Reserve Fund Essentials (RFE) has been written to deliver a wealth of real-life practical know-how and insights. It focuses principally on the creation and maintenance of reserve plans for co-owned buildings and properties. These include condominiums and townhouses as well as developments often referred to a homeowners' associaltions, gated communities and managed properties. Membership facilites, such as golf clubs, lodge organizations and religious institutuions will also find RFE of value. RFE includes material on setting up and working with properties' operating budgets. One of the main thrusts of RFE is on the establishment of adequate balances in reserve funds and in operating budget accounts. RFE will appeal to the co-owners of units in the just-described properties. Co-owners are often quite unfamiliar with decisions that affect their funding or operating fee-contributions. Professional service providers including reserve planners, property managers, and accountants will also find the coverage in RFE useful, not only for their own edification but also to help explain these areas to their clients. RFE has been widely accepted by readers in the United Staes and in Canada as a source of solid, easy-to-understand material and useable opinions and advice.

In Jared Diamond’s follow-up to the Pulitzer-Prize winning Guns, Germs and Steel, the author explores how climate change, the population explosion and political discord create the conditions for the collapse of civilization Environmental damage, climate change, globalization, rapid population growth, and unwise political choices were all factors in the demise of societies around the world, but some found solutions and persisted. As in Guns, Germs, and Steel, Diamond traces the fundamental pattern of catastrophe, and weaves an all-encompassing global thesis through a series of fascinating historical-cultural narratives. Collapse moves from the Polynesian cultures on Easter Island to the flourishing American civilizations of the Anasazi and the Maya and finally to the doomed Viking colony on Greenland. Similar problems face us today and have already brought disaster to Rwanda and Haiti, even as China and Australia are trying to cope in innovative ways. Despite our own society’s apparently inexhaustible wealth and unrivaled political power, ominous warning signs have begun to emerge even in ecologically robust areas like Montana. Brilliant, illuminating, and immensely absorbing, Collapse is destined to take its place as one of the essential books of our time, raising the urgent question: How can our world best avoid committing ecological suicide?

Updated June 2017. Is it worth it to fight for your property rights? The first in a series, this first volume answers those questions. Most people don't realize the broad sweeping powers that a board of directors have over your life when you buy a home in an association or a condominium. In fact, you won't know it until you are in crisis. But Shelly Marshall, owner/advocate, has paved a path for you. This book leads the homeowner step by step in how to use everything at their disposal in order to take on and effect change with an Association Board of Directors. Taken from her personal experience with an out of control board, where the homeowners banded together and won their rights back, you can learn from her personal stories and the many stories of other homeowners who take on the good fight. Don't let your board or their attorneys intimidate you. Protect your home and protect your rights. The book contains active links for the sources and additional information. Don't let an Association run over you, but after you for your expertise! This book lays the very basic foundation for the beginner so you don't have to reinvent the wheel. Valuable guidelines continue in HOA Warrior II, Responding to Pets, Paint & Parking in your Associaiton. This first book is where you begin-- then forms, letters, and samples are presented in Volume II along with advice for when you run for the board. These books offer hope and insight into the issues that baffle homeowners when they wake up one day and realize they don't actually own their home in an associaiton. Take heart, as people wake up, unite, and get serious about taking back our rights, we get stronger. You will too. The stakes are high, the steps tough; be prepared.
