Dave Ramsey essentially takes his "Financial Peace University" videos and lays it out in book from, running through his seven "Baby Steps" for financial peace, from putting aside $1,000 in an emergency fund, to paying off debt, to building wealth & giving it away and everything in between.

I am decent with money, but friends of mine who have taken the class and swear by Dave Ramsey convinced me I would still learn more. Even if you can't take the "Financial Peace" class, this book is basically the series of videos distilled. Ramsey comes from a Christian perspective, will often quote Proverbs, and makes the argument that building wealth isn't anti-Christian - it's wise, as long as you have the attitude of a manager and don't look to money for your security. Keep in mind that it's a little easier to read if you have his voice in your head, because he writes like he talks, exclamation points and all. I will also add the caveat that some of his "getting a job" advice is extremely out of date and caution that you will want to check out other suggestions or you will appear really aggressive and out of touch (unless you're in sales, I suppose, it will probably be perfect). That being said, this is really solid information overall and a great starting point for getting your feet wet in finances, from savings to investing to retirement. I highly recommend it to folks in their 20s and 30s just starting out, but someone will be able to find useful information at any age and stage in life. ( )

This really is THE book to guide anyone through the simple steps to build wealth and become smarter with your finances. I haven't been following Dave's principles long, but they have already made a huge impact on my priorities with money and he has helped me with my faith walk. ( )
