"'Uncle Eric Talks About Personal, Career, and Financial Security' by Richard J. Maybury, and all of Maybury's Uncle Eric series of books on economics, geopolitics, justice, and history...are excellent educational experiences for both children and adults. Just the discussion of the role of 'models' in the functioning of the human mind [in] the first book is worth the whole set. While this discussion is not about science, it describes perfectly the functioning of the minds of good scientists. They do not memorize facts against their models revising the models and checking the facts as they proceed." --Dr. Arthur B. Robinson, President and Research Professor, Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine, commenting on the previous edition of "Uncle Eric Talks About Personal, Career, and Financial Security"
"Homeschooling parents and children can gain much from the wisdom of Mr. Maybury. 'Uncle Eric Talks About Personal, Career, and Financial Security' will help young people get started on a more prosperous life, and it will help their parents see where improvements can be made in their own lives. This outstanding book is just a starting point for study with its many recommended additional resources. Begin with it and move through the Uncle Eric series for a complete four year, high school study of economics, government, business, 'life skills,' and current events." --Martha Robinson, Reviewer for HomeschoolChristian.com
