I've read quite a few financial books and this is the best one I've read. It's what I wish my parents could have/would have taught me. I plan to teach these principles to my son. It's very conversational and you feel like your mom or aunt is teaching you life money lessons. Thank you for getting access to the forms. I just finished the book and that was the one downside because they are very helpful if you want to actually do the plan.
The most helpful to me was: how to categorize budget as must haves, wants and savings
What is really going on with credit card companies
How to pay off debt and plan for the future
Everything in this book is living off your current income, it really lets you see where you may need to cut back or add and what is truly important to you.
As a financial consultant for many years, I enjoyed the book and truly appreciate the simplicity and direction it provides for budgeting in a simple way. Excellent advice for getting a handle on your finances! I recommended it.
I am a consumer bankruptcy attorney and I can not give this book high enough praise. The author, Elizabeth Warren, is Harvard law professor and an expert on consumer finance and bankruptcy law.
If you are deep in debt this plan may be difficult to execute, but if you have moderate debt and are not in financial crisis then this is THE plan for you. I wish more of my clients had this book years ago, it not only could have saved them from bankruptcy, but it could have made them financially secure over time.
It is simple and easy, but it may take a little discipline at first.
Please! I would like to see access to the 'forms' through Audible, which I would have received on a CD.
I took a "financial peace" course a couple years ago, but was overwhelmed by it. Maybe the time is now right for me to see it, but 'Worth' is basic and understandable.
Best financial book I have ever read. Great advice for everyone.
I learned a lot about what to do, and more importantly what not to do.
Written by a mother-daughter team, who also charmingly narrate their book, this is a very down-to-earth guide to managing a budget. The book is well-organized and comes with downloadable worksheets to follow through on their plan. Operating with the fundamental premise that our budgets should be dedicated to a 50-30-20 ratio for "must-haves," "wants," and "savings," the authors guide readers/listeners through the steps to put this plan into action. This book is great for anyone trying to better manage their budget, whether you're a homeowner or a renter, deep in credit card debt or not, or dealing with high cost-of-living that is eating your income up.
Simple budget concept, which is a good thing.
When Elizabeth Warren speaks, I listen. She is sharp and knows the problems of personal finance probably better than anyone in the U.S.
Top notch production quality, lovingly read by the authors. Very easy to follow with simple language and a down to earth approach, tackles the real problems facing today's families and individuals. These ladies have impeccable credentials, look them up and you'll be impressed. Highly recommended.
I will listen to this again because it was enjoyable and educational. I will skip the chapters on bankruptcy the second time around though because I am far from needing that advice.
I enjoyed the voice of EW best.
No extreme reactions, but I was looking for simple reminders of personal financial success. I am a single woman in her 40's, make a nice living and support myself. However, I have a problem with impulse spending and emotional spending. Retail therapy has recently taken a big bite out of my savings, so I turned to this book to get me back on track. I found what I was looking for here. No, they don't talk about emotional spending, but I didn't really expect them to.
If you need clear advice on paying down debts, figuring out your real must-haves and trimming the ones you don't really need, and finally saving money, this book can go a long way to get you there. It is over a decade old, but the basics here are never outdated.
Even though it was written in 2005, a lot of the advice is still no nonsense and sensible. Mixing the practicality of tracking dollars, not pennies, with a spending ratio that works at all stages of life, this book is a must.
