19 Best Finance Books That The Richest People Read

19 Best Finance Books That The Richest People Read

If you want to become one of the richest people, should you just read what they read?

Maybe.

But there’s more. Besides getting the information the wealthy are getting, more importantly, you should also learn thinking about money and prosperity like they do.

You Need These 2 Types of Finance Books:

1. The financial information in black and white, tried and true. Follow it and you’re bound to succeed.

2. Your own inside ideas and beliefs about money may need to be shifted. Without doing this, no black and white money plans will ever work for the long term or even at all.  There are books that deal with both below.

Read both types of books and you may be well on your way to be a rich.

Many people are spending their way through high incomes—keeping up with the “JONESES” high profile lifestyle’s encumbered with high debt and zero savings. I worked for a millionaire one time who said “Money buys clothes, clothes don’t buy anything!” He advised us to buy our “toys” clothes, cars, vacations etc. off profits of profits and never spend principal!” That is the basic premise of this book – build profits, then enjoy them – but don’t spend principal.”
