"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

I especially like the way the author(s) create milestones (they call them stages) to go by on how you are doing with your wealth accumulation progress.
Very cleverly written and a great introduction on the ways to grow wealth!
This and "The Millionaire Next Door" were keystone books that put me on a path to financial success.
If you are just starting out, this book is one of the best for developing both a plan and mindset that it's possible to become wealthy.
It has good information about investing in stocks, bonds, and mutual funds. It also has a lot of advice for those who are starting or building a business.
Although it is good, I think that there are other books on building wealth that are far better. I would particularly recommend 'The Total Money Makeover' by Dave Ramsey. It is written in a more user friendly style and has a great plan that is workable for virtually everyone.
I haven't even read the entire book at the time of this review, but I have to give it 5 stars. This book takes away the smoke & mirrors about investing, and the author's enthusiasm about investing in contagious.
I was a Suzie Orman fan and I'm sure she's a great person, but she comes off kind of arrogant: it's her way, or no way at all. Every couple of years Suzie has to repackage her advice into a new book. I've read most of her books: same song, maybe a different tune.
Larry's book straight plain English with no BS: here's what you need to do, displicine is needed if you're serious, stay way of these investments, when you reach these milestones here are the considerations needed, etc.
The book changed my outlook on investing. You don't need a full service broker. Buy this book, and forget paying commissions. A little research and you can just as good as the pros, provided you do your homework.
