5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read About the Credit Card Debt, November 7, 2010
This review is from: The Skinny on Credit Cards: How to Master the Credit Card Game (Perfect Paperback)
This weekend I read six of Jim Randel's "Skinny on" books--creativity, credit cards, direct sales, the housing crisis, real estate investing (part 1) and networking.

These books use the Japanese writing style known as Magna. The author researches his topics and reduces the subject down to a one to one and a half hour read that simplifies the concepts in easily understandable stories. Following the illustrated stories he provides a quick summary of the points to remember. He then lists a further reading section and recommends specific books for those that want the fine details.

The Skinny on Credit Cards: How to Master the Credit Card Game should be prior to accepting any credit card agreement. It provides easy to understand useful information that can keep the reader out of credit card troubles before it happens and detailed information on how to get out of credit card debt. The author provides useful websites for those looking for help in reducing their credit card debt.

This book is extremely informative, a time savers and a fun read. Don't be fooled by the stick figured illustrations. This is a serious book about a complex subject written in an easy to understand format.

I am so glad I read The Skinny on Credit Cards. I will take the author's tips and will recommend this book to my friends and family.

With the way CC debit is currently out of control with most Americans, maybe this should be a mandatory read. :) We got out of the CC mess a few years back. Best decision we ever made.

Thanks for the positive feedback 365andMe.

I just love these skinny on books. They get the message across in about an hour in an an easy fun format.

CC debt is really out of control. Most of us got into debt when we could write the interest off on our taxes. After the tax breaks went away we all got a better look at reality.

We are still trying to get free from that elephant in the room. I am glad your are out of the mess.

Thanks for the post.

Tom
