A low credit score will increase the interest and fees you'll pay to borrow money, and might even prevent you from renting an apartment or being approved for a credit card altogether. This comprehensive how-to manual will help you rebuild your credit score and teach you how to protect it from future damage.

This book really covers many aspects of credit management, not just credit repair. Beyond a variety of topics related to credit repair, there is reliable advice on how to monitor your credit score (even if you earned good credit, mistakes or misdeeds of others can drastically lower your credit score and you might not even know it); advice on which credit cards to get and how to use them; and info on identity theft.
This book is worthwhile to virtually everyone in the US, but is especially worthwhile for a number of people beyond those with actual poor credit, such as those who will be buying a home (higher credit scores translate to lower interest on your mortgage, which can really add up) and young adults just starting their credit history (even if they don’t need or want to run up credit card bills, establishing a credit history will be invaluable when/if they ever want to purchase something on credit, such as a house).
Reliable, understandable advice. Information is presented clearly and understandably. No legal jargon beyond what you may need to know for purposes beyond reading this book. Downloadable forms are also handy.
IMHO, this is THE book for a general knowledge of credit today.
But that’s JustMe
Some are obvious, such as the pitfalls of a payday loan. Other suggestions might be new to you, such as ways to improve your credit history without the classic strategy of opening a credit card and paying it off each month.
It's easy to skim over the information that doesn't apply to you and then move on to what is important, thanks to the bold fonts.
Some good and comprehensive information about identity theft that can help anyone, not just those looking to improve their credit.
Huge listings of online resources.
The accompanying website can even provide you with local debt attorneys.
It takes a pretty well educated consumer these days to avoid scammers.
On that alone, I would recommend this book to just about anyone looking to manage their own finances.
It contains no “miracle cures” and, in fact, contains extensive warnings about so-called credit repair outfits.
This is not a quick read, either. It contains a wealth of detailed information and many forms to help you implement the suggestions contained in the book.
If you are seeking authoritative advice on repairing or improving your credit rating, this is the go-to resource. That it is now appearing in its 13th edition is testimony to its effectiveness, I think.
