Book Review: "The Behavior Gap"

What's my rating for "The Behavior Gap"?

I gave the book a 4 out of 5 Rockstar rating.

I once heard a great saying: “Only trust the expert who can explain a complex concept in a way a five-year-old can understand.” To me, that expert is Carl Richards. In this book, Richards explores the ways in which we can be our own worst enemy when it comes to money, and his illustrated examples drive his points home with face-palm clarity.

What's my rating for "Early Retirement Extreme"?

I gave the book a 4 out of 5 Rockstar rating.

Jacob is the real deal. He doesn’t tout himself as an expert, just as someone who has a thesis to share that he thinks might be of value to others. He’s an ordinary guy (with a Ph.D. in physics) who stumbled upon the pursuit of an extremely early retirement in the most simple way possible: by questioning the logic of the status quo. His thought process makes me think I’d greatly appreciate the opportunity to have a conversation with him someday.

Book Review: "Think and Grow Rich"

What's my rating for "Think & Grow Rich"?

I gave the book a 5 out of 5 Rockstar rating.

"Think & Grow Rich" is one of the few books I’ve read many times. To say it offers significant value for the money is an understatement. The author covers so many topics so densely, the material requires us to chew on the ideas and concepts presented, sometimes repeatedly.

I also find the book is effective in eliciting both reflection and action on the part of the reader. I dare anyone to say they’ve read this book and changed nothing in the way they think and/or live their lives.

Hey there F2P readers! I’m pleased to say that my post for today is featured over at Budgets Are Sexy (BAS), a blog I’ve enjoyed reading because of the author's (J. Money) unique take on money, saving and life.

It's about a secret power, one of them at least, that I want to share with you because I think it's one that we can all benefit from. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it.

What's my rating for "The Way We're Working Isn't Working"?

I gave the book a 5 out of 5 Rockstar rating.

It’s an amazing book! Schwartz has done his research and has had a direct hand in helping us learn what leads to great performance. The result of all that effort is this fantastic book, which contains what he’s discovered and has applied in his own life. I could not put it down and found myself saying “YES!” out loud on numerous occasions.
