    Thank you for your insight into this field. I would like to win this book because I worry a lot about money, even though I am not in debt. Because I have been out of work a lot over the last few years (my industry in constantly in flux), I work very hard at saving and living frugally. I also took your suggestion and purchased “Pound Foolish”. I’m reading it now and I keep reading bits of it outloud to my boyfriend. It’s very important to me at 33 to make sure I am careful because I don’t even have access to a 401K, let alone a pension. I do wish you would go over what to do in that scenario, too!

    Keep up the good work. Your advice is great!

  3. Thanks to the web and PF authors like you, I’m in a good place with my finances. I’d love to win a copy of your book to gift to my sister and brother-in-law, who are working hard at getting their finances under control.

    Congrats on the new book!

  4. Congratulations on your new book!

  5. congrat on your new book

  6. Tina O'Connor says

    I’m looking forward to reading your new book. I’m paying down my debt and always looking for new information to help me.

  7. Looks like a great book!

  8. I need to get control of money,
    Let me win this book

  9. Love your advice!

  10. So glad you provide a positive role model – with the country and our leaders setting an example in poor spending habits and sending us all deeper and deeper into debt I hope your example will encourge everyone to take control of their debt and live within their means.

    Best of luck with your new book.

  11. I discovered the importance of being a good steward of one’s finances after encountering unknown credit issues in my early 20s. I have been reading your columns ever since. Thanks for always providing sound advice in a way that’s easy to act upon. Best of luck with your latest book!

  12. Looking forward to the new book!! You advice is always right on!!

  13. Liz,

    I’ve ready your column and your advice tips for years. I have been struggling for 10 years (post-college and grad) to get my debt under control. Thankfully, I’ve been gainfully employeed the whole time, living within my means but, still check-to-check seems really unfair for someone who really tried hard to be financially responsible. Education should not feel like shakles or indentured servititude. A copy of your book could finally be the tipping point for me getting ahead.


  14. Appreciate your work. God knows we all need sound $ advice. Hmm, from the title of your next book, I hope someone in Washington D.C. will be reading it. I know I will.

  15. I love following you on Facebook! These days sound financial advices are hard to come by, so I would love to win a copy of your new book!

  16. I love your work, Liz. It is very insightful and helpful. I am in the process of transitioning out of a full-time job/career to help my husband run his business and spend more time with my family. Since I am giving up a guaranteed salary I will need your advice now even more than ever!

  17. Great advice……we should all be educated on how to take care of our money from the time we start kindergarten….it should be part of the educational curriculum.

  18. Thanks Liz for all the great information. I always enjoy the knowledge that you share.

  19. I really love reading your books.

  20. I’m looking forward to reading more on this topic.

  21. Congrats on your new book. I hope I win a copy of this!!!!

  22. I just took “The 10 Commandments of Money” out of the library earlier this month and flew through it! I would love to have a copy of my own.

  23. Having dug my way out of the debt and now being on solid ground financially, I can tell you there is no greater feeling than to be debt-free, know I’m covered in an emergency, and on my way to retirement. Wish I had heeded the advise sooner, but if I made it, others can too. Thank you for the information you provide. Beyond value!

  24. I wanna be free!!! Pick me please! 🙂

  25. Thanks for all you do.

  26. Gwana Hunter says

    Thanks so much for all you do! As I strive to become debt free (mortgage, car note, student loan – zero cc debt) and teach my son about financial responsibility, I appreciate all you do. Your columns are easy to read, understand and explain!

  27. I so enjoy your advise. We just made a move that was not planned and we got ourselves back into debt after I worked so hard to get out of it. I hope your book can give me some new ideas how to get out of debt quicker and how to remain out of debt forever.

  28. Thanks for all of your wonderful advice! I look forward to your FB posts!

  29. Congrats on your new book. I love your column!

  35. Thanks for your down to earth insight that is spoken at a level for the rest of the nonfinancial/economic world. I remember your post several years ago about getting rid of a SUV as a commuter vehicle and followed it. I don’t agree 100% with everything right as everyone’s situation is different, but enjoy your advice and talk about them to my husband and more finance minded friends.

  36. Peter Romano says

  89. Randall Smith says

    My first time commenting but I have been following and enjoying your advice via face book for a couple of years now.

  90. Hi Liz,
    You would think by the age of 47, I would have it all figured out. But I do not. I have had debt since I began my career and I am finally sliding to my inevitable financial demise, and most likely my 20 yr marriage with it. I would like to review your book/s and hopefully be able to turn around my financial “house” before its too far gone.
