The authors present fifty-two brilliant ideas or chapters. These ideas are as basic as "What's in a name?" or "Who told you that?" to "In Deed." Every chapter or brilliant idea has four parts: the idea to try, another idea if the first worked, words of wisdom and Q & A highlights. Using "In Deed" as an example, the authors explain that a deed is a legal record for transfer of land. The idea is to search for property records at the county courthouse. Another idea would be to trace the history of the land. Words of wisdom provides a quote from S. J. Perelman, humorist and screenwriter. "A farm is an irregular patch of nettles bounded by short-term notes, containing a fool and his wife who didn't know enough to stay in the city." In the Q & A, the authors explain land records for homesteaders. Every idea is filled with more detail than my brief example.
