Filed under: Personal Finance — ambercouric @ 11:09 pm

What personal finance books do you recommend?  Are there any that you would say not to waste my time reading?

I look forward to reading your recommendations.

  2. I don’t read a lot of finance books, I went and checked out several from the library last week to review on my blog. So far, won’t recommend those! I do like David Bach, the Automatic Millionaire, Smart Couples Finish Rich etc. I really like his approach to money and values, he helped me realize that I was spending money on unimportant things while not investing in what was important to me. And his Latte Factor theory doesn’t work for me but I think it can help a lot of people who fritter away small amounts every day.

  3. I read a ton… Here’s what I would recommend:

    * Financial Peace Revisited (Dave Ramsey)
    * The Financially Confident Woman (Mary Hunt)
    * Thou Shall Prosper (Rabbi Daniel Lapin)
    * Rich Dad, Poor Dad (Robert Kiyosaki & Sharon Lechter)
    * The Millionaire Next Door (Thomas Stanley)

    That’ll get you started and help keep you motivated! Let me know if you want more.
