Who knew improv and money had so much in common?I thoroughly enjoyed Fully Invested. It is provocative, funny, revealing, informative, and just plain fun to read.
I am coming from a place where I know a lot about finance and absolutely nothing about improv. The parallels are remarkable. Kauffmans vivid illustrations of financial concepts are wonderful- the value of the never-worn celery suit bought on sale in her asset utilization discussion is perfect. Since finishing the book I find myself thinking about different parts, smiling and looking forward to taking in some improv soon. --VP of major financial services firm who must remain namelessFor anyone whos ever found the world of finance to be abstract and intimidating, Fully Invested is the perfect guide for understanding all things money-related.
While Laurie Kauffmans book is full of useful ideas and principles it is also profoundly human- her insights into how we live are fully rooted in real life as we live it. Kauffmans personality shines through every line. Reading this book is like sitting down for coffee with good friend who will not only break it all down for you but also make you laugh, challenge you to think in new ways, and empower you to go out and live more fully. Ive had such chats with Laurie Kauffman and her words have been a great help in running my non-profit theater.
Fully Invested is an opportunity for everyone to spend some quality time with Laurie. --Steve Cosson, Artistic Director of New York-based theater company, The CiviliansLaurie cuts a unique approach explaining financial choices through her personal experiences with improvisational comedy. Its brassy, quick paced and entertaining.--Terry Wells, long-time global leader in sales and business development.
