Your Mark on the World

Devin D. Thorpe. CreateSpace, $11.95 paper (215p) ISBN 978-1-4782-3969-7
Former CFO, banker, and businessman Thorpe urges readers to act on humanitarian urges by pairing their money and time while working for a single organization about which they feel passionate. The book alternates between chapters of sound financial advice and unfocused inspirational stories that fail to illustrate Thorpe’s ostensible goal: teaching people how to free a bit of income and time to volunteer without affecting career, lifestyle, or family. Beyond the basics of budgeting and saving, Thorpe covers specific issues surrounding earning, spending, and donating money. It’s clear the author is sincere in wanting to use his extensive financial expertise to help better the world, but much of his advice—directed toward middle-class Americans—feels vaguely condescending.
