    This was a terrible book. I know it was written before the economic downturn, but a lot of their "big money saving" suggestions were just wrong. They teach you how to buy a house with no money down with "creative financing". Isn't that how our nation got into this whole mess?? They also suggest that you reduce the # of exemptions you claim so you can have a better refund. Every other personal finance expert I have read says exactly the opposite - do not give the government an interest-free loan This was a terrible book.

Every other personal finance expert I have read says exactly the opposite - do not give the government an interest-free loan - try to make it that your refund is as close to zero as you can so you can have use of that money throughout the year. If you are looking for money saving tips, look elsewhere.

    This book was truly terrible. I was stunned when I realised it was from 2003 as, like another reviewer said- it seemed like it was from the early 80’s. Lots of very terrible advice including not to have a written tenancy agreement with tenants so you can just throw their stuff out if they miss a rent payment and claim they were squatters if they complain. I mean- what?!?! Give it a swerve.

    The book was published in 2003, but if felt like a book from the 80's. It tried to be funny, but just wasn't my humor. It tried to get laughs from picking on men, but I don't find that very funny either. t was 'tightwad' but a lot of the tips were for 'convenience'. The only reason it's not getting only one star is because there were a few tips from the kids section that I thought I might want to keep in mind: -make a child's table from a regular table by simply cutting off the legs. -mesh laundry The book was published in 2003, but if felt like a book from the 80's.

Put on with brads. -cover different size cardboard boxes with contact paper for building blocks.
