I'm no expert here, but these are four books that I have found useful in our financial support group.
Smart Women Finish Rich by David Bach
It is in this book that Bach explains the latté factor and what it means for your savings. I have three Bach books on my shelf and I find them quite similar (there's another lesson about making money in that fact alone!).
The Energy of Money by Maria Nemeth, Ph.D.
I haven't gotten as much out of this book as I can. We started reading it, but never got around to discussing the whole thing. The subtitle is "A Spiritual Guide to Financial and Personal Fulfillment," which–along with the main title–pretty much tells you about its approach.
Secrets of Six-Figure Women by Barbara Stanny
Real-life stories of women who have made six-figure incomes and how they did it.
Relax into Wealth by Alan Cohen
The subtitle says "How to get more by doing less." Rather than spotlight formulas and strategies, Cohen focuses on hearth, faith, and vision. Overcoming limiting beliefs is a big part of his message.
If reading books about wealth and money makes your stomach churn, stick with a good art read. We're finishing up the Twitter de Kooning book club, but you can still get in on some of the action.
3 thoughts on “Book recommendations for wealth and finance”
This is a great selection of books. I wanted to share a book idea just in case any of your members were interested in stock market investing. It’s called “Chicks Laying Nest Eggs” and I highly recommend it for people interested in getting involved with the stocks.
I wrote a short review with information on where you can find it since I don’t believe it is still in print on my new blog here: http://frugal-law-student.blogspot.com/2009/06/start-investment-club.html
I recommend “The Wealthy Barber” by David Chilton. It’s commonsense financial tips delivered as a series of talks between a group of young adults and “the wealthy barber.”
Kevin: Getting a spam site when I look this up. Makes me nervous, but I’m not quite ready to call your comment spam.
Michael: Thank you for your suggestion.
