The Great Boom Ahead

Harry S. Dent, Jr.’s book is remarkable both for the overall accuracy of its predictions and for the simplistic model upon which those predictions depend. Written in 1993, it claims a niche within the general family of "trend" books written by the likes of Alvin Toffler and John Naisbitt. The work anticipated our current era of super bullish markets, which it predicts will continue through 2007. The crystal ball drops a few items, given that a few years have passed since publication. Nonetheless, it offers a clear macroeconomic forecast and investment tool. If you sense the Fed just doesn’t get the New Economy, this is the book for you. getabstract recommends this book to those seeking to understand the United States’ era of record-breaking economic gains.

No matter what business you're in, you have to find a way to respond — or risk losing your customers to competitors who are discovering new ways to sell your product or service cheaper, better, and faster than you've ever imagined.

As the dynamic CEO of electronics distributor Marshall Industries, Rob Rodin engineered the astounding reinvention of his company, turning a conventionally successful $500 million business into a Web-enabled $2 billion competitive powerhouse. Free, Perfect, and Now tells the dramatic story of that transformation from the inside. Detailing the hard lessons learned in competitive battle, it offers a compelling new perspective on the most pressing issue facing businesspeople today: how to prepare a customer-focused corporation for a future you can't predict.

How To Retire Rich

Retiring rich is much easier than you think!  Bestselling author James O'Shaughnessy shows you the simple way to create the fully funded retirement you deserve. Most Americans today think they're in good financial shape and are looking forward to a comfortable retirement.  But watch out!  Even if you have a flourishing career and can afford two cars and several vacations a year, the numbers in your savings and retirement plan don't always add up to a wealthy--or financially secure--future.

As investment wizard James O'Shaughnessy points out, in a time when all of us are painfully aware of shrinking Social Security and health care benefits, investing in your future is more important than ever.  But with so much investment information readily available and hordes of money managers pitching their latest theories and methods, how do you know which investment strategies are winners and which are losers?

The Total Money Makeover

Dave Ramsey’s Fundamental Financial Teachings:

  1. Money problems can be solved by adjusting one (or both) of two parts of an equation: income or spending.  When you are in debt you need to either cut your spending or make more money.
  2. The accumulation of stuff can really weigh us down.  Often financial struggles can be resolved by amputating things we have accumulated.
  3. Credit cards have absolutely no place in the pocket of a financially contentious person.
  4. People who are winning financially keep a budget.
  5. A home should only be purchased when you have at least 20% down (thought Dave himself only buys homes 100% down) with your payments (including insurance and utilities) no more than 25% of your take home income.
  6. All people should be saving 15% of their income towards retirement.

Blue Ocean Strategy

The basic idea behind the Blue Ocean Strategy is that an organization may experience higher growth and increased profits by creating new demand in an uncontested market space instead of trying to compete in a market space that is already overcrowded with competitors. Blue Ocean seeks to capitalize on the most basic premises of economic theory which is supply and demand. Is it easier to generate profit in a market that is full of sellers, or in a market in which your company is the only seller. The answer, of course, is in a market where you are the only seller. The challenge in the Blue Ocean Strategy, though, is creating this new demand. Creating is not easy. It requires innovation, creativity, and strong vision. It may be very difficult to establish market share at first in a new market space, but once the difficult first steps are taken, a company can increase profits and growth at exceptional levels. There are four basic principles in the Blue Ocean Strategy that must be adopted by a company: The uncontested market space must be created by:

1-Expanding market boundaries.
2.Focusing on the Big Picture
3.Reaching beyond the existing demand and
4. Establishing and implementing the correct strategic sequence.

Blue Ocean strategy explains that a Red Ocean is where competition already exists. The term Red Ocean is used to denote that is where companies fight each other in a plethora of ruthless and even unethical ways in order to gain an edge over the competition and capitalize on the market. The term red is used to symbolize blood in the water from all the fighting.

Unlimited Power

Unlimited Power is one of the most powerful and well known self-help book by one of my favourite author and motivational speaker Anthony Robbins. The first edition was release in 1987, when Tony was only 25 years old and he claims that the first draft was written in only one month. In his first book, Robbins show us the way to use our mind more effectively to achieve specific goals and success. He puts a lot of emphasis on Neuro-Linguistic-Programming (NLP) methods and writes about different self help topics including health and energy, how to overcome fears, persuasive communication, and bettering your relationships.

The Magic Of Thinking Big

Dr. Schwartz outlines it in his book ‘The magic of thinking big’ so clearly. In every sense, we are raised on a ‘believe you can succeed and you will’ concept but as life becomes a reality:

‘Most people do not put much stock in belief’. Those who believe they can, will find a how-to do it. You see, unfortunately, it is the other way round in many people’s minds. We think we must know how to do it to believe it can happen-how far away from the truth is that! ‘Belief, strong belief, triggers the mind to figure ways and means how-to. And believing you can succeed makes others place confidence in you.’

As young kids, we dream of the ability to fly and become like our idolized superheroes. So, then, what happens as we grow older? why doesn’t everyone think big? There are a couple of reasons, according to Dr. Schwartz:
  • Our environment is consistently weighing us down. Tugging on us, so we remain on ‘second class street’. So you become accepting of being the ‘little guy’.
  • The concept of destiny and ‘whatever will be, will be’ has taught us that control is out of our hands. This, in turn, breaks away all our dreams and aspirations because of the fear of failure (what is the point in trying?).
  • Success seems to have a negative connotation and the proof of that is many people feel they need to come to terms with even thinking of becoming rich. The idea is that we grow up with the concept that money is evil, you will sell your soul to the devil and success comes at a high price.
  • Our society makes us believe that there is too much competition for those high spots up there. In reality, fewer people look for higher paying jobs than lower paying ones. ‘There is at least 50 times as much competition for jobs on second class street as for jobs on first class avenue’.

Are You Living Your Dream?

Overview Our dreams are our vision of the future. The problem is, most people never life their dream. They say ?some day? which becomes a new word called never! But is doesn?t have to be that way. In his reader-friendly way, John Fuhrman tells us what we need to do to change all that. To begin the process, here are some questions you may want to consider? Would you like to get out of debt and be able to pay cash for everything you want and need?

New Rules For The New Economy

Forget supply and demand. Forget computers. The old rules are broken. Today, communication, not computation, drives change. We are rushing into a world where connectivity is everything, and where old business know-how means nothing.

In New Rules for the New Economy, Kelly presents ten fundamental principles of the connected economy that invert the traditional wisdom of the industrial world.Succinct and memorable, New Rules explains why these powerful laws are already hardwired into the new economy, and how they play out in all kinds of business -- both low and high tech -- all over the world. More than an overview of new economic principles, it prescribes clear and specific strategies for success in the network economy.

The Richest Man In Babylon

The Richest Man In Babylon by George S. Clason is a personal financial classic and a book that I have enjoyed.  It was written in 1926 and has a poetic style, telling stories with financial concepts in the form of parables.  These stories not only discuss our relationship with money but also a broader life philosophy. It’s concept oriented and meant to stand the test of time without using financial jargon. The book illustrates the purpose and meaning that we can create in our life by using money wisely. We often get caught up in the details of a certain investment or account type but this book takes a step back and addresses fundamental wealth creation principles to live a happier, more prosperous life in the long-hall.

Mutual-fund superstar Peter Lynch and author John Rothchild explain the basic principles of investing and business in a primer that will enlighten and entertain anyone who is high-school age or older.
Many investors, including some with substantial portfolios, have only the sketchiest idea of how the stock market works. The reason, say Lynch and Rothchild, is that the basics of investing -- the fundamentals of our economic system and what they have to do with the stock market -- aren't taught in school. At a time when individuals have to make important decisions about saving for college and 401(k) retirement funds, this failure to provide a basic education in investing can have tragic consequences.
