Quick Ref Owners Guide: Know Everything for $12.95

by JT McGee

I’m a little off-topic today, but hey, it’s not all about how to make money, it’s also about cool stuff to buy with the money you have. So, I wanted to get a head start on some spring cleaning and throw some things away that I had been storing but really didn’t need to store – stuff that I should have thrown away years ago.

Along the way I found all kinds of stuff I forgot I even owned. At least 90% of it was junk, 5% unimportant, and 5% gold.

The best discovery was this: The Quick-Ref Owners Manual, the best inexpensive purchase I’ve ever made in my life.

I really feel like we should give these to graduating high school students when they get their diploma. It literally has everything you ever need to know in life in 800 tiny, Bible-paper thin pages.

Check this out:

Boom! Sophistication!

Page 537 could have prevented the financial crisis:

I bet you were dying to know how parking lots worked.

And usually I can’t stand over-simplified business reads, but this book has a kickin’ finance section:

Or this, since no one actually knows how cases flow through the courts to the Supreme court.

You can grab these for something like $12.95. I don’t think I paid that much, and Amazon has them for $4 used. While you could certainly use Google to find all the information in this book, there’s no way you could find information as quickly, as well organized, or with diagrams like this has.

Anyway, enough singing their praises. This is the best purchase I’ve ever made. What about you?

I agree would love to have one of these in my backpack while traveling.
