From the Back Cover:

Praise for

The ROAD out of DEBT

"Debt is daunting. Debt takes more than an economic toll; the emotional toll as one struggles with mounting debt is devastating. As stress mounts, people begin to get desperate. And desperate people do dumb things. The Road Out of Debt will serve as your guide through the maze of mounting debt. In a legal, methodical, and jargon-free voice, the authors—one a well-respected bankruptcy judge, the other a distinguished bankruptcy lawyer—carefully present a coherent and user-friendly series of strategies designed to empower the reader to address problems associated with too much debt."—JACK F. WILLIAMS, Professor, Georgia State University College of Law

"In The Road Out of Debt, the authors offer their readers dignity through choice and take a no-nonsense approach in helping people get out from underneath the burden of debt. It is a must-read for anyone who is struggling in today's turbulent economic times and is looking for the best strategy to navigate themselves back onto secure financial ground."—JOHN HOPE BRYANT, founder, Chairman and CEO of America's first nonprofit social investing banking network, Operation HOPE and bestselling author of Love Leadership: The New Way to Lead in a Fear-Based World

"Don't try to navigate your way out of credit card, medical, student loan, or mortgage debt without this book. It will explain your options; reveal hidden traps and pitfalls; and put you back in control of your finances."—CAROL J. KENNER, retired United States bankruptcy judge

"A marriage of law and finance that has produced a miracle of uncommonly useful advice for consumers that is clear, candid, and hopeful."—STEVE NICKLES, C.C. Hope Chair in Law and Management, School of Law and Schools of Business, Wake Forest University

As more and more people find themselves facing financial difficulties—as a result of everything from the recent credit crisis to the bursting of the housing bubble—an increasing number of people are looking for reliable information to help them get back on the right track.

That's why authors Joan N. Feeney, a preeminent Massachusetts bankruptcy judge, and Theodore W. Connolly, a highly respected finance and bankruptcy attorney, have created The Road Out of Debt. Filled with in-depth insights and practical advice, this timely guide will put you in a better position to face your personal financial problems and deal with them accordingly.

From the Inside Flap:

Joan N. Feeney, a Massachusetts bankruptcy judge, and Theodore W. Connolly, a highly respected finance and bankruptcy attorney, have written a book to help you understand and overcome the financial problems you may currently face.
Written in a straightforward and accessible style, The Road Out of Debt walks you through the steps you need to take in order to resolve your debts and rebuild your finances. Initially, it discusses your options for avoiding bankruptcy and managing your specific debts. It then moves on to examine when filing for bankruptcy might be the right decision. Along the way, you'll quickly discover how bankruptcy really works, so you can effectively navigate through it either on your own or with the help of a lawyer.
With millions of Americans personally facing dire financial situations, job losses, home foreclosures, and other major financial challenges, no book could be more timely. Divided into four comprehensive parts, this reliable resource:

  • Will help you assess your debt situation and achieve financial freedom either with or without bankruptcy
  • Addresses how to handle specific debts, including credit card, mortgage, medical, student loans, auto, and tax
  • Warns you about the dangers of debt quick fixes and scams
  • Puts the bankruptcy process in perspective and discusses the different types of bankruptcy options available to you
  • Presents stories of hypothetical bankruptcies based on real individuals, so you can understand and learn more about what can happen in a bankruptcy case
In addition to the information presented here, much more--including links to many of the resources mentioned throughout the book and additional checklists for evaluating your financial situation and dealing with debt--can be found at roadoutofdebt.com.
Filled with the insights of both a bankruptcy judge and a bankruptcy lawyer, The Road Out of Debt will put you in a better position to face your personal financial problems and deal with them. With this book as your guide, you'll quickly learn when it's best to avoid bankruptcy, when you should seek bankruptcy protection, and, most important, how to work through the bankruptcy process if you choose to take that path.
