant, but mostly on preparing yourself with a good base. She covers the basics-wills, estates, credit,debt,divorce.
