If you're underwater on your home, you can't afford not to read this book.

"In a tone that is both conversational and precise... lays out the case for and against walking away from an upside-down mortgage where the home is worth less than the mortgage balance. As is his habit, Mr. White strips away many of the emotional reasons that are often touted to deter walkaways. - Wall Street Journal, Decemeber 7, 2010.

"A how-to book on strategic mortgage default." - Orlando Sentinel, December 15, 2010

"Brent White, a University of Arizona law professor who has preached the morality double standard that homeowners face while companies default on loans without so much as a second thought, now makes his case in a book that virtually holds homeowners' hand through the process. He tells them what to consider when deciding whether they should stop paying the mortgage... White even walks homeowners through the math to figure out whether they're better off staying put and or walking away. - Orlando Sentinel, December 15, 2010
