My Reading List Part 1: Financial

April 19, 2018

I have a love for finance that’s probably less than healthy, but if I had to boil my finance library down to the essentials this is what you would get.

Ultimately, the purpose of listing these here is so that someone else might discover something outside of their normal comfort zone.

I seek out book recommendations to read things that I wouldn’t normally read because I am constantly trying to combat the tunnel vision that I am prone to developing.

Among the books listed are 1 textbook, 1 treatise on money built from hundreds of interviews, 1 action plan, and 1 fictional book that imparts incredible wisdom.

Check these out if you meet any of the following criteria:

  • You struggle with money.
  • Maybe you have an interest in the stock market.
  • You have control over spending but don’t know what to do next.
  • You have no clue about money, taxes, or investing but want to learn.

**Disclaimer** If you purchase any of these through the links, Amazon will pay me a few cents at no extra cost to you. If you don’t want them to pay me then you can google the books but do not click the links or I will receive bread crumbs.

The Books

  1. Money: Master The Game by Tony Robbins To make this book, the famous motivational speaker and coach, Tony Robbins interviewed hundreds of the most successful people in finance to learn how money/investing/retirement plans/etc. work. The people he interviewed include the likes of Carl Icahn, Ray Dalio, and John Paulson. He divulged the knowledge with this book. All profits go to Feeding America.
  2. Unshakeable by Tony Robbins Building upon Money: Master the Game, Tony Robbins along with Peter Mallouk provides an action plan that is easy for anyone to follow. Tony teamed up with one of the best financial advisors in America, Peter Mallouk, to deliver this book. There’s also a podcast for this book.
  3. The Richest Man in Babylon by George Clason This is a classic book on personal finance. It’s a fairly short read with easily digestible lessons and teaches you a different way to see money through a historical fiction tale.
  4. The Kelly Criterion by Ed Thorp Ed Thorp breaks down a better version of the Nobel prize winning Black-Scholes formula and teaches you how to value options. If you don’t trade or don’t want to trade in the stock market don’t get this, but if you do have an interest then this book is worth its weight in gold.
