How to give the perfect interview, never lose your wallet again, how to convince anyone of anything by using your pet frog and why rewards fail. Most people would like to be more motivated. For years, gurus and ‘life coaches’ have urged people to improve their lives by changing the way they think and behave, but scientific research has revealed that many of their techniques, from visualization to self-affirmation, are ineffective.

A story of prejudice and acceptance, funny lists and silly words, this new audiobook has all the hallmarks of David’s previous best sellers. Our hero Ben is bored beyond belief after he is made to stay at his grandma’s house. She’s the boringest grandma ever: all she wants to do is to play Scrabble, and eat cabbage soup. But there are two things Ben doesn’t know about his grandma.

The subject of "money" remains one of the most fascinating, thought provoking, emotional, polarizing, and well-researched subjects in the world. Scores of books, articles, blog posts, and speeches have been written on what money is, how to earn it, how to spend it, who has it and who does not, and a myriad of other topics related to the effects that it produces. Yet, despite the constant focus and interest on the topic, there is one word that describes the average person's views around money: confusion.

This is a very informative book about how to live on your income so that you can save money to invest. This investment will then support you in the future so you no longer have to work. He talks about investing your money in stocks to get 12% return. I don't know if this is possible. However his advice is still good. Living within your means and investing the saving for a better future.
