    "Love, love, love this and FPU"

    Dave Ramsey helps define wealth and how to make it a realistic goal and shows how our world defines it wrong and normal is broke and over 60% believe this lie to the point they can not retire! Thanks Dave for showing another path that has proven itself time and again.

    "Inspiring!"

    I would recommend this book to everyone! There is something for everyone in all stages of life. I initially decided to read this book after listening to Dave's podcast over the past 2 weeks. I found that most of his teachings made perfect sense to me and I found myself ready to "live like no one else, so I could LIVE like no one else". I'm sure that I will go back to this book often as I complete my baby steps.

    "Practical advise for everyone"

    Love the content. Practical advise for anyone and everyone. I did not care for the yelling and stressful tone of the performance, but that is the personality of the author, so does accentuate the message.

    "Good avice, but need to adapt it to where you live"

    I listened to this book since he's so influential in the media. Thousands have given the accolades, so I will address a few other nuances here. Like some reviewers, I am actually offended by his tone of voice in the audio book. There is no need for that! Kudos to him for tapping into the Christian Church circuit and providing advice for those who need it. He gives simple, straight-forward advice that works in most of the country, where the cost of a house may be four times your annual income. For us San Francisco Bay readers, it won't work - well, at least not in any decent time frame. Housing may be over ten times your income, and moving out of state is not the solution. Take what good advice as you can and adapt it to where you live.

    "Few books have changed my life like this."

    This book has changed my life and the lives of everyone in my family. It has changed my family tree. If you can filter/accept/ignore the religious points (it wasn't too much to handle) the 7 steps just make sense. It's changed the way I look at money, and inspired me to make the needed changes to retire with dignity and actually leave a legacy for my kids. This are going to be tough in the short to so that they can be amazing i. the long term.
