By now, you’ve heard all the nutty get-rich-quick schemes, the fiscal diet fads that leave you with a lot of kooky ideas but not a penny in your pocket. Hey, if you’re tired of the lies and sick of the false promises, take a look at this—it’s the simplest, most straightforward game plan for completely making over your money habits. And it’s based on results, not pie-in-the-sky fantasies. With The Total Money Makeover: Classic Edition, you’ll be able to:

My Thoughts
The Total Money Makeover is a real, honest book about finances. It might be the helpful slap in the face to help you stop making bad financial decisions, and start living the stress-free life you always wanted to live, without debt looming around every payday.

The information in the book may not be that groundbreaking. Obviously spending money you don’t have using credit cards is not a good way to go for your bank account. However, the money myths, tips, and advice for financial guidance is helpful and a good reminder for wise financial decisions in your life.

Dave Ramsey’s radio show and financial books have helped turn many people’s lives around, so if you are in trouble with your finances, give this book a try! I highly recommend it for everyone to read that needs help with their money.
