She has packed a tremendous amount of information into this 240 pg guide, complete with sample letters to creditors, an invaluable list of consumer protection agencies, and other resources and guides. When I first opened it, I sighed, wondering how it could be any different from the advertisements that come on after hours, promising all the information in the world for just $19.99, and offering you no more than what you already knew and never implemented. As you can tell from the review, I have struggled from undergraduate debt I know this merry go round well. Three hours later, I had devoured Ms. Freeman¿s guide, tucking it on my shelf of ¿very necessary day-to-day living¿ reading. No doubt, folks, this one is a keeper. Key Positives: A clear read. Simple and to the point, this guide touches on each and every aspect of debt and bad credit, leaving nothing to chance. The resources listed in the appendices are impossible to collect on your own, well, maybe not entirely impossible, but why would you want to if you didn¿t have to? Also, there is a listing of terms and definitions, clarifying and correcting what we think we already know. Key Negatives: At times a bit pitchy however keep on reading, the wealth of information to be gained is rewarding. Rating: 4 out 5 mice for sincerity, clarity, ease of read, wealth of information and willingness to share personal experiences. Reviewed by: a.Kai of Read Zone Book Reviewers
