10 Phenomenal Books for the Money Conscious

I found the below personal-finance books and business books to be immensely helpful.

My last blog post, 100 Examples of the 80/20 Rule, set off a chain reaction of personal-finance and business books.

Some of them include:

  1. You Need More Money, by Matt Manero (an excellent reality check)
  2. Your Money or Your Life, by Vicki Robin (a thought-provoking analysis of what money actually means to us)
  3. I Will Teach you to be Rich, by Ramit Sethi (a "how-to" book with practical saving and investing advice)
  4. The Millionaire Fastlane, by MJ Demarco (a compelling plea to bypass the "slowlane" and get into the "fastlane" by building controllable business assets)
  5. The Total Money Makeover, by Dave Ramsey (the "snowball" method to paying off debt and living with financial peace)

Those books led to the following business and productivity best sellers:  

  1. The 4-Hour Workweek, by Tim Ferris (the ultimate guide on lifestyle design)
  2. The Personal MBA, by Josh Kaufman (excellent summaries of business principles)
  3. A Mind for Numbers, by Barbara Oakley (tools, tips, and tricks to get that mental edge)
  4. Linchpin, by Seth Godin (treat your work as art and "ship it")
  5. Clockwork: Design your Business to Run Itself, by Michael Michalowics (an analysis of business systems)
  6. A Whole New Mind, by Daniel Pink (a groundbreaking set of ideas guiding us from the informational era into the conceptual era)

As an advocate for debtors over the last 15 years, I can say that money mismanagement stems from a lack of good habits. These books will help you gain better ones. 

I wish each of you a healthy and prosperous life.
