Format: Paperback
My daughter was in a serious car crash and has been unable to work or to pay her bills. We have been helping her as much as possible and finally talked her into starting over as her creditors have been calling constantly. We talked her into filing a Chapter 7 bankruptcy and then I went and purchased this book for her. It's called a "bankruptcy kit", which one would assume would have all the forms, etc.
The book was typical lawyer [garbage] and didn't speak of filing "yourself" at all but talked about "discuss this with your lawyer". Then, I checked the book for the proper forms to use and these in the book are unable to be copied and the author suggests contacting the law records company but doesn't give an address. I was VERY disappointed and frustrated and would tell people that to purchase it, is a waste of money. I am now going to order another, highly recommended book on bankruptcies, with forms you can use, and information to help you do it all yourself.

Mr. Ventura has once again provided us with pertinent and timely information on the subject of bankruptcy. In this book he explains everything you need to know about bankruptcy in concise and uncomplicated terms that anyone can understand. If you are familiar with his other works, you know that he is an advocate for consumers personally taking charge of their credit history and destiny. Here, he candidly provides sound reasoning cautioning the reader to seek professional advice when considering bankruptcy. The extremely complicated nature of today's laws dictate avoidance of "do it yourself" kits. I applaud Mr. Ventura for his honesty in this very comforting and informative book.

When a friend of mine was considering bankruptcy, I helped her choose a book to read that would explain the process in simple terms and explain what to look for in a bankruptcy attorney since she and I recognized the dangers of doing her own bankruptcy. She ended up purchasing this book because of its straightforward explanations, compassionate advice and helpful resources. Although going through a bankruptcy is never easy, this book helped alleviate my friend's fear and confusion.

The Bankruptcy Kit is an extremely helpful and informative book on an issue that is sometimes very confusing for the average person to deal with and understand. This book puts all of the neccessary information into layman's terms, allowing the reader to easily understand the neccessary steps that need to be taken. After reading this book I felt more at ease and informed on this topic and no longer felt intimidated to speak with an attorney. I looked at other books on bankruptcy, but I had to look up every other word just to understand the material. Every other book on bankruptcy seemed like it was written in a foreign language. The Bankruptcy Kit is the ONLY easy to read book on this topic that I have found. After reading this book I did not need to look into this issue any further because I knew all of the things I needed to do to deal with my problem. I want to thank the author, John Ventura, for connecting with all of the people out there who do not know much on bankruptcy, but who have to deal with it. I would recommend this book to anyone needing advice on how to deal with this issue.- Stephanie Gilles

All my questions were answered which then helped me to get started. What appears to a difficult & complex matter is easily defined and laid out in simple terms. Mr. Ventura is to be commended for his straightforward approach as he discusses the necessary details. Fron what I eventually learned, this book sets the stage to plan a course of action and helps one to intelligently interact with a lawyer, but professional assistance (a lawyer) is best needed to complete the bankruptcy process.
