What the Critics Say

"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)

    "This book is for when the ship already sank."

    This book is for people who are already in debt, I am not in debt, I'm not sure what I expected out of this book but I used to listen to daves podcast and thought they were great but he gets super preachy about religion on those and in this book.

    "Nailed it"

    It's a real eye opening book. A little bit too religious for me, but has a lot of very good tips for financial freedom and starting your journey.

    "Sound plan with a lot of sarcasm"

    Message is loud & clear- ideas are sound & plan is great. Made me think & rethink many financial beliefs. Having heard other Ramsey books & talk show - felt the delivery was a bit blunt & biting- could possibly offend readers & turn them off to a great plan before ever hearing the ideas & suggestions

    "Dave is better on stage, but good too."

    Dave is a little better in his presentations on stage...took a little while to get used to how he reads, but it gets better as you go. Very important information...wish I had been ready to hear and apply this when I was younger.

    Story
    "Wasn't expecting it to be as motivating as it was"
    If you could sum up The Total Money Makeover in three words, what would they be?

    Motivating, energetic, educational


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Total Money Makeover?

    The time frame that Dave Ramsey uses when discussing how long it will take you to pay off debt is fascinating. Once I realized how soon I could be debt free, I was hooked on his plan.


    What about Dave Ramsey’s performance did you like?

    He is reading his own work, so you know he truly and whole-heartedly believes in what he is saying. You can tell by his voice just how excited he is about the knowledge he's giving.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Always have a $1000 emergency fund. Always. Even if it means selling something, get to that $1000 mark and maintain it. Hard times WILL find you, and you'll be thankful to have that extra cash.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommend!
