I'll start this thread to serve as a list for book suggestions. If you have a book you think others would benefit from owning and reading, post it here. Include a short review. If the book is available at, we'll add the book and your review to the Suggest Reading page. I've got 5 books listed there now, and would love to see more.

Bill - Amazon does have that book in stock - what makes it a good one?

Basically Jeff, it tells the story of a guy (Kiosaki) who had two dads. His real dad, who was a school teacher with a cush government job, who taught him to work hard, pay off his house, and let the government take care of him, and, his friends dad, a rich dad, who showed him the way to true wealth by thinking out side the box. Instead of saying "I can't afford that" as his real (poor dad) said all the time, his rich dad would say "how can i afford that" By engaging the right side of the brain and using a little intuitive wisdom, his rich dad who had a 4th grade education, became the richest man in Hawaii. It was his dads work ethic saying work hard and you'll get ahead, and his other dad teaching him to work smart and develope means of passive incomes to work smarter and make money work for him rather than having him work for money.

My wife and I have been playing that game now for a year or so, and we have no doubt making money work for us is going to pay off long before working for money will.

Rich Dad Poor Dad is a must read.

Really makes one think as to what TRUE assets and liabilities are.
