This review is from: 10,001 Ways to Live Large on a Small Budget (Paperback)
I didn't expect much for $10 bucks but was floored by the extensive amount of information covered by this 350 page book. The tips are great in that most of them are easy to execute and applicable to everyone. You can pick up the book, browse through a few sections, and immediately apply the new wisdom in your life.
The sections on finance, travel, and entertainment are exceptional. Tips like how to get the best airfare, lower cell phone bills, reduce your mortgage, etc. can save you money right away. If you like books that get straight to the tips without long intros and boring personal anecdotes, this is the book for you.
I take away a star for the gaudy use of glossy paper for the book. For a book about frugality and being "savvy", wouldn't it be more fitting to print this on recycle paper? There's even a green living section in this book, ironically. Have to admit the colorful design kept my interest, but the tips themselves are good enough for that. No need for the fancy paper.

But since the book is only $10, apparently the glossy paper is perfectly frugal, isn't it?

Taking away a star for the paper a book is printed on is ridiculous.
Coated stock is easier on the eyes and easier to read.
As the previous commenter stated, it obviously wan't too expensive as they could still market the book for 10 bucks.
Comments should relate to content.

Reviews can (and should) relate to the book, everything included, not just content. Who appointed you to the review police?
