Overall, I would say that it is very thorough and the structure is undoubtedly a help for the extremely self-motivated individual who is determined to get their finances in order. The text is peppered with americanisms, some of which don't translate very immediately into a UK framework, but on the whole most of the book is quite relevant.
As someone who deals with 'normal' investors on a daily basis, I would criticise the book for its length. It is a BIG exercise to complete the whole thing, and if one were to skip sections (eg. 'The FinishRich File Folder System') on the basis that life is too short to create thirteen labelled folders at the commencement of the process, I would then worry that I had missed something of strategic importance.
I think that this book works for a rather select group of people who are extremely self-motivated in this area. For most 'normal' folk, I would guess that something that was conceptually more straightforward, and shorter, would be more helpful. Having said that, given the generally crapulent nature of the nation's finances, I do welcome the kind of approach that David Bach has taken here. He does deserve some kind of award!

After reading a few other personal finance books (ie. quadrants, and rich dad stuff), I was disappointed in the fact that those books didn't actually instruct you on what to do, more than give you the ideas and philosophy to do things. I DID NOT need motivation, I needed a step-by-step plan to follow, and this book did just that.
I found the Automatic millionaire workbook a good tool for learning to make things more automatic (automate your bills and such, no more writing checks)but the "Finish Rich Workbook" is really the only, and best, tool you need to get started making a better life for yourself--without having to increase your income or live on noodles and government cheese.
Perfect for anyone wanting to save more, from students just out of college to families in a budget crunch.
It also gives a new perspective of what your goals and values are and how you should plan your finances to acheive your goals and BE the person you want to be.
It is very thorough and gives REAL specific information eg. myfico.com was so helpful, numbers and websites of investment companies etc.
It allows for people with all types of goals and incomes to improve thier financial knowledge and situation in thier own terms.
I have also read automatic millionare which was good too but this interative workbook will give you a kick in the pants to actually make you change the way you deal with your money. Writing it down makes all the difference.
If you've got the original book, you don't need to waste your money on this.
This book teaches money management skills that are based on one's personal values. It takes one through excercises designed to help one identify what values are important, and then based on those values develop financial goals. For example, if missionary work is an important goal, this book will help one develop a plan for saving towards that goal. Mr. Bach emphasizes that YOUR values should drive your financial planning.
