Lots of posts on MSB this week – I thought maybe instead of one good post, I would publish three average ones instead.
I ordered quite a few review copies of The RESP Book, and after a couple of weeks of deliberations, Amazon has finally shipped them. I’m hoping this means you will see a few reviews of the book around the interwebs in the near future.
Another book announcement
Jacob from Early Retirement Extreme has released his book, Early Retirement Extreme. Jacob is a very intelligent blogger, who saved a very high percentage of his income and retired at 30. His blog is well worth checking out, even if you are not an extreme saver.
