Mary Hunt delightfully encourages her readers to give and save their money plus reduce their debt completely. She diligently reiterates her tips in ways that are easily understood, well defined, and lightly salted with humor. She knows her business since she has been in serious debt herself which is a consolation to anyone reading her book. Her plans sound very reasonable and she includes responses from people who have used them and succeeded. She explains financial terms with detail so the newest person can grasp how to handle their funds without sounding condescending or too simple for the more educated earner. Her heart is to help and the reader will feel that to the end of the book. I would recommend this to your high school student getting his/her first job, your college bound student as she/he applies to schools and is deciding how to finance his/her education, to engaged couples or newlyweds. Anyone who needs to manage their money without going into debt is a candidate for reading this book not just those who are already in debt. Those who owe money on many credit cards will find specific assistance in reducing their debt, becoming debt free, and finding ways to handle those unknown emergencies without turning to credit cards again. I highly recommend Debt-Proof Living!
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review by Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
