“Read “Broke is Beautiful” – It’s Funny!... Lee throws out facts that’ll make you feel better if, for example, you’re trying to get by on minimum wage. “Half of the people on earth survive on less than $2 a day.” She lays it on, fact after fact, until you just have to admit you’re lucky to be living in these times.”
“Author Laura Lee may have well written the Brokelyn manifesto, the recession-victims’ King James Bible and the brokester I Ching all wrapped into one. Her new book, Broke is Beautiful, is a vast, thoughtful and intensely researched tome on the value of living the cash-strapped life.”
Midwest Book Review, June 2010
“Laura Lee gives readers a good array of thoughts and wisdom and makes for a very entertaining and fun read. "Broke is Beautiful" is a choice and highly recommended read which shouldn't be missed for those who want to live well when they got nothing in the wallet."
