We're in the middle of an epidemic of average. So-called "normal" people get up every day, go to work, do what's asked of them, leave promptly at five, and return home to sit on the couch and watch TV. Society tells us that this is what it means to lead a balanced life. Don't stress too much or work too hard. Your career isn't everything. But Grant Cardone thinks this preoccupation with balance has really just given an excuse to be mediocre.

Whatever you think of Grant Cardone. Your right. He is that. Look I’ve read many of business books, motivational books etc. This book speaks to all the feelings I’ve had about money. About how acquiring it should make me feel. As well as the way I felt about not being home with the wife and kids more. Many say they want to be rich or they would like to be rich. I think that’s a lie! They would rather not be bothered. They like the idea of being rich, but not the process of getting there.

A holy man to Hindus, a hero to Muslims, and a criminal to the British, Mohandas K. Gandhi was an inspiring figure of the 20th century, a man whose quest to live in accord with God’s highest truth led him to initiate massive campaigns against racism, violence, and colonialism.

At long last, John Hope Bryant lays out five simple rules to provide a path to economic liberation for anyone in any situation. The Memo provides a simple path from financial literacy and mindset shifts to ownership, positive relationships, and a completely new attitude toward money. In a provocative exploration of the intersections of race and class, Bryant preaches the definitive conclusion that to be free, one must be economically liberated. Those who suffer from poverty haven't gotten "the memo" - until now.

This is one of the best books I've read in a while. There is a plethora of knowledge, mixed with a dose of reality and humor you won't find from many writing about the same topic. Where some are comfortable sugar coating the seriousness of OUR present economic situation. While others still are only lamenting about the economic inequality that has been quietly eroding one class of society. As it simultaneously tightens the shackles of poverty on another. Mr. Bryant isn't just giving you more facts to be unhappy about or someone to point the finger at. He is offering a HAND UP! If your looking for some magic money pill, or scheme to make millions doing no work this book isn't for you. If you want your hand held as someone tells you all the same things that have gotten you right where you are. This book isn't for you. If your ready to take charge of your financial education and future this book IS FOR YOU!

Written by the founder of Operation HOPE and advisor to the past two U.S. presidents, this groundbreaking book makes the case that the best way to get ahead is to figure out what you have to give to a world seemingly obsessed with the question: What do I get? Aimed at a new generation of leaders and extremely relevant for today's economic climate, Love Leadership outlines Bryant's five laws of love-based leadership.

Very well put together. Love leadership puts a finger on the missing piece of our puzzle. As humans we share a common bond that extends past merely breathing oxygen. If we all do our part as love leaders in our city, town, community and home. We will look up from our work and see the prosperity left in our wake. As it's pasted on to the next generation. Bravo Mr. Hope.

When Autobiography of a Yogi first appeared in 1946, it was acclaimed as a landmark work in its field. The New York Times hailed it as "a rare account". Newsweek pronounced it "fascinating". The San Francisco Chronicle declared, "Yogananda presents a convincing case for yoga, and those who 'came to scoff' may remain 'to pray." Today it is still one of the most widely read and respected books ever published on the wisdom of the East.

Bowart's Operation Mind Control: The Cryptocracy's Plan to Psychocivilize You is a classic in the annals of conspiracy research. It is a disturbing account of the secret use of mind control technology, by a secret government (or "cryptocracy"), with an aim to pacifying whole populations and furthering private global-investment strategies. Meticulously researched and well-written, it remains - even today - one of the best books on the topic.
