Written not by a 'chinless wonder' with no concept of the real world that we live in, but by one who has been there, done it and still wearing the tee shirt!
I have written this book in the hope that it may help others experiencing hardship, and who are at a loss as to how to cope.
We all need friends, someone to lean on during hard times, someone to be there with a few words of advice on where or how to find a way of stretching your money a little further, someone to sit down with you, to help work things out and make life more manageable.
Look upon this book as your 'Best Friend'.
Keep it with you and pick it up whenever you need a little help, or just a little inspiration.
You may think that some of the hints and tips are pretty radical, crazy even, but this little book tells how I cope, how I manage on a miniscule income.
It's not easy - but with determination and a little help from your 'Best Friend' you can manage your life and turn things around.
My final word to you is this -
'Keep your chin up, try your best not to let it get you down because things will seem even blacker if you do - Count your blessings, count and be thankful for what you have, and don't waste your time dwelling on, and longing for, things you haven't got'
