We all have our guilty pleasures. No one wants to talk about it. We sneak around. We come up with ways to avoid discussing it while still doing what we want. We make promises, and then break them.
This is a different type of nonfiction book discussion, one where we embark together on a journey that involves learning how to think about money, recognize our own bad habits, and gain some practical strategies for moving forward to financial security.
Please let us know ASAP if you’re interested so we can tailor the discussion to the goals of the specific participants. We could do a straightforward delve into how to use the practices of the book, a critical analysis of the techniques, or even a meta-conversation of the religious, philosophical and political implications underlying Ramsey’s approach.
The success stories speak for themselves in this book from money maestro Dave Ramsey. Instead of promising the normal dose of quick fixes, Ramsey offers a bold, no-nonsense approach to money matters, providing not only the how-to but also a grounded and uplifting hope for getting out of debt and achieving total financial health.
Ramsey debunks the many myths of money (exposing the dangers of cash advance, rent-to-own, debt consolidation) and attacks the illusions and downright deceptions of the American dream, which encourages nothing but overspending and massive amounts of debt. “Don’t even consider keeping up with the Joneses,” Ramsey declares in his typically candid style. “They’re broke!”
The Total Money Makeover isn’t theory. It works every single time. It works because it is simple. It works because it gets to the heart of the money problems: you.

Four times a year, the WUUC Book Discussion Group gathers to read and talk about a nonfiction book. You only attend the meetings about books that interest you, so we end up with a different group of participants every time. We meet on a Friday evening to connect, share a meal, and talk about a book in depth. Anyone is welcome to suggest a book and/or lead a discussion. Contact Alaine, firstname.lastname@example.org, to RSVP, suggest a book, or offer to host a future discussion.
