Allen Carr’s Get Out of Debt Now applies Allen Carr’s Easyway method to the problem of debt and the addiction to spending. It starts by addressing the various psychological attitudes to money and spending that lead to debt. By unravelling the brainwashing instilled by the banking and credit industries, it adjusts our mindset to show what really gives us pleasure in life. It also helps us see the futility in spending money we don’t have on things that don’t make us happy.
The message throughout is that it is easy to get out of debt if you follow the instructions. Having dealt with the mindset, it moves on to practical methods for removing the problem, measuring your spending and income, making a plan to balance the books, reducing your spending, paying off your debts and increasing your income.
Allen Carr was a chain-smoker for over 30 years. In 1983, after countless failed attempts to quit, he went from 100 cigarettes a day to zero without suffering withdrawal pangs, without using willpower, and without putting on weight. He realised that he had discovered what the world had been waiting for - the Easy Way to Stop Smoking, and embarked on a mission to help cure the world’s smokers. As a result of the phenomenal success of his method, he gained an international reputation as the world’s leading expert on stopping smoking and his network of clinics now spans the globe. Allen Carr’s Easyway method has been applied to a host of issues including alcohol, weight control, children smoking, fear of flying - and now money!

The book was tough to get through only because of my own weird fears and self-sabotage. But I made it through to the end and then listened again once my fears were asuaged. This book is a miracle and it has absolutely changed my mindset; helped me take a handle over my out-of-control spending and debt issues. I cannot recommend this book enough. If you find yourself struggling to listen to it because you are uncertain or afraid just keep going, I promise the outcome is wonderful.
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to "Get Out of Debt Now". I found it to be practical and easy to follow. I've already begun using the instructions for getting out of debt and I feel more positive about getting out of debt. I never realized how straight forward getting out of debt could be. I would strongly recommend this audio book to anyone feeling overwhelmed and hopeless because of their debt. Kudos to the author!
I am not a gambler, but I read now read four books by Allen Carr: On smoking, alcohol, gambling, and debt...because I was so impressed with his unique approach to addictions.
I recently checked out his website. He company offers seminars and online classes around the world. I have a loved one who is a CHAIN SMOKER. He is also OVERWEIGHT...after being a skinny guy for much of his life.
I also have another family member who had a darling figure until she got married and had three children. I am interested in helping both of them.
BTW, on his website and on YouTube are video TESTIMONIALS from celebrities such as: Anthody Hopkins, Aston Kutcher, Ellen Degernes, and Richard Branson. Check them out.
"Repetitive but worked"
Not read print version but I think it was probably better for me as an audible - i know Allen Carrs technique for smoking and so i kind of new the basics!
Easy way to quit smoking (but for debt / shopping addictio ninstead)
The process of feeling light at the end of the tunnel
Well worth a read if you want to cut spending!
"Makes you think!"
I found this book very interesting and it's made me think differently about how big corporate money lenders sell you there wares, once you understand this it's easier to avoid the temptation of getting into debt, very thought provoking.
"Good listen but not entirely authentic"
The book is useful and gives you a sense of purpose to working on your debt. However, it is not narrated by Allen Carr, which was a disappointment, since he was such a good speaker. I don't think it was written by him either, but by someone who is now in charge of his clinics. It seems to be the method, but not quite authentic.
Wasn't a story.
Worth looking at if you're in debt (who isn't?) and what you can do about it. Didn't seem to have that usual magic Allen Carr effect on me really.
"A useful tool for changing your spending habits"
Debt recovery plan
More case studies from people who have used the plan would make the book more enjoyable.
I'm not sure.
Not really but it did change the way I spend and save.
A great book for anyone trying to get out of debt.
