The Geometry of Wealth


Currently Reading:  The Geometry of Wealth by Brian Portnoy

Best For:  People interested in personal finance – either for themselves or as a profession.

Favorite Quote:  “…If there were a reliable relationship between greater risk and bigger rewards, then technically you wouldn’t be taking more risk.”

Notes: I hesitated jumping into this book at first just because much of what I heard about it came from people on Twitter friendly with author Brian Portnoy.  I thought perhaps some of their opinions were biased on the positive side.  I found right away that I connected with the unique perspective on how finances can tie into your overall well-being.   He uses geometry just as a way to map out his points.
