Did you ever wish that you really understood money? Well, Dave Barry wishes that he did, too. But that hasn¡¯t stopped him from writing this book. In it, Dave explores (as only he can) such topics as:

? How the U.S. economy works, including the often overlooked role of Adam Sandler
? Why it is not a good idea to use squirrels for money
? Strategies that will give you the confidence you need to try for a good job, even though you are¡ªlet¡¯s be honest¡ªa no-talent loser
? How corporate executives, simply by walking into their offices, immediately become much stupider
? An absolutely foolproof system for making money in the stock market, requiring only a little effort (and access to time travel)
? Surefire tips for buying and selling real estate, the key being: Never buy¡ªor, for that matter, sell¡ªreal estate
? How to minimize your federal taxes, safely and legally, by cheating
? Why good colleges cost so much, and how to make sure your child does not get into one
? How to reduce the cost of your medical care by basically not getting any
? Estate planning, especially the financial benefits of an early death
? And many, many pictures of Suze Orman

But that¡¯s only the beginning! Dave has also included in this book all of the important points from a book written by Donald Trump, so you don¡¯t have to read it yourself. Plus he explains how to tip, how to negotiate for everything (including bridge tolls), how to argue with your spouse about money, and how much allowance to give your children (three dollars is plenty). He also presents, for the first time in print anywhere, the Car Dealership Code of Ethics (Ethic Seven: The customer is an idiot). Also, there are many gratuitous references to Angelina Jolie naked. You can¡¯t afford not to buy this book! Probably you need several copies.
