    The only book about economics and building personal wealth you will ever need...

    This book provides a very easy to understand and in depth view of the American political and economic structure and how it has an impact on personal wealth. This is the first book on personal wealth that I have read word for word, cover to cover and I even took notes! After reading this I feel that I am an expert on the American political economy and can discuss personal finance and investing with anyone.
