From little acorns grow: MAIN STREET MILLIONAIRES

by Mike Wendland

This showed up in my mailbox the other day -- a gift from Grandpa. I've gotten a few investing type books from him, but this one's a little bit different.

Basically, it's a somewhat fluffy history of the National Association of Investment Clubs (NAIC), an organization that my grandparents have been involved in for decades. A rags to riches story of some ordinary working class folks banding together into investment clubs and becoming millionaires through slow-and-steady investment. Of negligible literary value, but it's great to see grandpa honored by name in the book.
