    One thought on “Financial Peace Revisited”

    1. 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 ca [...]

    2. 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. Th [...]

    3. "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 more than flipped through it were it not for my reading group.I might reference his categorical generalizations of the financial decis [...]

    4. Common sense and practical financial information and advice that most people alreadyknow , 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.

    5. 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.

    6. Great read! Lots of tips and tricks about handling money. Definitely a good follow up to Total money makeover.

    7. 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 more.

    8. I had to read this for school but I really enjoyed it. It's definitely a book that has helped me understand money a little better and I HIGHLY recommend that every person read it.

    9. 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. [...]

    10. I really do love this programI need to figure out a way to manage this and do all of the financial things that are really necessary when we all die.

    11. This is one of the classic layman personal finance manuals, focusing on getting out of debt, reducing spending, saving for a rainy day, and building a retirement nest egg. Ramsey's advice is for the most part solid, although he can be extreme with his anti-debt stance (he even wants you to pay off your mortgage ASAP). His investment advice is iffier and betrays some basic but common misunderstandings of the way the stock market works, but is mostly harmless. I would be comfortable recommending t [...]

    12. I would like to list here the "baby steps" toward financial peace listed in chapter 21, because that's really all anyone needs to read of this book to get started, but I'm afraid that would violate Mr. Ramsey's copyright, and I won't do that to anyone, especially Mr. Ramsey and his wife, who I respect. Yes, the entire program is founded on Christian belief, which includes tithing to one's church. If you're a pagan like me, you may choose to tithe to charities that provide food, clothing, shelter [...]

    13. 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, more 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 b [...]

    14. If someone is in dire straits financially, this book is invaluable for tips, strategy and plain common sense for savings and dumping debt. His baby steps for financial peace are applicable to anyone in any circumstance, especially the emergency fund in a money market account and the debt snowball. However, I do believe that he is legalistic in some of the minute details of those steps. For someone who has never paid a penny of credit card interest in 12 years, but who enjoys free money from the [...]

    15. Dave Ramsey knows what it's like to have it all. By age twenty-six, he had established a four-million-dollar real estate portfolio, only to lose it by age thirty. He has since rebuilt his financial life and, through his workshops and his New York Times business bestsellers Financial Peace and More than Enough, he has helped hundreds of thousands of people to understand the forces behind their financial distress and how to set things right-financially, emotionally, and spiritually.In this new edi [...]

    16. There are few books that are as straight and to the point about money, and getting out of debt as this one. I read A LOT of books on how to get out of debt, but honestly, this is the only one that worked. More importantly, Dave Ramsey has the personal experience in applying what he teaches, and although there aren't any "smoke and mirrors," if you do what he says, I think you will agree that this is by far the best book on building wealth, paying off debts AND living on a cash only system. From [...]

    17. Although I'm not 100 % agreed on what Dave Ramsey said but I found that collection worth reading or even listen to it on your way to work . I enjoy it very much specially he told us a wonderful stories such the story of orange in negotiation section . He had lots of ideas on budgeting like envelope for every monthly expenses " I tried it & it work !!" . The last story he says it about giving to the poor which happen to his amazing little child was superb " I cannot stop my tears ". Dave was [...]

    18. 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 more than willing to share what I have learned and help you get t [...]

    19. I read this book after I began listening to Dave Ramsey. Now I am rereading it while leading his Financial Peace University. The information in this book is worth millions of dollars if you get it. There's no reason any one can't become a millionaire. I highly suggest going thru this book and FPU.

    20. If everyone would get out of debt and stop paying intrest to creditors, there would be so much money freed up to do good in the world.

    21. very good. could use some detailed scenarios that might come up with budgeting like dealing with biweekly paychecks.

    22. If I had only been taught these steps in jr. high and high school I would be independently wealthy today. Ramsey is a money genius.

    23. More than 10 years ago, my husband and I went through Financial Peace University at our church, and it truly was life-changing. It put us on the same page financially and got us on track to dig out of the hole our poor decisions had created. Later, I tried to listen to Dave's radio show and found it a bit off-putting. I couldn't quite handle the patronizing tone and mean jabs that seemed to be a part of every show. As a result, I haven't read or heard anything by Dave in a while. However, I am n [...]

    24. I listen to Ramsey’s radio show on occasion, and found this book didn’t provide much that was new. That’s sort of his point, that attaining financial peace is simple, if difficult.There are many pearls of wisdom here. A simple system for getting out of debt, explanations of different kinds of insurance, and investment advice, are paired with chapters on developing sales resistance and bargaining. What hurts the book are some outdated assumptions. Outdated information is expected; this isn [...]

    25. After coming fresh from Total Money Makeover, I dove headfirst into Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace Revisited. If you are already familiar with Ramsey's work, then the ideas presented here should be of little surprise to you. He repeats a lot of talking points you will have likely read before: save up $1,000 for emergency fund, pay off your debts starting with the smallest first, don't use credit cards, and so on. However, he goes in to much more depth in this book compared to Total Money Makeover [...]

    26. This one I give five actual stars. The book is good and the principles are even better. I like it much better than his other book - Total Money Makeover. This book is more about the "why" to get your financial house in order than TMM. Favorite quotes:Measure your wealth not by the things you have, but by the things for which you would not take money. p21 - an old adage without a source noted Money is active, and you must keep managing it and moving it no matter how much you attain. p28Good thing [...]

    27. Generally sound advice, but investment returns of 12% - a fact the author repeats regularly - are fantasy in 2017 and should not be used as assumed returns in any financial plan. It might happen from time to time, but in no way build your plan around this. That would be madness.Also, charges on mutual funds do matter. They might not matter to you in a rising market if you are seeing 10% plus returns, but when returns are lower and in line with inflation you better believe that those extra fracti [...]

    28. Straightforward and fairly useful. My dad recommended that I read this after receiving an inheritance from a family member, and while it certainly isn't the most exciting read in the world, I admit to gaining some valuable, practical knowledge. Although I had to wade through some corny jokes and a lot of obvious material of which I already am aware, the book ultimately felt worth reading. Not all of Ramsey's advice is applicable to me and his writing has a Christian focus, but he means well in h [...]
