Recommended Financial Reading

I want to recommend two books for you to read.

  • The Richest Man in Babylon first published in 1926.
  • The Millionaire Next Door published in 1996.

What do a couple of old books have in common? They both write about the basic principles to save and create wealth over your lifetime.

This is timeless advice discussing:

  • How and why to control your spending
  • Why keeping up with the Jones' isn't a smart idea
  • Benefits of education
  • Necessity of planning for your futureAnd of course...investing
