"The strength of this book is that it is a straightforward motivational tool. He provides the brutally direct truth about the hard work it takes to become free of debt, and his directness is a great part of the book's charm." (Publishers Weekly)
I would give a B-. Gets to the point, gives good metaphors and easy to follow.
Metaphors used to describe steps or missteps are very memorable and applicable to most people.
Voice and diction were probably best compared to what I have listened. Would expect good performance from professional speaker. Have heard some "funny" start/stops or paragraph breaks on other books. Probably start of new session or after break. Did not hear in Ramsey's performance, however this book is shorter than most. 3+ hours
No crying, definitely a few laughs. Mostly found myself quoting excerpts to others.
Religious overtones and bible quotes throughout book. However quotes in nature of "Saving" money and neither borrowing or lending; giving money OK. People describe me as Agnostic and this did not bother me. All in all good book, great performance. Enjoy
Great narrating style and passionate reading! I loved how the author mixes his personal story, great life examples of his friends and clients and a bit of good old fashioned mathematical common sense! If you would like to be free and feel free, listen to the book and follow its suggestions! It is what America needs to hear today!
One of the best. The wisdom is timeless and applicable. It is very easy to do but it does take a concentrated effort to implement but so worth it. Mad at myself for not learning this earlier but today is a great day to start!
The Millionaire Next Door. Dispels the myths about what real wealth looks like.
Financial Peace - Right up there with TMM
How to reduce debt, build wealth and give it all away!
This is unlike other audiobook narrations. Dave speaks like your personal coach. He's passionate and makes you focus on specific actions steps. Some of the suggestions are dated (eg. Mutual fund average performance and loan interest rates). But the principles are timeless and valuable.
You dont have to be broke to benefit from this audiobook. I wish I read it when I was a teenager. Both my wife and I loved it and are implementing its key strategies and feeling more on top of things.
Great book showing a simple, common sense, approach to getting free of debt. It's not easy. You'll have to sacrifice and live like nobody else but end the end you will be able to LIVE like nobody else!
I appreciate the insight offered in this book. The steps outlined are easy to understand. The scenarios offered were helpful.
Listening to Dave Ramsey just make it that more impressive.
Learning that other who have now made it were where most of us are today
He speaks from the heart.
Book really makes you think about your situation.
If you or someone you know need help with money this is a must read.
This is one of the best audiobooks I have listened to so far. The money management strategies are valuable for anyone, whether or not they consider themselves to already have a solid grip on financial management. There is something for everyone.
Dave Ramsey's narration is compelling. The way in which he conveys this book, which might be considered a dry topic to listen to, is dynamic and engaging.
Yes but with hesitation. His demeanor is rough in his presentation. I enjoyed it, I needed a good yelling at to get my crap together!
Of course!! He is brilliantly caring.
No Credit Cards, Pay Cash!!
His methods are the real deal. Straight forward and honest. Give it a go.
"Thank you Dave Ramsey"
This is a quick update to those in need of hope. I wrote a review back in June last year and now wish i could give this book more than 5 stars!!! We are now debt free, thanks to Dave's principles layed out clearly in this book.
"A Common Sense Approach to Handling Money."
I've listened to this book a few times now and Dave is clearly passionate about teaching others that it is possible to live a debt free life. I used to think that I was quite good with my money (not that I had much) but this tough, common sense guide revealed to me that I could have done so much better. Although, no longer in my youth Dave also makes it clear that it's not too late to start.
It was really helpful practical guide to personal finance really accessible and potentially life transforming. Give it a go I did and loved it
"A must - Educational, engaging and fun"
I have hear about Dame Ramsey before and now listened to this rather short book and I was really satisfied. Dave's voice, ideas, processes to get better with money are life changing, so motivational, definitely must listen for everyone. I strongly recommend, I have enjoyed every minute of it!
So easy to follow.
Personal stories, Dave himself.
Don't only listen but put in action ;-)
It took me a while to get over the slightly aggressive American tone - I guess passion would be a better word than agressive. But the concept is simple and makes perfect sense.
"Helped us get in shape"
I found out about Dave Ramsey about seven months ago (December 2012) and from the first podcast I downloaded for his radio talk show, I knew this guy was different. He is genuine, honest, informed and tells it like it is. My husband and I had debt of about $28,000 which we werent too concerned about but had tried to pay off and somehow no matter what we did it just never seemed to go away. We enrolled for FPU online around March 2013 and wow, what a class!!! We decided to pay off all our debt but for some reason stalled. I then went ahead and bought this book (audio) about a month after we'd completed FPU, something about the way he explained debt and just how restrictive it was clicked deeper. I was on a coach on the way to work, by the time we arrived I had a tear in my eye and knew that I knew that I knew that we were paying our debt off that day. Fortunately we had the money to clear all our debt and just went ahead and did it. I cannot describe the feeling. Walking around debt free is totally liberating. I would never have done it if it werent for FPU or this book. For some reason we thought earning 0.5% in a savings account would beat the 7-10% interest rates we were paying on the debt. We just hadnt done the Maths. We have now changed our habits and are already living like no one lese so later we get to live like no else.
Thank you Dave Ramsey and may God bless and your wonderful family for the wonderful work you are doing to enlighten those of us who had somehow gotten degrees in D.U.M.B.
"Just Buy it"
