by DAVE RAMSEY

Description

Author Dave Ramsey’s “The Total Money Makeover: Classic Edition: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness” encourages readers from all backgrounds to take control of their personal finances. With a writing style akin to a fitness program, Ramsey teaches how to build up from a “skinny” bank account into a “bulkier,” bigger one. “The Total Money Makeover” attempts to dismiss common finance myths delivered by other get-rich-quick books by providing a less complex and more straightforward approach to saving money. With plans to either get rid of debt in no time or securing funds for emergencies and retirement, “The Total Money Makeover” provides small but valuable baby steps that can help readers better understand how money truly flows and works.
