Almost half of Dave Ramsey’s book is success stories of people who have been saved from bankruptcy due to the Total Money Makeover plan. It is nice to read, but does not bring anything new to your life.

What is more interesting are all the ?baby steps? that you must go through in order to pay your debt and then live with what you have. This is a challenge for many people today! To live in contentment and have some savings for the children’s education, illnesses, or simply paying cash for your next car—have you tried that?—it makes you feel as though you are on top of the world!

Nothing very new, but good reading. This book is especially for those who are in debt and are not yet convinced that mastering that thing called ?finance? goes through another thing called ?budget.?
