Books are powerful. If you had to choose between reading this entire site or reading a single book that’s listed below, I’d tell you to opt for the book. Each is life changing, and will help you start thinking about money in an all new way. Plus, they’re written so well, they remind me of what Cicero wants said,
“He who has a garden and a library lacks for nothing.“
What I said about buying the books: I’m dead serious. If you learn the lessons explained in detail, they’d be worth thousands of dollars to you. Fortunately we live in the information age, where books and information are dirt cheap. You can’t afford not to read these financial planning books:
- The Clipper Ship Strategy: For Success in Your Career, Business, and Investments (An Uncle Eric Book)
The Clipper Ship Strategy is about economics, and how to profit from it. There’s always an overabundance something in one area of the world, and a great demand for it in another area. Transport it, and get rich. Of course, I’m oversimplifying the book here, yet I use the tips and tricks explained over and over again in business and finance. Once you are able to “grasp” the concept, it will change how you view recessions, depression and the economy forever.
- This is a classic. It’s one of the books that got me into financial planning in the first place. Not only is it filled with information about nearly everything you’ll need to know… it’s written in a hilarious style that will keep you flipping the pages. If you want to read a crash course on financial planning, then this is the book for you.
- The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich (Expanded and Updated)
- The Four-Hour Workweek is extremely controversial, and that’s why you should read it. When it comes to financial planning, you need to think outside the money box. Timothy Ferris challenges the traditional financial planning model, and reveals how you can live a life filled with travel, fun, and much less work. He accomplishes this through extreme levels of productivity hacks. In other words, he can guide you to getting everything on your to-do list done in a tenth of the time. I’m not even kidding. Out of time a lot? Read this book.
Like usual, I’ll be listing more and more books as time goes on. But if you haven’t read the above books, take my word and read them. That’s the best financial advice I can give you, hands down.
