I enjoyed reading this book and generally concurred with the author, who pulls no punches in forcing the reader to look at how he/she has gotten to the position where the advice in the book is warranted (meaning, some stranger didn't rack up those debts, YOU did it all by your little self and now you need to deal with it). It's hard, sometimes, to honestly admit things like that to oneself, but if you want to follow the author's plan, you really need to. This book will be most helpful for those looking to live WITHOUT credit cards, etc., but fear what might happen if they go that route -- the author gives clear instructions on how to live without the anxiety of bills looming every month, how NOT to live paycheck to paycheck, etc. Worth a read if you have debt, even if you aren't willing to give up the plastic in your wallet.

This book will help you get an idea of where you really are financially. It forces you to stop making exscuses and see what you are spending money on and why you might be struggling. The book then takes you step by step through making changes. It helps you to priortize what you want/should be spending and saving. Then it helps you figure out how to get there. My husband and I have started to follow the advice in this book. So far so good. It has helped open up a dialog between the two of us where there used to just be arguments and accusations. The truth is hard to deny. Especially when it's on paper.

First on Princess and then Til Debt Do Us Part. She is inspiring in a take-no-bs kind of way. Watching the show was the push I needed to get rid of my own crappy debt (which was actually not even mine, it was my ex's on my card, which made me even more mad about it). I was almost done paying off when I got the book, which then inspired me to the finish line. I have been debt free for just over a year now, and I cannot tell you how freeing it is! I plan on going back to the book for a refresh to remember why I'm doing this (emergency fund, vacation fund with the kids). I am a single mom of 2 school age kids and if I can do this, you can too! Side note: Princess deals with spoiled little brats who overspend their parents' money, but it also gives good cures for this bad behavior. I've used some of the Gail "challenges" on my tween daughter when her behavior was getting out of control, and guess what? No more attitude. Would recommend Gail all around.

Gail presents this material with her style of knock-you-around common sense. I recommend it for anyone looking to get out of debt, stay debt free, or just wanting to find ways to trim the fat from their budgets and save for the future.
She will help you to find money that you didn't realize you had bleeding from your wallet each month. She will shake you awake on what credit card companies are doing to leech away at your paycheck. She helps the reader take back what is theirs. Money represents the worker's life. Why give that to a bank or credit card company?
This book is very easy to read and understand. For anyone who feels hopeless in their finances, or just wants to get a handle on where their money is going, I highly recommend this book.

This is one of the best books I have ever read if you are serious about getting out of debt. If you follow the hard-nosed advice given in this book your life will be so completely changed for the better. It reminds me of the quote by Brian Tracy to find out what successful people do and do that over and over and you will get the same results they do. Do not bother to read this book until you are so tried of being broke and disgusted that you are really ready to do whatever it takes to make a change in your life.

I love Gail's shows Til Debt Do Us Part and Princess. I do however agree with some of the small things. I am an avid follower of Dave Ramsey and would recommend his book as far as a plan to get out of debt and build wealth. Gail's book was great in getting me motivated again and in helping me align my values with my money.

I love Gail's show and her book is even better. A little bit of it is confusing since its aimed at a Canadian audiance (universal healthcare?). She's smart and no nonsense. I was seeing myself slip into debt before reading her book but after reading her book and following her plan for three months I was back on track.

I really enjoy Gail's shows and was not disappointed with the quality of the advice she gives here. I love the section on I will be purchasing more of her books. I thoroughly enjoy her style---practical, honest and no fluff.

I love her TV show and the book had a lot of good info. My only complaint was that the material was a little disorganized. It seems like it jumped around on topics a little. I would still recommend the book. Watch her show for good examples of people in trouble.

I am an impulsive money spender, anything from buying every color sweater to going to the casino. This book has helped me pay off two credit cards, and establish a budget. Just listing the expenses and writing down the interest and rates was an eyeopener. I took a hard look at my debit card spending and changed a lot of things based on what she indicated. I have not left my debit card at home but that is going to be my goal for New Years, slowly working my way to completely leaving at home, one day a week now and hope to be at completely leaving at home by the beginning of 2014. I can see the difference in how I spend money, less trips to the stores and casino. Just writing down what I spent money on and keeping receipts that I looked at on a daily basis stopped several trips and made me focus on less sporadic spending and how much less I could live with or didn't use--cable channels replaced with Netflix, reduced bill by $40. I wish I had been aware of this ten years earlier, I would be debt free and vacationing. As it is, I foresee that I will be completely debt free in three years or less. If I continue to do what she says I can achieve freedom from debt. Thanks Gail Vaz-Oxlade.
