Edith Wharton's classic novel plays on anthropology and man's innate sense that his culture is better than any other. Set in the 1870s, the novel follows Newland Archer as he is torn between his fiancee May, who represents the culture and expectations of the New York City high society he grew up in, and her cousin Madame Olenska, who is more aware of their place in the world and in time. But even he is blinded by his culture into not realizing the part the women and society play in his story.

A workable and simple plan for dealing with debt and learning to live within your means. Charts are included for basic needs and additional small joys you may want from life, as complete deprivation will not work. There are sample scripts for communicating with creditors and suggestions of how to respond if they are rude or try to get you to renew the debt. The plan is to get out of debt and recognizes that overspending is a compulsion and needs to be treated as such. Helpful for those who have gotten in over their head and want and/or need to get out of debt. The plan isn't easy, but provides a way to gradually become free from debt and live a financially healthy life.
