About the Author:

Jeff Wuorio is an award-winning writer whose previous books include The CNBC Guide to Money and Markets. With more than fifteen years' experience writing about investing and personal finance, he serves as a columnist for Microsoft bCentral and is a nationally known authority on personal finance and how to work successfully from a home office.

From Booklist:

Much like the conundrum of the chicken and the egg, it is difficult to decide whether we were born a nation of consumers or whether the shopping "jones" was forced upon us through external influences. Yet regardless of how we come by our love or disdain of worldly goods, this third in the How to verb (Just about) Everything series concentrates on mastering the arts of acquisition and deacquisition, from intangibles such as happiness and time to uncommon items like a Tuscan villa or a personal gardener. With the help of a dozen journalists (including one Californian "who never met a thrift shop she didn't like"), editor Wuorio reviews and describes more than 500 activities in enough detail to calm a nervous beginner. Each includes (when appropriate) step-by-step instructions, tips (such as "know your limits for online auctions"), and more than occasional warnings (e.g., "coupons, like produce, are perishable. Use them before they expire"). Meaty enough to serve as a long-term reference. Barbara Jacobs
