Making Life Rich Without Any Money by Phil Callaway
It took a little for me to get into the book, there is a few beginning chapters that go through some statistics which isn't my thing and seeing this book is already almost 20 years old, I sort of just scanned those. But the principles it lays out really are timeless. Nothing earth shatteringly new in them, but in Phil Calloway's trademark humor, you are relating and laughing along and sometimes without even realizing it you've learned both an eternal value and a life changing principle about what really matters and what really brings joy. I love his writing and this book is worth the read for the humor and the reminders of what really does make us rich. And I'll just say that any of his books are great. He takes hard life issues that most of us deal with at some time or another, wraps them in joy and humor and is able to spread a warm message of hope.
I gave it a 9/10
NON-FICTION NOVEMBER REFLECTION
Well, there is only one more day left to the month of November, so that will end my goal of knocking some of the non-fiction books that have been piling up in my closet out of the pile. I must say, I'm pretty proud of myself. I have read a total of 5 non-fiction books. That is some kind of record! And I enjoyed them all (though one of them was a difficult read), which is also another record. I read 2 autobiogrpahies, a memoir, a biography and I don't know where you'd classify this book: study book? self-help book (though it really isn't a SELF-help), essay? I don't know. Anyway, Yipee for me. I'm glad I did this, it really helped. I don't know why I pile up the non-fiction because I do generally like them once I get going on them. Now my pile is reduced to half of what it was.
