The Unofficial Guide to Beating Debt
Meet Greg Pahl
Debt and credit tips
What people are saying about this book:
"The Unofficial Guide to Beating Debt is, without a doubt, the perfect gift for anyone graduating from college.... Surveys show that few are graduating without carrying enormous debts--the average student loan upon graduation is somewhere around $16,000--and few understand exactly what being in debt means.
Fortunately, Greg Pahl, a practical down-to-earth fellow...has written a guide to getting out of debt that's just as practical and down-to-earth as he is. Spiced with Greg's own particular dry humor, The Unofficial Guide to Beating Debt is clearly written and organized into 17 chapters that cover getting in over your head, knowing when it's time to take action, dealing with creditors, figuring out where to go for help, repairing your credit report, and reestablishing credit--or as Greg calls it, "Up from the Ashes."
The book is also loaded with practical, money-saving tips and strategies for dealing with everything from banks to the IRS. It's a solid reference work, but special sections dealing with "credit problem psychology"--accepting responsibility for your debts, understanding what motivates bad spending, dealing with anxiety--as well as "Escape from Affluenza," "Downshifting," "Voluntary Simplicity," and "The New American Dream" take this book out of the formulaic self-help genre and lift it into a category all its own."
