    The best of its kind

    This book is the best in its class! I found very practical tips that were written for 'the common man.' Even if one is not terribly in debt, this book teaches how to manage your money and make it work for you. I think EVERYONE should read this!

    This book should be given to everyone after graduation.

    This book is very well written. Everybody should read it. I don't read books very often, but I could not put it down. I read it in just 6 days. I know that this sounds bad, but I have a B.S. in finance and I feel that I learned more from this book than in the four years I spent in college. I wish that this book was around before I started school. I think that every parent should have their children read this book before heading out into the real world.

    What a wake up call!!

    I am only on Chapter 4 of Ms. Hunt's book and I can't put it down! The reality that Ms. Hunt puts into this book (in black and white) are unbelievable. Without even finishing the book, I've already incorporated her theory and I'm already feeling and seeing a difference. I've wrote my own statement of belief and posted it everywhere in my house .... bathroom mirror, refrigerator, etc. and reading that statement makes me want to change my beliefs about my money management skills (or lack of) that have put me in debt. Thank you, Ms. Hunt for a wonderful and realistic approach. Thank you.

    WHAT A REALITY SHOCK

    This book can really help people who feel as though they have a complusive spending habit. Mary admits the problems that she had with her spending and gives even the person in the worst financial situation a solution that they can work their way out of debt!!!! I would recomend this book for every young adult starting out because maybe it would help prevent them from creating a financial mess that can take years to resolve.
