Overview

Whether you are suffering under crushing debt, unable to save money, or caught in the tangle of inherited wealth, Karen McCall’s Financial Recovery offers a time-tested plan for building a stable and satisfying way of life — and keeping it that way. It will help you make a fundamental shift in the way you understand and behave around money.

Financial Recovery presents a simple system that enables you to discover your underlying attitudes about money — often the cause of self-defeating money behaviors such as overspending, chronic debt, underearning, and low or no savings — and provides the tools, strategies, and support to achieve financial well-being.

Karen McCall has more than twenty years of experience counseling people from all walks of life — people with millions of dollars, people with very little, and people whose means are somewhere in between. Financial Recovery will help you develop, and then maintain, full awareness of your spending, earning, and saving activities. It offers strategies for adapting your behavior to meet your most compelling needs, whatever your means. You can start right away using the resources you already have to create a stable and fulfilling relationship with money.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
McCall, founder of the Financial Recovery Institute, defines financial recovery as "a process that helps you develop a healthy relationship with money that is both healing and life changing." She describes her own traumatic issues related to large debt and waiting until near financial ruin and desperation to attempt recovery. She clearly explains ways for individuals to relinquish debt by reevaluating their behavior with money and preparing a strategy for rebuilding finances. Covered topics include examining one's relationship with money (involving hiding financial woes from family and friends, shame, obsession, and denial); exploring how people get in the same money troubles repeatedly (the money/life-drain); understanding the differences between individuals' needs and wants; looking at the nitty-gritty of financial recovery; creating a spending plan; understanding the interaction between savings and debt; and ultimately developing "sterling money behaviors." The author uses case studies to illustrate her points and includes questions for readers to ponder about their own financial situations. VERDICT McCall offers sound, practical advice for anyone interested in learning to maintain financial solvency and, especially, those needing to get out of debt and reclaim their financial lives.—Lucy T. Heckman, St. John's Univ. Lib., Jamaica, NY
