Amazon Free Download: Extreme Money: Masters of the Universe and the Cult of Risk


I know I already posted a free book today but this one is usually $30 and had good reviews.

Right now you can download Extreme Money: Masters of the Universe and the Cult of Risk for free to your Kindle, PC or Smart Phone.

“A true insider’s devastating analysis of the financial alchemy of the last 30 years and its destructive consequences. With his intimate first-hand knowledge, Das takes a knife to global finance and financiers to reveal the inner workings without fear or favor.”

–Nouriel Roubini, Professor of Economics at NYU Stern School of Business and Chairman of Roubini Global Economics

“Das describes the causes of the financial crisis with the insight and understanding of a financial wizard, the candor and objectivity of an impartial observer, and a wry sense of humor that reveals the folly in it all.”

–Brooksley Born, Former Chairperson of the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC)

“This is the best book yet to come out of the financial crisis. Das is a graceful, witty writer, with an unusually broad range of reference. He is also a long-time master of the arcana of the netherworlds of finance and nicely balances historical sweep with illuminating detail. Extreme Money is lively, scathing, and wise. ”

–Charles Morris, Author of The Two Trillion Dollar Meltdown: Easy Money, High Rollers, and the Great Credit Crash

“Like Hunter S. Thompson’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Extreme Money launches you into a fascinating and disturbing alternative view of reality. But now greed predominates, the distorted world of finance is completely global, and the people making crazy decisions can ruin us all. This is an informative, entertaining, and deeply scary account of Hades’s new realm. Read it while you can. ”

–Simon Johnson, Ronald A. Kurtz Professor of Entrepreneurship at MIT Sloan School of Management and Author of 13 Bankers: The Wall Street Takeover and the Next Financial Meltdown

“You know when Lewis Caroll, Max Weber, Alan Greenspan, and Sigmund Freud all appear on the same early page that you are about to read an intellectual tour de force. Das is an authoritative and colorful critic of modern markets, and here he weaves financial history and popular culture into an entertaining and blistering social critique of how so many people have come to chase endless financial reflections of the real economy. Extreme Money speaks truth to power. ”

–Frank Partnoy, George E. Barrett Professor of Law and Finance at the University of San Diego and Author of F.I.A.S.C.O, Infectious Greed, and The Match King

As always this is Amazon- the price could change at any moment.

Thanks Dealicious Finds!

Amazon Free Book Download: Revenge (A Travis Mays Novel)


I am sure this isn’t as good as the television series of the same name but it sounds like a good read!

Right now you can download Revenge (A Travis Mays Novel) for free to your Kindle, PC or Smart Phone.

When a trained killer threatens ex-cop Travis Mays—and those Travis loves—he finds a skilled adversary and an unexpected fight.

After a high stakes gamble ends in personal tragedy, Travis walks away from years of training and a highly successful law enforcement career. Determined never to look back, he starts a new life and a new career, teaching criminology at the university and building a cabin in the idyllic Idaho Mountains. He hires a beautiful river guide, Jessie White Eagle from the Nez Perce tribe, to guide him safely down the Lochsa. The turbulence of the whitewater, however, is just the beginning of his troubles. Travis finds himself in the crosshairs of a killer—calling himself Creasy—bent on revenge.

This fast-paced thriller takes readers on a wild ride down Idaho’s whitewater rivers, along the historic Lolo Trails once tread by the Nez Perce nation, and onto the city streets of California. Tighten your helmet. This ride never stops until the last shot is fired and the final body falls.

As always this is Amazon- the price can change at any moment!

Amazon Free Download: The Last Page (A Contemporary Romantic Comedy)


Here is another romantic comedy for this time of year!

Right now you can download The Last Page (A Contemporary Romantic Comedy) for free to your PC, Kindle or Smart Phone.

Norah Johnson has everything going for her – a fabulous life; a chance-of-a-life-time, career-thrusting opportunity; a well-to-do supportive family, great style and fabulous friends. But everything comes crashing down around her after the discovery that her college-sweetheart-turned-mega-baseball-superstar boyfriend, Truett Jackson, cheated on her during her Mulan fashion internship. Not only did he cheat, but now his attention-prone-wanna-be-Megan Fox-look-alike actress girlfriend is pregnant with his child – or at least as far as he knows, it’s his child; and consequently, he is now marrying her.

Upon such revelation, Norah endures a heart-breaking confrontation the night before Truett’s wedding that causes her life to spiral downhill into a despair she’s never known. But hey! Girls with great ambition and great fashion sense cannot afford to stay down for too long. But, wait, how can one heal after such heartbreak? Does one ever?

Amazon Free Book Download: Sleeping With Paris


This looks like a sweet little Valentines Day book!

Today you can download Sleeping With Paris to your Kindle, PC or Smart Phone for FREE!

Charlotte Summers is a sassy, young French teacher who is two days away from moving to Paris with the love of her life and from fulfilling her dream of studying at the prestigious Sorbonne University in France. But when she discovers her fiancé’s online dating profile and has a little chat with the busty red-head he’s been sleeping with on the side, she gives up on committed relationships altogether and decides to navigate Paris on her own.

Determined to stop other women from finding themselves in her shoes, Charlotte creates an anonymous blog on how to date like a man in the City of Love—that is, how to jump from bed to bed without ever falling in love. But, with a slew of Parisian men beating down her door, a hot new neighbor who feeds her chocolate in bed, and an appearance by her sleazy ex-fiancé, she isn’t so sure she can keep her promise to remain commitment-free.

And, when Charlotte agrees to write an article for a popular women’s magazine about her Parisian dating adventures—or disasters, rather—will she risk losing the one man who’s swept her off her feet and her dream job in one fell swoop?

Amazon Free Download: My Big Old Texas Heartache


In honor of Valentines Day I have been trying to find some slightly sappy free books!

Today you can download My Big Old Texas Heartache (Cedar Dell, Texas) for free to your Kindle, PC or Smart Phone.

In this USA Today bestselling contemporary romance, Geralyn Dawson invites you to visit Cedar Dell, Texas–a small town with a big heart.

Kate Harmon wonders how life got so complicated.  One minute she’s dating the sexiest bachelor in Dallas and the next she’s back in her small hometown surrounded by grannies, gossip, and green bean casserole. It’s not enough that she’s been forced to finally return to the scene of her Scandal. Her cantankerous father needs nursing, her hormonal, pregnant-for-the-first-time-at-forty sister wants coddling, and her brother, Mr. Perfect, requires rescuing from a situation that threatens the family’s future.  As if that’s not enough, who else is back in town but Max Cooper, former high school football star and the father of her teenage son. And now he wants to date her?

Over the course of a long, hot Texas summer, Kate has the chance to finally make peace with her past and open a door to her future. But will a second chance at love stand in her way?
