Also - I bought it used so I don't fall into the Two-Income Trap and the quality was just fine.
I am a staunch Conservative. Elizabeth Warren is a staunch liberal, but her expertise in bankruptcy law and her willingness to confront both conservative AND liberal false-beliefs is refreshing. I am trying to get my conservative friends to read this book. :-) I have gotten many liberal friends to read it, and it has changed many of their assumptions.
This would be great reading in ANY economics course. My college daughter read this book, enjoyed it, and it has informed her!
