I’ve got the book and Mr. Howard has some very cool discounts/frugal hacks in there. I’m impressed.

I’ve heard of clark howard but I’ve never watched his show or read his books but I liked what he had to say especially about AMICA & 529 Plans. I’ll add Howard’s books to my neverending list of books that I need to read.
