Money: A user’s Guide
If you’ve been searching for a book to teach you all the fundamentals of money management that school neglected, then look no further. Concepts which at face value may seem complex and intimidating are presented in a way that’s easy to understand and dare I say it, entertaining. If the words inflation, investment and budgeting make you want to sprint off, this is probably a good book for you 😉
Rich Dad, Poor Dad
Rich dad poor dad is an absolute classic, and it’s been sitting at home for years. Well, I recently decided to give it a read. My thoughts: the ideas make you re-evaluate everything you’ve been taught about hard work. It gives a perspective on life, work and the way a lot of our lives revolve around the whole system that almost makes you feel…conned. Suddenly you may perceive yourself as a hamster on wheel with no way off. Whether or not you agree with Robert T. Kiyosaki, you have to admit that he has a valid point. Highly recommend to anyone, especially people in their late teens/early twenties. I saw a lady reading this recently and asked her what her thoughts were. Her response was “it’s the best book I’ve ever read in my life”. SO, there you go.
