My top recommendations for my clients always start with books by the 3 Daves -
- The Total Money Makeover - by Dave Ramsey
- The Automatic Millionaire - by David Bach
- The Wealthy Barber - by David Chilton
You can find links to them on my Recommended Books page to get them on Amazon.
I read all three and loved them, and their concepts are critical to getting out of debt. TTMM by Dave Ramsey talks the most about getting out of debt, and he also has a daily Podcast for free that you can find on iTunes. I used it and his "Baby Steps" to pay off $45,000 in under two years! Yes, the steps work.
A book specifically about getting out of debt and fixing your credit score, that I've heard is good is - "How to Get Out of Debt, Stay Out of Debt, and Live Prosperously." Haven't read it myself though.
And a book everyone needs to read, which talks about the flip side of debt...and the idea of creating wealthy vs focusing on debt is ...
"The Secrets of the Millionaire Mind". I loved this book.
Most of these books you can find at your local Half Price Books or on Amazon for super cheap, so start your debt journey by saving money that way!
