Publisher's Summary

Dave Ramsey's New York Times best-selling guide to better living through financial security, now completely revised and updated.

Dave Ramsey knows what it's like to have it all. By age 26, he had established a four-million-dollar real estate portfolio, only to lose it by age 30. He has since rebuilt his financial life and, through his workshops and his New York Times business best sellers 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 edition of Financial Peace, Ramsey has updated his tactics and philosophy to show even more readers:

  • how to get out of debt and stay out the KISS rule of investing—"Keep It Simple, Stupid" how to use the principle of contentment to guide financial decision making
  • how the flow of money can revolutionize relationships

With practical and easy to follow methods and personal anecdotes, Financial Peace is the road map to personal control, financial security, a new, vital family dynamic, and lifetime peace.

Good info but too much religion.

If you’re not religious or aren’t Christian, this book might be a bit hard to swallow. If you can get past all the church and god references, there is great financial advice to be had here.

Buy The Total Money Makeover Instead

Good book with lots of useful information, but it's not much different from The Total Money Makeover. Mostly the same information with a little more background on Dave Ramsey, who's much better at narration than the one in this book.

Surprisingly disappointing - sorry dave

I have listened to daves other book - the total money makeover more than 40 times. I bought this book thinking it might add some additional insights, but was disappointed. The difference between the two is that in the total money makeover, dave has a very succinct programme for us listeners to follow. In financial peace, it is more of a rambling journey interspersed with religious references. Clearly dave has developed his programme over time and it shows through in the total money makeover. the other reason to recommend total money makeover, over financial peace is that dave narrates his later book. In this book it is someone else who does not portray the same passion and motivation that dave brings to total money makeover. I listen to daves book every month and despite being a brit, living in britain, the key messages are just as applicable. I am working my way out of debt using caves programme. I strongly recommend any listener to look at total money makeover rather than this book as you will be better motivated, have a clear structured programme and be more likley to get out of debt and become wealthy.

It just wasn't Dave

I have been through Financial Peace University and listened to Dave Ramsey's radio show many times. Though the information in this book is great, there is not really new information.
It wasn't that the reader was bad it just didn't have the feel of being delivered by Dave. It felt stilted after listening to FPU. Of course this is to be expected as Dave is delivering it more or less live and not reading from a book.

A Revisit to Financial Peace University

What did you love best about Financial Peace Revisited?

This edition of the Financial Peace book covers the basic principals of budgeting and cash management including establishing a workable monthly budget, the Envelope System, getting debt-free, and strategies for developing an emergency fund and long-term savings.

Dave and Sharon both share their experiences in having it all, the embarrassment and shame of losing it all, and rebuilding their financial lives step-by-step. The book is a helpful and pleasant read. I could hear Dave's "voice" in the words. If you're interested in the topic of personal finance, this is one of the books you should read. It's the kind of advice you'd get from your parents or a trusted aunt/uncle, the voice of experience.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Financial Peace Revisited?

I enjoy the "realness" of Dave and Sharon Ramsey. They share their successes, failures, and what has been learned along the way.

Making wiser choices!

I really enjoyed the tips that are offered. I am implementing some of the tips slowly, but I am excited about the end result.

Not much of an update from the original

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

This is a great book if you did not listen to "The Total Money Makeover". I thought this book was just the same information in that book in a slightly different format. It is not really updated for current times. For instance, it still talks about 18% interest in a good mutual fund.

Have you listened to any of Nick Sullivan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Nick did a great job, but he did such a good job of sounding like Dave that it was a little eerie.

Do you think Financial Peace Revisited needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Yes, and the numbers in there need to be updated for post 2009.

Great book.

The book was great the only thing I wished it was that it was updated even further. You can tell that some of the examples are obviously outdated. Otherwise a great book full of excellent principles.

I wish I had found Dave Ramsey in my 20s

My parents never taught me about money management, retirement or savings. Even though I am an Accountant, does not mean I know how to invest or management money... It just means I know how to keep track of money. Dave Ramsey has given me the confidence to stand up and make my money work for me rather than me having to chase my money around like undisciplined children.... I recommend not only his books but his YouTube and podcasts as well.

The best money management book for Christians

The narrator's style is vivid and poignant. It is very simple to get oneself through that book because it sounds more like a private conversation.
That book will remain my lifetime money management handbook.

Excellent

Compréhensible, assez détaillé pour un connaisseur et expliqué avec la simplicité nécessaire à un non initié en Finances. Narrative vivante et très proche de la réalité de tous les jours.
