Millions of consumers have become trapped in a spiral of debt, but there is hope. If you wants to free yourself from the shackles of debt, this book is for you--it can help you "get out of debt, stay out of debt, and live prosperously." Jerrold Mundis writes in a friendly, engaging style, urging readers to stop the cycle of spending. Mundis knows what he's talking about--he, too, was once thousands of dollars in debt and didn't know where to turn. Anecdotes from Debtors Anonymous folks, plus multiple examples from the writer's own life and ledgers, make How to Get Out of Debt an encouraging read, not a condescending one. Once you start your program, you may want to periodically reread some chapters for inspiration--and fun.
From Library Journal
Mundis flies a countercultural flag: debt is "wholly unnecessary," and "bankruptcy is not an option." He offers a brief discussion of formal debt-handling methods and several very practical money management techniques from his own hard-won experience. Solutions depend entirely on the use of personal resources, and many Mundis remedies would be hard to apply outside of single-person, middle-class households. Despite its narrow focus, the book's thorough coverage of the Debtors Anonymous approach makes it a useful addition to large personal finance collections.

I really enjoyed this book, and actually bought a copy for a friend as well. If you are ready to commit to doing what is necessary to get out of debt, this book is an Excellent resource.
This book addresses not only the problems created by debt, but the emotional turmoil and pain that most people go through as a direct result of their debt. I could relate to so many of the scenarios/case studies in this book as the author also delves into the psychological effects that debt can have on a person - things that you don't even realize until they are pointed out. It's almost as if a lightbulb went off (finally) and I realized why I have been unable to break free from the destructive debt cycle. It all seems like common sense but your mind becomes so clouded by years of distorted thinking that the "right" decisions never seem to be able to surface. It was refreshing to know that someone finally understood the way that I was feeling about money, debt and a whole host of other issues. It makes you see that you are not alone and not a failure. You can take your power back by making a conscious decision to stop adding to your existing debt and planning a way out even if you have to take baby steps for awhile to get there.
I have to say, I feel like this book was a godsend. In order to change something, you need to recognize it and create an action plan - which is what I am now doing. I think this book is an invaluable resource for anyone who wants to finally break free from the heavy chains of reckless spending/debt.
