Given that this book is meant for people in debt, I think it's an effective summary of what one needs to know.

started this book today and i am on page 211 already! its a great book to purchase just to have around the house and if u are completely wiped out by debt, the steps and guidelines listed will make a lot of your dreary financial problems seem a little clearer! i actually look forward to starting my journey out of debt. Thanks Ken :-)
