Summary
Library Journal: New Beginnings is what Derks terms the period 2010-14, coverage of which is included in this fifth edition of a straightforward reference. Certainly there are free cost-of-living comparison tools online, but this collection of price history tables for goods, salaries, investments, and various side matter yields riches not to be encountered in single-query searches. For example, while many prices dropped during the recent economic downturn, this reference demonstrates in aggregate how they are now "recovering" upward. VERDICT An illuminating compendium for money-crunching history buffs
