    Since I ve been in the middle of a lot of money trouble, a friend of mine lent me this book as well as a little cash to make it through my next set of bills I figured I owed him enough to at least read the book.I can t tell you how annoying it was to read this thing, which is clearly just a collection of transcribed parts of Ramsey s seminars and radio shows from the 1990s So he gives us some moderately sound financial advice Get out of debt, or better yet, don t go into it Save where you can Invest in mutual funds once you ve saved.Beyond those few points, this guy is both irrelevant and dangerously stereotypical The book doesn t even mention the Internet or housing boom busts or financial problems of the current economy He talks about looking for deals as if we ve never heard of craigslist and then proceeds to act like it doesn t exist I would be okay with this, as the book seems to have been written about 20 years ago, but this is the updated, revisited edition This man has had time to update things.He blathers about how everyone can save and stay out of debt, and yet makes the assumption that everyone is going to find work all the time that will pay at least 30,000 a year, which he classifies as really low end income I got news for you, Dave I barely made it on about half that last year, and I am working three jobs I have than a half dozen friends who are in similar situations He has the nerve to question the maturity of 20 somethings who are still living with their parents or with friends, because they just aren t working hard enough, and classifies it as a problem with my generation A great deal of his suggestions will only work if you don t have to continue to go into debt to survive or are even just cutting it close Saving money and paying toward debt only ever works when something can be cut somewhere to save.And the part that made even these socioeconomic gaffs is his ridiculous stereotypical worldview in which everyone is going to get married The men are going to go and earn money The women could go out and work, but in some situations should just stay home and take care of kids They are going to buy a house and have 2.5 kids He is going to want a car and a boat and she is going to want a kitchen set He jokes that when he sells houses, he sells women the kitchen and men the basement You know what, Dave I m renting where I am because I like my kitchen and basement Every chapter is clearly aimed at men, and techniques are sold in the same way Each chapter is followed by a short, couple paragraph summary from Ramsey s wife Sharon, who breaks down the ideas for the ladies In one pretty straightforward chapter about investing, Sharon s section explicitly tells women to ask their husbands to explain it to them I was sputtering at some of the tripe I read The sidelong jokes about Social Insecurity probably make better seminar quip fodder, and they certainly didn t help me through this book.Except for one or two good points, this was absolute drivel, and I didn t even understand some of it Maybe I should ask my husband to explain it to me.

    I loved every part of it I like how Dave covered everything from getting out of debt, to staying out of debt, to money for singles, married, divorced, etc., to building wealth My favorite things about this book were how Dave explained The power of compound interest and mutual funds when they re working for you I know I ll be putting large amounts of money into savings and mutual funds I also know I will be very tight on enjoyment spending during college so I don t need to get student loans This is one of the top ten books I would recommend every teen read.

    Dave Ramsey has taken a tested and true set of principles, threw some scripture quotes in, and called it Financial Peace And that s fine, because if it helps to get people to get their cash flow under control, power to him.As a representative of the genre this book belongs to, it really is not bad Usually in books of this nature the author will attempt to establish his credibility by telling you, in 1 2 the book, his story For extreme examples of this, please see the 4 hour series by Tim Farris But Mr Ramsey does not dwell longer than what is needed Here s my story, now on to the meat.But this meat does come with a big stack of fluff First off, the Thoughts from Sharon his wife is pointless, and in some cases demeaning toward women Maybe because I ve married and have lived with a very strong woman for 12 years, I was embarrassed by some of what she said We women love to shop, don t we And the Peace puppies is just a list of his take aways from each chapter, but the list continues to contain all the previous notes, so by the end, this list takes up 3 pages.In the end though none of that matters What matters is that the author puts in front of the reader a clear plan and reasons on how his system works He s done that Its up to the reader to decide if he she chooses to follow it, and how devoted to the system that person will be.And that is the true rating of this kind of book Not whatever star count I place in this review.

    I get it Thanks That was my overall feeling while reading Financial Peace Revisited This book is a near copy of the other books pushed out by Dave Ramsey His book Total Money Makeover had been suggested to me and then read and reviewed before.Financial Peace Revisited had a few extra insights in it that I enjoyed, but I probably wouldn t have done anything than flipped through it were it not for my reading group.I might reference his categorical generalizations of the financial decisions people tend to make throughout life, simply as a way to remind myself what to be aware of Other than that, my overall advice regarding this advice giving book if you ve read one of his books you ve read them all Take a look at the table of contents, see if there s anything that catches your eye, skim it, and then put it back on the shelf Who knows, maybe the simple act of not buying the book will empower you with a little extra financial peace.

    Found the author s podcast recently during one of my long trips on the road After listening I was determined to get a hold of this book Now that I ve read it, I do see the need for proper management of what God has given to us in the form of money Money is a gift and the principles outlined here are a good guide to managing your finances This is a must have if you are trying to stay out of debt, trying to build wealth, and ultimately trying to serve God with what He has allowed you to have.

    I read this book in 2005 while attending Financial Peace University at my church The combination helped me change the direction of my financial life, motivated me to pay off all my debts, helped me become a much better saver, and equipped me with the knowledge to help several of my friends become debt free too I highly recommend this book and the FPU course to anyone that does not have a financial plan for their life, and I am than willing to share what I have learned and help you get to FREEEEEDOM too.

    Common sense and practical financial information and advice that most people already know , but don t always follow The back of the book contains a myriad of worksheets to help you after you read Dave s wife, Sharon, comments at the end of every chapter, which wasn t very informative or interesting Otherwise, a decent primer for the average Joe to refresh his financial saavy or learn it new.

    While some info in this is slightly dated the advice remains relevant While we have slowly and admittedly inconsistently practiced the advice offered, already it has helped me be aware of money like never before Definitely something or everyone in this book, from the struggling millennial to the baby boomer unable to retire Financial Peace offers everything in the title and .

    I assume that there is a need for a book such as this in fact I m sure of it, given how many copies have been sold But I am not the target audience There is nothing here that is new to me, and I found it tedious, repetitive and unhelpful I don t like being this harsh, but it is the truth.
