Today I’m here to recommend you to read these eight Financial Books that I find very interesting and helpful. For each book I will leave you the link if you want buy one or more. Some time ago I wrote an article about my preferite investing books, and today I want to suggest you these other books.
Rich Dad Poor Dad (by Robert Kiyosaki)
In Rich Dad Poor Dad you can read the real story of Robert Kiyosaki, the author of the book, who has two fathers. The first was his biological father the poor dad – and the other was the father of his best friend – the rich dad. Throughout the book the author compares the two fathers, showing how different are their approaches to teach him how to achieve the success.
The author presents six major lessons, which he discusses in the book:
- The rich don’t work for money
- The importance of financial literacy
- Minding your own business
- Taxes and corporations
- The rich invent money
- The need to work to learn and not to work for money
I won’t say more about this book because I won’t ruin the amazing lecture that you could have.
The Automatic Millionaire (by David Bach)
The Automatic Millionaire is an easy and quick read with many helpful tips for personal finance success. The book is focused on how to retire in a rich way and the main lesson that you can find in the book is like a mantra: Pay yourself first.
What does it mean? I will try to explain you in few words.
I suppose that many of you use his income first of all to pay bills, taxes, mortgages and other stuffs. David Bach encourages people to save a part of his income first of all for themself (for the future) and invest this amount in a retirement account for instance. In this book you can find other suggestions to be more conscious about your savings and expenses, in fact at the end of the book you will find a blueprint with all the rules and tips to be an automatic millionaire.
The Science To Getting Rich (by Wallace D. Wattles)
This is one of the first self-help books (first publication in 1910) that explain how to achieve wealth in a scientific way. Wallace Wattles says that getting rich is an exact science and so everyone can get rich. The only thing that you need to do is to apply all the rules that you find in this book in a correct way.
The book is divided in 17 short chapters and in each one you can find the keys to have success and grow your wealth. The author gives also practical advices for real life to be more clearly in his theoretical abstracts.
Wallace Wattles promises that if you truly understand the science in the book, you will be able to improve your richness.
Secrets Of Millionaire Mind (by T. Harv Eker)
I’d like to introduce this book with a quote from it.
“If you want to change the fruits, you will first have to change the roots. If you want to change the visible, you must first change the invisible”
The book is composed by 17 “Wealth Files” and the author uses them to describe the habits and the mindsets of millionaires and compare the difference between how rich people think and how poor people think.
I will tell you some of these Wealth Files and if you are curious about them you can search the others on Internet or buy this book that is very interesting.
- Rich people believe “I create my life”. Poor people believe “Life happens to me”.
- Rich people focus on opportunities. Poor people focus on obstacles
- Rich people have their money work hard for them. Poor people work hard for their money.
- Rich people constantly learn and grow. Poor people think they already know.
Think And Grow Rich (by Napoleon Hill)
This book offers the tools to learn how to start thinking like a millionaire. Napoleon Hill is very convinced that thoughts can became reality if you can take control of them and if you are secure about your ideas.
For the author is important to understand also that the term richness is not only about money, but it means also happiness, health, good relationship. Richness begins with a state of mind. If we want to get rich, we must first change our mind and became – as Napoleon Hill says – money conscious.
AgeProof (by Jean Chatzky and Michael F. Roizen)
The authors explain the connection between health and wealth, giving readers all the strategies, know-how, tools to live longer, healthier and more lucrative lives.
Our body and our investment portfolio are based on the same concept: balance inflow versus outflow.
Why Didn’t They Teach Me This In School? (by Cary Siegel)
When Cary Siegel wrote this book in 2013 his first thought was to dedicate it to his five children that were becoming adults. He noticed that important things like money management weren’t taught in school, but also in Universities and MBAs programmes.
So he decided to write this book in a very easy and clearly way for any type of readers. The book includes 99 personal money management principles. These are not only theoretical rules to follow; rather they are practical principles learned by the author in his financial life.
Your Money Or Your Life (by Vicki Robin and Joe Dominguez)
This book is based on the results (50 years of combined experience) that two authors have achieved using all the principles that they have presented in “Your money or your life”.
The purpose of this book is to transform your relationship with money. It is full of examples and experiences of many people who decided to follow the nine-step programme for financial independence.
