3 Recommended Books Investing & Finance

Books, an amazing way to learn

Whether you are just getting your finances sorted out or just starting to invest for the first time. I want to share with you my 3 recommended books on Investing & Finance.

Reading books is a great way to increase your knowledge of different subject matters. Sharing the book after your done reading with a friend or family member can be a great idea as well.

In doing so, you can have a discussion or even debate on the contents of the book to see how you both feel about it.

Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything

Steven D. Levitt 

So, in no particular, I present my 1st of 3 recommend books.

While not based on investing per se it instead goes into the wider field of economics from a none economist perspective. For instance, it asks some, at first seemingly unrelated questions then goes into detail and breaks it all done in an easy to understand manner.

In addition, the book will explore many ideas and leave you with a greater understanding of how our world works and how patterns are created.

A New York Times bestseller for a reason, the book is eye-opening and jaw-dropping places. One you will likely read a few times.

The Little Book of Common Sense Investing:

The Only Way to Guarantee Your Fair Share of Stock Market Returns (Little Books. Big Profits)

John C. Bogle

Finally, 3 of 3 Recommended books.

Perhaps the most famous name in the investing world, John C. Bogle more commonly know as Jack Bogle. AKA the Founder and former CEO of Vanguard.

Vanguard is one of the main investments and importantly one of the cheapest platforms as discussed in the book.

Mr. Bogle, sadly no longer with us, proved time and time again that index funds and ETFs are the most sensible and profitable choice for investors.

For example, the book delves deep to show this. It explains how paying advisors (fund managers) high fee’s and how certain index funds with high expense ratios will eat into your profit by insane amounts once compounded over your lifetime.

The Little Book of Common Sense Investing – Teaches you the simple ways to build wealth for you and your family. Moreover, it teaches you to stick to low cost, well-diversified index funds and ETFs that track the S&P500 closely.

Time in the market beats timing the market. An utterly essential read for any investor old or new. Mr. Bogle shares his amazing breadth of knowledge and we must listen to him.

Any and all the above books will put you in good steed to really get to grips with investing and your money in general.

I’m lucky and get to read a lot and because of my job listen to Audiobooks a lot. I see it as passive learning!

New books are being recommended to me all the time and I shall make it my duty to let you know the best ones that fall into my lap. For now, I selected just 3 recommend books but fear not more will come.

  1. I love the Freakonomics books and listen to most of their podcasts too.

    I love this branch of economics – find it really interesting and fascinating and makes you look at the world with a different perspective.

    • I shall have to give the podcasts ago! I’m currently listening to Pat Flynn’s back catalogue. A lot of it is old information that is no longer valid, but there is still a lot of good stuff too. I’m sure as I catch up it will only get better.
      I’m lucky as my job involves about 4 hours driving most days! I almost exclusively listen to audiobooks and podcasts now, rather than the same 10 songs on repeat all day on the radio.
