    This is probably the most usable, realistic, common sense approach to wealth. Its not one of those be good to the universe nonsense and the universe will shower you with great riches foolishness and just think good thoughts stuff. This is information that anyone can put to work.

    Overall good stuff. My only criticism is that it was a short listen. I think a lot of adults should listen to this audio speech. I am going to look for more books by this author.

  • Go Green, Live Rich: 50 Simple Ways to Save the Earth and Get Rich Trying

    Internationally renowned financial expert and best-selling author David Bach has always urged listeners to put their financial lives in line with their values. But what if your values are a cleaner and greener earth? Most people think that "going green" is an expensive choice they can't afford. Bach is here to say that you can have both: a life in line with your green values and a million dollars in the bank.

    Joel says: "Worst book ever!"
    "Worst book ever!"
    Overall

    The author has many great books but this isn't one of them. I doubt that many of the ideas or tips if you will can save much money, and little to no positive effect on the environment. Case in point, in the book (in my words here) you can save "X" amount of carbon emissions if you get rid of your gas guzzling SUV and get a hybrid. My problem with is simply when you trade that vehicle in or sell it, it doesn't go to the crusher. It still remains in service somewhere, at least in most cases and getting rid of paid off SUV to spend 15,000-20,000 on a 2 or 3 year old hybrid isn't saving any money.

    There is little to no real investment advice on the matter of investing in Green Companies. Buy Green mutual funds. I didn't need too buy this book to tell me that.

    I can't recommend this book, I don't think much research could have been done before this was put together in my opinion.
    If you want green info on saving money and the environment I would look elsewhere.

    Mackenzie Allen Philips' youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later in the midst of his Great Sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend. Against his better judgment he arrives at the shack on a wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare.

    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book. I believe it brings God to each listener in the way you can visualize and perceive him. Others have not liked this book, but then they wouldn't have liked the Pilgrims Progress either. If your looking and searching for a fresh view of what God can do in your life, then try out this audio book.

    "Informative, Insightful, with plenty of color"
    Overall

    I found this audio book to be a really good listen.

    The author gives plenty of his own life experiences but does not over do it. Some amount of actual you "need to do this type info" but some philosophical issues as well. I hope that the author comes out with more bigger and better books over the long haul.

    "Interesting"
    Overall

    Marc gives a laid back approach to getting wealthy in this audio book, titled "The Millionaire Course". The book has a lot of philosophical info, which to some degree is necessary,but also has a fair amount of practical items to sink your teeth into. Overall a bit too much new age, and think good thoughts type of approach but it still gave me things to think over. I rate this book 4 stars, if he puts in a bit more detail in the next edition I could give it a five star rating.

    They were called Easy Company, but their mission was never easy. Immortalized as the Band of Brothers, they suffered huge casualties while liberating Europe in an unparalleled record of bravery under fire. Dick Winters led them through the Battle of the Bulge, the attack on Foy, where Easy Company reached its breaking point, and finally into Germany, by which time each member had been wounded. Outside Munich, they liberated an S.S. death camp and captured Berchtesgaden, Hitler's alpine retreat.

    Tom says: "A decent listen"
    "Outstanding Detail"
    Overall

    I absolutely loved this audio book about Major Dick Winters and the outstanding job that Easy Company did in WWII. Thanks for this work to all who participated, and Special thanks to Major Winters for his service to this country.

    This revolutionary primer on prosperity consciousness has been enriching millions since it was first published in 1910 and was in fact, the inspiration for The Secret. The way to prosperity is no longer a mystery. You too can prosper from the "exact science" of achieving financial success.

    Peter says: "Faith Not Science"
    "Save Your Money!"
    Overall

    This book was nothing more then philosophical, new age, mumbo jumbo. Total waste of time and money. Author offered no real practical or not commonly known information. Stay away!
    If you want more solid information that will help you to get to financial independence, get a copy of books by David Bach or Robert Kiyosaki.

    Are You Ready to Be Rich? If you want to get rich, if you want to be wealthier than you are today, you really need to do only four things. That's right, just four things: you need to make a decent living, you need to spend less than you make, you need to invest the money you don't spend so that it can work as hard for you as you're working for yourself, and you need to protect yourself and this financial world you've built so that a disaster, big or small, doesn't take it all away from you.

    Overall

    While this book has some ok information, the information can be found in most financial books. I would save your money and invest it into something that will pay bigger dividends. If you need financial info 101, this book will do. If its advanced teaching your looking for, you need to keep searching.
