I haven't read that one yet. Even though I have my own business (and like what I do), I have other things I'd like to do, too, so I think I'll add "Quitter" to my eventually-to-read list. You never know!
I've been reading "Why Smart People Make Big Money Mistakes and How to Correct Them: Lessons from the Life-Changing Science of Behavioral Economics." Much of it has been really interesting, though now that I'm nearer to the end it feels like it's bogging down a little bit. I've recognized a lot of my own mistakes in its pages, and the authors have given me some understanding of why I make those mistakes, which should be some help in avoiding making them all over again in the future. (In fact, I think it's fair to say that the book I paid $9.20 for will pay for itself many times over; it's changed my thinking about how I'm paying down my credit card debt, potentially to the tune of more than $500 in interest charge savings and a reduction of two months on the payoff date.)
Before that one I read "All the Money in the World: What the Happiest People Know About Getting and Spending," which I had high hopes for (it has a great premise!) but found to be a big disappointment. Written by an ivy-league-educated, upper-middle class blogging mom, it's superficial, oblivious and at times actually insulting (albeit unintentionally) to less-privileged readers. Here's an example of what a mess the book is: for much of it the author preaches the idea that you need to figure out what you value and make your financial decisions according to your values (which I think is a fair point)--but then, out of nowhere, there's this entire chapter on why backyard chickens, vegetable gardens and foraging are wastes of time and money. But the premise, the premise is wonderful, and I hope someday someone less clueless writes a better book around it.
