Ignore Everybody: and 39 Other Keys to Creativity, by Hugh MacLeod So. What should I talk about in this review? I’m not quite sure where to begin with this book.

Rich Dad’s Advisors: The ABC’s of Property Management: What You Need to Know to Maximize Your Money Now, by Ken McElroy I don’t need to get into how much I love Robert Kiyosaki and his entire Rich Dad series. So, when we discovered that one of his “advisors” had a book out under his label […]
