Remember when you were a kid in school and you had to read a book and write a review or give a presentation to the class? I probably didn’t like doing them as a kid but looking back I think it was actually a pretty good thing. It forced me to think about everything I just read and see the whole picture of the book.
As I thought about topics to write about in this blog, book reviews were something I thought might be a good thing to include. I try to read as many books on financial and entrepreneurial topics as I can and so far I’ve learned a lot. I formulate my own personal finance & entrepreneurial strategies not from any one author’s ideas but choose bits & pieces that I like to arrive at the strategies and ideas that I discuss here on this blog.
When I’m looking for a good book to read, I often check out what other readers think. So as I finish up a book, I’ll post my thoughts here, summarizing the things I liked and disliked. (Similiar to way I did book reports in elementary school). The reviews should provide a good refresher for me as well so when I’m trying to remember what the heck I read about, I can just read one of my reviews I’ve written here on the blog.
I’m currently reading the two books that you see pictures of in this post (switching back and forth) so I should have some reviews ready sometime in the near future. If you have a book you’d like to recommend, feel free to post a comment and it may just become the next one on my to read list.
