Title: The ABCs of Real Estate Investing: The Secrets of Finding Hidden Profits Most Investors Miss (Rich Dads Advisors)

An excellent example of the helpful financial audios produced by Robert Kiyosaki's Rich Dad company, Garrett Sutton's can-do lesson is an excellent lesson on how to rise above debt. He provides a largely sympathetic lesson on why people dig such holes for themselves and why creditors let them. The information is nicely condensed and includes illustrations that people at all intellectual levels will connect with. The writing and the matter-of-fact reading are proactive--he doesn't celebrate or condemn anyone's goofy money decisions. Know yourself, get your attitudes and behavior under control, and then use the author's formulas and action steps to wrestle your credit report, account by account, back into something respectable.
