I thought most of the book was very basic but good reminders for people who forget how to communicate. I thought the narrator voice was very annoying- I prefer someone who talks in a normal human speaking voice (sorry ) so I had to force myself to keep listening. But not horrible overall.

Make Your Kid a Money Genius (Even If You're Not) is a jargon-free step-by-step guide to help parents of all income levels teach their kids - from ages 3 to 23 - about money. It turns out the key to raising a money genius isn't to teach that four quarters equal a dollar or how to pick a stock. Instead it's about instilling values that have been proven to make people successful - not just financially but in life: delaying gratification, working hard, living within your means, getting a good education, and acting generously toward others.

This author literally ripped off everything in this book from other authors, in some cases word for word! Not only that, but it is not about minimalism at all! It's about home organization and has absolutely no information that my 5year old kid wouldn't already know. This is insulting to my intelligence. Seriously, it's so bad that it angers me. And Shame on this author for the blatant plagiarism!

Have you ever felt invisible? Taken advantage of? Reluctant (or unable) to articulate what you really want? If so, join the club. The Nice Girls Club. Nice girls - that's right, girls - are those who are more concerned with pleasing others than with addressing their own needs and who haven't yet learned how to overcome the childhood messages and cultural stereotypes that are keeping them from getting their voices heard, their needs met, and the lives they want.

"The dirty little secret about most organizing advice is that it's written by organized people," says blogger, speaker, and decluttering expert Dana K. White. "But that's not how my brain works. I'm lost on page three." Dana blogs at A Slob Comes Clean, chronicling her successes and failures with her self-described "deslobification process". In the beginning she used the name Nony (short for aNONYmous), because she was sharing her deep, dark slob secret. Now she has truly come clean - with not only her real name but the strategies she has developed.

Do you freeze up when you see an attractive girl? Do you run out of things to say? Do you struggle to attract women through conversation? It doesn't have to be this way. What if you could effortlessly strike up a conversation with any woman, at any time, in any environment? What if you knew exactly how to keep the conversation going (so you never ran out of things to say)? What if you could command women's attention and instantly connect with them? What if you could turn any conversation from boring to sexual?

Everyone knows confidence when they see it; but seemingly no one can actually describe what goes into it or how to get it. The Nerd's Guide to Being Confident is an unconventional way of looking at one of the most basic and obvious human traits and what one can do to gain a little more of it without feeling like a phony. Laughter included.
