The 65 chapters cover it all: food, health care, insurance, financial services including on-line trading, automobiles, travel and vacations, lawyers, outlet shopping, cable and direct satellite television, tax-preparation software, organic produce, buying a computer--even the best and worst times to purchase a product or service.

And the authors and publisher so believe in this book that it comes with a guarantee: You'll save money with The Consumer Bible or get your money back. It demands to be placed at the top of every shopper's list.
