The Only Guide to a Winning Bond Strategy You'll Ever Need: The Way Smart Money Preserves Wealth Today
Larry E. Swedroe
0312353634
March 2006
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Awkwardly organized and unduly complicated, this book provides a recitation of everything Swedroe and Hempen—co-principals of Buckingham Asset Management—know about bonds, which is a lot. The problem is that their book isn't pitched to a specific enough audience. Sophisticated investors may not mind the authors' heavy reliance on bondspeak and analytical jargon, but they will wonder why so many pages are devoted to explaining Series EE Savings Bonds. And novices will appreciate the extensive glossary, but they'll be frustrated by the book's lack of explanatory diagrams and its tendency to talk about concepts before properly introducing or defining them. The actual strategy discussion alluded to in the title is addressed only in the book's 25-page, penultimate chapter, where Swedroe and Hempen explain...

LEAP INTO THE FUTURE, AND SHOOT BACK TO THE PAST

Here are eighteen of the most exciting tales ever told, including

Manhattan Noir
Lawrence Block (Editor)
1888451955
April 2006
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
A pleasing variety of Manhattan neighborhoods come to life in Block's solid anthology, the latest entry in Akashic's city-themed noir series (Brooklyn Noir, etc.). "Building" by S.J. Rozan, for example, brings the reader a strong sense of Harlem, while "The Most Beautiful Apartment in New York" by Justin Scott perfectly presents the Chelsea landscape. Purists may balk at a tale like Liz Martínez's "Freddie Prinze Is My Guardian Angel," which is offbeat and funny but not really noir. Charles Ardai's "The Good Samaritan," on the other hand, offers bad weather, night and even cigarettes. Thomas H. Cook's "Rain" is nothing if not bleak, though it's really just an elaborate sketch. The most satisfying story, Jeffery Deaver's "A Nice Place to Visit," is long enough to develop a full plot, and it's got a hell of...


Business School Confidential: A Complete Guide to the Business School Experience: By Students, for Students
Robert H. Miller
0312300867
August 2003
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
For college students thinking about applying to business school or for those in the workforce considering an additional degree, the authors give the lowdown on taking the GMAT, choosing a school, funding your education, selecting a major, preparing for exams and seeking full-time employment upon graduation. Miller (Law School Confidential) and Loucks, a recent graduate of Northwestern University's Kellogg Graduate School of Management, interviewed current MBA students to get the skinny on the "business school experience." They include handy tips for admissions interviews, getting a federal loan to pay for school, determining an appropriate workload and obtaining that coveted summer internship. Although the advice on "business school etiquette" is somewhat unnecessary ("do not speak out of turn"), for the most...
