There is not much new in this book. If you have read "The Total Money Makeover" you have read this book too. I would even say "The Total Money Makeover" book covers the same subjects, but in more detail. However, this book may appeal to some people because of the format where specific questions are asked and then answered, just like the radio show. I suppose you could find things faster in this book, but for me, I prefer reading everything in detail and prefer going back to the more detailed book.
The main sections of this book are as follows:
1. The Basics
2. Debt, Credit & Bankruptcy
3. Relationships & Money
5. Saving & Investing
6. 20-Somethings, College & Student Loans
9. Retirement & Estate Planning
11. Real Estate & Mortgages
Some of the questions answered in this book are:
What are the Baby Steps?
Should I help pay my sweetie's debts before we get married?
What is the secret of saving?
What are the four NEVERs of college saving?
Do I really need a will?

This is a great at-a-glance book re: simple finance. Common sense to some, but to those who aren't so money-math savvy, it's wonderful. It's a neat little gift to give & fun as a financial reminder tool.
