After listening to the Total Money Makeover, I realize that I need to take control of my spending and get rid of my debt. I just went onto his website and purchased his Financial Peace University. I have over $300,000 debt in medical school loans, car lease payments and personal loans. I'm ready to "live like no one else, so that I can live like no one else."
The total money makeover is a good starting point for people confused about finances. This book has a bit of a spiritual tendency but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Psychology shows that giving is an important aspect to a healthy life. Dave approach is it from more of a spiritual standpoint but I consider it true nonetheless.
I wasn't a big fan of chapters 1-6 in this audio book, but I URGE you.....stick with it. Listen to chapters 6-end. It has the potential to change the course of your life.
This book was recommended to me by my boss when I got into debt and was stressed out about money. It is the best recommendation I have ever received. I plan on taking control of my money using the tactics and lifestyle habits talked about in this book.
