2.0 out of 5 stars Warning... Danger, September 11, 2010
The financial projections in this book are way off and telling people they can expect a 12% return is irresponsible and dishonest for a book targeting people in need of financial relief. While some of the information in the book is good, the book has the word "Total" in the title. It is not called "The Partially Correct, Somewhat Honest, Sparsely Accurate Money Makeover". Dave is trying so hard to motivate his readers that he errs on the side of giving false hope. Again, certain parts of Dave's plan are good but if you were stranded in Iran and I had an 8 step plan to get you out, but the last 2 steps were erroneous... how "out of Iran" would you ever be? The book will get you half way there. Out of debt.

If your investments have achieved a 12% annual ROR over a 15 year period--believe me... you're the one who needs to be writing a book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Oh Yeah, You Can Tell He's Rich!!!, June 17, 2010
This book is a double edged sword. It alerts you that an asteroid is about to strike the planet (metaphorically) but instead of issuing any real instruction it simply yells... RUUUUNNNNN!!!!! It's amazing that the author can open your eyes to all the tricks the rich use while at the same time spoon feeding information and repeating the same stuff over and over again when he could use that time to instruct and fill in the gaping holes. What the author does do is plug his Cash Flow game, other books and follow up services. This is not a "How To" book. This is a "You Need To Figure Out A Way To" book.

Only reason I gave it 3 stars is because it did open my eyes. But once my eyes opened I was all, "Hey, you're one of them!" Dude, next time you write a book to help people. Help them. Just a thought.
