Wow what can I say except I have never read anything quite like Debt Cures before in my life! It was a total surprise. I can't believe this got published. Is this a 2nd grader writing a composition for a teacher who wanted information about clearing up credit card debt? Instead, out of protest he writes a book of twenty-four chapters of mostly repeat information. About sixty percent of the book is repeated over and over. What are usable lies in about thirty pages of this three hundred page book which can be found in other sources.

And where should we start? First let me tell you about my expectation based on the infomercial and the title so you can gain a perspective of where I am coming from. The title Debt Cures should suggest that Mr. Trudeau will suggest the causes of your debt, ways to reduce or eliminate your debt, give a practical resource on getting into a specific plan to eliminate your debt and create wealth (see his cover and infomercials). It is not hard to expect these from an author toting that you can eliminate your debt. Isn't it?

Well what can I say, chapter one starts out by slandering the credit card companies and their high runaway fees. Well this has been common knowledge since the 1980's. This is when the credit card companies realized that they could add fees on your amounts in addition to interest and most people did not know. I can understand his point that credit card companies use deceptive practice, so people can not understand how their balance triples within six month. His false statement through me in the first chapter because he states "you debt problems are not your fault, but the credit card company" makes me see stars. `Hey Mr. Credit Card Company thanks for twisting my arm. By the way, that means I do not have to pay.

There is one, and only one, CURE for bad credit: Stop abusing credit! To call anything else a "cure" is false and misleading. In order to cure something, you have to stop the behavior that caused it.

That being said, "Debt Cures" by Kevin Trudeau is basically useless. Sure, a couple of his ideas have probably helped a couple of people...like the ones who have spent their lives living under a rock. For the rest of us, don't waste your money.

The useful information contained in this book makes up about 1% of the book. All of it is accessible through much more reputable and reliable sources. The rest of the book is fluff, designed to play upon people's emotions, full of hyperbole and heaped with cliche'. There are exclamation points everywhere (!). On almost every page!!! In fact usually several per page!!!!!!!! [Get my drift?]

There are 3 points he offers, and this is where the marginally useful info comes in...for some of us...some of the time: 1) Negotiate directly with your creditors; 2) Keep on top of your credit reports; and 3) Refinance your home if possible, to get a better rate and/or term. He repeats these things over and over (and over and over and over...) again throughout the book. Problem is, all of these points should be common sense to anyone with, um, a wallet. And a brain. Even if one or both of those two things is small.

The rest of the book is bent on convincing the reader that the financial industry is a bunch of scum-sucking leeches. Like, DUH.

You gotta give this guy credit for one thing: HE followed his own advice. HE saw a need (people drowning in debt in record numbers) and attempted to fill it (by selling them half-baked "cures" -- snake oil, anyone?? -- to help themselves).

It is just shameful the way this "so called author" tries to get you to buy his books. This book is such a waste and please save your money. I can tell you right now that everything in that book is basic information that you can get for free on the web. There is nothing useful, original or surprising in this book. If you want sound financial advice please do your research and stay away from this guy. Suze Orman has a great selection of books with real advice. This was a real waste of money.
