When I received Master Your Debt by Jordan E. Goodman, I was expecting a finance book similar to one authored by Suze Orman or Dave Ramsey. However, instead of advice on creating a budget, lowering expenses, and paying off debt, Master Your Debt is more about helping you navigate today's financial landscape. Goodman explains how we got into our current mess of an economy and how that has changed the way loans, mortgages, credit cards, and even student loans are handled today.

Of course in order t

Saw this at the library and it looked good....but of course I don't have time now to read this. In addition to becoming focused on being debt free, this book (by reading the flap) tells you how to master credit card debt you have based on current laws. Here's an exerpt from the front flap..

For those of you who are regular readers, you know I don't often review non-fiction, but this book has helped me, so I am definitely reviewing it. I have paid off three credit cards and reduced my overall debt by about 4000 bucks, in addition to the good debt I have analyzed and learned to handle better. Not bad for reading a book and jotting down some numbers.

The author gives clear and concise examples in ways a non-money efficient person can understand. He also gives excellent strategies that
Not an especially exciting topic, but author provides a reasonable, well-organized discussion of managing debt, with separate chapters on student loans, mortgages, credit cards, etc. Probably you'd need to go into more depth (and he provides references for where you can find it) to implement some of the trickier strategies (e.g., equity acceleration, which sounded to me like paying for virtually everything from a home equity line of credit), but for the most part it's straightforward stuff--pay ...more
The current world of debt has become very confusing. Master Your Debt can help you to understand the changes it is well written and easy to follow with lots of good information . I have read many money management books over the years but most of the information in this book was new to me. I liked how the advice is not only about how not to get in financial trouble but more importantly what to do and what not do if you are already in trouble. The book covers just about every thing from different ...more
Written two years after the recession, this book does a good job in outlining the new credit card laws, student loans, new mortgage game and how to get out of debt in layman's terms. Yes, not all of it will apply to everyone, it didn't to me but reading this book helped me understand about my finances and what I personally need to do to get out of debt. And honestly, that is really all I am looking for every time I read one of these books, how to better understand how money and finances work. So ...more

I learned very little that I didn't already know. But then, I've read a lot of personal finance books. For the newbie, this would probably be an informative book.

Overall, ok, but still skeptical about the accelerated mortgage payoff using a home equity line of credit plan recommended
We'll find out it that 5 star rating is accurate. I'm going to give this a try. See if it works. :)
This was recommended to me, and I understand why. Goodman gives tips I hadn't before heard of.
