Ok, it's American, it's dated - it's still a great read.,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Complete Tightwad Gazette (Paperback)This book was published at the end of the last century, and some of the material is ten years older than that. It's unashamedly North American in its outlook, with no references to European material.
Yet for all that it is still a goldmine of nuggets of advice on how to live frugally.
The nature of the newsletter format means that the tips and hints on saving cash are scattered through the book at random, but a very good index makes tracking them down easily.
This is back to basics old-style money saving, and none the worse for it. Yes, it's out of date in many ways with so much of it pre-dating the Internet- but much of the advice here will never date. A money saving recipe for pizza sauce, for example, will still be current in twenty years time.
Worth getting - and the sheer size of it makes it a good buy. It's a BIG book!
