Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The author of How to Get Out of Debt, Stay Out of Debt and Live Prosperously here tackles the problems of another fiscally troubled group, those who are earning only enough to meet their needs. He touches on but does not treat in depth the destructive self-image that makes underearning only part of a syndrome. But he does offer advice for treating underearning, beginning with three cardinal rules: do not incur debt, do not take work that pays less than you require and do not say "no" to money, i.e., ignore opportunities to increase your income. Mundis urges drawing up a "spending plan" (not a budget, which is too constricting) and recommends such relaxation techniques as meditation and deep breathing. In what looks like padding, he also presents an adaptation of the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous.

From Library Journal

Mundis (How To Get Out of Debt, Stay Out of Debt and Live Prosperously, LJ 2/15/88) attempts to warn wage earners about the problem of underearning, defined as consistently gaining less income than is necessary for providing oneself with adequate food, shelter, and clothing for daily needs. He estimates that 20 to 30 million Americans at all levels of occupation suffer from this problem. Mundis uses the principles and practices of Alcoholics Anonymous in his consideration of underearning, addressing it on individual and family levels with practical examples and suggestions. He discusses determining a consistent spending plan, the differences between types of debt, and the 12 steps to get out of debt and avoid underearning. Readers who have experienced fiscal problems, particularly those in debt, are the audience for this title. Public and corporate libraries might also purchase for their self-help collections.

This book is changing my life.
Dennis
On the hand, if you have a pattern of never having enough money to meet your needs and live a good life, then you could very well be a chronic underearner.
A Reader
Received in reasonable amount of time. worn condition, but pretty much what was promised.

Mundis should be applauded - many of us can save, even invest, but really are not earning our true potential. Mundis begins by telling us his own story, showing us that he had a real underearning problem, but was able to conquer it. What impressed me most are his three big 'rules', such as NEVER turn down money, etc. They have helped me immensely in my own life. Also, he forces us to really take a look at how we look at money; many of us have beliefs that are really killing us financially and must be changed. A well-written, extremely helpful handbook on a problem which I just have not seen written about elsewhere.

I first read a book written by Mundis when looking for help with my cronic writer's block, and while his system didn't produce an instant cure it continues to give me a bit of understanding and support for times when the pen won't write and the keys won't move. Like many writers Mundis confesses to periods of ineritia, and underactivity, and uses the 12 Steps to help guide the underemployed and underpaid to rightful livelihood. This is not an business book in the strict sense, he's more a kindly godfather whispering good advice, and dishing out the daily chores for making a living. If you wonder why your friends always seem to have more, why raises never come to you and why you are always starting over, the answers are here; and the advice is reasonable even for people adverse or unwilling to do a 12 Step program,

This book is a great tool to use if you know you are earning less than you deserve, or have done so in the past. It helps you bring to light patterns within you that contribute to underearning, and gives practical and spiritual methods for earning more money in your life. You do not have to be a chronic underearner to benefit from this book- it can benefit anyone who has had past experiences with lack. The book will help you realize you are not alone, and there are ways to release experiences of lack and limitation in your life through spiritual and practical means. Especially helpful for people who are interested in Debtors Anonymous, or feel their debt is overwhelming. It covers the 12-step program used by Debtors Anonymous, but applies it specifically to those who underearn. A powerful self-help tool!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I bought this book as it was recommended to me as having an "under earning" problem. Initially thinking it was underemployment, under earing has more to do with long held attitudes of money and self-worth that were unconscious but were operating every day in my life. This book explains the common attitudes and how they can hold a person back from achieving solvency and prosperity. With step by step instructions, kind yet firm, it outlines how one day at a time, a person can work towards fully supporting himself or herself.

This isn't just a great book for finding tools to get out if debt, it's a great book about building wealth. A must actually. It's about letting go of all the poor habits around money and replacing them with good habits. Well written, far more practical for a fellow like me than all those get rich books, which are helpful, this is just better. I really like the notion that if we take responsibility for our life and finances, real change can happen. I was on the brink of bankruptcy. Not anymore. I don't wish to have an escape hatch, I can do this if i choose to practice the ideas in this book. I already am seeing great results! Higly recommended!
