    "GREAT BOOK!!!!!!"

    Dave Ramsey never ceases to inspire. And, I must say, hearing his voice in this audiobook makes a huge difference on how impacting it is. This book will teach you the ins and outs of getting out of debt, and wealth building, even from an average income! Although getting out of debt can be quite the challenge, this book is very easy to understand, and is loaded with trustworthy information. It is a proven plan to financial success. I love it!

    "Very easy to listen to"

    A lot of audio books put me to sleep. Not this one!!! Very entertaining and informative. I couldn't stop listening. Dave Ramsey makes it very easy to listen to by adding some humor to his speaking. Very down to earth book that is directed at individuals of all economical and educational status. Any and all can benefit from this book.

    "Preacher"

    The content of this book is not bad, and the problems I had with it does not concern how or what to do (according to the author). I just felt that the spiritual twist is not needed to show how or what you can do to 'loose weight' in terms of debt - regardless of being Christian or having no or other beliefs. Mentioning the title of the book more than 50 times makes the content quite boring. And it was! I never stop reading (or in this case; listening to) a book due to boredom - but this is actually the first time I wish I saved some time to start reading something else.

    "A must read"
    What did you love best about The Total Money Makeover?

    Everything. Dave's performance is really engaging. The total Money Makeover system is just amazing. It's simplicity might make you think "It cannot be so simple. I have studies, degrees, thousands of hours working on complex topics and I cannot believe a simple system based on 7 baby steps is the solution...", but it is so simple. It requires courage and determination, but you can feel the truth behind.


    What other book might you compare The Total Money Makeover to and why?

    I am sorry, but I cannot compare The Total Money Makeover with any other book. The simplicity of the steps and principles is just incomparable. You can complicate your financial life and your real life in many ways. Dave eliminates all that complexity and provide a clear path


    Have you listened to any of Dave Ramsey’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first time I listen to a Dave Ramsey's audio-book, so I cannot compare. His performance is just amazing. He kept me fully engaged from the beginning till the end.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    It might be difficult, but it is not complicated!

    "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.
