The author also says that you should set up your spending plan in such a way that you're living comfortably. It won't work if you're feeling miserable. You gotta live a little for it to be sustainable in the long run.
I have been following the plan for the past few weeks and, as the author says, miracles have been happening. I really think you should apply what the book says before you dismiss this as just another financial book that just gives advice. It works, but you've got to apply what the book says.
This book was the first of many tools that helped me learn how to take charge of my financial life. As I read it, I recognized so many of the things that the people in the case studies were going through. I realized that I wasn't alone, and I wasn't an inherently BAD person. I began to realize that what was happening to me happens to everyone who lives with debt. The author demonstrated over and over that I had the power to solve my own problems. The book endowed me with a sense of hope and self respect. It gave me the courage to talk to people about my debt so I could ask for help. Eventually, I found a non profit credit counseling service that showed me how to get my loan out of default.
I am happy to say that today my student loan is current and under control. I'm not out of debt yet, but my credit is fantastic. I bought a car, and I am planning and saving to get house in the next two years. My life has totally changed, and so can yours. If you feel desperate and alone like I did, I think this book can help you.
(I would also recommend Suze Orman's The 9 Steps to Financial Freedom: Practical and Spiritual Steps So You Can Stop Worrying.)
Just bought my first house. I'm so proud of it. Its worth it to take control of your debt!
