    Rich Dad Poor Dad

    By Robert T. Kiyosaki In this book, Robert Kiyosaki exposes the failures of an outdated schooling system and the inflation that took the world by storm, especially since going off the Gold Standard. He shows us that with the right mindset, we can reach our ultimate goal of financial freedom. It’s true that money can’t buy happiness, but having control over your time which is your most valuable asset can sure bring you happiness. Spending time with your loved one and getting to pursue your passions is what financial freedom allows you to do and is all what life is about. The author tackles how the 19th century schooling system,…

    Married in Business

    by Jack & Elaine Wyman A book designed not to give you solutions but ideas and a set of rules and examples of how others have done it. This book is divided into two main sections. The first is the base and substance of the book, and the second a series of samples and situations. I was disappointed that the first part was so short. It contains only two chapters of ten or eleven pages each even though the information is very useful for couples thinking of starting a business together. At first I found the second part boring because it was stories of different couples and how they made…

    Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

    This review is tied to the review of the book with the same name, since the movie is the director’s visual representation of a book considered by many a masterpiece. If you have not read the book, read it! And read all the series and read it to your children too. This series of books has all the ingredients to make Harry Potter the Tom Sawyer of the 21st century. If you know that Tom Sawyer is a literary icon, you know what I am talking about. If you don’t know it, now you do. (Actually it would do you and your children a lot of good if when buying…

    Relationship Rescue Review

    If there is one book that will force you to take a long good look at yourself, and at your relationship, this is it. And boy is it worth the read! Relationship Rescue by Dr. Phil I am not a fan of self-help books. I usually find them cheesy and condescending. Dr Phil, however, is honest (brutally so!), simple, and very wise. Going through a difficult time in my own relationship, I wanted a book that would challenge me to honestly evaluate what needed to change between us. I found just the thing. Dr Phil’s strategies are based on simple logic: You own your relationship, so you are responsible for making things…

    Veronika Decides to Die

    When Paulo Coelho (The Alchemist) was a young man, his parents had him committed to mental hospitals three times because he wanted to be an artist–an unacceptable profession in Brazil at the time. During his numerous forced incarcerations he vowed to write some day about his experiences and the injustices of involuntary commitment. In this fable-like novel, Coelho makes good on his promise, with the creation of a fictional character named Veronika who decides to kill herself when faced with all that is wrong with the world and how powerless she feels to change anything. Although she survives her initial suicide attempt, she is committed to a mental hospital where…
