Back in the day I'd have given this five stars, but now I play Monopoly so rarely (and find it far less enjoyable to play--as an adult--than I did as a kid when we visited Grandma in California) I decided to only give it three stars. But, if you play, there is valuable knowledge to be gained by reading this book that could really give you a leg up on the competition.

As my personal favorite board game, I found this guide to be very informative in every aspect of the game. To this day I still use the tips and tricks offered in this book, and it has definitely helped me play more strategically. And perhaps one day in the far distant future I'll actually refer to the Monopoly themed recipes that are included. Or maybe not.

Ah, all the secrets of Monopoly in this little book. It's designed to fit inside your Monopoly box (even though it doesn't quite fit in mine) and gives tips for all the color groups, and even a couple recipes. (Yes, recipes!) And Mr. Monopoly gives you the rundown on my favorite board game!

This book is only really for Monopoly players. If you don't play often, then it's not likely to be of interest to you. Otherwise, this is a wonderful book with some great tips and strategy about the game.

8-year-old son loves it - more inspired to read it all by himself than any other book so far

This was pretty cheesy but there were a few good tips on strategy in it.
