Author: Dave Ramsey
Review: We started out by reading, The Total Money Make-over about 8 years ago. We followed the plan and paid off our debt, except out house, in two and a half years. After taking the class, Financial Peace, at a local church we continued to follow his plan for our finances. It is tough and you have to constantly strive to stay debt free and live within your income, but it is worth it. We worry less about money and now have a will so if anything happens our five kids will be taken care of.
This book is full of quotes and real life examples of how getting out of debt and staying that way has helped people everywhere and in every walk of life. If you follow Dave’s simple formula you can enjoy the benefits of living debt free and the joy of knowing you owe nothing to anyone. This is a little book that can get you on the path to financial peace. Peace of mind is priceless.
Give this book and try and I think you will be shocked at what changes you can make and still have what you need and some of the things you want. Go out there and read this book or any others by Dave Ramsey. By the time you read them and get out of debt you will be kissing my feet for telling you about it. Get some financial peace of mind and quit trying to keep up with the Jones next door. I hate to break it to you, but they are broke and wondering how many more months they can make it without you finding out.
Cut those credit cards up...they are not making your life better...its just an illusion that you have to pay for, for the rest of your life.
