Book Review: Holiday Book Guide

Shopping is easy.
You do it at least once a week, just because. It’s fun, relaxing, enlightening and social. You love to shop… except when you have to shop for a gift for someone and you don’t know what to buy. Gah.
In that case, how about a book? How about one of these books:
“The Couple’s Guide to Financial Compatibility”
by Jeff Motske, CFP.
It’s a book that will spur those conversations that are needed, but that’s not all – it’ll also help smooth the bumps on those issues the newlyweds thought were resolved. Hint: it’s not just for the newly wed, either.
“Green Giants”
by E. Freya Williams.
“Sustainability” is a buzzword that your business-minded giftee has heard. Maybe she even wants it for her business – and “Green Giants” might be able to help. This book uses big-business examples to show how it’s done, and it takes a look into the future, too.
“Functional Inefficiency”
It’s a book about goofing off, wasting time, and squandering resources and how it can sometimes actually be good for business! That’s not license to play, though, but wrap it up with a desktop toy, just in case.
“Get What’s Yours”
by Laurence J. Kotlikoff, Philip Moeller, and Paul Solman.
It’s a book about social security: what to know, what to look for when it’s time to sign up for it, and how to get the most out of it. How great is that? Make it even greater by wrapping it up with “Social Security Works!” by Nancy J. Altman and Eric R. Kingson, a book about how to fix Social Security.
“Date-Onomics”
by Jon Birger
If there’s someone single on your gift list this year, do you dare to give them “Date-Onomics”? This book offers real statistics and an explanation of why boy-meets-girl is sometimes just a fairy tale – and how they can make it Happily Ever After.
“Part of Our Lives: A People’s History of the American Public Library” by Wayne A. Wiegand.
It’s a great look at libraries and the people who founded and nurtured them. For deeply passionate book lovers, this is THE gift.
