‘Breaking Free From Broke’ by George Kamel becomes No.1 bestseller

JANUARY 30, 2024

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- George Kamel, co-host of “The Ramsey Show” is now a bestselling author. His first book, “Breaking Free From Broke” topped the bestseller list this week. In it, Kamel draws on his lived experiences to reveal the myths and lies we’ve come to believe about personal finance.  
“I had one goal with “Breaking Free From Broke:” write a book about money that doesn’t feel like a root canal,” said Kamel. “Whether you’re 25 or 65, it’s everything you never learned about money but wish you did. It’s an easy read filled with humor, research, empathy, and hope. It’s very much possible to build wealth in America today, but it starts with learning how to rise above the system keeping you broke.”   
Following a proven plan, Kamel went from broke to a millionaire in under 10 years. Pairing pop culture with humor, wit and well-researched data, Kamel breaks down what’s holding Americans back when it comes to: 

  • Credit scores.  

  • Credit cards. 

  • Student loans. 

  • Car loans. 

  • Mortgages. 

  • Marketing and consumerism, and more.
