This book is an easy read and had motivated me to stay on budget. If you are totally upside down in your finances, it may not be a big help. But if you are just scraping by, this should help. The idea is to squeeze every budget item to free up $300/ month, and then use that $300/month to pay off debt and to build savings.
I have always enjoyed watching Jean on various TV shows and like her no nonsense approach to money management. This book has some excellent ideas on what it takes to pay down your debt in a manageable way. I would highly recommend it to swap readers.
