Customer Reviews:

  • Excellent book for those in a little or a lot of debt!
    My husband and I read the book just before we got married. We are already about two years ahead of schedule for savings and debt-clean-up. We will be able to purchase a home sooner than we hoped as well as save.

    It is a simple step-by-step guide to basic budgeting and planning for every penny earned and spent. There are easy worksheets to fill out as you read. We dreaded reading it, but we loved it and recommend it to others!...more info

  • Great guide for getting your financial life back in control.
    I loved this book! I thought my husband and I would be in debt for the rest of our lives, but after reading Ramsey's guide, we feel like we're finally getting control of our finances. We expect to be "in the black" within three years. Thanks, Dave!...more info
  • an excellent plan for financial freedom
    This is a great plan to achieve financial freedom and will certainly change the way you look at money. If you're willing to do a few things in the short term, which may seem hard, it will change the way you live in the long term. If you're new to Dave Ramsey's philosophies, Financial Peace is the book you should read first. It is the foundation for all his teachings. In fact, this book is so good, in my opinion, it's the only Dave Ramsey book you need. The other is just icing on the cake....more info
  • Dave Ramsey is a Financial Icon
    This is a must read book for anyone who wants to understand and develop a healthy relationship to money. Dave gets to the point, is logical and breaks ideas down to the simplest elements so that you not only know what to do but you understand the concepts of why you must do it. He does not give you a fish, he teaches you how to fish. I loved the way he organized the information so that each concept would build to the next. What a wonderful book. He uses great stories throughout and his humor and strength make the book a pure joy to read. Don't walk, run to get this book....more info

  • Dave Ramsey is AMAZING help !!!
    This is an older book of Daves, but it is full of ideas you probably have never heard before ......and they WORK !!!! We did it...dumped debt, got emergency fund together, saved and built our oWN rent free shop for our business using CASH ONLY ...all thanks to Dave Ramseys' excellent, think outside the box guidelines.
    I recommend the whole financial peace university kit, but if not affordable, The Total Money Makeover is a great tool, also.
    No matter how poor or rich, you will benefit from his advice....more info
  • Should be required reading in all schools
    This book is full of timeless advice. I wish I had one before I entered the marketplace.

    It should be a required textbook in a course of study on personal economics in all schools public or private....more info
  • Perfect for anyone who makes money
    Despite what one reviewer has written, this book is invaluable for anyone who makes and/or manages money. My family didn't start it because we had real debt problems but more to figure out how to get more out of what we make. We now have a successful budget and firm, clear plans on emergency, retirement, and college fund planning. I cannot recommend this plan more highly. The faith-based approach and thorough use of examples has been uplifting and encouraging and previous knowledge of Dave's other books or his radio show, while informative, is not necessary. ...more info
  • Outstanding Companion to the Book
    First, get and read Dave Ramsey's "Financial Peace Revisited." Then get this planner, which takes you step-by-step through Dave's tried-and-true techniques for getting out of debt and getting your financial house back in order - and KEEPING it in order forevermore. Whether you're in serious financial trouble, or simply want to have a little more control over your money, this is the plan for you. Dave Ramsey uses simple, easy-to-understand, yet vivid language to communicate a powerful message....more info
  • More Than Debt Recovery
    I bought this book last year after stumbling across Dave's excellent radio show; I try to listen whenever I can. Reading the other people's reviews could lead one to think this book is only for those recovering from or in a debt crisis. Au contraire! Buy, read, re-read, and PRACTICE the recommendations in this book BEFORE you get into debt, stay out of debt forever, and get piles of cash. Doing this will add immeasurable peace to your life.

    This book is a straight-talking, no B.S., easy-to-read gem about realistic personal finances. Everyone but the extremely rich should read it....more info

  • Excellent for readers in financial recovery
    I was immediately drawn to the author because he made no bones about his past -- he had filed for bankruptcy. Most financial help books are written by experts who have always handled money well, and have no idea how to struggle with overwhelming debt, or what bankruptcy is actually like. As a single mom who filed for bankruptcy right along with the divorce, I DO know what it's like, and appreciated Mr. Ramsey's nonjudgmental attitude. And as a Christian, I appreciated his faith-based approach. Within this framework I found his advice practical, basic and detailed, just what I needed for getting back on my feet. I highly recommend it....more info
  • Great help for the clueless
    As a single mother who has never had to make financial decisions on her own, I found this book extremely helpful. Ramsey lays out, in detail, a list of general goals and how to achieve them. For those of us who have trouble prioritizing and planning for long-term financial goals, such as retirement and debt-free living, this book is a wonderful help....more info
  • Change without Shame
    If you are like me, you probably have had some problem in the past with your finances and with that there come as certain bit of shame. Dave show us in this book that taking responsibility for your debt doesn't mean that you have to take the shame that comes with it. Like most of us we never intended not to pay our debt, it's just that our debt controlled us instead of us controlling it. This book lays out a step by step plan to take control of our debt. Do yourself a favor take control, buy the book and gain Financial Peace today....more info
  • Kow your situation first...
    This book will be very beneficial to you if you are in dire financial straits and need some guidance in what to do. If in the other hand, you do not have collection agencies calling at all ours of the day, most of the chapters may not help you. Overall, picked up a few tips on better managing the finances, but would only recommend as a "must read" for those overwhelmed with monetary problems. Otherwise, there are more in-depth books that cover the same topics....more info
  • This a book is one you must read!!
    Absolutely the best. If you are like any red-blooded American that I know, this book is for you. It helps you to seriously prioritize your finances and if you are sincere, you will begin to honestly be at peace with your finances....more info
