The Money Answer Book by Dave Ramsey

The Money Answer Book by Dave Ramsey.
Great books for all ages. I requested this book because I have heard Dave Ramsey on the radio and I have seen him on the Fox Business Network.
A short but simple book on managing your money and how to do it. Follow the money rules and you should be able to make it. Dave Ramsey is against spending more than you have and does not like the use of credit cards.
There are chapters for debt, saving and investing, automobiles, insurance, college, real estate and more.
The author uses quotes from the Bible as well as many known and (to me) unknown people. Some quotes: "More people talk themselves into failure then talk themselves into success" Zig Ziglar, "Well done is better well said" Benjamin Franklin, "Many a man has failed because he had his wishbone where his backbone should have been Ronald Reagan and "Those who work hard will make a profit, but those who only talk will be poor" Proverbs 14:23.
This is an excellent book for a wedding present but better yet, one to give as a shower gift. It would also be a good graduation present for a high school or college graduate.
As far as Dave Ramsey is concerned, you should start young to begin to learn how to use your money and he has topics for parents.
He has a list of web sites in the back of the book for additional resources.
Everyone will learn something.
