Jim Cramer’s Mad Money by Jim Cramer

By | July 24th, 2007|Categories: Books, Personal Finance|

I've got to admit, I get a kick out of watching Jim Cramer on TV. His high-octane, nerves of steel approach to investing is exciting to watch and easy to get addicted to. I like watching the show to find new stock ideas to put on my radar. I don't count his word as gold [...]

Book Giveaway :: The 4-Hour Workweek

By | July 16th, 2007|Categories: Books|

This week, I'm giving away a brand new copy of the most exciting book I've read in a long time: The 4-Hour Workweek by Timothy Ferris; but first, congratulations to the winner of last week's book giveaway: Contestant Blog! Surprisingly enough, someone has an entire blog dedicated to entering blog contests. It paid off this [...]

The 4-Hour Workweek by Timothy Ferriss

By | July 6th, 2007|Categories: Books, Entrepreneurship|

Books have a funny way of showing up at the right time. The 4-hour Workweek by Timothy Ferriss was no exception. This book was recommended to me by two regular Genius Types readers, HalOtis and Joe. Thanks, guys; this book knocked me out. You readers really know what you're talking about. If you have any [...]

Aaron Wall’s SEO Book

By | June 29th, 2007|Categories: Books|

I just received my copy of Aaron Wall's SEO Book, and I have to say: it blew me away. I'm naturally skeptical of eBooks, in fact this is only the second one I've ever bought. The first was Steven Aitchison's compilation because he's a friend and it was only £4.99. Since SEO Book costs a [...]

The Four Agreements :: Book Review

By | June 21st, 2007|Categories: Books|

The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz is a book with a solid philosophy on achieving freedom in life. Ruiz draws from Toltec wisdom to convey his simple, yet powerful message. The book begins with a philosophical and spiritual discussion of the nature of reality from a Toltec prospective. Ruiz draws from legend, metaphor, and [...]

Freakonomics :: Book Review

By | June 14th, 2007|Categories: Books|

I've always believed that people don't find books, books find people; and it seems that every book I read adds another layer of truth to that belief. Just when my mindset and writing was focused on the topic of critical thinking, Freakonomics, a Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything by Steven D. Levitt [...]

The Art of Exceptional Living :: Audiobook Review

By | May 31st, 2007|Categories: Books|

The Art of Exceptional Living by Jim Rohn is a two CD set of both live and studio recordings. This was my first exposure to Jim Rohn and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. The older I get, the more I'm attracted to practical advice as opposed to motivational advice; and Jim [...]

Think and Grow Rich :: Book Review

By | May 23rd, 2007|Categories: Books|

I decided to pick up Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill for a second time after having read it five years ago and boy, was I glad I did. I had forgotten how inspiring it was. It's easy to see why Think and Grow Rich is considered the grandfather to all other books on [...]
