Review – Playing for More

playing for moreI really enjoyed reading this! I read the whole thing in one day. It’s the kind of book that’s a lot of fun to read. It’s entertaining, and I learned a lot from it.

Review – Practicing the King’s Economy

35138439My experience with this book alternated between good and bad. Some parts of it are inspiring and practical. Some parts I do not agree with (although I acknowledge I could be wrong). This was a very difficult, and sometimes confusing book for me. That’s not necessarily a bad thing.
