Editorial Reviews

Review

Kirkus Reviews, December 2012:
In this guide, Sutton (Run Your Own Corporation, 2012, etc.) offers recommendations for avoiding and solving debt problems.

The author begins by asserting that “the credit industry actively entices all comers, especially the young and inexperienced.” In the first part of this book, he goes on to offer some overall guidelines for dealing with consumer debt. In Chapter Four, he explains a 10-step strategy, along with sample worksheets, used by one couple who “never seemed to make a dent” in the amount they owed. The author makes recommendations about debt consolidation and includes a lengthy chapter, “Getting Help,” that thoroughly explains the different kinds of bankruptcy and the process of borrowing against a 401(k). The second part of the book looks at specific kinds of debt, ranging from the timely mortgage troubles to tax debt. A section on student loans, for example, includes eight remedies for dealing with overwhelming loan payments. Sutton’s chapter on debt collectors asserts that negotiating with collection agencies is “one of the most important skills you can learn and hone.” The handbook’s third part deals primarily with credit reporting agencies, credit reports and how they’re compiled, and credit repair. Throughout, the author presents stories of real-life predicaments that enliven what might have otherwise been bone-dry material. For example, “Credit Reports” describes the years-long misery of a failed entrepreneur: “Roberto...had taken some risks on a restaurant that didn’t work out.” Finally, a chapter on credit scams and good uses of credit is followed by three appendices, including a list of other helpful books and websites.

A fact-packed, easy-to-navigate resource for consumers concerned about debt.

From AudioFile April, 2013

The Rich Dad brand of financial self-help books is known for being accessible to the average listener. Their personal relatability comes across in the narration of this volume. There are some surprise moments, such as when the listener hears Kim Kiyosaki explain in her own voice an aggressive debt repayment strategy. Sutton and Stratton deliver the content as though they were friends explaining these concepts to the listener in his or her own living room. The variation in tone, pitch, and emphasis keeps the listener engaged even during the myriad technical details on finances. There are also interview segments, taken from sessions with financial experts. M.R. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine

Sutton does an excellent job of explaining the credit system, how different debt affects it, how to get out of debt most quickly, and why being free of bad debt allows you to use good debt to your advantage.

Some of the advice is really common sense, but it's laid out in such a way to help you figure things out. Valid tips about the how and why of debt. I think I knew most of the info, but needed to read it all laid out like this for it to really make sense.

Everything I needed to know about getting out of debt was in this book. From debt consolidation, credit repair and debt management to credit scores and the credit bureaus, it was all clearly explained.

The advice is sound, but written terribly. Seek other financial help books.

This is definitely one of my favorite how-to business books. It helps to know what to do to improve your credit score - especially after a hardship - which I personally experienced with a job loss and medical bills a few years ago. I wish I had read this book back in my college years. It would have saved me many sleepless nights! I think every young adult should read this one.

Garrett Sutton's "ABC's of Getting Out of Debt" is unique among debt books. It doesn't talk down to the reader. It talks about the health and psychological challenges of debt. And it provides concrete advice for how to deal with your challenges. While many other books offer form letters to write and platitudes about debt this book gets into the meat of the topic. And it helpfully talks about once you've solved your problems how to then use debt to your advantage. This is really an outstanding book!!
