WSJ Article on New Advice Books

Today’s Wall Street Journal has a great item on the wave of new personal finance books now hitting the shelves and how the tone has changed from how to get rich to how to avoid going broke. In fact, it is more than tone, the content has shifted. There’s a great skewering of David Bach in the last few paragraphs for nearly pulling a 180 on his advice about home financing.

Further evidence of my thesis that these books just serve up what the readership demands, rather than any sort of objective reality.
