#1 New York Times bestselling author and financial expert Suze Orman helped millions of Americans change the course of their financial destiny and prosper in every way with The Courage to Be Rich . Now, Suze has revised and updated this million-copy bestseller to further inspire readers to find the courage to start over in these changing times and realize their true potential for material and spiritual wealthmdash;even in today's challenging economic climate.

Now available in trade paperback for the first time, this edition goes beyond Suze's earlier work in outlining a life-changing process for manifesting abundance and brings her revolutionary ideas of combining the spiritual and the financial up to date. With honesty, empathy, and a dazzling knowledge of how the world of money works, the country's most trusted financial expert motivates readers to summon the courage to cope with tragedymdash;whether it's personal or globalmdash;along with its economic aftermath. Rich in spirit, The Courage to Be Rich also reveals how a sagging economy may influence the money readers havemdash;and have yet to makemdash;and what they need to do to safeguard their financial future without sacrificing their generosity.

With new information that pertains to recent changes in tax laws and how they affect IRAs, The Courage to Be Rich addresses the financial issues and milestones we face throughout our livesmdash;marriage, divorce, and death; buying a home; and spending (and overspending) on life's necessities and luxuries. Suze shows readers how to take control of their financial tomorrows today with her trademark expertise and compassion, and convinces us that we can alter our financial destinies only when our intentions are in harmony our actions. That process begins with overcoming and forgiving feelings of fearmdash;an emotion that acts as an internal obstacle to wealth. Suze explains how to make room for more money by eliminating all the cluttermdash;thoughts, words, actions, and material objectsmdash;blocking its path. This newfound clarity will empower readers to start afresh to create the true wealth they want and deserve.

In The Courage to Be Rich , Suze urges readers to live beyond the bottom line by passing money through their hearts and hands out into the world, to make it a better place. She demonstrates how every action taken is an offering to the world that repays in kind, and how charity has the power to enhance every life. Best of all, she explains how to determine when one is giving too much and when one is giving too little.

Combining practical strategies, personal exercises, compelling case studies, and her trademark provocative insights, Suze guides readers through the financial rites of passage, detailing how to:

Find the courage to endure financial setbacks and overcome feelings of shame, fear, or anger about money Keep money safe in a weak economy Speak the language of wealth rather than the language of poverty Break debilitating patterns that keep you from having more and being more Protect your life against the financial "what-ifs" Start over from nothing Use your home to secure your retirement years Prepare safely and wisely for the future Bring together the laws of wealth with the laws of life

For Suze, The Courage to Be Rich means valuing people over money and money over things. It means having all that you love and loving all that you have. It means turning toward your money and turning some of your money toward others. Ultimately, it means taking the courageous steps necessary to attain your material and spiritual wealth.

Practical, spiritual, and above all, soundly financial, The Courage to Be Rich is a book for today's challenging times.

Although there is a lot of common sense wisdom in this book, it makes the presumption - as all get rich books do - that you are the kind of person who can get out there and do things, and that you are well connected. This person did not come from obscurity into fame. She was, like so many others who write about this stuff, already well on her way. Not all of us are wall street material, nor are we sufficiently free or wealthy to create new realities for ourselves.
