    In Start Late, Finish Rich, David Bach takes the "Finish Rich" wisdom that has already helped millions of people and tailors it specifically to all of us who forgot to save, procrastinated, or got sidetracked by life's unexpected challenges.

    Some of these motivational speakers have it made. They come up with one idea -- one set of tips and advice -- and one book that makes sense and provides people with useful, inspirational coaching. Then they repackage it over and over again, making more money off of the same exact information. That's what David Bach has done with "Start Late Finish Rich." If you've read "The Automatic Millionaire," you don't need to read this. It's all common sense, and it's nice to get a reminder occasionally, but I find it interesting how this book mirrors the other, including the long and irrelevant chapter at the end on giving to charity and tithing. David is a likeable guy, and he reads the book well -- it isn't boring. But don't buy this book AND "The Automatic Millionaire," because if you have one, you have them both.

    One of the most salient features of our culture is that there is so much bulls**t. Everyone knows this. Each of us contributes his share. But we tend to take the situation for granted. Most people are rather confident of their ability to recognize bulls**t and to avoid being taken in by it. So the phenomenon has not aroused much deliberate concern. We have no clear understanding of what bulls**t is, why there is so much of it, or what functions it serves.

    You would think that by now, people who make audiobooks would understand that they need to be spoken, not read. This is so dry, I needed to drink a gallon of water by the end of five minutes. Boring is a word that I use to describe things like waiting for my wife while she's shopping, or a 2-hour meeting at work. Boring is too nice a word for this audiobook. I was hoping to get some insight into critical thinking, but I was stunned at just how boring it was. Do you understand? It's BORING.

  • Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right

    Finding logical inconsistencies, factual errors, and doublespeak wherever he looks, Al Franken takes on and destroys the myth of liberal bias in the media, hoists the Bush White House on its own rhetorical petard, and punctures the mean-spirited sanctimony of such media darlings as Ann Coulter and Bill O'Reilly. Timely, provocative, unfailingly honest, and always uproarious, Lies is sure to raise hackles and spark hilarity inside the Beltway and from sea to shining sea.

    Overall

    Al Franken has done something that is difficult for conservative authors to understand. He has used real research and actual, documented facts to uncover how the radical right (Ann Coulter, Bill O'Reilly, etc.) lies about liberals. I voted for Nixon, Ford, Reagan (twice) and George H.W. Bush (once). I became disgusted by the Republican Party's hate speech about the time that Pat Buchanan spoke at the Republican National Convention. Conservatives such as Ann Coulter (I listened to "Treason" before listening to Al's book) have raised hate speech to a level that is truly frightening. I can see a time in this nation when, because of people like her, we could become like the Arabs and Israelis, murdering each other because of fanatics like this hateful bunch of right wing ideologues. Just look at the title of some of the books on the market: "Deliver Us From Evil" (Sean Hannity calling liberals "evil"), "Treason" (if you don't agree with me you hate America), etc. Fortunately, Franken not only punctures every bit of credibility that Coulter, O'Reilly, Hannity, and George W. have, he does it with humor, not hate; with facts and research, not just name-calling. Anyone with an ounce of critical thinking skills (admittedly lacking in 21st Century America) should have already repudiated this group, but unfortunately, if you repeat lies often enough on TV, a large group of Americans will believe them. Al Franken is a true American who loves his country, and isn't afraid to spank it when it's naughty so that it can grow and develop in a responsible way. Whether you are Republican or Democrat, you should listen to this book. You might learn to distinguish between fact and fiction.
