"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)

    "Fantastic!"

    Dave Ramsey is very natural in his delivery and his content is absolutely unique. His approach seems very logical and straightforward. I highly recommend getting this book and start to follow his program as soon as possible regardless of which state you are in financially.

    "Second time listener!"

    the first time I listened to this book was for a school assignment. The second time was in order to show my fiance the lessons that I was able to capture from this book. We are releasing it to it together since we're about to start our lives together and on the right foot. Both of us have student loans right now, but not for long. once we start living together , I may sell my car and buy something for cash with it. I'm adamant about getting out of debt because I don't want to be another statistic. My cards are going to get cut up, I'm going to start planning where my money goes, and when we buy a house together it will definitely be 15 year mortgage at worst. he sounds like a dick with simplistic rules, but being an engineer I know that the simplest answer is usually the right one and the best.

    "Life changing"

    Dave Ramsey was the slap in the face that my husband and I needed. Reading this book woke us up to realize the possibilities and rewards that we could be receiving from just our own income. Thanks for this great read. Dave narrating this book put us into the gazelle intensity that we need and got us mad at our debt. I can't wait to start his baby steps.

    "Good sound advice"

    It's what many people need to hear. No rocket science. Just straight talking. Short and to the point. The tough talking could feel a little OTT for some but it is not unbearable; I found it entertaining and used appropriately to stress points. Will pay for itself many times over

    "Great advice"

    Very straight forward advice that anybody can follow and become wealthy get out of debt save for retirement etc.

    The advice is very american-based which is obvious as he is from the US but it translates very easily to the UK so can still be followed.

    I loved the baby steps, so easy to take on board and digest. I admit it would take most people a while to go through all the steps and reach the stage where u get to "live like no one else because u've lived like no one else"but the goal definitely seems worth it.

    highly recommended.
