Book Review: A mom's point of view

Heartfelt clear and useful advice for young adults that reflects a mother's love and concern. “A Mom's Point of View” covers many of the things you need to know when you're starting out on your own. This book can save the reader untold headaches, and her parents untold panicky late night phone calls for help. Its strongest section is on financial advice. It describes common pitfalls involving credit, loans, and other financial facts of life, and suggests realistic strategies to avoid falling into them.

Another place where the book shines is in its advice on food, kitchens, household items and meal planning. Having seen my share of college dorms and student kitchens, the book ought to be on the required reading list at many universities.

Near the end, she says “Smiling is Essential.” I cannot think of any better advice for living.
