    Lauren Greutman’s story is one that is all too familiar. A young married women wants to live the American Dream: two fancy cars, a custom built home, two income household, one beautiful baby with another one on the way. It was a life with all the bells and whistles that credit cards, bank loans, and money can buy. Then, suddenly, the bubble bursts. The damage of overspending results in a mortgage underwater, a car towed away, $40,000 in debt and a $1,000.00 a month deficit in the family finances. In this story Lauren develops budgets and shows readers how she exchanged the over-rated, stressed-out American dream for a new American dream—a simpler, happier life filled with family and friends and financial freedom. She shows that it is possible to have a happy, healthy, quality life without the financial pressures and stresses that many spenders unnecessarily face.

    Many people feel hopeless or confused when it comes to dealing with money. Even if they have a bookshelf full of personal finance books, they don’t have time to make sense of all the information available. They don’t just want good advice, they want the best advice—so rather than do the “wrong thing,” they do nothing. Their 401(k) and bank statements pile up, unexamined or maybe even unopened. Bad calls about money aren’t failures; they’re just what happens when emotional creatures have to make decisions about the future with limited information. We need to scrap striving for perfection and instead commit to a process of guessing and making adjustments when things go off track. The fact is, in a single page you can prioritize what you really want in life and figure out how to get there. That’s because a great financial plan has nothing to do with what the markets are doing, what your real estate agent is pitching, or the hot stock your brother-in-law told you about. It has everything to do with what’s most important to you. In The One-Page Financial Plan, author and financial planner Carl Richards covers a range of topics, sharing strategies that will take the complexity out of them, including:What about the details? How much do I need to invest each year, and how do I allocate it? How much life insurance do I need?And many more. The most important thing is getting clarity about the big picture so you can cope with the unexpected. But no matter what happens, this audiobook will help you bridge the gap between where you are now and where you want to go.

    To those who don’t speak it, the language of money can seem impenetrable and its ideas too complex to grasp. In How to Speak Money, John Lanchester—author of the New York Times bestselling book on the financial crisis, I.O.U.—bridges the gap between the money people and the rest of us. With characteristic wit and candor, Lanchester reveals how the world of finance really works: from the terms and conditions of your personal checking account to the evasions of bankers appearing in front of Congress. As Lanchester states, we need to understand what the money people are talking about means so that those who speak the language don’t just write the rules for themselves. Lanchester explains more than three hundred words and phrases from “AAA rating” and “amortization” to “yield curve” and “zombie bank.” He covers things we say or hear every day—such as GDP, the IMF, credit, debt, equity, and inflation—and explains how hedge funds work, what the World Bank does, and why the language of money has gotten so complicated. Along the way he draws on everything from John Maynard Keynes to the Wu-Tang Clan, Friedrich Hayek to Thomas Piketty, The Wealth of Nations to Game of Thrones. A primer, a polemic, and a reference book, How to Speak Money makes economics understandable to anyone. After all, “money,” as Lanchester writes, “is a lot like babies, and once you know the language, the rule is the same as that put forward by Dr. Spock: ‘Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do.’”

    “Even in 2012, Ben Graham is still a hero to me”—Warren Buffett Warren Buffett has repeatedly acknowledged Benjamin Graham, a man he personally studied and worked under, as the primary influence on his investment approach. Indeed, there is a direct line between the record-shattering investing performance of Buffett (and other value investors) and Graham’s life. In six books and dozens of papers, Graham—widely known as the “Dean of Wall Street”—left an extensive account of an investing system that, as Buffett can attest to, actually works! In The Einstein of Money, author and business consultant Joe Carlen educates the listener on Graham’s most essential wealth-creation concepts (as selected by Buffett himself), while telling the colorful story of Graham’s amazing business career and his multifaceted personal life. As the author shows, Graham was a brilliant innovator in many areas—from devising a new currency to writing a Broadway play. His complex personality combined impeccable professional ethics with a checkered, even wild, romantic life. Carlen’s biography distills the best from Graham’s extensive published works (including his candid memoirs, released in 1996) and draws from the author’s interviews with Warren Buffett, Charles Brandes, other top US and global value investors, Graham’s surviving children and friends, and select finance professors and authors. In this manner, The Einstein of Money weaves Graham’s transformational ideas into the narrative of a momentous life and legacy. Warren Buffett once said, “No one ever became poor by reading Graham.” By the same token, no one will ever become poor, bored, or uninspired by listening to Carlen’s lively, informative biography of Benjamin Graham and his time-tested techniques for generating wealth.
