Summary

When it comes to money, it pays to know yourself.

This is not just another money book. Personal finance expert Rachel Cruze brings an all-new approach to the traditional money rules, and it all starts with your mindset.

Go beyond the Ramsey Baby Steps and get to the root of all of your decisions - your mind, your behaviors, and your beliefs - so you can change your money mindset for good.

You may already know how to make the right money decisions, but you probably still find yourself slipping into impulse purchases, dipping into savings, disagreeing on your budget with your spouse, and wondering “Why did I do that?!” If so, this book is for you. Rachel Cruze explains the psychology, strengths, and challenges that come with each of her brand-new Seven Money Tendencies:

  • Saver or Spender
  • Nerd or Free Spirit
  • Experiences or Things
  • Quality or Quantity
  • Safety or Status
  • Abundance or Scarcity
  • Planned Giving or Spontaneous Giving

Along with discovering where you land on the scale of Seven Money Tendencies, this book also introduces new ways to understand how your parents, your fears, and your beliefs impact your money mindset.

You’ll learn:

  • Which of the Four Childhood Money Classrooms shaped your personality
  • How the Six Core Money Fears can drive your most common money mistakes
  • Why you handle money the way you do, and what to do about it

You don't have to white-knuckle your way toward financial freedom. This book will show you how to make taking control of your money so much easier (and fun).

Its a religious - psychology book

Dont expect to find solid tips on how to handle money in this one. Its not this kind of a book .This book MORE ABOUT analysing your childhood and how its affected your money hobbit today. Also, this book talking a lot about Christianity and god will.
I think her short useful vids on her YouTube channel with solid tips are much much better.

Just get Total Money Makeover

Rachel, girl, you gotta stop this. Another book by her which I wanted to love, but after a few chapters turns into almost word for word recaps of Dave Ramsey’s Total Money Makeover. Only in the beginning does she touch how people who overspend are often trying to compensate for a messed up childhood where they had nothing nice and grew up broke, so they resort to overspending. Okay, excellent point. Then, after that it’s all breaking down Dave’s baby steps and the emergency fund, etc. You have issues, you don’t know how to manage money, you may have had a crappy childhood because you ate spaghetti differently, but now that we’ve talked about that, here’s my dad’s plan. Oh, and here’s some cute side stories about my family that are fun and metaphorical just like the stories my dad uses, but let’s talk about the Bible more in my book.

I REALLY wanted to love this book and was excited to see what it was about but in all honesty, even if you are a complete fool with money and have all kids of issues, just go with Dave Ramsey’s book. That’s all you really need. You can get the same sound advice and coaching from the original source. Sorry, Rachel.

Common sense...

Seems to be a common theme with these Ramsey books, just a small assembly of common sense ideas with constant religious references thrown in to be extra annoying... Pointless read.

Too much bible quoting

The financial ideas in this book are solid, but the frequent quotes from the Bible were too annoying and just unnecessary, as they did nothing to further her arguments. I really tried to make it through the whole book, but I couldn’t.

Keep the bible out of money books.

I should’ve known when it started with a psalm, but I endured a few chapters. Then another chapter started with a psalm and she talked about reading bike stores. Then while trying to explain different types of ppl she said some people don’t think god is abundant and will provide for all. No, I was looking for monetary suggestions not church preach.

Yes!

Rachel is smart, creative and down to earth. There are hard facts she openly talks about but lays no judgement or critical thoughts about said facts. It is worth the time to listen and the purchase! Well done Rachel!!

I loved this book so much

I enjoy when the author reads their own book and this was no exception. The context is great and there’s not too much overt religious reference (I’m not religious) for me to deal with so that was good. Great thought provoking advice and self reflection tools.
