Transforming Your Relationship with Money and Achieving Financial Independence

by Joe Dominguez & Vicki Robin

BFN Book Reviews

Over the years, I have found it tremendously helpful to see what other people with similar interests have been reading on the topics of personal finance. That is why I am periodically publishing my own reviews. I hope to give you a brief overview of the book and the authors, touch on the good and bad in the book, and finally, give you my personal recommendation for whether you should borrow the book, buy the book, or act like the book doesn’t exist.

Reminder: Consider the Total Cost of Your Significant Purchases

HDTV Have you ever watched a high-definition feed on a large HDTV? A few times recently, I’ve considered purchasing one of those fancy, wide-screen, 1080p, LCD or Plasma HDTVs. We were on vacation recently at my sister-in-law’s house and they have a sweet 42” LCD HDTV. Naturally, I’ve been thinking about it again – the prices have been dropping over the past few years and it does provide a remarkable picture! (even watching golf seems better on one of these)

Book Review: The Millionaire Next Door

July 28, 2008 · Filed Under Book Reviews · 4 Comments 

Authors: Thomas Stanley, PhD & William Danko, PhD

My very first book review

Since early 2007, I have read a number of personal finance books during my search to ensure that I was on the right financial path. As I search for other books to read, I also found it tremendously helpful to see what other people with similar interests were reading. My goal is to pass on this information to you as well. I hope to give you a brief overview of the book and the authors, touch on the good and bad in the book, and finally give you my personal recommendation for whether you should borrow the book, buy the book, or act like the book doesn’t exist.

The Millionaire Next Door is the second book I read during this process and it still is what I consider one of the most important to righting my financial ship (shoot, I just gave away the ending!). Click here to continue reading…

My lovely wife and I, along with our children, recently returned from a vacation to visit my wife’s sister and family in Florida. My brother-in-law is a manager at a very expensive and swanky hotel there (I can’t even afford the family rate). So, one night he brings home some caviar for us to try for fun.

Caviar comes in a really small bottle…
