For the past few years every January I go back through all my personal finance books to try and pinpoint what I did well in the previous year and what I need to change going forward.
This year is no different and as I was reviewing my favorite books, I thought it might be good to share with others the ones that I enjoy that will help you get your finances and retirement in order.
- The Millionaire Next Door: The Surprising Secrets of America’s Wealthy by Thomas J. Stanley & William D. Danko
- The Simple Path to Wealth by J L Collins
- The Bogleheads’ Guide to Retirement Planning by Taylor Larimore, Mel Lindauer, Richard A. Ferri, Laura F. Dogu
- The White Coat Investor by James M. Dahle, MD. This one is written for Doctors, but much of the advice can be applied to software developers.
These are just a few of the books I have related to personal finance but they are considered classics for a reason. Also, all the links are affiliate links to Amazon but I’m sure your local library or Libby will have them for free.
I love the simplicity in the millionaire next door and the simple path to wealth, but one thing all personal finance books preach is that it’s not what you make, it’s what you save that makes you rich. Do you have a favorite personal finance book or one that changed your life? Let me know in the comments as I’d love to read it.
