Buffett Beyond Value: Why Warren Buffett Looks to Growth and Management When Investing by Prem C. Jain ISBN: 978-0-470-46715-2

By now anyone who has read our reviews knows we read a great deal about Warren Buffett's investing style.

Buffett Beyond Value: Why Warren Buffett Looks to Growth and Management When Investing by Prem C. Jain helps would-be investors to learn a little more about how the Oracle of Omaha approaches investing.

Jain writes in an easy-to-understand style with many analogies to back up what he is trying to teach his readers.

We would love to read a book on investing written by Buffett.  Unfortunately, he has yet to write one. The next best thing is to read books written by people who have studied his ways and have tried to imitate his investments.

We would love to know how Buffett makes money if he buys stocks to hold forever, but doesn’t look for stocks that pay a dividend.

Five Star Review


The more we read about Buffett, the more we want to know. Buffett Beyond Value helps answer some of our many questions.  We give it all five stars.

Healing: Faith and Medicine: A Medical Professional’s Memoir of Healing and Dealing with Illness by Mark Davis ISBN: 978-1-5127-9936-1




Never before in our recollection have we read a book on faith that actually made cold chills run up and down our spines.  Healing: Faith and Medicine: A Medical Professional’s Memoir of Healing and Dealing with Illness by Mark Davis actually gave us goosebumps.

Davis talks about how possibly the reason we don’t see as many miracles in the United States of America today as we see in third world countries is because here we have more resources to rely on. Perhaps he is right.  However, here, families like us who are well below the poverty level, realize that miracles happen every day.

Five Star Review


This book is incredibly well-written and difficult to put down.  We give it all five stars. We know you will too.



We were sent a complimentary copy of this book.  We are under no obligation to write any review, positive or negative.

Investing in Real Estate, 5th Edition by Paul McGreevy and Gary W. Eldred ISBN: 0-471-74120-5

We review every book that comes into David’s hands unless, for some reason, we can’t give that book at least three stars. We checked Investing in Real Estate, 5th Edition by Paul McGreevy and Gary W. Eldred, which was published back in 2005, out from the Wharton County, Texas library. We discovered there is a newer version published in 2012 that is available.  This review is based on the 2005 version.

Although this book was written in 2005, the information it contains is still timely and pertinent.  These authors did not specifically predict the soon-to-be real estate bubble. They did give information that would have prevented a savvy investor from getting caught in that bubble.

One recurring piece of advice is to do your research and not to trust the advice of so-called professionals without verifying the information for yourself.

Investing in Real Estate, 5th Edition is very well-written and chock full of information that would be of great service to any would-be real estate investor.

Five Star Review


We give this book all five stars.  We think that anyone interested in the topic would probably do well to buy the more updated edition.

Gulag 401(k): Tales of a Modern Prisoner by Richard A. Marin ISBN: 978-1-4834-7876-0


The category listed on the back of Gulag 401(k): Tales of a Modern Prisoner by Richard A. Marin is fiction.  I am not at all sure that is correct.

The back of the book states “In this book, the author recalls his career and explores how to afford retirement…” I am not sure all of that is entirely accurate either.

Readers really aren’t given any significant investing for retirement information.  However, readers are treated to an inside look at the life of the author. This look does not appear to be fiction.  Who could make this stuff up?

We live in a completely different world from the author.  Marin does not see a $35 parking ticket as a significant expense, whereas we will drive out of our way to keep from having to pay a $1 toll on the toll road in Houston.  For us, $35 is 3% of our monthly income.

We really would love to read more of Marin’s writing, especially a little more detailed look inside Bear Stearns and Bankers Trust.


Five Star Review


We give Gulag 401(k): Tales of a Modern Prisoner all five stars.  It is an extremely well-written story that takes us through the author’s very interesting career. We follow Marin from his first day at work on his first job at Bankers Trust to his time as a teacher at a university, all the way through to his planned retirement.  

One can learn a lot about the financial world. Marin does a better job at describing the financial meltdown at Bear Stearns than many of the books we have read that were written to specifically address that particular era in American history.

We would love to read a book that was a compilation of  this author’s in-the-trenches stories of big business and big finance.

Yes, the back of this book is a little misleading. However, readers will not be disappointed.  Readers will be entertained and they just might learn a little bit about preparing for retirement through the eyes of someone who has blazed a trail ahead of us. You should order your copy of Gulag 401(k): Tales of a Modern Prisoner by Richard A. Marin today.  Maybe give one to a friend.




We were sent a complimentary copy of this book.  We are under no obligation to write any review, positive or negative.

Our Marine needs your help.  Please see New York or Bust.
