This book has some positive advice, but it jumps around A LOT, has no real flow, is loaded with typos (the title on the bottom of the page is spelled "Parkanomics" on the odd numbered pages), has a very Utopian view of the world, and is extremely repetitious...LITERALLY (the same, exact paragraphs word-for-word appear on pages 37-38, 49-51, 66-68, & 103-104).

I also found that some of Parks' theories and statements revealed her niave, liberal thinking: "The world wars in Europe affected everyone at the same time...what Europeans gained from this hardship were the traits of the New Economy: self reliance, self-responsibility, and self-care." Anyone who has watched the news in the last year and has witnessed what is happening in Greece, Portugal, and the UK knows that Parks' statement is nonsensical. Europe is a vast bastion of Socialism and the reasons for recent riots in Greece and the UK was not due to food prices or political unrest; it was due to austerity measures taken by governments in an effort to stave off financial collapse since there is simply no money left to fund the welfare states these Socialist nations have become. European citizens (by and large) have come to expect their governments to take care of them in all respects and they act like spoiled children who had their favorite toy taken away.

Another statement reveals the author's Socialist mindset; "Obama reminded his daughters that they should fight against poverty and oppression. He can start that process right now by beginning to shift some government funds in the direction of micro financing and micro investing.

Alexia Parks has accomplished a rare feat benefiting us all. Parkinomics is a must read for all people who want to move forward, gain insight into the money game. I highly recommend that people dip into Ms Parks wisdom it is a treasure chest of information. Her excellent writing talent keeps the reader engaged. Ed Shapiro
