Fight For Your Money: How to Stop Getting Ripped Off and Save a Fortune 3.7 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 6 reviews.

As this book explains, in vivid detail, not all salespeople are out to trick you. But then again, many are. The ones that aren't still want to make a sale, and they will often hype up the worth of a product you might not need. This book clearly states many sales tricks, and what an honest salesperson will tell you, as opposed to a dishonest one. I highly recommend this for anyone who feels they are overspending, whether at the car lot, the hospital, an auto repair shop or essentially, just about anywhere!

I was very surprised by the things I did not know. I have started following some of the suggestions and they are really helpful. I particularly like that he lists websites and companies that can be helpful. I am going to keep this book and if I run into any of the problems he lists I am reaching for this book first.

This is well-categorized reference book with lots of information on savings to be had, from cellphones to estate planning. Much of it is learned information (I see other reviewers have recommended it as a graduation present, and that is wise), and some is, of course, information that will change quickly (addresses, URLs, bank and finance changes the crash of 2008 will cause), but, at minimum, it offers and encourages a way of looking at one's spending choices and opportunities that can save money. The index makes it easily accessible and manageable.
