This is a meta-analysis of entrepreneurship molded into an easily digestible practical skills textbook. More useful than the college course I read it for tenfold.

"Startup communities" are popping up everywhere, from cities like Boulder to Boston and even in countries such as Iceland. These types of entrepreneurial ecosystems are driving innovation and small-business energy. Startup Communities documents the buzz, strategy, long-term perspective, and dynamics of building communities of entrepreneurs who can feed off of one another's talent, creativity, and support.

Guy Montag is a fireman. In his world, where television rules and literature is on the brink of extinction, firemen start fires rather than put them out. His job is to destroy the most illegal of commodities, the printed book, along with the houses in which they are hidden. Montag never questions the destruction and ruin his actions produce, returning each day to his bland life and wife, Mildred, who spends all day with her television "family."

Bradbury is a master of philosophy. The plot is little more than kindling for the grand flame of his scattered, prophetic nuggets of truth.

Tim Robbins did an excellent job with this book, but I do have one complaint. He whispers, and then he SHOUTS and I could not adjust the volume quick enough to spare my eardrums. This is primarily in the first two sections.

Even so, spectacular as a whole, even as a re-read.

Many financial writers try to make you think you have to work hard at investing. You must study stock charts every night. Read annual reports. Thoroughly analyze a company's financial statements. Read the financial press. Buy special software. Hang out in online investing forums. Not so! Don't waste your time. This book takes modern financial theory to its logical conclusion. You can get the maximum long term benefit by following its simple plan. No tedious math or economics theory needed.

As a stock market novice, his droning definitions were actually of use to me. I would recommend this book to anyone who has little understanding of what they're doing with their investments, and I'd recommend it even more to people who don't know why they're doing it. I will invest differently because of this book.
