Over the years I have read many financial books. Many were useful in different ways, however those listed here have had a profound affect on me and have genuinely changed my life.
The Millionaire Next Door
The book looks at wealthy people and the way they live and spend their money. What is fascinating is that contrary to expectation, people who have real wealth don’t do any of the things that we perceive the wealthy to do. They don’t live in big fancy houses, drive brand new sports cars or have expensive tastes. Instead, they are very careful with their money and live well within their means, with a large proportion of their income set aside for investment.
Rich Dad Poor Dad
The book tells the story of Robert Kiyosaki and his two dads—his real father and the father of his best friend, his rich dad—and the ways in which both men shaped his thoughts about money and investing. The book explodes the myth that you need to earn a high income to be rich and explains the difference between working for money and having your money work for you.
Think & Grow Rich
Think and Grow Rich! is the most widely acclaimed, influential book on success ever published. For a quarter-century, Napoleon Hill interviewed hundreds of successful men and women under the guidance of the richest man of his time, Andrew Carnegie. In this timeless classic, he reveals the secret to their great achievements—a powerful, proven formula that can empower you to achieve your own most cherished goals, too. If there is one must-have guide you need on the road to high achievement and success—to real riches in every aspect of your life—this is it.
