Book Review - An Average Joe's Pursuit for Financial Freedom: Change Your Perception of Money by Michael Warren Munsey plus $25 Amazon/Paypal Giveaway

http://beckvalleybooks.blogspot.co.uk/2014/10/book-review-average-j...

This book is well written with clear explanations and descriptions of anything to do with finance. The author uses clever examples of everyday life to make the best use of our money. When we go to work to make money, how many of us actually make the income work for us? 

A chapter is designed for the American market the 401 (k) and the their social security system which I didn't really understand, being in the UK,  but still picked out useful information out that I could use.

The question of does really paying for a good education make you more money, ie being laden with student loans for a long length of time work, is a very apt one for every parent especially when the costs are around £9000 per academic year . Working together with your spouse / partner to work to a budget by creating a spread sheet and sticking to it can have a massive influence on your finances. By identifying what is luxury and what is an necessity is well defined .

This book will give you food for thought and the hints it mentions will make a difference not only to your finances but will also enrich your lifestyle. If you have money / finance problems read this book and also the selected literature that the writer mentions in his book.

Our Beck Valley Books review of Island Fog by John Vanderslice
'a new and refreshing style'....

"A series of short stories around Nantuckett island. The stories are told over two hundred years starting in 1795.

The style of writing reminds of John Steinbeck and Conan Doyle, very unique and keeps the reader totally enrapt. As you follow the series the descriptive narrative paints an excellent image, the nostalgia involved in some of the tales reminds me of my childhood and as we move through the years, the changes in society and the movement of people it is very poignant. The novelist always leaves a twist to the end of the tale which provokes thought and let's you decide the possible outcome.

The interesting thing I found about this book is as we move through the ages people and their thoughts and morals stay the same even if everything else is changing around them. The historic and geographically knowledge and research the author has put into their writing has to be commended.

Interesting tales, descriptive characters, excellent places, makes an intriguing and thought provoking read done in a new and refreshing style, which I hope will lead to more stories. If you like good solid tales built around an interesting place with plenty to think and ponder about this is the author for you. "

Our Beck Valley Books Review - The Dance of the Spirits by Catherine Aerie'a very emotive book'.......

"Set in a time of war the story follows two people from the different ends of the political spectrum. To try and find her way in life a young Chinese woman goes off as a medical surgeon to serve in the Korean War where she sees and absorbs the real truth and results of warfare. On the other side is American Wes Palm and their paths collide with an amazing outcome. 

The true beauty of this novel is the insight of how tough and different it was for a Chinese woman to grow up and follow her own way whilst been dominated by a strict government regime. Also when people speak of war it's mainly always about the battles and the fallen but we tend to forget about the casualties and the people who tended to them without the appropriate medicine or equipment, the authors writing brings this horrible part of war to life with true reality. You feel that you are in the background of every scene. 

The narrative is told from two sides but in truth they both want the same outcome the killing to stop and peace to reign. As these two people lives become entwined we are reminded that they are the innocents and the real guilty parties are the powers to be who are fighting for they own greed. 

This is a very emotive book which will touch every single feeling you can have and will make you think differently about war and the after effects of it. 

The first book I have read by this author but I am definitely looking forward to future publications."

When Officer Bud the PR face of the Boston Police Department is gunned down, his brother, Bogie McGruder, returns from Palm Beach for the funeral. Since the BPD is investigating the death of one of their own, Bogie believes his trip to Boston will be a short condolence visit and a chance to meet his secret love child.

But interacting with a family fueled by alcohol and mired in scandals, Bogie is reminded why he does investigations for his Boston based company from a computer in Florida. Although Bogie wants to contact his ex-lover, Bailey Hampfield, he’s reluctant to do so since Bailey dumped him four years earlier. Knowing that Bailey had his child after she cut him loose, Bogie ponders how he can establish a relationship with the three year old daughter he’s never met. While he thinks about it, Bailey gets in touch with him and asks for protection. Someone is trying to kill her.

By the time Bogie meets Isabella, it’s apparent that he still loves the mother and adores the child. Bogie tells himself that he’s not interested in the BPD investigation into Bud’s death, but he continues to be drawn into it while trying to discover who is attempting to kill Bailey. The investigations seem to parallel each other, then intersect and become intertwined. As the story develops, Isabella, a precocious child obsessed with martial arts, slowly becomes the focus.

The underlying theme of this mystery is lies. Everyone seems to be running on lies and half truths. The only pure and true character is The Girl in White Pajamas.
