Greatly enjoyed reading this book and you will too! An inspiration!
Awesome read, simple but very effective.
I highly recommend this book it’s common sense. First got the book around December 2016 and me and my wife are still on the baby steps and have paid off over $40,000 in debt.
This book will change the way you look at money and change your life for the better if you take to heart everything this books have to offer !!!
A true makeover
This book has help me to see that I can let go of the poor people way of living. Live like no one, so you can live like no one else.
This book is incredible. I tore through it and was inspired to change my financial situation the second I finished.
As someone with an MBA, I felt it should be much more complicated to win financially. It's not! This book walks you through the "Babysteps" and gives you a clear roadmap to get rid of debt, utilize your most important wealth building tool (your income), and start building wealth.
This book also goes over insurance and other topics that are essential to getting and keeping your financial world intact.
I started listening to the podcast, read this book, started using the Everydollar budgeting app when that was released, and now it is a way of life. You will find, if you are married, this will draw you closer to your spouse as you team up to envision, then work toward your goals.
If you are looking for a way to turn around, simplify, or even fine tune your personal situation. Buy this book!
Complete Game Changer!

This book is filled with amazing information to get you to live an amazing life. The fun part is that all of the information given to us is purely common sense. It's ridiculous how simple and obvious each of these chapters are.
Great financial book minus the religious stuff
By Building my cup
I love mathematics, science, finance, psychology... Let's just say overall knowledge. This is a must read for financial geeks and those generally interested. Its source of greatness stems from a simple formula- turn a problematic whole, into smaller more manageable parts. Genius in its simplicity. The must-have psychological additive is hope, derived from two well known sources; 1) triumphant real life stories, and 2) religion.
The book could have hit higher on the scale had religion been kept out of it. I found it curious that dave's advice oscillated from "use your common sense when taking financial advice from 'x'" and "listen and trust God." To me, it was as if he was saying to use common sense after you educate yourself in finance but divorce yourself of scientific knowledge and common sense when applying religion. Too inconsistent for me and almost hypocritical. He uses religion as a measuring stick when applying humanitarian uses to wealth. The humanitarian appeal sufficed my dear Dave.
The financial advice for those of us not well versed in macro and micro economics was spot on. Anyone interested in paying down debt must arm themselves with his simple message.
Anyone interested in my financial biometrics... 33 years old, debt free, $55,000 in 401k, 15% pretax into retirement, rent not own home, currently working on my emergency fund.
Good luck everyone!! ;-)
This book has biblical principles, but more, it has simple common sense methods.
Great read to become financially fit!
Total money makeover
This book is amazing
Totally life changes.
I have read a plethora of books in my short life of twenty one years, but I must say this is the most helpful. Now that I have read this book, I'm am eager to get paid. I am eager to become debt free. I am eager to build wealth with my normal income and become a millionaire through investments. If you have the same aspirations, then this is definitely a must read for you! Now that I have read this book, I only read books to gain knowledge. Reading to gain knowledge has become my new hobby. This book will change your life.
