Great for an American Audience
Loads of useful 401k and employment law info that is completely irrelevant to any audience outside of the U.K.
Only a few take Aways from this book for me.

If you like FAQ's, you'll love this!!
The content is generally very good, but the format is "question and answer." This book reads like a FAQ (read aloud), rather than a systematic development of wealth-building strategies. The print version would be easier to navigate, in that one could go directly to the subject of interest and see if their question was already asked/answered by Orman. If not, you're out of luck! Even the print version would only serve most readers as a look-up reference, rather than a "study cover-to-cover" type of financial book. If anyone else had written this book, one star would have been generous. However, Orman's insights are valuable, if not mainstream.

great all around financial advice
Suze Orman covers a bunch of areas in this book. While for some it might be hard to listen to some of the minutiae that is a part of good financial planning, Suze does a good job of entertaining while informing. Get it. It's worth the reading.

OK I guess
If you don't know anything this book would be usefull, but I got bored with it. I wouldn't say it's useless because it did have bits of info at places. Don't read if you are sleepy!
