    Great Readng!!

    I am a procrastinating reader. I mean I dilly and dally and don't actually sit down and read right through. However, the reading in this book is excellent. It gives clear and precise information as well as testimonies to help a person learn how to take control of his/her finances. This is definitely not a get rich scheme book, but it discusses what we neglect to do in our everyday lives to control our resources financially. It makes you think about how money influences you and the people around you. My only wish for this book or the author is to create a workbook so that people can have a tangible resource to work with instead of using the computer. I think this book is also excellent for students coming out of college considering that so many today have access to credit cards and have learned bad habits from parents and others around them. Again, excellent reading and information.

    Good priority setter

    Good book to help you get your spending habits in check. Also help you set priorities. The 21 day fast helped me take a nice chunk out of my debt. Now it is just a matter of keeping my mind in order and focused.I purchased for my niece and nephew to help them get a better start on their financial future.

    Insightful, direct and to the point

    I originally brought the book for a reading assignment for my church and once I started reading it, I was very interest in following the fast and developing a plan for improvement. The author provides tools and techniques for various financial situations, which are easy to understand and follow.

    A great gift!

    The Power to Prosper by Michelle Singletary is a phenomenal book. I purchsed the book in December so that I could follow along as the church fasted. I learned so much about basic financial principles and about relevant scriptures.The book focuses not only on helping those who need debt relief but also those who need to know what to do with their money. I have seen a transformation of mind and spending habits. The daily progression of the book makes it easy to read and the challenges at the end of each chapter allow for personal reflection. I am now giving this book as a gift to my family members.

    Must read and follow

    Sometimes I find Ms.Singletary a little...umm...self-righteous but her book is very well written. Informative, funny and encouraging. It really did help me cut unnecessary spending and increase my tithing.
