Whether you are suffering under crushing debt, unable to save money, or caught in the tangle of inherited wealth, Karen McCall's Financial Recovery offers a time-tested plan for building a stable and satisfying way of life -- and keeping it that way. It will help you make a fundamental shift in the way you understand and behave around money.

Financial Recovery presents a simple system that enables you to discover your underlying attitudes about money -- often the cause of self-defeating money behaviors such as overspending, chronic debt, underearning, and low or no savings -- and provides the tools, strategies, and support to achieve financial well-being.

Karen McCall has more than twenty years of experience counseling people from all walks of life -- people with millions of dollars, people with very little, and people whose means are somewhere in between. Financial Recovery will help you develop, and then maintain, full awareness of your spending, earning, and saving activities. It offers strategies for adapting your behavior to meet your most compelling needs, whatever your means. You can start right away using the resources you already have to create a stable and fulfilling relationship with money.

The most valuable jewel in this book is the very practical yet seemingly counterintuitive concept that building savings is more important than putting all your money toward paying off credit card debt.
If you have no reserve, you'll have to use credit cards for those unforeseen expenses and therefore will just revert to using the credit cards which will bring the weight of debt right back.
So build reserve savings, stop charging on credit cards. Pay minimum on cards until sufficient savings. Then start paying off credit cards one at a time while paying minimum on the rest. And finally, do not use credit unless paying up each month.
