The Money Answer Book by Dave Ramsey *Review*

This book is an Question and Answer type book about your finances.  This book is filled with over 100 questions-everything from budget planning to retirement planning or personal buying matters, to saving for college and charitable giving.  This book talks about taking "Baby Steps" to reach a financial well being so to speak. Baby Step #1 $1,000 in an emergency fund, this is our first step we need to accomplish. It also talks about how to teach your kids some money smarts which was really good information and it all makes since.This would be a great book for a graduation present. 

I would recommend this book to everyone, before they start college or even if you are ready to retire this book will help you.  When I received this book I was worried it would be a very boring read but it was quite interesting and I actually learned some things. Some of his strategies I will be starting soon. See in my family I am the one that likes to spend money and my husband hates it, so if I can start doing say the "Envelope" idea I think that maybe my husband wouldn't be so upset when I spent money and we are actually going to start the "Baby Steps" program as well.

I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their <> book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.


  1. How is this book different from "The Total Money Makeover"? Is it just the same thing said in different words? I was a little dismayed with all the religious references and testimonials that looked more like filler than anything value-added in "The Total Money Makeover". Does this book have all that filler also?

  2. I haven't read The Total Money Makeover so I don't know that answer to that. This book was questions to money and then answers. And yes this book did have the religious references as well.


Thanks for taking a look at my blog, come back soon.
