I really do like the way the book is written. It's a very easy read, but it also has a lot of great information and resources. It's almost a semi-giant book (at 430 pages), but it's broken into parts and the information is very organized. I especially like Chapter 6 (Your Suit of Armor), which covers scams. You think a scam could never happen to you, but after reading this chapter, it's easy to see how you could be taken advantage of. There is also a lot of information about protecting your home and avoiding foreclosure. For all the people out there who are having a hard time, make sure to carefully read the end of the book! The author is trying to help people through a special fund and you can write to him for help. Just knowing what the author is doing makes me like this book even more. If you want to learn more about homeownership or your finances, this book is a great find.
In the back there are tools you can use to keep track and better your finances. You can also take advantage of the authors extensive knowledge and contact him for additional help. In this these times it's nice to see a person who sincerely wants to help people.
I have recommended this book to friends. I am better for it and know they will be too.
I was looking for information when we decided it might be smart to refinance. What I learned from reading the book - the difference between lenders and brokers etc, what to look for on the GFE and what to expect at closing (just to name a few things) - was instrumental in helping me through our refinance. Also the information in the credit section WOW! I honestly had no clue...thought I kind of did before but after reading it I was blown away. I loved the writing style of the book as well - very easy to read and information broken down so things made sense. I also think it is really cool that the book is going to be used to help people too. I hope their national campaign is able to make a difference and assist good people who need it.
