Thursday marks the 3 month countdown to the release of All The Money In The World, with book buyers starting to look at it. And so I’m thrilled that Publishers Weekly gave the book a positive review this past week. According to the review (which you can read in full here), “Vanderkam explores the ways in which thinking more cogently about money’s role in our lives can bring us peace, and asks: if you had all the money in the world—not literally, but all you wanted—what would you change about your life? … Vanderkam’s gracious, levelheaded polemic will give readers some much-needed sanity around this difficult topic; as she observes: ‘If money can’t buy happiness, perhaps we’re not spending it right.'”
If you’re looking for a little more Laura reading, I also have a column in today’s USA Today called “Entrepreneurs are public servants too.” I point out the strangeness that our government rewards “public servants” (defined to basically include employees at most non-profits) with loan forgiveness, but doesn’t offer the same terms to people who work long hours for low pay to ultimately create the wealth that allows people to donate to non-profits in the first place.
