The Simple Path to Wealth by JL Collins

This product was recommended by Anna Barker from LogicalDollar

For anyone looking to build their wealth through investing, I can’t recommend this book highly enough. It sets out clearly and simply how anyone can apply a long term, low-fee investment strategy that has been proven over time to work. While there are some aspects that are US-specific (you’ll probably want to skip the parts on 401(k) accounts, for example), these are pretty minimal and don’t take away from the overall message at all.

The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham

This product was recommended by Amit Raj from The Links Guy

A stunning, classic with practical advice for any beginner. This book got me very excited about investing and I’ve made huge progress since then. The author uses simple language, nice examples, and is conservative in his recommendations. Overall, sensible and essential for those venturing into the world of investing.

The Little Book of Common Sense Investing by John C. Bogle

This product was recommended by Tim O’Brien from The Healthy Place

If you’re looking to learn about investing and you’re looking for a user-friendly book this is the right one for you. The author offers very useful information and tips for someone who is trying to learn about the stock market, a totally legendary book for people who want to understand index funding and investment.

How to Own the World by Andrew Craig

This product was recommended by Thomas Sorheim from LeisureHiking

Much as a house need a solid foundation to build upon, investing should be built upon solid financial understanding and literacy. How to Own the World by Andrew Craig is a well-written fun and actionable book on investing. It may not give you all the knowledge you need, but it certainly puts you in a great position to start off the right way.

Rich Dad’s Guide to Investing by Robert T. Kiyosaki

This product was recommended by Emmanuella Ndukwe-Obiukwu from Move with Ella

Rich dad’s Guide to Investing was the first book I ever read on investing, and this book dives deep into the lessons that rich dad taught about Investing. This book will educate you on the various types of income, and how to turn earned income into passive and portfolio income. I suggest this book because it doesn’t just dive solely into investing, it also looks at how you can create a business and shows you a pyramid of the structure of a business. So, this is all-in-one when it some to investing, income, and building a business. I recommend this book together with the first two books in the rich dad’s series, ‘Rich dad poor dad, and the Cashflow Quadrant. You’ll get the most benefit if you read the 3 books. It’s like watching a series, but this time, you are reading it.’

The Little Book of Common Sense Investing by John C. Bogle

This product was recommended by Olivia Tan from CocoFax

I am recommending this book because it focuses on index funds. It explains Bogle’s low-cost index fund investment strategy in clear details, including tips on how to make index fund investing work for you and your portfolio. This 10th-anniversary edition is updated with new information as it relates to the modern market. Still, it remains a must-read for all investing enthusiasts.

A Beginner’s Guide to the Stock Market by Matthew R. Kratter

This product was recommended by Harriet Chan from CocoFinder

If you have any idea about investing in the stock market, then this book will be a great guide to make the right investments. It is exclusively available for beginners who want to learn about every detail and term related to stock market investments. It talks about the tips and tricks associated with safe investments and assists you to analyze the market before investing your money.

Broke Millennial by Erin Lowry

This product was recommended by Jack Miller from How I Get Rid Of

The title itself is a giveaway, but it applies to everyone who’s at the beginning of their investment journey. This book (part of a series) tells you how to go about the process, but speaks to you using jargon that makes it very relatable.

How to Buy Stocks by Louis Engels

This product was recommended by Jack Miller from How I Get Rid Of

This clue of what this book is about can also be found in the title alone. For anyone who plans on getting into stocks, this classic title from 1994 should teach you how. All principles still apply today.

The Behavioral Investor by Daniel Crosby

This product was recommended by Jack Miller from How I Get Rid Of

This book is an eye-opener for budding investors. It draws the curtain on the reality that people get emotional with their investments, something that not everyone’s willing to admit. That puts things in a new perspective.

The Bogleheads’ Guide to Investing by Mel Lindauer

This product was recommended by Mika Hill from DesignyUp

The book explains the investing advice inspired by John Bogle a founder of Vanguard that has about $7 trillion in global assets under its management. Like the first book in the list it teaches you why it’s important to invest and how you can beat the majority of the hedge funds by going passive. Despite the fact that I became a diehard Boglehead after reading this book I would say that for a younger population that is not as remotely near retirement having a 60/40 (stock/bond) portfolio is a bit too conservative. So I would go with Collins’s advice with a 100% stock portfolio or going 80/20 to ease the future market drops.

A Random Walk Down Wall Street by Burton G. Malkiel

This product was recommended by Mika Hill from DesignyUp

I haven’t had to chance to read the new revisioned version where Burton talks about the cryptocurrency, but I’ve read the previous version. The most intriguing information from the book was the fact that the blindfolded monkey that picks stock by throwing the darts can be a successful investor. It’s another book favoring passive investing and gets into why fundamental and technical analyses don’t work. But it doesn’t end here it tells you how human psychology and how different human biases prevent investors from beating the market.

Stock Investing For Beginners by John Roberts

This product was recommended by Angus Chang from iupilon

Stock Investing for Beginners is about the former janitor and gas station who died a few years ago and surprised everyone with his $8 million worth. Everyone was wondered how he got this huge amount. The answer is simple he had invested in the stock market throughout the years. John Roberts explained that stock market investing is one of the best tools you can use to build a more secure financial future for you and your family. After reading this book you will know the simple steps to grow your money in the stock market.

One Up on Wall Street by Peter Lynch

This product was recommended by Ahmed Elnaggar from Set The Record Player

Put simply, Peter Lynch is one of the most successful investors of all time and the manager of Fidelity’s infamous Magellan fund. In this book, Lynch lays out in jargon- and fluff-free terminology how anyone regardless of their background and education can beat Wall Street analysts and investment funds. Lynch does a tremendous job in outlining the identifiers of a good stock from an overvalued one and offers clear guidance (including checklists!) on how to sift through the noise to find stocks that could return 1000% or what he famously calls tenbaggers.

Making the Most of Your Money by Jane Bryant Quinn

This product was recommended by Andrew Drow from Cloom

For anyone wanting to maximize wealth accumulation, this is a must-read. Quinn’s advice will save you from making some costly errors and keep you out of lost opportunities for creating more money with every decision made today! A very easy reading investment book.

Investing is a man’s world no more. This book, written explicitly for women, also contains insight that will help everyone wanting to learn about investing. It explains the basics in readable and understandable language and makes the world of investing feel reachable.Not only does Grow Your Money provide a solid foundation for investing, but it also delves into how to build on that foundation using examples of wise women from all walks of life.

A Random Walk down Wall Street by Burton Malkeil

It is written with the human psyche in mind when it comes to investing and decision-making.. He goes through every market from real estate to stocks to money markets and more. He gives a plan to create your own portfolio. It is a must-read for those who are looking to learn about investing.

Angel Investing by David S. Rose

This book gives a great overview of how to approach angel investing. It not only provides an extremely helpful framework of angel investing but also uses real-world examples so you can really dive deep. I highly recommend this one.
