Customer Review

on November 18, 2008
Great titles are usually short, to the point, and interesting enough to cause even casual book browsers to stop and think. Occasionally, the rare title does the aforementioned while highlighting uncomfortable, yet powerful, truths. "Debt is Slavery" by Michael Mihalik is one of those titles. Better still, its one of those books that is tightly focused on the kinds of truths that can make a profound difference in the lives of real people - many of whom are struggling to navigate their way through our consumer society.

Let's face facts, from the explosion of credit cards starting in the 70's, to the growth of easy consumer credit over the past two decades, to the advent of N.I.N.J.A. (No Income, No Job, No Assets) home loans in the current era, the American Dream has turned into a financial nightmare for the vast majority of Americans.

Turning this around is no easy task. But, it starts with people, one at a time, educating themselves and then acting on the knowledge they obtain. Mihalik does the educating quite well by pointing out in succinct fashion many timeless truths:

* Money IS Time
* Possessions ARE a Prison
* There IS an Ongoing Campaign to Separate You from Your Money
* Money BUYS Freedom, and
* Control Your Money or YOUR MONEY WILL CONTROL YOU

Most importantly, the short direct tone of the book makes it easy to read and then ACT UPON. So, read "Debt is Slavery" and ACT on the information. You will gain control of your life and free yourself from the shackles of debt. Pass the book by, or fail to heed its advice, and the next time you pull out your credit card to buy something, or are tempted to borrow money, the queasy truth remains: Debt, indeed, is Slavery.
