An Investment in Peace of Mind,
This review is from: The Skinny on Credit Cards: How to Master the Credit Card Game (Perfect Paperback)
In easy to understand non technical terms Jim Randel discusses the complex issues associated with credit card financing. "The Skinny of Credit Cards" helps the reader understand how to avoid the pitfalls of incurring credit card debt and how to make the credit card a tool for enhancing their lifestyle.
Jim Randel narrates the story of Billy and Beth, a typical young couple, who have run up $ 25,000 in credit card debt. Using the familiar format of the "Skinny On" series the book uses illustrations created by Malinda Nass to accompany the narrative with stick figure drawings, humorous dialog, and summary statements which give concise, yet a comprehensive distillation of hours of research and reading. The quotes and references are well documented and include a list of resources for future reading or study.
Key principles are presented, reviewed, and reiterated in summary statements. I am impressed with the amount of information I have assimilated and retained in each of the "Skinny On" books which I have read. I find the books ideal for ready reference in my home office library.
I highly recommend "The Skinny On Credit Cards" for anyone wanting to:
Escape from credit card debt, improve their credit score, lower their interest rate, avoid paying fees, and identify credit company tricks. I consider reading and applying the principles presented in the book as an investment in peace of mind.
