Thoughts on Sullivan's Thin Green Line: Practical financial advice, via engaging anecdotes

I read Paul Sullivan's book, The Thin Green Line, with great interest. Sullivan is a well-known columnist on Money Matters for The Times, and he writes with great clarity about the abstract world of finance and money in terms of individual anecdotes and stories about people. Overall, I found his simple messages -- about you can't avoid taxes and instead of thinking about investing, best to worry about your spending -- quite heartening in the world of high finance and hedge funds. And I found that a lot of these messages seemingly apply across a whole wide range of economic situations. Overall, a good book with straightforward advice about dollars and cents.
