Believe it or not, I heard the recommendation for this book on a radio sports talk show. Mark Di Vincenzo's book, Buy Ketchup in May and Fly at Noon: A Guide to the Best Time to Buy This, Do That and Go There, has marvelous tips for consumers.
Which is the best day of the week to eat dinner out? Tuesday. When is the best time to take your work cell phone with you on vacation? Never. I do well with the best time of day to go to the post office, and terrible with the best time of day to have a prescription filled. Di Vincenzo covers a wide variety of topics, from financial issues to education to travel. As a journalist with twenty-four years of experience exposing abuse, he understands consumer interest. He also provides an extensive list of experts who provided answers, ranging from the CEO of the National Association for College Admission Counseling to pharmacists and nutritionists. Di Vincenzo's list of sources covers twenty-nine pages.
Jobs, travel, education, shopping. Buy Ketchup in May and Fly at Noon provides practical advice to assist readers in living life with a little more ease, and, maybe, a little more money.
