First, let me say that this book makes sense and there is nothing in it that I disagree with. Having said that, if you already own The Automatic Millionaire and you are do not need a motiviational kick in the pants to keep going during this gut wrenching recession, then my advice would be to do the plan from the Automatic Millionaire and you will finish rich. In my opinion, The Automatic Millionaire is the best book on Personal Finance and the best plan I have come across. I have read many books on the subject, but for my money The Automatic Millionaire really is a no fail plan.
However, if you are like many poeple I know (including myself), although you will probably not learn anything new from this book, the motivation that this book provides to get back up after losing faith in the system is more then worth the price of this book.
This book has many, many excerpts from his other books, it really is the best of put into 10 steps. I love David Bach and he...

I think that this book is most beneficial to people between 25 to 40 giving them a great start on a successful financial future. For those swallowed up in credit card debt there were excellent suggestions on how to get on your feet again and to have good credit which is important if you want to get anywhere in life. I liked his different...
The book of the week was Start Over and Finish Rich by David Bach. I just wrote this entire blog post and the internet deleted the whole things. Since I am on the road right now, I am going to give the cliff notes on what I just wrote. Bach is a great writer and I think he has fantastic ideas. Here is what you need to do to Finish Rich...
Pay off Your Bad Debt
Create a Snowball method to pay off your debt. Once you pay off one credit card, pay the next, and next... until they are all paid off. Start at square one and then only use credit cards if you have the ability to pay them off at the end of the month.
Build up 3-6 months of emergency living in a savings account. No risk and very liquid.
Bach likes 401(k)s but I am not a big fan. I think you should max out any match your company offers with a 401(k) and then put the rest into a Roth. Historically, taxes have increased not decreased. So...
