Meet Our Curator of Books:
Hélène Massicotte

helene massicotte book curatorIn 2013, Hélène set out on a personal goal of reading 1,000 books and is currently at over 250 and counting. While she enjoys all genres, her passion lies in non-fiction with a strong focus in personal finance and business/entrepreneurship.

She reads every book thoroughly, and even has a checklist to decide whether the book “counts” or not:

— It has to be read cover-to-cover (no audiobooks!)
— She must make notes of its salient (a.k.a. “juicy”) points
— She has to capture the top quotes that make it unique among its peers

Hélène will be bringing all of this into our review series here, as well as her Rockstar Rating of each book, who they’re for, their readability, what she liked about them and what she didn’t, as well as recommendations for further reading.

An avid reader of Rockstar Finance, Hélène also blogs herself at FreetoPursue.com, and has been featured numerous times on this site for her brilliant content. She will also be releasing her first book within the next year, which she promises to review here as accurately and unbiasedly as all others ;)

You can reach out to her via email, Twitter @freepursue or in our forums at the handle F2P. You can also learn more about Hélène’s fascinating reading process here: How I Read Books

      So glad you find it helpful, man! Helene is AMAZING with these too… She puts in hours not only reading and taking notes, but summarizing the key points for us with each one :)

    Hello,
    I just wanted to recommend a book. It’s called “The Father’s Recipe for Personal Finance: A Believer’s Guide.” It is a short story involving a conversation between a godly father and his two children who have several finance related questions. The book’s unique advantage is that it differs and compliments the normal long novel containing a large amount of jargon that tends to bore ordinary individuals. This one relates the Word with everyday financial matters while providing a little humor. Late teens, young adults, and their parents can all get engaged. Thank you in advance for your attention.

    The Father’s Recipe for Personal Finance: A Believer’s Guide
    The premier book for believers to learn and educate future generations on relevant money matters using a godly approach.
