Dave Ramsey's "The Money Answer Book " aims to help you answer specific questions you may have about your finances in short, one or two page responses. This book is a quick read, with real world questions regarding real world problems. It provides answers to common problems in such a way as to make the reader believe that changing their spending behaviors is possible. Having already read two of Dave Ramsey's books previously (Financial Peace, Total Money Makeover), I didn’t find much in the way of new information provided.
With that being said, I would wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone who is not ready to dive into the “deep end” of the literature on handling finances that is out there. The advice given is fundamentally solid and will help someone get out of debt, set up a budget and learn to live on less than they earn. This would also be a great high school graduation gift.
