A book for women who want to get "maximum pleasure and utility" from their car with "minimum expense and stress." The Intelligent Womanâ€™s (Used) Car Book also promotes turning auto-ownership from a "big liability into an attractive and fun investment." It is a myth breaker and confidence building book.
The book starts off by busting the myth, "Buying a used car means buying someone elseâ€™s problems." There were considerations offered in a purchase plan that I have not seen offered in how-to-buy books prior to this reading. Thomsen explains the emotional pull of car buying and how to exercise control over it. The writer also covers private-party sales, special interest cars, and dealer auctions, the "Book" and, of course, checking it out and more.
There is a Quick Reference Guide and one of my favs, a "pocket check list" for take along reminders. This is so clearly written and informative, itâ€™s a quick read. The reader could definitely benefit from this book -- even if you have to grab some readings during lunch and coffee breaks. If youâ€™re looking to buy a car, look here first. It will also give you some interesting things to talk about during future breaks. Enjoy!
