"The Debt-Free Millionaire is a clarion call for a generation that was brought up on spending tomorrow's money today. As someone who spent time in the financial services industry, I can unequivocally state that Anthony's pragmatic and refreshingly contrarian approach to the real secrets of cash-flow management—and leveraging the credit system—are a breath of fresh air in a smog-choked world of misinformation and confusing financial advice. I can think of a million reasons to read it."
—MICHAEL DIFRISCO President, BrandXcellence

"Read this book. Do what it says. Start living the dream. If you're ready to take charge of your financial future, this is the place to start."
—KEITH J. CUNNINGHAM Keys to the Vault & Business School for Entrepreneurs

"The Debt-Free Millionaire offers unique insights, little known strategies and easy-to-understand practical tools to first manage then eliminate debt. It is a must read for both consumers and financial professionals to better explain the often complex world of debt management. More like getting sensible advice from a good friend than a technical financial advisor."
—ROY BALFOUR President of Ro-Mart Inc.

"Tony has produced a clear and straightforward guide to debt, and how to eliminate it, that is as timely as it is needed. Anyone who follows the program in this book will be glad they did."
—JEFFREY K. MEEK Former Vice President–Recovery Operations, WaMu Card Services

"Great for readers of all ages and in all financial stages. This isn't one of those get-rich-quick schemes. This book provides a foundation for a paradigm shift in your thinking process and allows for you to see how to achieve the seemingly unachievable. I was hooked from the beginning!"
—JENNA KEEHNEN Executive Director,
