From the Inside Flap

Freeing yourself from debt is easier than you think! Take it from Stacy Johnson. As creator of the hugely successful "Money Talks television news series, Johnson has helped millions of people get out of debt, achieve enduring financial freedom, and earn big from wise investments. Now it's your turn. In this focused, practical, and inspiring new book, Johnson shares the secrets of his amazing program that will win you financial freedom in just seven days.
Strange but true, financial freedom has almost nothing to do with how much you make or what you know about high finance. It all comes down to three basic principles: get rid of the debt that is shackling you, learn to live below your means, and start investing sensibly and consistently. In Life or Debt, Johnson spells out exactly how to accomplish these goals in a step-by-step plan that covers
* How to calculate what you really earn, where your money goes, and how you can quickly convert debts to investments
* How to quit "working" for credit card companies and mortgage holders by reducing (or eliminating) your debt now
* Why you're actually paying three times the sale price of the items you buy --and how to stop
* How to work out a simple budget that provides ample money for what you need and cuts out unnecessary expenses
* How to melt away that mountain of debt by prioritizing which debts should be paid off first and at what rate
* The secrets of investing wisely and with minimum risk
* 205 ways to save money--it really does add up!
Destroying debt does not mean radically changing your lifestyle or giving up the things you love. It does mean taking charge of your financial freedom and making sure themoney you earn goes to the things you care about. The power to live without debt is yours--let Stacy Johnson and this revolutionary new book help you unleash it now!

I have read many a getting out of debt book. Most mention reducing your lifestyle considerably until your debts are paid off, including selling many things you may enjoy having, but that can be extremely unpleasant or difficult to most people. This book recommends finding something you love and finding ways to save money in your budget to create a "debt destroyer" and using this "debt destroyer" money every month to speed up paying off your debt. This allows you to adjust your lifestyle as much as you are comfortable without having to reduce your lifestyle to bare minimum. The technique taught in this book can be difficult at times and may take a bit longer to get out of debt than other books, but you still become debt free, and your lifestyle is not destroyed with the debt.

The techniques that Stacy Johnson provides in this book makes you think of one thing. Common sense! While we all get caught up in making money, the idea is that we have more money to spend. Stacy outlines a plan in this book to get you started on your journey to become debt free from step 1 all the way to the end. Stacy's ideas and experience help to reinforce that a program like this will work..... but it starts with you!

This book is very easy to read and I like the way he uses analogies to describe financial situations. This book is a must to have!

Great book for helping one out of debt...For someone who doesn't have at least a six month surplus of savings beginning can the plan can be difficult but not impossuble. I plan to put the solution in use for the first 3 months this year & see how it goes till tax time and then use that refund to continue using the program.

Very informative but doable may be in question. The book assumes that in the years you pay down or off your debt that there are no financial emergencies or un-expected bills that arise. Also, you must be very focused to follow the plan. I did get inspired to be debt free but now comes the hard part. Still I found it worth thinking about to possibly see if I can do it.
