Buy Ketchup in May and Fly at Noon: A Guide to the Best Time to Do This, Buy That and Go There

by Mark Di Vincenzo,
Harper, 2009

Written by a veteran reporter, this is Di Vincenzo's first full-length book.Want to know the best time to write poetry? The best month to climb Mount Kilimanjaro? The best time of day to take melatonin? It's all here, along with much more. Each topic is covered in short order, with some points having the added value of additional tips, strange but true, or the this-just-in type facts you'd expect from a seasoned journalist.

Since the book is only 168 pages long and couldn't possibly cover everything a body might ask, Di Vincenzo has left himself ample opportunity to delve into the subject further with additional volumes or revised, updated revisions.

A great idea, and includes a list of useful sources at the back of the book. You'll refer to this one again and again.

It's an intriguing title, though I'll admit I'd probably look at in the library but not purchase a copy.

Thanks for the good information
