Three Personal Finance Books You Should Read

While they’re less exciting than graphic novels or a blockbuster movie, personal finance books can help you take control of your financial situation. There are hundreds of books designed to teach you when to spend and how to save.

Here are Credit.com’s top three reads:

I Will Teach You to be Rich

Setting the somewhat cheesy title aside for a moment, this book comes highly recommended by the millennial who heads up marketing for the personal finance app Empower (named by Time magazine as one of the best apps of 2017).

“As a skeptic of the tyranny of personal finance experts, I actually thought ‘I Will Teach You to be Rich’ was a very well-executed book, especially for millennials who would rather spend their time elsewhere than managing their money hands-on,” said Empower’s Phuong Vuong.

Wall Street Kitchen: The Recipe Behind a Housewife’s 1000 Percent Stock Return

Author Victor Chiu wrote his book to empower women to take control of their personal finances just as his own mother did.

Published in 2017, Wall Street Kitchen draws parallels between Chiu’s mother’s passion for cooking and her philosophy for investing. It is designed to be a self-help book focused on universal investing principles, which are offered up in layman’s terms for the beginning and intermediate level investing audience.

Retiring Can Be Easy, Staying Retired is Not

The title of this book really says it all. Many people end up working well into retirement because they’re not financially prepared for their golden years.

Written by Hagen Pruemm, founder and president of SIS Financial Group, an asset protection and retirement planning firm, the book provides readers with an in-depth look at today’s biggest retirement concerns and solutions.
