good advise... a decade ago

This was a solid work, but now neglected by more than a decade of stagnation, phrases like "...in this audio tape..." tape? really? wow. Also spends way too much time telling you about where on AOL you can find financial advise/statistics, and how banks set CD rates. Since I don't leave enough money in interest bearing accounts in the bank, this was not terribly useful to me. Some works stand the test of time, this one could come back to life if someone would give it a through refresh.
Lastly - if you're a member on a monthly plan of, say, 14.95 $/month. Then buying this $8.95 book with a listener credit is not good personal finance (maybe I should write a book?).
