BOOK REVIEW: Dave Ramsey's Complete Guide to Money by Dave Ramsey



✭✭✭✭✭

ABOUT THE BOOK (from Amazon):

Dave Ramsey’s Complete Guide to Money covers the A to Z of Dave’s money teaching, including how to budget, save, dump debt, and invest. If you’re looking for practical information to answer all your “How?” “What?” and “Why?” questions about money, this book is for you. You’ll also learn all about insurance, mortgage options, marketing, bargain hunting and the most important element of all—giving. Now let’s be honest: This is the handbook of Financial Peace University.

MY REVIEW:

I haven't taken the "Financial Peace University" (for which this book is the labeled as the handbook) and I'm not in debt up to my eyeballs, but I've heard a lot about Dave Ramsey's philosophies and wanted to learn more about them. I think anyone could learn a thing or two from any of Dave Ramsey's books regardless of whether their financial situation is good or bad.  And although The Total Money Makeover is probably the Dave Ramsey book to read if you're not taking the Financial Peace University, I found Dave Ramsey's Complete Guide to Money very insightful!  Ramsey's methods are easy to follow (in theory), although they do require an extreme amount of discipline. Having read this book, I am a firm believer in his teachings and I highly recommend this book.
