5.0 out of 5 stars Gain Control of Your Financial Future, January 30, 2008
This review is from: Financial Peace Revisited: New Chapters on Marriage, Singles, Kids and Families (Hardcover)
"Since money problems and fights are statistically the biggest problem in marriage, any one of us who is wise will be on guard against these problems and looking for ways to win." ~ pg. 207

After reading Dave Ramsey's "Total Money Makeover," I was interested in seeing what he had to say in "Financial Peace Revisited." My husband and I are reading all his books and so far we have set up a realistic budget and have almost paid off all our credit card debt. It was amazing how fast we got with the program and how quickly it works. My only advice is to give yourself time to adjust to the changes. It took me a few weeks to sit down and type out a budget (my husband initially used the worksheets in the back of the book) but I eventually did and it felt good to be in more control of our finances.

How do you control buying fever?
Can someone really become a millionaire by saving $65 a month?
Could this book really save your marriage?
How can you save money when you have credit card debt?
Are you tired of being a servant to financial institutions?
Where should I invest my money for retirement?

These are the types of questions Dave Ramsey answers...and more. I never thought books on finance could be so fun to read. In this book he also makes investing easy to understand. He gets very excited when talking about mutual funds. Some of the main ideas in this book include plans to deal with unexpected expenses (money in savings and emergency funds) and how to pay off debt quickly.

"On average, cardholders carry a $8,367 balance on their cards from month to month (160 percent increase since the past decade), paying an average 18.3 percent in interest." ~ pg. 73

I've listened to Dave Ramsey's radio show and have always found his advice helpful. I can also highly recommend his books. I also think you would love: The Total Money Makeover: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness.
