reccomend business books here!  Reply with quote  

Anyone who has accumulated knowledge of business, investing (stocks, real estate) through certain books, please post books you reccomend! Thanks

p.s anyone read any of the Rich Dad, Poor Dad series? I just finished Rich Dad Poor Dad and am now starting the second book of the series, The Cashflow Quadrant. Thought the first was a great book!

I've read the first Rich Dad book. Personally, I thought it got rather boring. Somewhere half way through the book, I realized, Hey, he's just repeating himself, over and over. And over. And over. That's not to say it doesn't have some good information, though... (Although you only have to read the first part to get it)

My wife loves that book. I'm more into magazines like the Econnomist and Busisness week. Last book purchace "The Happiest Babie on the Block"

Also have a friend who published a short story called "Echoes in the playground" Which is the only book I've bought more then one. I got one signed copy free and I've purchaced two for birthday gifts.

I think Busisness week has a list of books from time to time. Probably a repeat of the New Youk Times best selling list. Could probably be found online but I'm to lazy at this time. If you want to become a MLMer check out "Futcher[sp?] Choice"

I'll return to this thread if I find a list of books in any of the copies I still have around.

I love libraries as they keep the house from getting cluttered.

Have totally canceled my newspaper subscription. Still get promotional issues every here and there and I just save them till I get a chance to read. As a matter in fact I have sundays paper untouched out in the car but I read tuesday and wednesday at a restraunt.

hehe, Kiyosaki does repeat himself a good bit; I wonder if his writing is a little disorganised or if he does that intentionally to reinforce the concepts. In either case, you DO have a clear understanding that sticks! I recommend his CASHFLOW QUADRANT book; it is the smallest and least-repetitive.

Other must-haves:

THE TRUTH ABOUT MONEY - Ric Edelman (tells a little bit about everything and is a very entertaining read; he writes like he speaks)

HOW TO MAKE MONEY IN STOCKS - Bill O'Neil, founder of INVESTORS BUSINESS DAILY (IBD) newspaper www.investors.com

THE MILLIONAIRE NEXT DOOR - study of habits of first-generation millionaires in America. You will be surprised.

ONE UP ON WALL STREET - Peter Lynch (ran the famous Magellan Fund)

COMMON STOCKS, UNCOMMON PROFITS - the famous Fischer

SMALL TIME OPERATOR - how to set up a small business, like from your hobby (I have done this)

422 TAX DEDUCTIONS - from same author as SMALL TIME OPERATOR, get the two together

THE ERNST & YOUNG TAX GUIDE - for everyone who itemises, a little better than J.K. LASSER'S TAX GUIDE

THE INTELLIGENT INVESTOR - the famous Benjamin Graham (Warren Buffett's predecessor)

Any investor should look at all investment styles, from buy-and-hold to daytrading, to determine what works for the individual. Find your style!

Different Perspective  Reply with quote  

I think accumulating wealth is a good goal. However I feel priciples of Honesty and freedom are equally or of greater importance. So I would recomend people first understand the basic principles of Banking and political monetary practice. That is the foundation the Worlds economy is based on. The whole world wonders after the Beast.

Try reading THE CREATURE FROM JECKYLL ISLAND by G EDWARD GRIFFIN

or THIEVES in THE TEMPLE..by ANDRE EGGELETION (newer book and first black author to address the subject)

Also there is... Confessions of an economic Hitman.. (authors name will come to me shortly??)

MAYBE THE PEOPLE HAVE THE ANSWERS...PAT SHANNAN

some good books on money and economy can be found at www.realityzone.

Agreed. I think honesty and freedom are essential and conducive to accumulating wealth.

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding. To him belongs eternal praise.
Praise the LORD. Blessed is the man who fears the LORD, who finds great delight in his commands.
His children will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed.
Wealth and riches are in his house, and his righteousness endures forever.

-Psalms 111:10-112:3

"Expect me when you see me."

I have read a couple of the books listed and also found some new ones to add to my Amazon wish list, thanks.

I like Mary Hunts: Debt Proofing and Complete Cheapskates

I like the Motley Fool Personal Finance Workbook also.

4 Hour Work Week. Simple and powerful concept, but hard to implement.

I listened to the Rich Dad, Poor Dad audiobook on my way to work. It made my commute to work a lot more enjoyable. I liked where he talked about how a house is a liability and not an asset, and to increase your assets. I'm at my first job out of college so I was able to talk some of my friends out of putting all of their income into rent on a new condo.

I'll definitely look into his 2nd book, I didn't know there was one.
