Who, after all, really needs to know that there is such a thing as liqueur-flavored toothpaste that comes in anisette, creme de menthe or amaretto ($10 for a box of all three)? Or that, for $330, you can buy a device that starts your car by remote control? Or that, for $26, golfers can buy a putter equipped with compass, horn (to signal for silence), candle (for after-dark play-off rounds), tape measure and level? Or that, for $376,860, you can buy a Piper Aerostar 602P six-seater airplane? Lachenbruch, editorial director of the weekly trade newsletter Television Digest, and Norback, president of a nonfiction book-packaging firm in Princeton, N.J., think we should know, and maybe they're right. Those of us who worry about spending 79 cents a pound for chicken can perhaps take some solace (and/or umbrage) from the knowledge that not everybody feels the same way. (Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, paper, $12.95)
