Knowledge and thoughtfulness underlie this five-step lesson from the veteran financial author: Get your banking and spending under control, get your credit cards and credit rating in shape, invest for retirement, organize your financial records, and protect yourself and your belongings with insurance. Orman’s advice is immensely practical because she uses concrete images like paper money, bank statements, and file boxes, instead of abstractions and convoluted strategies. Less urgent and emotionally wired than on her TV show, Orman sounds authoritative and reassuring. Buying the audio allows admission to her Web site, which has resources to help listeners complete the plan. This is an activist approach that doesn’t overlook the internal reasons that some women overspend or stay blind to their long-term financial security.
