Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Many Americans, we are told, are loaded with personal debts. While paying them may be burdensome enough, not paying will register you with one of three main (secretive) credit bureaus. Getting your name cleared from these outfits may take some doing if things don't go smoothly. Bierman, a credit consultant, and Wice, a freelance writer, show how to get your credit reports, read them (jargon reigns here too), and repair them. Practical step-by-step routines are outlined and valuable sample letters scattered throughout, with the caveat not to copy them precisely or the credit bureaus will suspect that you are being coached. Appendixes citing all the relevant laws fill a third of the book. Surely this will be both a useful addition to public libraries and probably an item to be kept behind the desk.-- Alex Wenner, Indiana Univ. Libs., Bloomington
