My Favorite Books About Debt Reduction And Credit

After writing about (and reading about) debt reduction for almost three years, I’ve amassed quite a collection of books about the topic. I thought it might be helpful to present my personal ‘Top 3′.

If you click on any of the links below, and make a purchase from Amazon, I’ll make a little bit of money. If you don’t want to buy the books, I recommend that you head to your local library and see if you can find them there. Either way, these books are on my personal ‘must read’ list.

The Total Money Makeover: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness


  • This book, quite literally, changed my life.  I know that there are some people who do not like Dave Ramsey, but I think that he speaks in a way that ‘regular’ folks can understand.  I will, forever, be grateful for for this book.  That might sound a little corny, but it’s true, nonetheless.

Debt Free Living

  • Years ago, I started listening to Larry Burkett on the radio. (Larry, sadly, passed away a few years ago, but his books and writings are still relevant.)  This book is strongly influenced by Larry’s Christian-faith (and it’s better for it, in my opinion).  I have friends who still use Larry’s budgeting techniques.

Debt-Proof Your Marriage: How to Achieve Financial Harmony (Debt-Proof Living)

  • Mary Hunt always finds practical ways to inspire and inform.  I received one of her books years ago, as a wedding present, I think.  I WISH that I would have read it, way back then.  I could have saved myself from so many financial headaches.
