Book Review: Suze Orman’s The Ultimate Retirement Guide for 50+

Suze Orman is my favorite personal finance expert. Unlike most people my age, I used to watch The Suze Orman Show every Saturday night during most of its 13-year run on CNBC. I even met Suze at a book signing in New York when The Money Class came out in 2011, which was her last book. When Suze turned 65, she decided to stop her CNBC show and retire from the public spotlight. Suze and her wife sold their homes, moved to a small island, and they went fishing. That’s not a joke. Suze and her wife, KT, go fishing all the time. Suze even won several fishing trophies because she’s so good at it. So, why did Suze turn away from all this fame? She decided to find out who Suze Orman is when she’s not busy being Suze Orman. It’s an important lesson for all of us to consider. When we retire and step away from whatever it is we’re known for, are we happy? I’m glad to report that Suze is happy. However, she saw this revelation as an opportunity to write a book solely focused on retirement for those that are 50 and older. After all, when she was a financial advisor retirement was her speciality. Having read this book, I can confidently say that it’s Suze greatest book to date and her passion and knowledge radiate off of every page. It’s absolutely the best book I’ve ever read on personal finance.

10 Books That Touched Me

open-book-on-top-of-pile-of-booksMy friend Dawnna tagged me in a Facebook post where she listed 10 books that stayed with her for one reason or another. The goal is simply writing down 10 books that touched you without listing them in any particular order or over analyzing what should or shouldn’t be included. Then, you have to tag five friends and ask them to do the same. Since I thought this was a cool idea, I’m turning my list into a blog post. Please feel free to list your “10 Books That Touched You” in the comments section below.
