Sorry, I'm not giving away gas cards as in previous giveaways (another gas giveaway is coming soon) but this giveaway is just as useful. You are entering to win the book, "You're Broke Because You Want To Be" by Larry Winget. If you aren't familiar with the book, you can read the New York Times review of the book here.

Don't think you need this book? Ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you worry about how you are going to pay your bills?
  • Are you barely getting by, living paycheck to paycheck?
  • Are your credit cards maxed out? Do you have a shopping problem?
  • Do you have little or no savings? Is Social Security your retirement plan?
  • Are you terrified of an emergency that would leave you financially devastated?
  • Are you clueless about how to fix your situation?
If you answered yes to even one of the above questions, you need this book!

I purchased one copy of this book to give away. The book has a retail value of $20.00.

    I miss Larry's Show that was on A&E, Big Spender! I wish they would bring it back. But getting his book would be almost as good (okay, probably better)!

    I already subscribe via my google homepage.

    I hate to admit it but I answered "yes" to way too many of those questions! I need the book :)

    I love Larry Winget. I used to watch his show Big Spender on A&E back when I was waking up to the fact that I was in the same boat as the people he was trying to help. I needed someone like him to come smack me upside the head 20 years ago.

  34. SavingDiva // November 2, 2008 at 8:51 PM  

    I would love a copy of this book!

  35. Julie // November 2, 2008 at 9:28 PM  

    We've been trying to teach some friends how to change their money ways and this would be a huge help to them.
