I liked how this book was easy to read and apply. It's filled with easy to apply suggestions and fill in sheets. Diagrams in each chapter make it really easy to understand by seeing exactly what the author is explaining. The first 42 pages of the book are filled with examples and how to organize and put together a budget for your family. We have been using Mr. Burkett's system for controlling our finances for the last 3 1/2 months and have notices quite the improvement. We understand what is going where, why and how better after taking several of his suggestions and applying them. His book has really opened up some confused things for us and helped us get more organized financially. I think we are being more faithful and prudent with what the Lord has blessed us with by reading this book and applying it. Mr. Burkett has a gentle but firm way to show you how to gain control over your finances - it was really good for me. : ) I'd recommend this book if you need a little help gaining ground. It's easy to change things up in it just a bit for you own unique situation.

I use the Family Budget Workbook to assist people in churches who are struggling financially. This is an excellent tool with east to follow worksheets that provides the structure to establish and maintain a family budget.
I found this book to be very informative, easy to understand with many good examples and charts to further illustrate key points. It is a good reference book to use when teaching a class on basic budgeting skills.
