Library Journal Review

This book is yet another entry in the already crowded "How To Buy a Car" category. Lyle spent considerable time working in the retail auto environment, and she gears her presentation to other women. But her approach is uneven, lacking in new information and including far too many of the author's anecdotes about life in retail. This almost reads like a confessional. The book may be evidence that little has changed in the retail automotive arena since 1984 when Remar Sutton first published Don't Get Taken Every TimeÄstill the best title in this category. Car dealers apparently remain a shifty bunch, but what a potential buyer needs is much more than being told to dress appropriately, leave the boyfriend at home, and stay away from leasing. This book is perhaps entertaining as a tell-all but does not offer anything new or different for those needing help in buying a car.ÄEric C. Shoaf, Brown Univ. Lib., Providence (c) Copyright 2010.
