In difficult times, debt can be a matter of life and death, happiness and despair. Controlling your debt can bring order and calm. Mastering debt can bring wealth and success. 

As bestselling Rich Dad/Poor Dad author Robert Kiyosaki says, "Good debt makes you rich, and bad debt makes you poor."

The ABCs of Getting Out of Debt provides the necessary knowledge to navigate through a very challenging credit environment. A Rich Dad's Advisor and best-selling author of numerous business books, Garrett Sutton, Esq. clearly writes on the key strategies readers must follow to get out of debt. Unlike other superficial offerings, Sutton explores the psychology and health effects of debt. From there, the reader learns how to beat the lenders at their own game, and how to understand and repair your own credit. Using real-life illustrative stories, Sutton shares how to deal with debt collectors, avoid credit scams, and win with good credit.

"The reason Garrett Sutton's book is so important is that like it or not, debt is a powerful force in our world today. The financially intelligent are using debt to enrich themselves while the financially uneducated are using debt to destroy their lives."- Robert Kiyosaki

The times call for a book that offers hope and education on mastering credit and getting out of debt.

Read an Excerpt

One of the reasons this book is so important is that it is important to be financially responsible and to use the power of your credit and debt intelligently. Before turning you loose into this book, I would like to pass on three bits of information my rich dad taught me years ago. 

They are:

1. Bad debt is easier to get than good debt. If any of you have ever tried to get a loan to buy a rental property or to start a business, you may know how difficult it is to get a loan for investment. Yet if you want a car loan or a new credit card, credit, debt, and money are easy to come by, even if you have horrible credit.

2. Bad debt makes it harder to get good debt. If you have too much bad debt, and you want to begin using the power of debt and credit more intelligently, like for starting a business or investing in rental property, bad debt makes it harder for you to get the good debt and hence to become richer. One big reason this book is so important is that getting rid of your bad debt is an important step toward you becoming richer and more financially free.

3. Debtors can get rich faster than savers. Many people think that saving is better than borrowing. In fact, I know that many people work hard to save money and get out of debt. In reality, it is those who save and get out of debt who fall behind those that borrow and get into debt.
