Posted by idawrites on May 27, 2009 in Book Review, Frugal Tips, Money |

I signed up a few weeks ago to review the book 10,001 Ways to Live Large on a Small Budget by The Writers of Wise Bread. The book arrived on my doorstep not even 2 full days later. Since then, I’ve been enjoying bite sized pieces of Wise Bread writings. (Look honey, your bad puns have […]

Book Review – The Noticer

Posted by idawrites on April 27, 2009 in Book Review, Decisions |

The Noticer by Andy Andrews is the first book in a long time that I have read from cover to cover in one day. In the style of a favorite uncle telling fables on the front porch, the stories are shallow, enjoyable, and don’t require a lot of hard thinking. I loved this book and it […]

I read an article today at MSN Money that reminded me of an article I wrote last year.  After re-reading it, I felt it was worth a revisit… especially in light of all of the Bail Out talks that have taken the world over. I tried to read Suze Orman’s book The 9 Steps to […]

I have been thumbing through it for the last few days and just marveling over how much has changed, and how much has not changed over the course of 16 years. The book is broken into seasons (Winter, Spring, Summer, and […]

Suze Orman Promotes the Victim Mentality

Posted by idawrites on April 15, 2008 in Book Review, Finance, Money |

I’m trying to read Suze Orman’s book The 9 Steps to Financial Freedom: Practical & Spiritual Steps So You Can Stop Worrying. I just can’t do it! I’m 7 pages in, and already the victim mentality of this book is threatening to overwhelm me. I know that people have difficult relationships with money. Most people, […]

Nice Girls Don’t Get Rich – A Review

Posted by idawrites on April 13, 2008 in Book Review, Business, education |

During my time in the mountains this weekend, I decided to make some quality reading time. I picked up Nice Girls Don’t Get Rich, by Lois Frankel, at the library last week and took it along with me. I don’t generally review finance books because, to be honest, I have read very few that I […]
