I love this book!It is well organized, lots of ideas, and very funny! Before the end of the first evening we were passing the book around and pointing out sections and nodding our heads.
The authors are the writers of Wise Bread and reading their personal bios was a tribute to the vast amount of knowledge and talent went into the writing of the book. The interesting part was that all look to be around their 30s but many of the ideas they list sounds just like my grandmother. So, I was happy to see that good ideas are passed on from generation to generation.
So here are the subjects as outlined in the table of contents:
Food & Drink
Health & Beauty
Fun & Entertainment
Shopping & Bargain Hunting
Education & Self-Improvement
Financial Planning & Budgeting
Credit Cards & Debt
Investing Your Money
Housing & Home Improvement
Career & Money-Making Ideas
One of the best things about the book was that it was truely entertaining. The Amazon site will allow you to scroll through the book to get an idea of the writing style. One of the most interesting sections was knowing the signs of when you might be next in line to get laid off or fired. We read it with nervous chuckling as I realized I had seen all these in different companies I had worked for and never tried to actually verbalize what I was observing. So true.
A enjoyable book to read and pass around. It would make great Christmas gift for newly frugal converts.
