Suze Orman Book Signing

So on friday, I went to see Suze Orman at a book signing/talk in boston. I had a great time and it was fun to meet Suze in person. Her book about women and money seemed to resonate with quite a few people in the audience; my mom is a big fan of Suze and has really started getting her finances in order as a result of reading Suze's books and watching her show.

It appears that Suze has changed her mind at this book in that she now believes that there are some fundamentally different things about how men and women handle money. I find this concept interesting but not *always* true.

I like many of the ideas in her new book though and I think that men and women could both often benefit from the advice Suze gives when it comes to money. And the concepts in this book are really no exception, in my opinion. Sure, most guys are probably not as "touchy-feely" and emotional about money as women are. But that doesn't mean that some of the same concepts cannot be applied.

One concept that Suze discusses is the idea of putting yourself "on sale". That is, by not making sure you are getting what you are worth, you really hurt yourself in the long run. I personally have experienced this, even though I am a man. Therefore, if you like Suze Orman, it might be worth giving her new book a read. You might find that there is something in there, even for men.
