Get Out of Debt Like the Debt Heroes: How 21 Ordinary People Paid Off Over $1.7 Million in Debt Kindle Edition
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

The only problem- what makes it a 4 star instead of a 5- is that the links don't take you to the story you expect to read but it could take you to the website where you can purchase the books they sell, or the website where you have to hunt for the story you expected to find. It would have been better to have put a condensed story in the chapters- or the whole story as they seriously aren't that long- than to have links going to other places that what you would expect.
Needless to say, I felt totally cheated with this book. Even if they claim not to be your regular money "Self-help" book, this book is just that. The heroes whose stories I was so interested in and looking forward to reading were condensed into a short bio with nonsense like "your favorite money mistake." Ugh for that kind of experience I would read a magazine not a book.
Because this book is a money self-help book (even though they deny it), they offer a lot of advise to managing money. This was not the main reason why I got this book so I browsed quickly, they seemed to be your usual advise which is fine. I was just really interested in the personal side of finance and this book promised it but failed to deliver.
I gave it a one star because the read was a one-star level. The title is misleading. I would have loved to know how on earth one of the heroes paid off 300K on student loans in 2 years. Wouldn't anyone like to know that!! But good luck finding that out with this book.
This is where the book succeeds: where many debt gurus show you one way to do things and tell you it is the only way, the authors of Debt Heroes show you 21 examples of how people paid off their debt and show you ways you can use some or all of those examples in your journey to paying off debt. As they show us, there is no one-size-fits-all solution to getting out of debt. And that's OK. All you need to do is find the one way that works for you - and this book can help you find that direction.
If you are in debt, I encourage you to read this book. It will give you some direction and help you get started in your debt pay-off journey!
Get Out of Debt Like the Debt Heroes: How 21 Ordinary People Paid Off Over $1.7 Million in Debt is a great read in that the book does a great job of kick-starting that process of behavior modification by giving some wonderful and inspiring real world examples of how everyday people have made changes in their behavior, kicked debt to the curb and changed their lives in the process.
The book is one of those books that should be recommended reading as people start the process of getting out of debt because it can help to get them motivated as they begin the long slow process of turning their financial lives around.
