It's hard to know whether this audio sounds dry because of its focus on numbers or because of the flat narration by Cassandra Campbell. She speaks quickly as well, which contributes to the dispassionate quality of the production. The author's own experience with paying down $40,000 in consumer debt while supporting seven children adds credibility to her collection of money-saving tips. Her practice of donating 10%, saving 10%, and spending the remaining 80% offers enough clarity to help consumers at all levels of financial distress. With tips and strategies for pinching every penny and a reasonable overview of family financial planning, this production is loaded with ideas—but lacking in motivational energy.
