<b>#1 <i>New York Times </i>Bestseller</b><BR> <BR><b>“Significant...The book is both instructive and surprisingly moving.” —<i>The New York Times</i></b><BR> <BR><b>Ray Dalio, one of the world’s most successful investors and entrepreneurs, shares the unconventional principles that he’s developed, refined, and used over the past forty years to create unique results in both life and business—and which any person or organization can adopt to help achieve their goals.</b><BR><BR>In 1975, Ray Dalio founded an investment firm, Bridgewater Associates, out of his two-bedroom apartment in New York City. Forty years later, Bridgewater has made more money for its clients than any other hedge fund in history and grown into the fifth most important private company in the United States, according to <i>Fortune</i> magazine. Dalio himself has been named to <i>Time </i>magazine’s list of the 100 most influential people in the world. Along the way, Dalio discovered a set of unique principles that have led to Bridgewater’s exceptionally effective culture, which he describes as “an idea meritocracy that strives to achieve meaningful work and meaningful relationships through radical transparency.” It is these principles, and not anything special about Dalio—who grew up an ordinary kid in a middle-class Long Island neighborhood—that he believes are the reason behind his success.<BR> <BR>In <i>Principles, </i>Dalio shares what he’s learned over the course of his remarkable career. He argues that life, management, economics, and investing can all be systemized into rules and understood like machines. The book’s hundreds of practical lessons, which are built around his cornerstones of “radical truth” and “radical transparency,” include Dalio laying out the most effective ways for individuals and organizations to make decisions, approach challenges, and build strong teams. He also describes the innovative tools the firm uses to bring an idea meritocracy to life, such as creating “baseball cards” for all employees that distill their strengths and weaknesses, and employing computerized decision-making systems to make believability-weighted decisions. While the book brims with novel ideas for organizations and institutions, <i>Principles</i> also offers a clear, straightforward approach to decision-making that Dalio believes anyone can apply, no matter what they’re seeking to achieve.<BR> <BR>Here, from a man who has been called both “the Steve Jobs of investing” and “the philosopher king of the financial universe” (<i>CIO </i>magazine), is a rare opportunity to gain proven advice unlike anything you’ll find in the conventional business press.

<p>In her late twenties, Cait Flanders found herself stuck in the consumerism cycle that grips so many of us: earn more, buy more, want more, rinse, repeat. Even after she worked her way out of nearly $30,000 of consumer debt, her old habits took hold again. When she realized that nothing she was doing or buying was making her happy—only keeping her from meeting her goals—she decided to set herself a challenge: <i>she would not shop for an entire year</i>.</p><p><i>The Year of Less</i> documents Cait’s life for twelve months during which she bought only consumables: groceries, toiletries, gas for her car. Along the way, she challenged herself to consume less of many other things besides shopping. She decluttered her apartment and got rid of 70 percent of her belongings; learned how to fix things rather than throw them away; researched the zero waste movement; and completed a television ban. At every stage, she learned that the less she consumed, the more fulfilled she felt.</p><p>The challenge became a lifeline when, in the course of the year, Cait found herself in situations that turned her life upside down. In the face of hardship, she realized why she had always turned to shopping, alcohol, and food—and what it had cost her. Unable to reach for any of her usual vices, she changed habits she’d spent years perfecting and discovered what truly mattered to her.</p><p>Blending Cait’s compelling story with inspiring insight and practical guidance, <i>The Year of Less</i> will leave you questioning what you’re holding on to in your own life—and, quite possibly, lead you to find your own path of less.</p>

Estate planning books often fall into two categories: Those that are overwhelming and full of jargon, focusing on strategies to avoid taxes, or those that provide a general overview of wills, trusts, and estate planning tools and issues at a basic level. <i>Every Californian's Guide to Estate Planning</i> is different: It focuses on estate planning issues that are unique to people who call California home. California is different from almost anywhere else, people come from all over the world to live here, less than 25% of our families fit the traditional model, property is subject to community property rules, and our property tax rates are kept low until a property changes hands. No other estate planning book on the market addresses international issues, how to plan for blended families, how and why community property matters in an estate plan, or how to pass low property taxes on to your children. Written by an estate planning attorney with more than 15 years of experience, complex issues are explained in clear and concise language with lots of examples based on real life stories.
