USA Today headlined "The Broke Diaries is the New Economy's version of Down and Out in Paris and London, George Orwell's 1933 book about the urban poor...What makes Nissel's book shine is her unsentimental prose and wicked sense of humor." (full USA Today review can be found here).

So, what's this Broke Diaries ruckus all about?

"I'm so broke I'm going to knock out my own tooth and pray the tooth fairy is down for adults."

When Angela Nissel found herself struggling financially when in college, instead of sulking, she decided to entertain herself by creating an online journal that chronicled her day-to-day trials and tribulations. Written with humor and intelligence, her "Broke Diary" quickly found an audience as people wrote to Angela to empathize with, console, and laugh with her about her experiences and even share their own.

The book goes far beyond boring tales of eating Ramen day after day. The stories are entertaining (ever date a chicken farmer for a free meal?), educational (how to get free textbooks without getting caught!) and oddly inspiring (you too can get free drinks at any club!).

The Broke Diaries is the first complete compilation of Nissel's experiences, written in a voice that is funny, unique, and dead-on.
