The book contains a lot of basic stuff you've heard before, but there are several sections that talk about saving and investing too. She insists that you must be saving some money NOW, not waiting until your debt is paid off.
She does differ with Dave Ramsey on a couple of items (such as paying your high-interest debts first, rather than Ramsey's advice to pay your smallest debts first) and she doesn't really say to never ever ever use credit cards again, but takes a more balanced approach of pay it off monthly & only buy stuff with a card if you know you have the cash in the bank to pay it off immediately.
The book is a fun read. Plenty of attitude, common sense, and a voice that implores you to be prepared for some really hard work.
If you haven't read many personal finance / budgeting books, then this would be a good one to get. If you have, you still may pick up some good tips which might be worth the Kindle Sale price to you.
The best part about it is that there are chapters that can help you save more money toward retirement even if you're already debt free and think you are doing just fine. It's aimed at people in debt, though, and has marvelous ideas for how to get rid of those credit cards and dig yourself out of debt. She says it's not easy and of course that's true, but it's easier with Gail as your teacher. Some of her ideas are so simple that you can't help but wonder why you didn't think of them yourself. But you didn't. But she did!
I also recommend her TV show, Til Debt Do Us Part.
I currently have one credit card paid off and a plan to get everything (sans $60k of student loans) paid off in the next three years.
I recommend this book to everyone. Seriously. Everyone. Even if you don't have mega financial issues like me. There's something here for everyone.
I just wish I would have read it sooner.
