I believe some of the most incredible things we can learn are from books. I hope you get a ton of value from this blog, but I know I can’t teach you everything. The books below are books that I have read and personally learned a lot from.
Some are old, some are new. Some you may have read, some you may not. They’re in alphabetical order because I can’t imagine trying to order them in any reasonable way otherwise. I recommend them all.
This book is an excellent dive into the world of minimalism. We live in a capitalist society that insists what will make us happy is stuff. Goodbye, things argues the opposite, and I found the argument compelling.
In the realm of personal success, influence is highly important. but there’s a difference between taking advantage and working together. This book explores how to effectively navigate influence.
One of the first books I ever read on money, I Will Teach You to Be Rich outlines everything practical you need to know to grow wealth. Ramit Sethi has spent well over a decade educating on personal finance, and this book is the real deal.
Robert T. Kiyosaki
Rich Dad Poor Dad is a classic money mindset book. There are ways that rich families act around money that are fundamentally different than poor families. Our actions and mentalities determine our lives. This is a great read if you feel limited with your money mindset.
I have to imagine that most of you have heard of this book, and a large majority of you have read it. If you haven’t Tim Ferriss rocked the world when this book came out. It’s all about systems, efficiency, and living your best life on your own terms. Highly recommended.
John David Mann & Bob Burb
An incredible book that offers a look at how giving is actually the greatest asset towards building success. Everyone should read this book at least once, but probably once a year would be more appropriate.
Thomas J. Stanley
The average person thinks of millionaires as these incredibly opulent, sports car driving, mansion living other class of people. The reality is that you are surrounded by millionaires every day. They’re everywhere, and Thomas Stanley helps reveal them, and how they did it.
George S. Clason
Published almost 100 years ago, this is a parable of how one man grew incredible sums of wealth in ancient Babylon. The advice in here is universal, and just as applicable today as it was when the book was published. This is an incredible read.
Probably one of the most read books ever written on personal finance, Dave Ramsey is a titan in the industry. His program has helped millions of people climb out of debt, myself included.
The original money mindset book. It’s literally in the title. Napoleon Hill is a legend in the financial space, and for good reason. This book is almost 100 years old, and it still sells in incredible numbers. If you’ve never read this book, buy a copy right now.
