The Total Money Makeover Workbook, by Dave Ramsey

The Total Money Makeover Workbook, by Dave Ramsey


On its own, I'd probably give this the same 3 stars I gave The Total Money Makeover, but with said book, I have to rate this 1 star.

I see why Dave is rich if all he does is sell the exact same book in multiple ways. This is no different from TTMM except that this one includes worksheets to fill out words and numbers, a lá open-book tests. He'll give a page or so of the same info in TTMM, repeated practically verbatim, then have you fill out the percentages or missing words on a worksheet to follow.

For people who learn best by filling out forms, I'd suggest this book INSTEAD of The Total Money Makeover. I do not recommend both books together at all. It's redundant and completely unhelpful. I skipped most of the “worksheets”. What good budgeting worksheets are included are also found at the back of the main book, so there's really nothing to set this workbook apart at all.
