This is the book I was looking for, but didn't know it! I have not always made the best decisions when it comes to my finances. I'm very good with numbers, but not so good with money. I've read other books that go into detail about how to track or budget, but they don't deal with the "meat" of the problem: WHY we spend too much. This book does. There are exercises designed to get to the heart of your attitudes about money, and they do just that. Along with those exercises, there are good, solid ideas for getting a handle on your money and dealing with your debt. McCall's idea that you still need to have a life while you are dealing with this is just how I felt about it, and her suggestion to first stop incurring debt before trying to reduce it is a good foundation. This will work for me! That's what makes this book different--she's traveled the same road as other authors of similar books, but comes up with a better solution than they did. There are good examples, solid stories of how people were able to work her program to accomplish their goals, and I enjoyed reading them, as well as the rest of the book.
That said, I've not been thrilled with the response to a request for information from her website. Still waiting after almost a week. So I will stick with the book and it's exercises and instructions, and skip the website stuff. Do give the book a try, though.
