After seeing Ms. Rocha on an early morning news cast on my local station (ABC, KSTP - channel 5) I decided getting out of debt was this years goal. A short (165 pages) book with good sound advice and no fluff. Easy reading, user friendly and practical solutions.

POCKET YOUR DOLLARS: 5 ATTITUDE CHANGES THAT WILL HELP YOU PAY DOWN DEBT,AVOID FINANCIAL STRESS & KEEP MORE OF WHAT YOU MAKE by Carrie Rocha is a wonderful non-fiction/Personal Finance. What a wonderful book packed full of useful information,with websites included. "The most popular sites on the web, shares the secrets that will help you change the way you think about money". It is written so you can understand and put some of their ideas in use. Who doesn't want to be debt free and have some money in the bank? A very educational and useful book. I would highly recommend this title. Received for an honest review from the publisher.

I've been a fan and follower of Carrie and PYD for a few years. So, naturally, when I found out she was writing a book, I anxiously awaited its arrival. I love this book! I think that changing one's attitudes about money, saving, etc., is huge. Her book is very helpful, almost like going to a presentation of hers (which I haven't been able to do). I love how she approaches the subject of money, so different and straight-forward than a lot of other books we read. Old habits are hard to break, but I am finding that her book is aiding in reshaping my ideas, and furthering my life towards a better financial status, little by little. Thanks, Carrie! Awesome book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

One nice thing about this book is that she writes it from the perspective of someone who's been there. She and her husband accumulated debt, and once they realized how deep they were in, made a plan to eliminate the debt and then live debt-free. Another thing I really like about this book is that it isn't just about changing behaviors - it's about changing the attitudes that lead to those behaviors. Attitudes like deserving treats, or the idea that more money would be the solution. These attitudes are clearly described, and then tools are given to help combat those attitudes, before diving into some basic budget tips. The budget tips aren't earth-shattering, and I wouldn't buy the book just for them. But the foundation laid by the examination of one's attitude - that is an important factor to consider, and one that a lot of personal finance books ignore. If you're struggling with money, even though you know what you should be doing, then consider checking this book out to help you figure out what mental barriers are standing in your way.

This book gets to the heart of the matter about debt. It's not a lesson in how to set up budget worksheets, as that information can be easily googled. It's about the reasons we haven't set up budget worksheets so far in our life. Carrie talks from the heart and you feel like you can connect with her.Was this review helpful?
