The Total Money Makeover – Dave Ramsey
* Read this book. It’s profound in its simplicity. No tricks or gimmicks – this book should be required reading as early as high school. Again, Dave doesn’t say anything that you probably haven’t heard before … but as he says, “Some times common sense isn’t all that common”.
The Richest Man in Babylon – George Samuel Clason
* Again, not a profound book or a get rich quick manual but a common sense approach to personal finance as told through some interesting story telling and parables. I found it to be a motivating book and again, very practical – spend less than you make, pay off your debts, and save.
