I really have to say that I don't usually like these kind of books, but this book really has a lot of good information in it ! I received free prescription drugs exactly like the authors list in the book. It isn't always super easy, but people don't realize that it really does work ! I would recomend this book to anyone over 50.

I agree with bibliophile. Most of the 'free' things were catalogs. Here's a sampling of the 'free' stuff. L.L Bean Catalogs, pamplets on raising puppies and kittens from Purina, a free copy of 'Sheer Facts About Hoisery', a Lane Bryant catalog, Lilian Vernon and Harriet Carter catalogs, a free photo or greeting from the president. And the list goes on and on. What do these things have to to with seniors? There are about 100 pages in the back where they talk about free prescription programs and some State sponsored programs for seniors. That might be the only redeeming thing in this book. I returned it to Amazon. I only gave it one star because Amazon doesn't allow zero.

Nothing in here we didn't already know. For example: the government offers free information. Join a travel club to get discounts. It wasn't even aimed at seniors. One of the worst books ever. Save your money.

Most of the items in this book were not specifically focused on deals for seniors. I got the feeling that the same contents could have several different covers and be marketed to other niches. In addition, so many of the free things were "free catalogs" or "free recipes"...anyone can get that information off of the Internet without buying a book!

The title is misleading--most of the "Things" in this book are information sheets or booklets, or catalogs. I daresay most of the information in them is freely available online, and not difficult to find. And most have nothing to do with being a senior, but rather are of general interest and available to anyone, usually for the cost of a self-addressed envelope.

Good idea, but a disappointing product.

Most of the information is out-dated, and cannot be used. I am going to keep it though, just in case, there is something worthwhile keeping or using, otherwise, save your hard-earned dollars and senses!

This is a very good book with lots of helpful tips for people over the age of 50. I think it was a very good investment.
