I like to read anything that tells a good story, duh ;) Genre doesn't really matter much but I tend to read dark fiction and fantasy the most. I skip chick lit and romance novels with a few exceptions for the extraordinary.

Debt Free For Life: The Finish Rich Plan for Financial Freedom

Debt Free For Life: The Finish Rich Plan for Financial Freedom - David Bach There's *not* a lot of new information if you've read any other financial expert's books, especially David Bach's. But there were a few tips that I didn't know about, such as the ability to request a lower interest rate on your credit card from the issuer. And the brief overview of how much faster one's mortgage can be paid off was helpful as well. Those two points though left me needing a bit more analysis and explanation, which I sought online.I did sign up and try out the Debt Wise system that Bach advertised throughout the book. It would probably be most helpful for those individuals who do not maintain "clean" books in financial software already. I'm a bookkeeper by day so much of the information presented in this book was common knowledge. I cancelled after the free trial period.
