    "Pure propaganda and lies"

    Such rubbish. I have no issue with it being a historically inaccurate fable. My problem is that it's carefully crafted to give false hopes so you will keep paying your debts. I help people build their own businesses, and this book says nothing useful about growing income! The focus is on paying off debt. Moreover, even if your only aspiration is to get out of debt, which is admirable, dont expect help there either. This formula won't work in modern credit industry practices! This book may even cause you harm by subtly brainwashing you into thinking all sorts of lies desingned to get you to pay so you can "feel good about yourself." In truth, many people need to stop paying creditors, but they let shame and fear of bad credit destroy their lives. Forgive your own past bad choices and declare bankruptcy so you can return to being a fully available parent, neighbor and citizen. Creditors don't care if you never see your childern or don't engage with your community; they prefer you work the extra jobs so you can pay them. To them, being "responsible" means only one thing- getting out of debt -and they love to make you feel lousy about any other choice you might make other than that. I too was lured into the messages of the book at first...until I really thought about it. Then when I came to write this criticism I read publisher notes: sure enough it was started as depression era propaganda from bankers and insurance companies! Granted there are some truths in here; like all great propaganda they have to feed you just enough to seem believable. But don't believe the high ratings like I did; probably the same folks who lobbied for bankruptcy reform commissioned this writing and are propping up the ratings artificially.
