KIRKUS REVIEW

Add a false back to your spice rack to conceal precious items; never accept help from a stranger; subscribe to Moneysworth; turn a cold shoulder to freezer salesmen; don't buy expensive goods from street peddlers; donate your body to science and save on funeral expenses. We didn't count the suggestions here--considering the mind's limits, quality seems more important--but we did spot some predictable patterns. Many recommendations are commonsensical--don't flaunt a wad of bills in public; some border on the absurd--ladies should drive at night with a dressed up teddy bear to divert rapists; and a good proportion are helpful in very specific (and somewhat unlikely) situations. In addition, Bennett and Clagett seem wise to every seam, swindle, bunco scheme, flim flam, and con game perpetrated in the last century. Want to buy a nice watch?
