  1. I actually just flipped through this book at my local Banres and Noble the other day. Looked decent but decided not to buy it, although after reading this review it may be something I pick up in the future.

    It’s nice to see another blog doing book reviews. I didn’t realize until I really started looking around the whole personal finance blogosphere that I was one of the few doing them. In fact, my blog has an official “library” of titles that I’m getting around to reviewing.

    Gotta throw this out there: All-time favorite book——Atlas Shrugged.

  2. Generational wealth is a real worthy goal…

    So few achieve because they think they cant…

    So start small and save…, there is massive power in the “power of small amounts”
