From Library Journal
Owing to the popularity of the newsletter Bottom Line Personal, this book is likely to be sought after by patrons. It includes tips previously published in the newsletter as well as some new information on health, finances, self-defense, career, retirement, home, family, vehicles, personal issues, leisure, travel, and education. Articles are written by authorities in those fields and typically include a statement of the author's credentials. Some of the authors are household names?e.g., Peter Lynch, Deepak Chopra, Dr. Robert Arnot, and Jeff Cox. Including both longer articles and shorter, bulleted tips on each page, this guide is a bit more browsable than Larry Roth's The Best of Living Cheap News (LJ 10/15/96), which consists only of longer pieces. Ease of use, accurate information, and the link to the well-known newsletter make this a worthwhile purchase for those public libraries looking to update a consumer affairs collection.?Bonnie L.
