Personal finance books is one of the reason why I discovered and ignite my passion in personal finance. I became addicted and found my self starving for knowledge to learn more about proper personal finance.
I’m not an expert, in fact I still consider myself as a beginner. But I’m telling you that there was a huge difference from what I knew before and what I know right now.
The way I handle, spend, and think about money was great way now than before. That’s one of the benefits I gained after reading several personal finance books that I will be sharing right now.
Here’s the list of my top 7 personal finance books I’ve read so far.
