If you want to buy a book from the Book Depository, I’d greatly appreciate you using the affiliate link in the sidebar or below. You won’t be charged extra but I will receive a small commission from the sale of any book you purchase using the link below. The income helps me maintain this blog. If you purchase a shitload of books it might buy me a yacht (but I’d probably just invest it).
Here are some very helpful books on personal finance and investing. Some of the links may be affiliate links. Each and every one of them I recommend because I’ve read them and found them useful. There are tons of books not on the list that I read some of which are worth a look and others…well less so. If you’d like to see that list, click here.
