Introduction and Notes by Professor Stephen Arkin, San Francisco University.

‘Young women who have no economic or political power must attend to the serious business of contriving material security’. Jane Austen’s sardonic humour lays bare the stratagems, the hypocrisy and the poignancy inherent in the struggle of two very different sisters to achieve respectability.

Sense and Sensibility is a delightful comedy of manners in which the sisters Elinor and Marianne represent these two qualities. Elinor’s character is one of Augustan detachment, while Marianne, a fervent disciple of the Romantic Age, learns to curb her passionate nature in the interests of survival.

This book, the first of Austen’s novels to be published, remains as fresh a cautionary tale today as it ever was.

    Best known as the author of Rich Dad Poor Dad – the #1 personal finance book of all time – Robert Kiyosaki has challenged and changed the way tens of millions of people around the world think about money. In FAKE: Fake Money, Fake Teachers, Fake Assets, Robert Kiyosaki delivers insights and answers that help ordinary people – who probably haven’t had a lot of financial education – determine what’s ‘real’ and relevant to their financial lives.

    Robert Kiyosaki has built a legacy around simplifying complex and often-confusing subjects like money and investing. He continues to challenge conventional wisdom and asks the questions that will help readers sift through today’s information overload to use truth and facts as a foundation for taking control of their financial lives. Robert pulls no punches in his assessment of what is passed off as ‘fact’ or conventional wisdom and believes that a strong foundation – for anything we want to build – needs to start with solid, true information. In today’s uncertain times, creating a secure financial future and the peace of mind that comes with it starts with taking action and taking control.

    Every day we are bombarded with news reports and information and opinions. How do we decipher fact from fiction? How do we differentiate between truth and lies? And determine what’s real…from what isn’t? Robert believes that it starts with education: financial education designed to make us smarter with our money and better able to fight what’s fake and use what isn’t to secure our financial future.
