Summary:

"Debt stands between millions of Americans and their dreams: owning a home, paying off a car, going to college, and finding a good job. Land of the Fee exposes the hidden system of predatory charges that are often waived for the wealthy and enforced on the middle class. The new normal, hidden fees unfairly keep millions of Americans from their hard-earned money"--
