Product Description

Amazon Review

Millions of consumers have become trapped in a spiral of debt, but there is hope. If you want to free yourself from the shackles of debt, this book is for you--it can help you "get out of debt, stay out of debt and live prosperously". Jerrold Mundis writes in a friendly, engaging style, urging readers to stop the cycle of spending. Mundis knows what he's talking about--he, too, was once thousands of (US) dollars in debt and didn't know where to turn. Anecdotes from Debtors Anonymous folks, plus multiple examples from the writer's own life and ledgers, make How to Get Out of Debt an encouraging read, not a condescending one. Once you start your program, you may want to periodically reread some chapters for inspiration or fun. --Jake Bond --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

From the Inside Flap

With up-to-the-minute information . . . And an all-new preface by the author!
Out of the red . . .
- Do this month's bills pile up before you've paid last month's?
- Do you regularly receive past-due notices?
- Do you get letters threatening legal action if immediate payment is not made?
- Do the total amounts of your revolving charge accounts keep rising?
Into the black . . .
Whether you are currently in debt or fear you're falling into debt, you are not alone. Sixty million Americans--from doctors to secretaries, from executives to the unemployed--face the same problem and live under the same daily stress. Based on the proven techniques of the national Debtors Anonymous program, here is the first complete, step-by-step guide to getting out of debt once and for all. You'll learn:
- How to recognize the warning signs of serious debt
- How to negotiate with angry creditors, collection agencies, and the IRS
- How to design a realistic and painless pay-back schedule
- How to identify your spending blind spots
- How to cope with the anxiety and daily pressures of owing money
- Plus the three cardinal rules for staying out of debt forever, and much more!
This book is neither sponsored nor endorsed by Debtors Anonymous. A recovered debtor, the author is intimately familiar with the success of the Debtors Anonymous program.

This book was recommended to me 12 years ago when I was £30,000 in debt with no assets whatsoever and on the point of bankruptcy. It turned my life around completely (if the author is reading this, I would like to say a long overdue thank you).
My first reaction on reading the book was one of total relief. Whilst newspapers and magazines occasionally address the subject of a little light overspending at Christmas, I had never come across anything that dealt with large-scale debt. The book begins with a number of examples of others who had large debts and worked their way out of it. No miracles, no bankruptcies, just a lot of honesty with oneself and determination to take responsibility. The book is written by an American. Don't let that worry you. The principles are the same whichever side of the Atlantic you're on.
The author goes on to explain the psychology of debting. Looking back I realise I overspent for psychological reasons. Trying to keep up with others, compensate for perceived deprivations etc. Realising this helped me get a hold of my finances.
The rest of the book provides practical step-by-step help with dealing with creditors, managing your money (no matter how little you think you have - I was earning £14K p.a. at the time) so as to be able to repay your debts without feeling massive deprivation.
It truly put me back on to a path that allowed me to take control of my finances, repay all my debts, recover my dignity and have a decent life. Twelve years on I have no debts and have a lovely home.
If you are in debt and wondering whether to buy this book, I urge you to buy it, read it, re-read it and put the principles into practice. I promise it really can be done.

Ok so you may have some debt, but this book will change your attitude to money for the better, allowing you to escape the debt trap and still live! All you have to do is be serious about achieving the end goal and actually follow the advice offered. There are tasks that will help you view money and life in a different light. It shows you how to analyse your spending and turn the results in to a proper budget tailored made for you, using a very simple system. That, along with making a commitment not to debt on a daily basis can only help anyone get back on a serious sound financial footing, without feeling deprived.
I think this could be a good book for people with serious debt problems, as it gives very good information on drawing up a debt repayment plan based on YOUR budget, and invaluable advice on dealing with creditors, allowing you to take control again.
It is also useful for people that want to take more control of their finances, like I did and pay off that niggly credit card! There is a lot of advice and examples and whilst the whole book may not apply to your every situation, and I certainly found the parts I used very enlightening and empowering.
You have nothing to lose ,except your Debt!

This really is a simple but very inspiring book. The 'lessons' in it should be taught to all people as they take on their first job. It will be the best money you have ever invested. I am on the road to no debt, my friend has also read the book and is doing well too. Both of us spent too long in the past looking at ways to earn more money (which isn't a problem) - but first learn to manage what you have got, this book will show you how without a doubt. If you can't afford it get a copy from the library. Good luck and God bless you.

I needed help and was ready to change my overspending ways. This is important becuase if you cant admit this to yourself nothing will help you, except maybe bankruptcy - which is so NOT a good idea. This book was exactly what I needed to back up my decision to take my financial position into my own hands. I knew how much I owed (27K) but I didnt know how I was going to sort it out. I have taken one star off because of the Americanisms, but other than that it was full of good advice and encouraging and not at all patronising or blaming. If you need £ help and you dont know where to start, this is a good book and well worth the money. I have recommended it to 2 of my friends who find themselves with too much month at the end of the money.

This book goes beyond the simple basics. Spend less than we earn? Yeah we know that - but what is it that can turn what we know into what we can do?
Mundis gives advice on practical ways to run your finances but also explores the psychology behind debting. He distinguishes all the little ways in which we relate to money that serve to disempower us. When it eventually becomes clear to us WHY we do what we do it is then in our power to overcome those bad habits with a greater degree of confidence.
Want training in how to catch yourself entering a destructive piece of behaviour, as well as a structured approach to recovery and advice on how to pay your debtors on your own terms? This is the book

This book was written by an American for an American audience so some small sections (to do with bankcruptcy) aren't relevant to the British reader. Some parts are also a little dated (it was written around the time debit cards were being introduced) but aside from that it is an invaluable read.
It gives positive advice on how to get out of debt, looks into reasons why people go into debt in the first place (that was a real eye opener) whatever their personal income and how to change negative perceptions of your self and situation.
For the first time in a long time I felt positive and in control of my finances. I also felt a lot better about myself.
I recommend this book to anyone who wants to change - it contains small and relatively easy steps that can make a long term difference.
