I wholeheartedly agree with the philosophy of this book. . . and don't think I can apply it to my life.

This book reminds me a little bit of Dave Ramsey's method to being debt-free, with some differences. Overall, very easy to read and understand, excellent advice for the average consumer (who is usually in a good amount of debt) and methods on how to get out of debt. I would recommend this to anyone who still uses credit cards or carries loans.
