Learning about the world of Personal Finance – Reading Lists

Ever since I was young the easiest way for me to get to know a topic was to read about it. When I was still in school this would mean I started in the library looking at the encyclopedia and from there I would branch out until I had an idea about the topic. Now when reading about a topic such a personal finance there is so much information and so many nuances that it’s really hard to get started. There is literally such a plethora of books out there including many that aren’t worth the paper they’re printed on. This lead me to take a slightly different approach: I started reading blogs first, bloggers would from time to time mention some of the ‘classics’ or new books that have come up that are worth reading. From this I started to pull together a list! Books like Rich Dad, Poor Dad and the Automatic Millionaire were on there.

Now what I’m looking for is more books, quality books. Which personal finance books have you read in the past that have inspired you?

Here is my list of personal finance books that have inspired me:

  • Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki
  • Think and Grow Rich – Napoleon Hill
  • The Automatic Millionaire – David Bach
  • Secrets of the Millionaire Mind – T. Harv Eker
  • The Millionaire Next Door – Stanley and Danko

  1. Mine have taken on a more feminine nature but good nonetheless.
    All Your Worth and Money a Memoir- Women, Emotions and Cash are excellent reads.
    I have read The Millionaire Next Door and I have Rich Dad, Poor Dad to be read in the next few months.
    You’re right though, there is alot of information but it wasnt until I started my blog also that I was pointed to the really GOOD PF books.
    All Hail to PF bloggers!:)
