    "Excellent advice with a few caveats"

    This book is great general advice for someone who wishes to get out of debt and eventually build wealth. The advice on the recommended stock market portfolio, however, is extremely dated (by about 20 years) and even for that time it wasn't very sound. The author's assertion, for example, that international mutual funds outperform the general stock market is historically untrue. His lack of emphasis - and to some degree his dismissal of the impact fees make on mutual funds returns - has also proven to be false. I recommend getting your stock/mutual fund investing advice elsewhere. While this book is very weak on actual stock/mutual fund investing advice, it is very strong on understanding debt and practical approaches for getting out of it.

    As long as the reader understands that this book needs to be understood in today's context/today's dollars, this is real meat and potatoes content on debt reduction and financial liberty.

    "decent info, just not very detailed"

    the info contained in this book was intended to go along with Dave's plan on his website. while the stand alone info is good, it's not something to really sink your teeth into. This is a good starter book to introduce you to Dave Ramsey and his system

    "Starter piece"

    This information was helpful as a starter or motivator, but vague. I recommend Smart Kids Smart Money. The latter is much more detailed and great for all stages of money management situations whether single, newly married, planning a family, or have kids in high school and on their way to college.

    "If youre ready to learn how to do it, BUY IT!"

    this has got me pumped up and given me the broken down do-able direction on how to get my finances ti a place that is manageable. it gives you hope that it is do-able because it is. it kills all intimidation that might hold you back because you dont know how some things work or how to get started. finance beginner 101

    "Some duplication from Total Money Makeover"

    Most of the same information as contained in The Total Money Makeover. Enjoyable. Dave Ramsey narrates well.
