If you have ever wondered when is the best time to buy shoes, when to tweet, and much more – this is a book you must read!

Book Description
Are you thinking that you might have gotten a better deal on a purchase if only you'd known the right moment to buy? Do you wonder if your workout would be more effective at another time of day? Have you worried that your tropical vacation plans might land you on an island paradise just in time for monsoon season?

(1) The best month to buy a cell phone?
(2) The best day of the week to take your car in for repairs? 
(3) The best week of the year to visit Mexico City?
(4) The best time to confront someone who "unfriended" you on Facebook?

Get more for your money, maximize your time, take better care of your health and be savvier about your career—simply by changing the time you do certain things. Timing truly is everything!” – Buy Shoes on Wednesday and Tweet at 4:00

My Thoughts
Buy Shoes on Wednesday and Tweet at 4:00 is a well-organized and researched book that is truly helpful. The chapters are organized on such topics as: getting it, getting rid of it, getting pretty, getting rich, getting healthy, getting the job done, around the house, around the world, and many more.

The author didn’t just make up the best times to do these things either. He lists his sources in the back, so it is up to you to believe what they said about each topic or not. Personally, I don’t agree with all of them based off of personal knowledge on the topics of internet shopping and buying and selling college textbooks. However, in some cases, the sources may just differ with what happened with my experiences.

The book is more of a guideline for me really, and the suggested times to do these things does make sense and is a good guide to doing them. There is a large variety of topics covered, and is a good reference when wanting to get a good deal or figure out when is the best time to do something or go somewhere.

Overall, I did enjoy it and found it to be helpful. I recommend it to everyone who wants to save money and time.
