Editorial Reviews

Review

"Indispensible. Well-written, great examples, and a to-the-point approach make this a superb guide to have... 'just in case!'"
Gary B. Smith, Fox Business Network
 
"The Road Out of Debt will put you in a better position to face your personal financial problems and deal with them." 
Lynnette Khalfani-Cox, the Money Coach 

From the Inside Flap

Joan N. Feeney, a Massachusetts bankruptcy judge, and Theodore W. Connolly, a highly respected finance and bankruptcy attorney, have written a book to help you understand and overcome the financial problems you may currently face.
Written in a straightforward and accessible style, The Road Out of Debt walks you through the steps you need to take in order to resolve your debts and rebuild your finances. Initially, it discusses your options for avoiding bankruptcy and managing your specific debts. It then moves on to examine when filing for bankruptcy might be the right decision. Along the way, you'll quickly discover how bankruptcy really works, so you can effectively navigate through it either on your own or with the help of a lawyer.
With millions of Americans personally facing dire financial situations, job losses, home foreclosures, and other major financial challenges, no book could be more timely. Divided into four comprehensive parts, this reliable resource:
  • Will help you assess your debt situation and achieve financial freedom either with or without bankruptcy
  • Addresses how to handle specific debts, including credit card, mortgage, medical, student loans, auto, and tax
  • Warns you about the dangers of debt quick fixes and scams
  • Puts the bankruptcy process in perspective and discusses the different types of bankruptcy options available to you
  • Presents stories of hypothetical bankruptcies based on real individuals, so you can understand and learn more about what can happen in a bankruptcy case
In addition to the information presented here, much more--including links to many of the resources mentioned throughout the book and additional checklists for evaluating your financial situation and dealing with debt--can be found at roadoutofdebt.com.
Filled with the insights of both a bankruptcy judge and a bankruptcy lawyer, The Road Out of Debt will put you in a better position to face your personal financial problems and deal with them. With this book as your guide, you'll quickly learn when it's best to avoid bankruptcy, when you should seek bankruptcy protection, and, most important, how to work through the bankruptcy process if you choose to take that path.

Format: Hardcover
I am a big fan of books on the subject of debt - mainly because I was in debt for such a long time and managed, through thick and thin, lots of sacrificing AND reading these type of wonderful books to get out of debt.

Now, I read them for two reasons 1) to remember how easily I can get back there and 2) to read up on methods and ideas to stay out of debt, but also to amass more savings.

The Road out of Debt is actually written for the lay person - which is perfect, as I hate, hate reading books on debt that are loaded with boring information, tables and charts that only your accountant can understand. No problems with that in this book! thankfully.

Secondly, this book tackles a tough subject - bankruptcy and if you should do it. By actually telling you the pros and cons of bankruptcy and by fully explaining that in many cases, YOU DO HAVE OTHER CHOICES. In fact, this book is actually a lot of fun because it doesn't "preach" by harping on why, why, why you did not save money and why, why, why you got in debt. It focuses on fixing the problems, but offering you clear and concise information on the ways that you have available.

It is a fairly unbiaised book - which I like. Basically, the authors have done ton of research on the subject and condensed it in an easy to read and understand book - which answers pretty well any question you may have.

Buy this one.

About 10 years ago I had bad financial problems and I had to file for bankruptcy, which was a huge mistake. My credit is still ruined, it looks like that bankruptcy will never be erased. If you go through financial problems, then this book is a must read, as it provides tons on info on the subject, and doing your homework before jumping to conclusions is very, very important.

I highly recommend this book. It is perfect for those who want clear cut steps to get out of debt. It also provides information to determine whether bankruptcy is the right choice.

The content is written in simple terms with useful information on negotiation, budgeting tips, and various types of debt solutions. The authors provide real world examples and case studies to illustrate their points. Practical advice is given so that the reader is aware of his or her rights and can achieve results. Also included in the book is an appendix filled with resources for anyone seeking financial freedom. It is an excellent tool for those seeking information on how to avoid debt and those who seek to rebuild their finances.

Road to Debt has GREAT information that can help anyone! Nearly all of us have some area where we can improve our financial profile, and this has the information that someone needs. Too bad it was not available to each of us during our teens. Could have helped us avoid most of the pitfalls.

Consider this book the least expensive and yet,most in-depth legal and financial counsel out there!

The book brings you up to (and beyond) what hundreds (possibly thousands) of billable hours leave you.

Strongly recommend.
