Should be a mandatory listen for all before graduating high school!! I'm definitely planning on listening to this numerous times because it has way too many nuggets to only be digested once. Absolutely incredible!!
This book is a necessary evil. I had never read or listened to Dave Ramsey before. I heard this book was a great motivational tool. It is, but only if you can get past Ramsey's yelling and condescending tone, as well as all the scripture and passages from the Bible. If you can get past all that, the message is clear and a good one: debt is bad.
Do any of us, especially those of us struggling with money and finances, really want to hear the hard truth? I didn't. It meant taking an honest look at myself and my spending habits in a crisp, clean mirror. At first, I couldn't bear to look....Dave's no nonsense, sometimes abrasive, Southern twang was just too much. By th end of the book, the Giselle intensity had gripped ahold. I want to be in that elite club. Not for the wealth of it as much as for the peace of mind I believe the ride down on the other side will hold...because I desperately want to know if my barefeet in the grass of a debt-free backyard, really does feel different...or better. Thank you Dave. I will be in touch in a few years and perhaps we can collaborate on a project to give away some of my wealth. I simply cannot wait! Cheers!!
