The author of this book is more than a little delusional; he keeps talking about how he's the greatest whistleblower in the history of whistleblowing because of all the information he's packed into this book.... What information? It is chapter after chapter of this guy waffling about absolutely nothing so I'll tell you the key points you'll get from this book which will hopefully save you the bother.
1. The book is completely irrelevant for the UK market and is aimed at american debt cures. I use the word 'cures' loosely.
2. There is one useful chapter on your personal credit rating which helps you understand that the complex algorithm used to determine your score is designed to look for negative factors. You need to look after your credit score and make sure you pay your bills on time. (I know its an obvious statement)
3. There is a statute of limitations on debt in the US and debt is written off after a certain time frame.
4. The author makes constant references to services offered on his own website which I'm sure are as bad as the book.
5. Don't buy this book. It's nothing more than a platform for the authors ego and is packed with nothing more than useless waffle!
After buying 100's of books from audible.com, this is my first review. This guy should hire somebody who is a professional narrator to actually read his book. I feel like I am listening infomercial and not actual book. Guy repeats himself, using words like "man", making mistakes (because doesn’t sound like he actually reading). You can hear flipping pages in the background. Half of the book the guy talks about "evil corporations" and "evil United States Governments". I mean we got it, credit companies are "evil" in the first half of the chapter one, don't need to hear that over and over again. Claiming to be a whistle blower, and how he gets death threats and hate mail, because he is trying to expose those companies. I am not sure whose whistle he blows, but there is nothing new about credit companies in the way they do business. So don't be full of yourself, you not the first one who talks about how they conduct the business. Author sounds like salesman, which what he is, trying to sell his services. Nothing wrong with this, but don't claim that the only reason you doing this because you want to help people and doing this for free.
Don't expect to learn much, some helpful information, but this is the same kind of garbage you can hear, if you stay up late and watch infomercials, and guys that trying to sell book and tapes to show you how become rich. This one actually tells you that you can become debt free and become millionaire. My advice to readers, skip it. To author get somebody else to read your books, because as a narrator you suck.
I would be returning this book if it was purchased at the actual book store.
This is great information but he does not give the resources in this audio book. I still have to buy the actual book to get the resources he's talking about. If I knew that then I would not have purchased the Audio Book I would have brought the Hard Copy Book.
"Don't waste your money"
This author repeatedly tells us he is the champion of the little guy and the enemy of corporate america and the government. In reality this audio book left me feeling like I was scammed by him.
The debt cures are nothing more than repackaging of advice you would get (for free) from any consumer advice bureau. The rest of the book is ceaseless repetitious waffle.
Debt cure number 1 don't waste any more money by buying this book.
This was worthless. If he avoided his repetitions and personal aggrandizing the book would be two pages and offer nothing new. How do you select less than one star?
"Still have to buy the "real" book..."
I like that all the stuff I could get from free services is in one place. What I really am irked about is that all the wonderful resources touted by the author aren't accessable to those who own the AUDIObook. Stuff in the appendices, etc.
I've been listening in my car on the way to work. Kind of tough to make note of a website, etc, while driving in traffic. Going to Mr. Trudeau's website gets you BLASTED by his marketing spiel, with no access to information. Only "click here to buy now."
Still trying to decide if I'm willing to "buy" the book twice.
"not what i was expecting"
heavy content on credit card debt
like many - the websites for funding and grants are overstated as options - and incorrectly stated that grants.gov provide grants to individuals and for profit companies - i listened to the whole program and only got some tips for help finding funding at the end chapter or two - the websites are not worth the money for the book - you can do a bit of online research and get the same info - not worth the money or time :(
"Save your money and your time"
Like another reviewer, this is my first review after listening to several dozen other books. If you took out all the cockalorum and the repetitive, feigned outrage you'd have one and a half hours of ACTUAL material. Never mind that there's NOTHING actually new in that hour and a half.
In additional to the lack of content the author apparently decided to take a bigger cut of the book proceeds by narrating the book himself. That was a BIG mistake on his and the book-seller's part. He often misreads material and has to re-read an entire sentence, correct a word tense or whether the word is singular or plural. His mistakes cause the cadence to be completely off making it difficult to follow in several places. It almost sounds like it's the narrator's first read-through. Also, you can hear the pages being turned which after about 20 minutes is VERY annoying.
Finally, if you HAVE to buy this 'book', buy the print version so that you have access to the appendices that are often cited in the 'material'.
Book is lacking substance in fact the author claims knowledge of government agencies that are dubious of veracity.
"Excellent book with interesting tips"
Very good and interesting book, however applies only for the USA, not other countries. For me it was helpful anyways
"Good Info. Please add PDF"
Great information and resources. Wish the index was included as a PDF though.
Good stories and useful information.
