Books Are Your Absolute Best Value In Financial Education (besides my free blog and podcast, of course)
Books give you access to expert advice organized in a succinct format, consumed from the convenience of your home, on your own schedule, and all for just a few dollars.
You can’t beat it.
Employ your time in improving yourself by other men’s writings, so that you shall gain easily what others have labored hard for.-Socrates
If making money is your goal, then making a study of money should be your habit.
Here are my recommended reading lists of the best books organized by topic…
- Wealth Creation Books – Habitudes of The Wealthy
- Beginner Investing Books – Foundation & Asset Allocation
- Advanced Investing Books – Quantitative Investment Strategy
- Market History and Bubbles
I have said that in my whole life, I’ve known no wise person over a broad subject matter area who didn’t read all the time – none, zero. Now I know all kinds of shrewd people who by staying within a narrow area can do very well without reading. But investment is a broad area. So if you think you’re going to be good at it and not read all the time, you have a different idea than I do… You’d be amazed at how much Warren [Buffett] reads. You’d be amazed at how much I read.”-Charlie Munger in Poor Charlie’s Almanac
If it’s good enough for Charlie then who am I to argue. I hope you enjoy the reading!
