Financial books -
Yes, after seventeen years of formal education, I am through with being taught. Now I only want to learn. There are a few people whom I regard as my teachers - no, not the ones that teach, but those ones that make you want to learn more.
Probably the first person that opened my eyes to a different world, were Robert Kiyosaki. He wrote several books - including New York Times bestseller Rich Dad, Poor Dad - on the mindsets of the rich and how one can change one's own mind about being rich.
Another famous teacher of financial education and literacy is Suze Orman. Though some of her techniques (saving, get-out-of-debt) are purely for achieving financial freedom and not riches, I still admire what she has achieved. I may not apply all of her advice, but she provides incredible encouragement to everyone to get on top of his or her finances.
Probably one of the most authoritative authors on riches is Napoleon Hill who made a study of more than 500 millionaires of his time (a million were worth more then than it is today). His emphasis is not necessarily on financial freedom, but financial riches.
Now that I've finished school, these are the people to whose financial books I turn. They are just some of the people who are helping me to further my financial education. If you want to, you too can learn something. (They don't teach. YOU learn).
Below I've listed the financial books I've read with links to my reviews of them. Read what I learned and be inspired to learning something as well.
