Acuff knows the reason why many writers' novels go unfinished - it's the same reason why gyms are filled in the first week of January and empty by the end of the month and why people stop learning a new language once they get past the easy parts. It's not just that people lose momentum or get distracted. People give up on projects when they fail to live up to their own high expectations and decide that if they can't do something perfectly, they won't do it at all. If you're going to finish, you have to kill perfectionism.

This book is my personal favourite. This has shown why people don’t finish what they start. This is exactly the kind of guidance I wanted. By writing an imperfect book, this book somehow is made perfect. Thanks Jon.

A book that is certain to spark controversy within the financial media and throughout the halls of government, The Coming Bond Market Collapse sounds a clarion call to investors, business leaders, and policymakers. Author Michael Pento, a noted adherent of the Austrian school of economics theories, compellingly argues that the United States is fast approaching the end stage of the biggest asset bubble in history.

I bought this audiobook after Michael Pento appeared on Robert Kiyosaki's radio show. The most complicated Banking, Finance, and Bond Market concepts are clarified like explained by a radio talkshow host. Edward Griffin explained a lot of concepts in his book The Creature of Jekyll Island that are applied since the inception of Federal Reserve in 1913. But how did these concepts evolved and reapplied in the last 3 decades? Michael Pento explains this very clearly and lucidly in this book, plus the emergence of Bond Market. That is why I call this a sequel to the Creature from Jekyll Island and is a must read for everyone. Now I think I have more knowledge about Banking and Economy than those mediocre "experts" of Bloomberg and CNBC. Hahahaha! Thank you Michael Pento. Thank you Robert Kiyosaki.

  • The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

For decades we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F*ck positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let's be honest, shit is f*cked, and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn't sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is - a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is his antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mind-set that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

Buddhist approach to acceptance in life

Mark Manson actually rewrote Buddhism by teaching it's principles in a modern, practical and logical manner.

About 2500 years ago, Buddha stated the four noble truths of life:

1. Suffering exists in life
2. Suffering arises from attachment to desires
3. Suffering ceases when attachment to desire ceases
4. Freedom from suffering is possible by practicing the Eightfold Path (Google the eight fold path and you will find more information about it)

Thanks to the modern capitalism and commercialism, the modern man lost common-sense and basic learnings of life. They started chasing more desires and happinness.

Now Mark Manson is saying that:

1. Suffering exists in life
2. Suffering arises because people give f*** about desires and fantasies
3. Suffering ceases when people stop giving f*** to desires and stay on a stable life-path
4. Freedom from suffering is possible by learning to not give a f*** about anything or anyone related to these desires and fantasies, and coming to terms with what your life really is. That is by being yourself.

I won't say "that's it". A must read - to understand how "not so complicated" life really is.

Would you listen to Think and Grow Rich again? Why?

Yes, there is so much to listen again and again. It's too risky to ignore them.

What other book might you compare Think and Grow Rich to, and why?

I think the Richest Man in Babylon - this is the Bible. All others, including this book are interpretations.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

You can't make a film out of this. You can make a series of documentaries though.

Your financial advisor does not want you to listen to this audiobook! Are you tired of the same old advice of “save money, invest for the long term, and diversify”? Do you know that your financial planner’s company makes money - even when you lose money? Do you want to learn how and why professional investors increase the velocity of their money, rather than park it?

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Most people I know who read Rich Dad Poor Dad just read that one book and ignore the other books. Somehow I followed through all of his books and I thought this is probably the most important book in the series - if you are looking for more technical knowledge on becoming rich, rather than philosophical knowledge. Don't get me wrong. It is very important to get "RICH People" philosophical knowledge before you get their technical knowledge. But make sure you complete the learning with abundant technical knowledge in the end.

In short, THIS IS A MUST READ. But it is recommended to read this book after reading the two books below -
1. RICH DAD POOR DAD ORIGINAL BOOK BY R. KIYOSAKI
2. RICH DAD'S GUIDE TO INVESTING BY R. KIYOSAKI
