The Total Money Makeover – Dave Ramsey
I appreciate Dave Ramsey’s experience, knowledge, and insights. I think what makes him so good at what he does is that he had hit rock bottom twice because of some poor choices and had to rebound out of his own volition. Although I got quite a bit out of this book and enjoyed a lot of the personal stories from people all over the country, I thought it was a little more basic than I would have liked. I recommend reading The Complete Guide to Money instead. It covers everything in The Total Money Makeover and some more in-depth details about financial plans and budgets. However, I can also say that you can never get enough encouragement and realistic advice from someone who has suffered and knows how sinister the hole of debt can be. This is still a good book.
