I look forward to the author's Scam Alert articles in the AARP news each month. In this book, he maintains his quality level of work, if not exceeding it. Scam Alert usually tells the stories of victims of particular scams and then offers prevent this from happening to you guidence. In his book, Sid gives hundreds of useful tips and actions, all provided by named experts, to help you solve any possible consumer problem you may encounter. The advice is not the usual BS you read elsewhere that is comon sense. Rather, the tips talk about secret ways your identity is stolen and how you get overcharged in sleazy non publicized ways. I am a AARP member, but you don't have to be to benefit from Scam Proof Your Life. I have lend it my children who are in their 30's and they have also found it more than useful, and helping to save them money. I am pleased to know that this guy works hard to protect Americans from crooks.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This book opened my eyes about various scams and dirty dealings that occur every day. It's not only informative, but also a good read. Other books that are packed with information can sometimes be overwhelming, but this one has a breezy flow and writing style. Very well organized.Was this review helpful?
