Welcome to the October 2017 edition of the Monthly CME. I’ve put together a short list of articles, podcasts, and books for your reading pleasure. Topics will range from personal finance to life-work balance and more. Enjoy!

Benjamin Graham taught Warren Buffet how to invest. This is a classic book!
