    All You Need to Know

    'The Costco Experience' is a straightforward look at how to make the most out of a Costco outing. You get some pointers about what you need to know before you go to help make your shopping efficient. Its both practical and funny, and I identified with a number of stories and anecdotes. Great for the first timer and those of us who make countless trips!

    Enjoying the Circus, Costco Style

    Let's face it - shopping is not the high point of the day. Add the chaos of a gigantic warehouse store like Costco and it can be down right dreadful. But not if you take Larry Gerston's approach. In his The Costco Experience: An Unofficial Survivor's Guide, he shows how shopping at a huge store can be rewarding and fun. The book has reordered my way of shopping, that's for sure. As a Costco shopper, I've always looked at shopping there as a 'have to' ordeal, rather than an enjoyable experience. Yet, this author has taken all of those semi-ugly, if not occasionally painful, situations and put them in a different light. His hints about parking, shopping cart selection, routing, and clothing purchases are common sense ideas I never thought about; and his references to kids, tasting areas, and in-store communication are humorous reflections of what we all go through. If the old 'half-empty, half-full' glass analogy is any guide, Gerston's book bubbles over with enthusiasm.
