I got this book after reading the review in my parents' AARP magazine. There are some good tips for all types of things - cars, homes, college (in AARP?), medical errors, health ripoffs, etc. I put a question mark after college because AARP is supposedly for the 50+ crowd. Unless you're a late-bloomer in the family department, I can't fathom why it's in here. Also, alot of community colleges allow seniors to take one class free per semester! Ha! That's not in there! I lent it to my parents and they pretty much had the same response ... it's pretty much all common sense stuff.
