I was immediately drawn to the author because he made no bones about his past -- he had filed for bankruptcy. Most financial help books are written by experts who have always handled money well, and have no idea how to struggle with overwhelming debt, or what bankruptcy is actually like. As a single mom who filed for bankruptcy right along with the divorce, I DO know what it's like, and appreciated Mr. Ramsey's nonjudgmental attitude. And as a Christian, I appreciated his faith-based approach. Within this framework I found his advice practical, basic and detailed, just what I needed for getting back on my feet. I highly recommend it.

First, get and read Dave Ramsey's "Financial Peace Revisited." Then get this planner, which takes you step-by-step through Dave's tried-and-true techniques for getting out of debt and getting your financial house back in order - and KEEPING it in order forevermore. Whether you're in serious financial trouble, or simply want to have a little more control over your money, this is the plan for you. Dave Ramsey uses simple, easy-to-understand, yet vivid language to communicate a powerful message.

Initially I was suspicious of Mr. Ramsey, who seems to repackage his few simple ideas that into various combinations in order to sell more books. The Financial Peace Planner is the only book you really need to follow his program. It is comprised of the most important points and gives the clearest instructions on how to budget your money. The other books are worth reading, but get them from the library and put the money you would have spent on them towards your first baby step.

Despite what one reviewer has written, this book is invaluable for anyone who makes and/or manages money. My family didn't start it because we had real debt problems but more to figure out how to get more out of what we make. We now have a successful budget and firm, clear plans on emergency, retirement, and college fund planning. I cannot recommend this plan more highly. The faith-based approach and thorough use of examples has been uplifting and encouraging and previous knowledge of Dave's other books or his radio show, while informative, is not necessary.

I bought this book last year after stumbling across Dave's excellent radio show; I try to listen whenever I can. Reading the other people's reviews could lead one to think this book is only for those recovering from or in a debt crisis. Au contraire! Buy, read, re-read, and PRACTICE the recommendations in this book BEFORE you get into debt, stay out of debt forever, and get piles of cash. Doing this will add immeasurable peace to your life.
This book is a straight-talking, no B.S., easy-to-read gem about realistic personal finances. Everyone but the extremely rich should read it.

This is an older book of Daves, but it is full of ideas you probably have never heard before ......and they WORK !!!! We did it...dumped debt, got emergency fund together, saved and built our oWN rent free shop for our business using CASH ONLY ...all thanks to Dave Ramseys' excellent, think outside the box guidelines.

I recommend the whole financial peace university kit, but if not affordable, The Total Money Makeover is a great tool, also.

No matter how poor or rich, you will benefit from his advice.

The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it is a little dated. I bought this book along with Financial Peace Revisited, and I found this one to be more helpful. It is just the basics/outline of the book, but he actually gives examples so you can build your budget worksheets, which i found really helpful.

Having said all that, I highly recommend the books to anyone that doesn't have a written budget. I thought I had one, albeit in my head, but it turned out that I had no idea where our money was going. I was in shock when I really started tracking our spending and found that we were overspending in areas we didn't need to. Now we use cash and our debit card, instead of our credit card and I feel I'm in much more control of our money. One of these days we'll be out of debt...

My husband and I read the book just before we got married. We are already about two years ahead of schedule for savings and debt-clean-up. We will be able to purchase a home sooner than we hoped as well as save.
It is a simple step-by-step guide to basic budgeting and planning for every penny earned and spent. There are easy worksheets to fill out as you read. We dreaded reading it, but we loved it and recommend it to others!
