#1 The Richest Man in Babylon
This was the first book I read on Investing and still love it to this day.
It was written in 1926 and still holds the secrets to wealth.
#2 The Simple Path to Wealth
Before I understood investing in the stock market I believed in fair tales of stock picking and genius traders.
I though I needed a financial guru.
What I needed and found was the truth, the Simple Truth in the Simple Path to Wealth.
#3 The Little Book of Common Sense Investing
After learning the Simple Path from Collins the truth becomes even clearer from the Industry Insider himself the late and great John C. Bogle.
Not Common but brilliant and filled with Wisdom.
#4 The One-Page Financial Plan
Once I understood the strategy I needed a plan.
Keeping with the idea of simplicity comes the One Page Financial Plan
I keep it simple and readily available to make sure I am on the right path.
Also One Major Point: You need advice(paid), not an advisor(money manager).
#5 The Boglehead’s Guide to Investing
The Boglehead Series continues with Bogle’s ideas. This book has no agenda other than educating the reader.
This book is also good for beginners but make sure to take plenty of notes.
This is for getting rich slowly investing only which I recommend!
Check out The Boglehead’s: Three Fund Portfolio too!
#6 The Four Pillars of Investing
After the basics are covered it is time to become a student of financial history.
Dr. Bernstein is a Neurologist by profession and is a self-taught leader of Modern Portfolio Theory.
Understanding the Four Pillars Theory, History, Psychology, and Business validates the lessons the prior books have illustrated.
