Nancy's Notes - March 28, 2013

“The Future” by Al Gore, “Do More, Spend Less:The New Secrets of Living the Good Life For Less” by Brad Wilson, “Tap Dancing to Work: Warren Buffet on Practically Everything” by Carol Loomis.

Well I guess after all this snow in March we are beginning to believe in climate change even though Global Warming doesn’t seem to be hitting Iowa. Former vice president Al Gore, who has been warning the public about Global Warming, has written  “The Future”. It is a frank discussion of six critical drivers of global change in the decades to come.
Brad Wilson has written “Do More, Spend Less:The New Secrets of Living the Good Life For Less”. It is a map to winning as a consumer.  Wilson, founder of, the largest editorial-driven deal website, provides tips, strategy and real-life examples of things he has personally done over the past 10 years as a professional bargain hunter. Learn how he:
Earned 5m frequent flyer miles, all on the ground 
Stayed two weeks in one of the nicest hotels in Europe for free
Moved his credit score from 400 to almost 800
Found discounts on new cars of up to 25% off
The entire basis for the book is thinking about how best to shop, spend, travel, and bank.
One of the worlds richest men is Warren Buffet. Carol J. Loomis has written, “Tap Dancing to Work: Warren Buffet on Practically Everything”.  When Carol Loomis first mentioned a little-known Omaha hedge fund manager in a 1966 Fortune article, she didn’t dream that Warren Buffett would one day be considered the world’s greatest investor. As Buffett’s fortune and reputation grew over time, Loomis used her insight into Buffett’s thinking to chronicle his work for Fortune, writing and proposing scores of stories that tracked his many accomplishments—and also his occasional mistakes. Now Loomis has collected and updated the best Buffett articles Fortune published between 1966 and 2012, including thirteen cover stories and a dozen pieces authored by Buffett himself.
