How To Make a Dollar Out of 15 Cents - Book Review

The book store  is overloaded with business books that focus on feelings.  It makes sense if I purchased a book with the expectation that it is going to somehow help me get more money, that I am not looking for a warm and fuzzy feeling.  I just want the information!  Sadly, what I am left with is a stack of books that spend a great deal of time wasting my time.  This is not the case with Daniel Freeman's debut book "How To Make a Dollar Out of Fifteen Cents".

This book is organized in a very consistent manner.  It is broken into three parts : Foundation , Building , and Building the Empire.  Within these parts Freeman details things from buying the right car to building a business.  What makes this book different , is that he comes at each item debunking common misconceptions then giving sound advice.  What also makes this advice so valuable, is that it is something you can put into action right now.  A good example of this is how he gets into savings bonds. One can, at this very moment buy $25 dollars in bonds just to get started.  Most books about money all seem to have a punchline.  At the end they either just gave you a good feeling , or they are directing you to their website to buy their "90 step plan to prosperity".  This book is a complete guide on how to get started and what you need to do once you have started.  This is one of those dangerous books that backs you in a corner; because once you have the information, the only road block is you! I give this book a 10 out of 10!  Buy it now at
