What's New

In building our collection of available business and financial titles we strive for reliability, lack of bias, and timeliness.  There is a word for such information when it is not timely--that word is "misinformation"!

During the week ending July 31st we added a number of timely titles, including The Golden Rules for Managers.  Originally published in 2000, this title will help establish priorities in a rebounding economy.  The Power of Who shakes up and rebuilds the networking concept, pointing out that you already know everybody that you need to know!  Where Underpants Come From uses inexpensive underwear to explore the web of contacts and exchanges that make today's global economy viable, particularly delineating China's developing economic superpower status.

When it comes to practical personal finance, Miserly Moms comes out in a fourth edition to help families live more frugally while still reaching their economic goals.  Index Investing for Dummies touts unmanaged, diversified exposure in a variety of asset classes.  The 1-2-3 Money Plan, by the syndicated author of last year's Living Rich by Spending Smart, stresses that it is far easier to hold onto a dollar than to earn one.
