    Every economics textbook says the same thing: Money was invented to replace onerous and complicated barter systems - to relieve ancient people from having to haul their goods to market. The problem with this version of history? There’s not a shred of evidence to support it. Here anthropologist David Graeber presents a stunning reversal of conventional wisdom. He shows that for more than 5,000 years, since the beginnings of the first agrarian empires, humans have used elaborate credit systems to buy and sell goods - that is, long before the invention of coins or cash.

    "Not a book to be read while multi-tasking"

    What did you love best about Debt?

    This book gave me a new perspective of how to see the value of money. To think that our dollar doesn't have the value (what backs it up) was mind blowing for me.

    Would you listen to Entreleadership again? Why?

    I will listen to this book once every quarter.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book is so good, and it got me so pumped and motivated that I had to stop reading it. I would listen to the audio book for 15 minutes and had to stop for 30 minutes because my heart was pounding to much. This is really a great book.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are looking for a solution to a poor company culture this is it. The change starts with the business owner. And this book takes you by the hand and shows you the way.

    "Investing means different things to different people. In fact, there are different investments for the rich, poor, and middle class. Rich Dad’s Guide to Investing is a long-term guide for anyone who wants to become a rich investor and invest in what the rich invest in. As the title states, it is a "guide" and offers no guarantees... only guidance.” (Robert Kiyosaki)

    If you want to stop working for your money and make your money work for you this should be the first book you read. I think the instruction part of how to get there is vague, but he will definitely get your thinking process started after reading this book.

    An insider of both the Bush and Obama administrations offers an irrefutable indictment of the mishandling of the $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program bailouts and the extreme degree to which our government officials—from both parties—served the interests of Wall Street at the expense of the public. From his first day on the job as the special inspector general in charge of overseeing the distribution of the bailout money, Neil Barofsky found that the officials at the Treasury Department in charge of the bailouts were in thrall to the interests of the big banks.

    Schulte says: "Must Read on Wall Street and TARP"

    What did you love best about Bailout?

    I loved that it gives an insider perspective of what was going on during the bailout process. And I have to say the news media left out a lot of details.
