It did not show how to find the grant offices for applying.
JimKaye
Colossal waste of money... "Travel for free by becoming a tour guide" was just one of their suggestions in the book as an example.
Vegas Girl
Sadly, this book has no good deals and/or free stuff, I got better information from the AARP website and that's free.

This book seems very outdated and you will be much better off by investigating your local Senior Citizens Organizations, Human Services, and Clinics and Doctors will give you today's benefits that can be extremely helpful to Seniors, especially free meds, etc. You don't need to jump through hoops to get onto free med situations and don't have to deal directly with the Pharm. companies. Today you can get aid to do this for you. Just dig into your local Human Services and one lead seems to lead to another, and so on. Sorry, but this contains methods to help that were in print back in the 70's. Do a little work yourself and you'll be amazed how much up to date aid you can receive which is based on Today's Opportunities.

Back when I first became disabled with severe spinal damage that will never reverse without a miricle, I began looking for legal ways to make extra money. The exact same pitch you see here was out, and I took a try with it. I believe the book was not out yet, but from what I have seen, this is an advertisement, not a book. I will tell you for no cost how to get grants. To finish my explanation: It was for a catalogue book I would get in the mail with directions included, which were really not directions and I did get a book of letters that could be written or sent to the government, which was the way to get a grant. While that is true, it is not truth in advertising, from my perspective, or was it worth the $260 (approx.) I paid back in 2004 or 05. It did not show how to find the grant offices for applying. I never found it, until I enrolled in school later on. These are not fully truthful products, the book is a waste of money if you can go on a computer and do a search.

All you need to do is look up: "US.gov" then on the upper right side is a search box> type in "grants" and start reading. You will find all you need to know for no cost, along with where to send to be reviewed by the government grant department to get one. You will need a good reason to get the money, explaining what the money will do and how you intend to do it. It is best to do something of "improvement" for you and the community or people, as in to Help others. If you can write a letter showing good intent, for a good reason, you can get a grant, or at least have a good chance to get one. Just send to the address available in the www.US.gov web portal with the search for "grants".

This is a very good resource for seniors, but the title is rather misleading. Most of the deals are for the over-65 crowd. Too many don't specify the age requirement, and it can be frustrating to call or write, only to find you don't qualify. I would highly recommend this for anyone collecting Social Security; those younger will find themselves in the unusual position of wishing they were older.

This author has really done her homework. This book is chock-full of money-saving tips and ideas for people over 50. We're used to seeing senior discounts here and there, but this presents a myriad of them in one easy-to-use guide. Using this, you don't have to keep a drawer-full of clippings to keep track of what's out there.

This book has a lot of information in it. My problem was that the things listed were all things of which I had no need.
