I recently had a chance to read the book “More Money for Beer and Textbooks” which is a book written for students in post-secondary education or in their last year of high school or CEGEP. It was written by Kyle Prevost and Justin Bouchard who are both educators and managed to get through their own […]

After (what seems like) years of talking about it, the 2nd edition of The RESP Book is finally available. I’ve added a couple of chapters, fixed a few typos, updated a few things and even fixed a couple of errors. Before you start taking out your chequebooks, I should warn you that although there is […]

E-Myth Revisited by Michael Gerber came highly recommended from some fellow small business owners and I’m really glad I read it. It’s an excellent book which explains how to set up and organize a business so that it is a business and not just a job. What’s the difference you ask? A proper business is […]

I don’t read a lot of personal finance books.  At one time, I did, but eventually it seemed like I had read them all before.  There are only so many ways to save money and perfect your asset allocation. When I heard about Pensionize Your Nest Egg, I got excited about a financial book for […]

There are a few books that are beloved and can be a bit dangerous to review.  YMOYL is the bible to a number of people, so I’ll start with saying that I think there’s a lot of good stuff in there, it’s a solid book and just about everyone should read it.  In spite of […]

“Nudge:  Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth and Happiness” by Richard Thaler and Cass Sunstein is a book about how presenting choices in a different way can lead to widely differing proportions of people making each selection.  At the very beginning they present an experiment where a nutritionist running cafeterias wanted to provide student with the […]

I’ve seen almost every Michael Moore documentary.  I like his movies and I like his persona (he seems like he’d be a lively guest at a dinner party).  I certainly don’t agree with all his politics (but, then, I can’t think of anyone I *do* agree with all their politics).  Recently Preet did an interview […]
