The world of borrowing and debt management has changed dramatically, leaving people confused about how best to secure their financial future. This book is the only guide with detailed advice to help you become debt free or master the debt you have, based on the latest laws and new government programs and policies implemented under the Obama administration.

Is the information and advice on debt management different than in years past? Definitely. In this savvy, engaging guide, bestselling financial expert Jordan Goodman will tell you how to
  • Win the mortgage game: avoid foreclosure, obtain the best refi, and modify your mortgage even if it is "under water"

The book is filled with helpful web sites, toll free numbers, associations and government agencies, and vetted companies and services to help you implement this advice. In today's volatile economy, getting out of debt is the key to surviving and thriving, and author Jordan Goodman provides you with the strategies and tools to live debt free.

Received from the publicist for review.

My favorite quote from the book was:

If I had only one bit of advice to share – my number one, most important piece of financial advice after a lifetime of giving financial advice – it would be this: Don't lie to yourself about your money.

This one gets four stars. Although it was printed in annoyingly small type it was packed with great, usable advice. It was wonderfully comprehensive, covering everything from figuring out your net worth to credit reports to paying off your mortgage. This easy to read volume would prove beneficial to people of all income levels.

★★★★ = Really Liked It
