Great summary! thanks!
Isn't most of this info available right here on the Fool? And other places?

I'm sure that there aren't any truly unique ideas in this plan. I don't know if it's packaged the same way in other places (the financial aspects, that is). It's similar to the Fool in many respects -- both advocate getting out of debt before doing serious investing, for example. The investment strategies are different - Dave Ramsey strongly encourages a mix of mutual funds (none of which is an index fund, I believe), whereas the Fool pushes more towards index funds and selecting individual stocks with some proven approach (aka Foolish Four).

Of course, now you've got the Ramsey Plan on the Fool as well. ;-)
