Books – Money, Investing & Personal Growth

Books You Must Read

Do you know one thing most successful people have in common? No, not their money, they read books. They read a lot of books. As nice as it is to binge-watch Netflix from time to time – do not make it a habit.

Mr Warren Buffett is quoted as saying when asked about success.

“Read 500 pages like this every day. That’s how knowledge works. It builds up, like compound interest. All of you can do it, but I guarantee not many of you will do it.”

If that’s not enough to get you reading I do not know what is.

Getting into the habit of reading will do you the world of good. Even if it is just one book a month to get you going.

Building knowledge over time, the same as a portfolio is one of the best investments you can make in yourself. Any of the books above would be a great first step into the wonderful world of reading.
