    The first inside account of life within a Silicon Valley venture capital firm, eBoys is the fascinating true story of the six tall men who backed eBay, Webvan, and other billion-dollar start-ups that are transforming the Internet and setting a new pace for the economy - an audible.com audio exclusive!

    Sean says: "Entertaining but misinformed"
    "Boring"
    Overall

    I found this one hard to get through. The writer did a horrible job of keeping focus and the story was all over the place. I would recommend Dot.bomb before this one. The only exciting part of the book was eBay's IPO and "the outage." Other than that, a totally snoozer. I couldn't wait for it to be done and I'm glad it's finally finished.

    Story

    The Automatic Millionaire starts with the powerful story of an average American couple (he's a low-level manager, she's a beautician), whose joint income never exceeds $55,000 a year, who somehow manage to own two homes debt-free, put two kids through college, and retire at 55 with more than $1 million in savings.

    Jonathan says: "Common sense, but..."
    "I want my money back so I can invest it instead"
    Overall

    This is a really dangeous book. The only thing I found useful is his recommendation to do automatic deducations for savings and other utility items.

    His advice to "throw out the budgets because they don't work" is scary. I lived without a budget for years and never even knew where my money was going, let alone how much I was bringing in and keeping.

    He also says that "coupon clipping" is for losers, basically. The advice in this book is in great contrast to common sense. Read Dave Ramsey's "The Total Money Makeover" or Dr. Thomas Stanley's "The Millionaire Mind" instead.

    This book is garbage. I only gave it the rating that I did because the quality was good, voice wise.
