    An insightful guide

    All my questions were answered which then helped me to get started. What appears to be a difficult & complex matter was easily defined and laid out in simple terms. Mr. Ventura is to be commended for his simple approach yet he fully discusses the necessary details. From what I eventually learned, this book sets the stage to plan a course of action and helps one to intelligently interact with a lawyer, but professional assistance (a lawyer) is best needed to complete the bankruptcy process.
