"Beyond Paycheck to Paycheck
was the first book I've encountered in the last few years that I
actually managed to read cover-to-cover. Seriously. Somewhere in the
first chapter, while reading about the miracle of compounding interest,
I suddenly had my "A-ha!" moment... and that was it ... something just
"clicked," and I found myself hooked, up until the very end. I have
since found myself referring back to various sections of the book, on
more than one occasion. So I guess you could say that I've utilized it
"Beyond Cover to Cover."
—Barbra Burke, 39, Microbiologist, Camp Hill, PA
