If you’ve managed to run up credit card debt over the years, you’re not alone. Many well-meaning people find themselves in this position, mostly due to a lack of education on how credit cards work. But if you’re now determined to eliminate your credit card debt, The Skinny on Credit Cards can help.

Like the other books in this series, Jim Randel uses stick figures in a hypothetical situation to make his points. As Billy and Beth work on eliminating their debt, Randel offers insights on how they got into this mess, and what their best strategy is for getting out. He also offers advice for young adults as they’re offered their very first credit card. But unlike the other Skinny On books, this one uses less humor and a lot more text.

Credit card debt is a serious problem in the United States. If you’re unsure of how credit cards work, and you’re determined to pay yours off as quickly as possible, this book would be a useful resource.
