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.
