I've read quite a few books on getting rid of debt and making your financial situation better. I've read a few that came highly recommended, but they just didn't seem to fit for my personality, my family, etc. From the very beginning of this book I felt like this book seemed more practical than others. I think is was the way Mary Hunt tells you that these are things you need to do, but doesn't seem to pressure you to do them the way others do. She didn't seem to make me feel guilty if I couldn't start out with a certain amount, even $1 a week is something. I just seemed to feel less stress and pressure as I was reading her book. Let's face it, if you are dealing with money issues you are already stressed and feeling the pressure (LOL) Reading books that make you feel more of that aren't helpful. I really felt that she was saying most of the same things that other books said, but it was just the way her words came across to ME. I think it's a great book, something to hang onto and go back to read again and again for those little tidbits that you didn't quite pick up on the first time.
* I was given this book free for my honest review.
