Book really makes you think about your situation.
If you or someone you know need help with money this is a must read.

Even if you might not adhere to Dave's plan exactly, the idea of slavery to debt and freedom from it are very motivational. I feel like the examples he uses are real life people and he doesn't use terms or language that is reserved for finance professionals. It really is a good, practical plan for getting out of debt via hard work and perseverance. Even though his plan is not the best "mathematically", the point of getting some quick wins by paying off the lowest balance without regard to interest rate is a legitimate point. Honestly, you can hear most of the content of this book in his daily podcasts. I do recommend this book to people.
This audio book was a great no nonsense guide on how to get a grip and "live like now one else so you can live like no one else". I listended to it about a month ago and my wife and I are still painfully aware of our financial situation and resolved to do better.
My wife and I were "normal." We realized that we were working long hours so we could pay the banks instead of our own household. The Total Money Makeover started us on the right path to paying off our debt in just one year instead of eight years, if we would have stuck with the standard minimum monthly payments. This book will explain Dave Ramsey's Baby Steps. They will get you on the right plan, guiding you every step of the way. Dave Ramsey is an excellent teacher, and I can't think of anyone with a better plan. Start with this book and it will open up a whole new world to living debt free and using your number one wealth building tool: your income.
Both inspiring and accurate, clear and simple. This book can set you free.
Dave if funny and candid. He doesn't sugar coat the issues or the problems that cause them. Direct is the best approach for the subject and is that.
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.
I like Dave's voice, but in this recording he seems to be yelling at me and talking down to me. It made it hard to listen to and was quite distracting.
The narration/reading of this book made me wonder if it was written in all capitals and italics. While I appreciated the information/ideas shared by the author, I didn't appreciate him yelling at me. I understand he's trying to motivate, but the intensity of his voice was just too much.
I liked the performance of Dave Ramsey.
My reaction to the book is that i started to apply Dave instructions and it is working.
