HASH(0x901b1024) out of 5 stars Practical, easy to read and down right funny 11 Jun. 2001
By Sheri O. Zampelli - Published on
Format: Paperback
My chances of becoming debt-free by 30 have passed. However, as I perused the aisles of my local bookstore in search of a common sense book about getting out of debt, this one was clearly the winner. The book is filled with common sense advice on how to cut expenses and prepare for the future. It's all outlined in an easy-to-read fashion and delivered with a witty sense of humor. The authors offer a variety of on-line resources which I promptly accessed as I read through the chapters.
Prior to reading the book I was sure I had analyzed my budget completely and was paying off as much of my debt as possible. However, after reading some of the stories and examples in the book, I reworked my figures and discovered an extra $200 a month I can contribute to debt-reduction.
Anthony and Cluck have a "come on, you can do it" attitude that makes debt reduction seem a little less painful. I sure wish I had this book when I was twenty-something. However, with a little motivation I was able to establish my own debt-free day which will be well before I'm 40. Some of us take longer to learn. Wherever you are on your debt reduction efforts, this book can help.

HASH(0x901b1078) out of 5 stars Simple advice and realistic situations 17 Jan. 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
It is great to finally find a financial book that dispenses advice for people whose paychecks hover around $20,000 annually. So many people in their 20's are like those in the book -- over-educated, under-employed and in-debt as a result. This book speaks to us. My friend and I spent about 2 hours in the bookstore going over the advice in this book (we plan to buy it--when the budget allows). Some of it was common sensical but worthy of reiteration, and all of it was presented very realistically. This book covers taxes, car insurance, student loans, 401k plans, etc. I would definetely recommend it to anyone who is, as the authors put it, stumbling towards 30 one minimum payment at a time.

HASH(0x9061472c) out of 5 stars The stuff you wish they had taught you in college... 31 Jan. 2001
By Sarah M - Published on
Format: Paperback
For a subject that can potentially be as taboo as it is lethally boring... this book rocks. Q: What 24-year-old that has a social life would actually enjoy reading a finance book on a Saturday night? A: The one that has this one on their coffee table. I am a twentysomething who isn't in horrible debt, but I find myself mysteriously living paycheck to paycheck. Debt-Free By 30 doesn't talk down to me in the least to get a clue about some basic and not-so-basic money strategies, so that someday I may graduate to scary "adult" money (stocks, Roths, etc.) that celeb financial people are always writing boring books about. I'd recommend this book to anyone in my age bracket who is in debt or just needs to find ways to hold on to more of their hard-earned money. And even if you're not in debt, this book's still a trip to read.

HASH(0x901b1300) out of 5 stars Being CONSCIOUS by 30... 9 Jan. 2002
By Erin D. Howerton - Published on
Format: Paperback
Like Anthony and Cluck, I too entered my 20-something years being clueless about the hidden costs of debt. As I graduated from college and entered grad school, I realized that my increased cash flow from teaching was being eaten alive... and that this WASN'T what I expected from twice the money!!! My advice to you, dear 20-somethings (or 30 or 40 or 50): read this book. It will help you become competent and AWARE of your financial past, present, and future! After reading this book, I started talking to my friends about money issues. We all began a huge dialogue, sharing hints, tips, and pooling information. The only reason we hadn't been talking cash before was because we all thought it was a taboo subject. Now, we're all on the way to saving for our investments and our bright(er) futures!

HASH(0x901b1480) out of 5 stars Not just for twenty-somethings... 9 Jan. 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Mr. Anthony's engaging writing style offers straightforward "I've been there" financial advice along with an inviting dose of humor to help the medicine go down. As a thirty-something who experienced many financial pitfalls and learned how to handle them the hard way, I only wish a book like this was around ten years ago. Excellent advice on handling bank fees, insurance issues, credit card debt, cutting down on entertainment expenses, etc. apply to all ages. A great inspiration to get your finances and your life back in order.
