Now, physics professor John D. McGervey puts all the facts and figures at your fingertips to help you make savvy, informed choices at home, at work, and at play. You will learn how the author believes you can:

* Get the most for your dollar when investing or buying insurance
* Judge the risks of such common activities as smoking, using drugs, owning a handgun, and driving without a seat belt

* And much more.
Inside you'll find a lively, entertaining, enlightening approach to minimizing your risks and maximizing your results -- simple strategies designed to give you the edge in life.
