Mortgages, credit card balances, student loans, car loans, and home improvement loans have become a way of life. All that debt is putting not only our present at risk as we live paycheck to paycheck but our futures in jeopardy, as shockingly few of us have enough put away for retirement. But personal financial expert Mary Hunt wants you to know a radical but simple truth--you really can get out of debt and stay out of debt--for the rest of your life.

If you have been struggling to pay the bills, if you feel like you just can't make your finances work, if you feel like your money situation is getting out of control, you need this book. It can change your life, just as it's changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of others already.

"It has been four years since I really took to heart all the information in Debt-Proof Living. I am happy to report today that we have paid back over $35,000 of 'stupid debt' and are currently saving like crazy for a house. I would have had no idea where to start if I had not read this book. Peace of mind is a great gift!"--Denise J.

"I want to thank you for writing your book, Debt-Proof Living. It was our salvation and now it is our daily living reference. We had a lot of stupid debt (over $40,000) about three years ago. We have now paid off each and every credit-card account. What a weight was lifted from our shoulders. We used this book every step of the way. We are truly reformed credit-card users. I wish a lot of people would read this book--it's wonderful. We are now using it to learn about investing our money and saving for retirement. We are living proof that it works."--Kathy W.

"I picked up Debt-Proof Living from the library. (I know, what a cheapskate!) I wanted to say thanks to you because I can now sleep again at night knowing that there is a way out of our debt-ridden life. I am excited to make changes and not have our life controlled by our money--but rather to be able to control our life and our money."--Janis N.

"Because of Debt-Proof Living I have completely changed my thinking about money."--M.J.

"I picked up Debt-Proof Living and started to read. Oh my, I kept thinking, this sounds just like me--I am not the only intelligent person who absolutely stinks at money management! I am pleased to say that I have paid off $12,000 with $6,300 to go. Thanks again for being strong enough to share your story. You have changed my life and from what I can see on your website, countless other's lives as well."--Beth G.
