Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The author has his research pattern down pat. He consults experts, from Best Buy to a local veterinarian, to get opinions on timing for topics on purchasing that people really care about. Such was the content for his first “when to” book, Buy Ketchup in May and Fly at Noon (2009), and this time he collects a wealth of data, dividing it into 14 categories. Samples abound, such as spreading mulch in late spring, buying high-definition TVs in January, keeping tax returns for seven years, leasing cars in September, and resolving this winter to lose weight. And so on. His diaries keep from being repetitive by his insertions of “did you know’s” and “money-saving tips” and “second opinions” (just in case the first one doesn’t resonate). So we learn that Southwest Airlines is the best for redeeming frequent-flier miles and that experts are divided on whether it is best to be interviewed for a job first or last. Blame his “sources” in the appendix if you disagree! --Barbara Jacobs

“[Di Vincenzo] consults experts, from Best Buy to a local veterinarian, to get opinions on timing for topics on purchasing that people really care about . . . [A] wealth of data.” (Booklist)

About the Author

As a journalist with nearly a quarter century of experience, Mark Di Vincenzo made a name for himself as a reporter who exposed abuses and as a writer who made the complicated seem simple. He won numerous awards before becoming an editor.

During the summer of 2007, he left daily journalism to pursue book projects and to start Business Writers Group, a writing and public relations company. In 2009, Harper-Collins published his first book, Buy Ketchup in May and Fly At Noon: A Guide to the Best Time to Buy This, Do That and Go There, a New York Times bestseller.

Born and reared in Cleveland, he lives in the shipyard town of Newport News, Virginia—two blocks from William Styron’s childhood home—with his wife and two daughters. A third daughter attends the University of Oklahoma.
