Best Personal Finance Books

There’s literally millions of books on personal finance and money management. How do you know which ones are the best personal finance books? Thankfully, LOTS of people have been there before you and have given us many informative reviews on the books available.

If you’re in the market for an excellent financial book, you COULD find someone who seems to have their money act together and ask them what book they used…OR you can check out the ones listed in this post.

I did a bit of research, and compiled this list of both books I’ve read and enjoyed as well as ones that were rated highest by reviewers on Amazon. These books are great for getting yourself educated and motivated about the world of frugal living and budget-creating.

This is the best list I've seen! I have heard of many of these books but thankfully haven't had to read them, thanks to my husband and father who are financial wizards! Give me a children's book and I'm happy. I do have friends who live by the Dave Ramsey method and love it.

It's nice to read books for information and inspiration. That is especially true when it comes to money management.

I have 2 of the Suze Orman books and her advice is awesome. I always find her so relatable.
