The Inside of the Back Cover...

Rob Bennett is paying for vanity-published books and articles in various newspapers and magazines. Here we will discuss these attempts to gain glory in the public eye.

The Inside of the Back Cover...

Postby tashina » 02/13/06 at 23:55:32

...truly deserves it's own post.

I just love the first sentence...so humble, so self-effacing, so very Hocus-like.

Rob Bennett has helped tens of thousands of middle class workers win financial freedom early in life.


How do you think he's compiling those statistics?

Also mentions the days of the Soapbox report and says about himself:

...his discussion board was often hailed as one of the most thought provoking on the internet.


Which discussion board was his?

You know, in the acknowledgements, I am suprised he didn't thank himself for being such an amazing guy.

He says tens of thousands. He must be counting the forty thousand visitors to this site each month. He thinks he's helping them win financial freedom. That is too funny!


Which discussion board was his?

Probably one of the ones he was banned from.

Snort.


I had no idea this book would be so much fun!

The book arrived today. I thought I'd go back and read tashina's threads to see if there was anything she already covered. That inside back cover really struck me, too.

And inside the front cover, hocus has excerpts from a few chapters. This one is wierd . . .

An individual using a budget to plan for his old-age retirement is like an entrepreneur using a budget to plan for the day he goes out of business. --Chapter Ten

This one is wierd, too . . .

Spending is the road to wealth. Everyone knows it too. We don't talk about it much because the conventional money management approach urges us to rein in spending and so it has become taboo to openly acknowledge how great a value proposition spending offers. --Chapter Four


And on the page that usually says something like this, "To my loving wife who's given me support to write this book." Hocus instead writes . . .

To the kind and generous soulful and passionate Sisters of Saint Joseph,
who taught with love at Saint Timothy's Parish parochial school in Northeast Philadelphia in the 1960's,
for seeing to it that I learned the basics of English grammer at a time in my life when I did not view it as a particularly strong value proposition to invest the time needed to do so

From "tens of thousands" to "hundreds of thousands" and now "millions" of retirements are at stake.

hocus is getting swept away by the wave.

When do we get to tens of millions?

From "tens of thousands" to "hundreds of thousands" and now "millions" of retirements are at stake.

Greaney has told us that there are 800 million coming to his site each month.

If we help out only 10 percent of those, that's 80 million people we help out each month.

Over time, it adds up.

An ungrammatical thank you to his grammar teachers. :-/

The nuns did what they could in the grammar department. A lot of the good stuff about how to tell a tale I had to pick up from the other kids.
