One of the purposes of reading is to discover new and exciting places. A story well told, will take you on a journey far beyond your land to meet people who are exciting and complex all at once. Yet, you must not be taken too far away that you are not able to understand the conflicts, the interests and the plot of the story. In essence, a great story is one that strikes this balance. This is precisely what Ranch Boy achieves.

I found, however, that Autobiography of a Yogi is anything but dull.

Format: e-course
Author: Rajen Devadason
Price: Free

Today, there are so many people who talk and talk and talk about investing and financial planning; but when it boils down to it, they really do not know the nuts and bolts of it.
