Publisher's Summary

Dave Ramsey's New York Times best-selling guide to better living through financial security, now completely revised and updated.

Dave Ramsey knows what it's like to have it all. By age 26, he had established a four-million-dollar real estate portfolio, only to lose it by age 30. He has since rebuilt his financial life and, through his workshops and his New York Times business best sellers Financial Peace and More than Enough, he has helped hundreds of thousands of people to understand the forces behind their financial distress and how to set things right-financially, emotionally, and spiritually.

In this new edition of Financial Peace, Ramsey has updated his tactics and philosophy to show even more readers:

  • how to get out of debt and stay out the KISS rule of investing—"Keep It Simple, Stupid" how to use the principle of contentment to guide financial decision making
  • how the flow of money can revolutionize relationships

With practical and easy to follow methods and personal anecdotes, Financial Peace is the road map to personal control, financial security, a new, vital family dynamic, and lifetime peace.

Buy The Total Money Makeover Instead

Good book with lots of useful information, but it's not much different from The Total Money Makeover. Mostly the same information with a little more background on Dave Ramsey, who's much better at narration than the one in this book.

Surprisingly disappointing - sorry dave

I have listened to daves other book - the total money makeover more than 40 times. I bought this book thinking it might add some additional insights, but was disappointed. The difference between the two is that in the total money makeover, dave has a very succinct programme for us listeners to follow. In financial peace, it is more of a rambling journey interspersed with religious references. Clearly dave has developed his programme over time and it shows through in the total money makeover. the other reason to recommend total money makeover, over financial peace is that dave narrates his later book. In this book it is someone else who does not portray the same passion and motivation that dave brings to total money makeover. I listen to daves book every month and despite being a brit, living in britain, the key messages are just as applicable. I am working my way out of debt using caves programme. I strongly recommend any listener to look at total money makeover rather than this book as you will be better motivated, have a clear structured programme and be more likley to get out of debt and become wealthy.

It just wasn't Dave

I have been through Financial Peace University and listened to Dave Ramsey's radio show many times. Though the information in this book is great, there is not really new information.
It wasn't that the reader was bad it just didn't have the feel of being delivered by Dave. It felt stilted after listening to FPU. Of course this is to be expected as Dave is delivering it more or less live and not reading from a book.

Making wiser choices!

I really enjoyed the tips that are offered. I am implementing some of the tips slowly, but I am excited about the end result.

A Revisit to Financial Peace University

What did you love best about Financial Peace Revisited?

This edition of the Financial Peace book covers the basic principals of budgeting and cash management including establishing a workable monthly budget, the Envelope System, getting debt-free, and strategies for developing an emergency fund and long-term savings.

Dave and Sharon both share their experiences in having it all, the embarrassment and shame of losing it all, and rebuilding their financial lives step-by-step. The book is a helpful and pleasant read. I could hear Dave's "voice" in the words. If you're interested in the topic of personal finance, this is one of the books you should read. It's the kind of advice you'd get from your parents or a trusted aunt/uncle, the voice of experience.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Financial Peace Revisited?

I enjoy the "realness" of Dave and Sharon Ramsey. They share their successes, failures, and what has been learned along the way.

Not much of an update from the original

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

This is a great book if you did not listen to "The Total Money Makeover". I thought this book was just the same information in that book in a slightly different format. It is not really updated for current times. For instance, it still talks about 18% interest in a good mutual fund.

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

Nick did a great job, but he did such a good job of sounding like Dave that it was a little eerie.

Do you think Financial Peace Revisited needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Yes, and the numbers in there need to be updated for post 2009.

Great book.

The book was great the only thing I wished it was that it was updated even further. You can tell that some of the examples are obviously outdated. Otherwise a great book full of excellent principles.

Good stuff

I've been reading and listening to Dave Ramsey for around 3 years now, and wanted to get this as a way to listen to some of his earlier work. As expected, it's all good solid stuff. Well worth the time spent on it.

Dave Ramsey book

I am a huge Dave Ramsey fan and his plan. It has changed my financial life for a better. However, in my opinion this is not the best place to start. I would recommend you read Total Money Makeover book instead.

Good but very American

Some of the examples given here are a little dated, despite the revisions. But, sound concepts never really age that badly. It's a good book, and the section on mutual funds was so helpful I can't wait to reach the investing stage. It's worth pointing out that all the facts and figures and advice has been written for a North American audience. There's a lot of talk of Roth IRAs and cheque books, for example. Whereas the nearest thing for people in the UK is probably a stocks and shares ISA. And, I don't think I even know anyone who still uses a cheque book on this side of the pond! However, there is so much of value in the advice given that this is still an extremely useful listen for those of us outside the states.

Brilliant book!

Very good. I like the humorous, down to earth style and the wealth (pun intended) of practical advice!
I wish I'd been given this book years ago. I'll be giving it to my teenage daughter.

Some good money tips, religious overtones ruin it.

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

This book is for anyone who wants to gain a bit more money knowledge while having bible verses quoted during each section.

Any additional comments?

In my opinion and it is just an opinion, money/financial knowledge/advice has nothing to do with religion and the idea that 'good people' are best with money strikes me as being a little bit dishonest to what the book title implies. Not for me.
