Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In their 20s and way over their heads in debt (despite having good educations and comfortable jobs), Jason Anthony and Karl Cluck did something about it. Now they're Debt-Free by 30, and offer practical advice for the young, broke and upwardly mobile in a book that's as slick as it is solid. Most books about managing debt make for dry and guilt-ridden reads. Here readers (even those over 30) can cheer up and take charge of decisions about credit, health insurance, financing a car, where to bank and spending money.

    On my way to financial freedom!

    I found this book great for my age group (20s) and easy to understand for those just starting out, yet drowning in debt. I feel they laid the groundwork for me to begin a climb out of credit card debt. Thanks guys!

    This makes so much sense!!!

    This is the best get out of debt guide I have read --because it makes sense. Most books that have anything to do with finance make me confused and I just forget about it...but this book is written by people like me --living in New York with debt and crazy cost of living-- for me!
