Rich Dad Poor Dad

This is the best book I have every read on how to become wealthy. It is a simple yet amazing read. In it, Kiyosaki demystifies how to become wealthy. He speaks about the different way the poor, middle class and rich treat their money.The Total Money Makeover,
by Dave Ramsey
This is a great book on how to get our of debt, stay out of debt and how to achieve financial health. The reason I recommend is that if you are not yet in ‘debt trouble’ this book will help you from making future mistakes. If you have debt, this will show pragmatic tactics and strategies to break free. Debt isn’t evil but in most cases it is stupid. Learn great habits early and enjoy great and earlier financial freedom.The Savage Truth on Money,
