Much of the book is valid, much of it is more nostalgic. The sections on research remind one with a shock of the difficulty with which information was gleaned before the internet (although he does note the existence of "computer services through which you can communicate with kindred souls"), and the author recommends "education exchanges"/"free universities" -- wow. I remember those, back in the day. The author is also firmly USA-centric. You will read about maps from the US Geological service, but not UK's Ordnance Survey or Natural Resources Canada, and more than any non-American needs to know about Social Security, Medicare, county hospitals, and food stamps. Still good stuff in there, but frequently skims the surface (two pages on childbirth, including pregnancy and postpartum) and lacks a bibliography. ( )
