Overall Review:  

Give Yourself a Raise is a comprehensive, easy to understand guide on personal money management. Author Gordon Bennett Bleil offers excellent information and sound advice on a myriad of important financial topics. While the book emphasizes debt management, it touches on other essentials like investing, retirement, credit scores, identity theft, and emergency preparedness. The book provides multiple money management worksheets and step-by-step directions on how to use them. My favorite part of Give Yourself a Raise was the Financial Freedom Risk Assessment Quiz. After answering a series of questions, I was able to easily identify a few areas where my family could become more fiscally responsible. Give Yourself a Raise will help readers have more money, less stress, and find sweet financial freedom.
