The ROAD out of DEBT

"Debt is daunting. Debt takes more than an economic toll; the emotional toll as one struggles with mounting debt is devastating. As stress mounts, people begin to get desperate.

It is a must-read for anyone who is struggling in today's turbulent economic times and is looking for the best strategy to navigate themselves back onto secure financial ground."—JOHN HOPE BRYANT, founder, Chairman and CEO of America's first nonprofit social investing banking network, Operation HOPE and bestselling author of Love Leadership: The New Way to Lead in a Fear-Based World

"Don't try to navigate your way out of credit card, medical, student loan, or mortgage debt without this book. It will explain your options; reveal hidden traps and pitfalls; and put you back in control of your finances."—CAROL J. KENNER, retired United States bankruptcy judge

"A marriage of law and finance that has produced a miracle of uncommonly useful advice for consumers that is clear, candid, and hopeful."—STEVE NICKLES, C.C. Hope Chair in Law and Management, School of Law and Schools of Business, Wake Forest University
