Betsy Ashton's Guide to Living on Your Own

Betsy Ashton, Author Little Brown and Company $12.95 (273p) ISBN 978-0-316-05409-6
This first book by TV consumer affairs adviser Ashton is a compendium of the advice and information she dispenses in response to consumer complaints and inquiries. A concise guide through the maze of urban living, it is a survival manual addressed primarily to recent college graduates, the newly widowed or divorced. Ashton covers a range of pitfalls that may be avoided with forethought and knowhow: how to avoid receiving too much junk mail, find a place to live and distinguish between credit and debit cards are among the topics explicated with authority in jargon-free discourse. Armed with the author's cautions about the dangers lurking in the 20th century jungle, the reader should be less anxiety-prone about the business of life. (June)
