Nashville, Tenn. — One of the most popular personal finance books in history is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a newly expanded and updated edition. “The Total Money Makeover” 20th anniversary edition by money expert and bestselling author Dave Ramsey releases today.

TMMO is named one of BookAuthority’s 20 Best Personal Finance Books of All Time and has spent more than 1,000 weeks on bestseller lists. To date, over 9 million copies have been sold worldwide, and every year, more than 400,000 readers buy the book. Ramsey’s timeless TMMO principles have helped tens of millions pay off debt, save for unexpected emergencies, invest for retirement and build lasting wealth.

“The plan is still simple, and millions of people have done it. You can solve your biggest problem with the least-complicated finance book out there,” said Ramsey. “It’s the stories of everyday people in TMMO that makes it so powerful and inspiring. They’re the real heroes. Their stories of real life-change are all the proof you need that this stuff really works.”
