The Total Money Makeover
Print
"Ramsey offers a bold, no-nonsense approach to money matters, providing not only the how-to but also a grounded and uplifting hope for getting out of debt and achieving total financial health. Ramsey debunks the many myths of money (exposing the dangers of cash advance, rent-to-own, debt consolidation) and attacks the illusions and downright deceptions of the American dream, which encourages nothing but overspending and massive amounts of debt. "Don't even consider keeping up with the Joneses," Ramsey declares in his typically candid style. "They're broke!" This book isn't theory. It works every single time. It works because it is simple. It works because it gets to the heart of the money problems: you"--Publisher's description.

Dave Ramsey offers "no nonsense" advice for your financial woes.

This book is slowly changing my financial life for the better. I no longer struggle month to month in coming up with enough money to pay my bills. The envelope system ensures that every month I set aside money that I can not touch. I am no longer caught off guard by holiday expenses.

This book changed my life, financial and otherwise. Ramsey breaks your makeover into baby steps that you can concentrate on and achieve.
5 years ago I had credit card debt, a car loan, virtually no money saved and was frustrated/angry every time I had to sit down and pay bills.
Fast forward to today. I have no debt except on my reasonable mortgage. I have money saved for emergencies, funding my daughters college funds, saving for my retirement, able to take my family on paid for vacation, and slowly killing off the mortgage bit by bit.
I'm able to help and give more now than I ever have. Give it a try, if you don't like it you can always go back to doing what you are doing now!

The information wasn't new to me, but I like how it was presented with real life stories. Unfortunately, I don't think that California mortgages are as easy to pay off as other states, but it would be a good goal.
