A Book in Review: The Total Money Makeover

The Total Money Makeover By: Dave Ramsey
Non-Fiction: money, 249 pages
Book Count: 17

This is a book on money that has two main sections. The first part deals with money myths that people may believe and the reasons why they do not add up. The second part is a plan on how the get out of debt, save for the future and otherwise deal with money. Although, the writer feels that this change in how you deal with money should include all of you (soul too) and notes many times that they are writing as a Christian, this book is actually a lot less preachy then other religious money books. Also, unlike other books on money systems that seam like they may not work in the real world (this one because it sounds too easy for the results it talks about) it includes stories of people it worked for in the book, and I have heard of people that use the system from things outside of the book. In fact, I only picked up the book from all the time the author was mentioned in a couple of blogs I read and the fact that its what the people from "(X number) of Kids and Counting" used to build a house without a loan. (Which would be impressive even without 2 dozen people to feed.)
