Why you should read the Unofficial Guide to Beating Debt
Are you up to your ears in debt? Or are you teetering on the edge of bankruptcy? Or maybe you're just uncomfortable with your current debt load. Whatever your motivation for reading this, I think you'll find the answers to your many questions in The Unofficial Guide to Beating Debt.
But why should you buy this particular book, rather than the dozens of others that are available? There are lots of reasons. The Unofficial Guide to Beating Debt is designed to be a guidebook to help you navigate quickly through the crucial information that you need to get a handle on credit and debt. I explain the ins and outs of credit cards, debit cards, credit reports, collection agencies, non-profit debt counseling agencies, bankruptcy, and much, much more--minus the usual promotional hype.
I wrote The Unofficial Guide to Beating Debt for virtually anyone who is struggling with their debts, regardless of their income or how they got into financial difficulty in the first place. While there's no "quick fixes" to your financial problems, I offer numerous well-tested steps that you can take to put your finances back in order, and ways to avoid numerous pitfalls along the way. What's more, I've included the most up-to-date information about debt and the Internet that I've seen in any book. You'll find a vast array of online resources for help, and a considerable list of things to avoid.
The Unofficial Guide to Beating Debt does not contain a set of strict rules to follow. It's more like a roadmap for individual improvement and development. There's no incomprehensible financial jargon here. Just plain, straight talk. And a wealth of resources to help you find additional information fast. I hope you find it helpful.
