The Total Money Makeover: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness by Dave Ramsey

inspiring medium-paced


An oldie but a goodie. I reread TMM (as fans like to call it) at least once a year. The information detailed inside is simple - probably too simple for someone who has had any experience with personal finance. A lot of Dave's suggestions don't make mathematical sense for the advanced investor, but he did not write this for the advanced investor. He wrote this for the behaviorally struggling person in relative poverty who cannot overcome their bad habits. As such, I wouldn't even categorize this as a personal finance book, more as an inspirational lecture. This was the book that got me kick-started on my "get out of debt" journey, and I always return to it when I need a quick dose of inspiration.
