I don't know where to start with this one

Title: Dave Barry's Money Secrets
Author: Dave Barry

Read this book. Financial advice from a humor columnist - there's nothing remotely useful, but it's hilarious.

A brief excerpt:

Chapter 11 - Starting Your Own Business: Harness the Awesome Power of Human Stupidity

Consider the following people: John D. Rockefeller. Thomas Edison. Henry Ford. Irving Chevrolet. General Electric. What do they have in common?
Correct: They are all dead. But before they died, they got really rich. And do you know why? They started their own businesses.
Why can't you do the same thing? Why shouldn't you benefit from your talents?
One reason, of course, is that you don't really have any talent. But that shouldn't stop you any more than it stopped Paris Hilton.

Do I need to say any more?
