Review by Booklist Reviews

It is unfortunate that Orman, one of America's most authoritative money experts, whose voice is easily recognizable from her many PBS specials and long-running weekly CNBC show, does not read her latest book. Linari's rendition is serviceable: clearly enunciated, smartly delivered, well paced. But Linari never "owns" it as Orman would have had she read it, and her many fans will feel the disconnect. But anyone looking for solid financial guidance, custom-tailored to these recessionary times, will gain much from this recording. Grounding the book in her current mantra—"Stand in your truth"—Orman gives scrupulously thorough, commonsense advice on all aspects of managing money: renting or buying a home, securing a mortgage, handling unemployment, paying for college, saving for retirement, purchasing long-term-care insurance, and many other topics. The absence of Orman's singular voice notwithstanding, expect high demand. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.

Review by Library Journal Reviews

Best-selling author and television personality Orman's volume is so comprehensive it could be subtitled the New Personal/Family Finance Bible/Handbook/Encyclopedia. Orman ( presents critical primer-based information as well as detailed how-to steps for whatever financial topic she is covering (improving credit scores, college savings, personal investing, insurance, retirement, etc.). Her advice on teaching children (as young as three years old) how to understand and manage money is worth the price of the CD for all parents and grandparents. Narrator Nancy Linari holds the listener's attention with her engaging presentation. The single improvement of the audiobook for future reference would be the inclusion of a CD table of contents or printing on each CD the specific lesson title(s) covered. This audiobook is required listening for young adults building a retirement nest egg and highly recommended for all adults. [See Prepub Alert, LJ 10/1/10.—Ed.]—M.

Review by Publisher Summary 1

What does it take to create your New American Dream? Suze Orman, the woman millions of Americans have turned to for financial advice, says it’s time for a serious reconsideration of the American Dream—what promise it still holds, what aspects are in need of revision, and how it must be refashioned to fit our lives so that we can once again have faith that our hard work will pay off and that a secure and hopeful future is within our reach. In nine electrifying chapters, Orman delivers a master class on personal finance for this pivotal moment in time. She addresses every aspect of the American Dream—home, family, career, retirement. She teaches us that in order to create lasting security we must learn to stand in our truth. We must recognize, embrace, and be honest about what is real for us today and allow that understanding to inform the choices we make.  The New American Dream is not the things we accumulate, says Orman, but the confidence that comes from knowing that which we’ve worked so hard for cannot be taken away from us. In THE MONEY CLASS, Orman teaches us how to take control over our present—right here, right now—in order to build the future of our dreams.  Whether navigating the complicated mix of money and family, offering the most comprehensive retirement resource available today, or delivering a bracing dose of reality when it comes to recalibrating our expectations and our goals, Orman educates us with her signature no-nonsense approach and laser-like clarity. She empowers us to live a life of integrity and honesty that will create an enduring legacy for future generations—a New American Dream that lies in truth, security, financial freedom, and peace of mind.
