Janet MaslinDave Barry's Money Secrets is more than just a string of gags. It's a rib-tickling recapitulation of the way these books actually work, beginning with the use of straw men to dumb down their authors' reasoning. Suppose "Bob" and "John" have much in common, including the use of quotation marks around their names. Why is John a big success while Bob can't even afford name-brand toilet paper? What secret method does John have? Simple: he is stealing Bob's cash, food, electricity, cable and small appliances, and also having sex with Bob's wife.
