This review is from: Pay It Down! From Debt to Wealth on $10 a Day (Hardcover)
Yep! If you are overpaid and fritter away your cash on extravaganzas at Starbucks and on two exotic vacations a year, leaving yourself floundering in a pool of fiscal red ink, then this is the tome for you! But, you may be too dumb for it to do any good anyhow.

However, if you are one of the average working Americans who has cut his budget to the bone and to the bone again, you will not find much here. Oh, you can send send your PDA, whatever that is, back to the store and only take ONE swell vaction a year. Well, duh...

I was particularily distressed by the health care discussion. The author has no conception how difficult it is for the average person to obtain and pay for adequate health care. Could you image how much more difficult it would be if you or your child had even the most minor health imperfection?

Frankly, I think the author makes far too much money to competently advise the common folk. Spend less. Save more. It has all been said before!

But, you can save your first ten dollars a day by checking this book out of your library and paying off your debts with the savings.

I completely agree. I read this a while ago and got nothing out of it.

I pay over 400.00 every 4 weeks for health insurance, 100.00 per week. then there are medical expenses. my husband and I both have chronic illnesses and our expenses always exceed 2000.00 per month counting insurance. I am 38 and he is 51.

I am beyond tired of the way "financial advisors" ignore people with illnesses and disabilities. they have nothing to say beyond "buy insurance before it's too late." at least the ones I have read are like this, those who write the "must read" books.

It is beyond irritating. Despite their words, they appear to be in business to help the rich get richer and they ignore everyone else.

and I am fortunate financially compared to many people I have seen in the hospital who have next to nothing.

Dave Ramsey is the only exception. He included a couple of stories of people with serious illnesses and disabilities in one book that I read.
