I’m looking for a new personal finance book to read. I’ve read a bunch, but not in a while. I usually prefer books with some version of “rich’ or “millionaire” in the title for some reason (sad, I know).
Below are a few of the books I’ve read and enjoyed. My next book I’ll do a little SAFTM review. I read these (and many others) before SAFTM was around, but maybe I’ll revisit them. Next to the names are what I though of each in three words or less:
- The Millionaire Next Door (great motivation read);
- The Millionaire Mind (also great read);
- Millionaire by Thirty: The Quickest Path to Early Financial Independence (not impressed);
- The Automatic Millionaire: A Powerful One-Step Plan to Live and Finish Rich (good stories; basic);
- Start Late, Finish Rich (just okay);
- Rich Dad Poor Dad (good read);
- The Money Book for the Young, Fabulous & Broke (broad, basic advice); and
- Jim Cramer’s Real Money: Sane Investing in an Insane World (great investment advice).
Anyone read the ones I mention above? What did you think?
I’m thinking about the new Thomas Stanley Book: Stop Acting Rich and Start Living Like a Real Millionaire. Has anyone read it? What do you think? Any others you recommend?
I’m going to choose a book in the next few days and will announce it here with my reasons. I’ll probably borrow it from the library, so whether it is in stock will be relevant. I don’t want to wait!
So until next time, put your credit card down and slowly step away from the mall!
