It’s Robert Kiyosaki’s position that, “It is our educational system that causes the gap between the rich and everyone else.” He laid the foundation for many of his messages in the international best seller Rich Dad Poor Dad, the number one personal finance book of all time, and in Why the Rich Are Getting Richer, he makes his case.

As a founding member of The Beach Boys, Mike Love has spent an extraordinary 55 years, and counting, as the group's lead singer and one of its principal lyricists. The Beach Boys, from their California roots to their international fame, are a unique American story - one of overnight success and age-defying longevity; of musical genius and reckless self-destruction; of spirituality, betrayal, and forgiveness - and Love is the only band member to be part of it each and every step.

This book covers the basics like how to setup your amazon account, making sure you have scissors etc. If you are starting from scratch and want to walk through the setup process then this book has some basic advice. There isn't much strategy as far as coming from someone who has been there, done that but more of a guide book to getting started and a list of materials that are helpful.

The high-stakes battle between two casino titans over the Las Vegas of the East Coast. It's all quiet now on the eastern front of the American gaming industry - Atlantic City, New Jersey - but for five chaotic years, real estate developer Richard "Skip" Bronson was at the white-hot center of a titanic clash of money and power that transformed Atlantic City from a struggling day-tripper place with buses in and out to a born again destination drawing tourists from New York, Philadelphia, and other major cities along the eastern seaboard.

If you like Boardwalk Empire and think that those days are behind us then read this book and see just how it works today. It's like being a fly on the wall while some of the biggest names in the world deal with everyone from mayors, governors, local politicians and "special interests" as well as each other. You also get a back story of the casino world from the 80s through 2000s. I was captivated from beginning to end.

Facebook marketing may not save your business, but it can certainly be a fast, effective, and rather cheap way to reach new customers and turn those customers into lifelong, die-hard fans. But most small businesses royally screw up their Facebook marketing. That's because all the Facebook gurus talk about "engagement" and "being authentic."

I learned more in this fairly short book than in all the other books I've read on Facebook marketing. Mainly because the rest of them tell you to either be genuine and present at all times or to automate everything (bad idea). Mr Rogan gives you a wheelhouse of ideas and techniques. He even makes Facebook advertising, apps and events easier to understand. I've been using the ideas and changing my pages and have seen an increase in traffic and likes and business. Great book as is the rest of the series.

Cutting edge business philosophy. This book is part autobiography and an inside look at Zappos and includes lots of great information for any business owner or employee who wants to be a leader in today's marketplace. I believe that any business that doesn't follow this modern way of thinking about the customer is in trouble. Zappos is huge but I am working to apply these concepts to small business. Any size business should have it's employees and owners read this book. It's a guide to business and personal fulfillment. I love that Tony reads the entire book himself, it adds a personal touch and you feel like he is talking to you. Best find of the year for me so far! AAA+++
