Book Review: "Business Bodhisattva" and "A Million Bucks by 30"

I'm not sure what the rules for this community are for free books with unattributed authors, but this might be of interest to folks.

The Business Bodhisattva talks about the spirituality of business and money from a Buddhist point of view, and while it's lite on the practicalities, it does talk about money attitudes and finances as a meta-game and addresses the dichotomy between materialism and spirituality.

"A Million Bucks by 30: How to Overcome a Crap Job, Stingy Parents, and a Useless Degree to Become a Millionaire Before (or After) Turning Thirty" by Alan Corey does a step by step breakdown of how he did it, complete with bank balances and timelines, and a healthy helping of advice and links. Frugality is a virtue, but he seems to cultivate himself as an outsider because of his self-proclaimed (and pride in his) cheap-assness... He marketed himself as that for reality tv at one point. Your milage may vary. I like the creativity for how he attained some of his short term goals; some of the attitude didn't appeal to me.
