13 Best Finance Books (to Create Smart Money Habits)

13 Best Finance Books (to Create Smart Money Habits)

Finances are a habit that most people should want to improve.

People with little or no spare cash might want to get better at making more money and spending less.

People who have money should want to learn the habits that will help them keep their money.

Fortunately, many of the habits are the same. Saving money, investing and living frugally are all habits that can be built and improved.

13 Best Finance Books (to Create Smart Money Habits)

The books on this list run the gamut of the finance field. I have shied away from including outright "finance" books for this list, and tried to stick with books that are more of developing the right attitude, habits and understanding of what it takes to improve your finances.

Books like Millionaire Next Door, will show you clearly that it is not only the fabulously wealthy who can be financially secure, while some of the books on this list, such as Penny Saving Household, give a more "hands on" and specific tools that can be used, on a day to day basis, to save some money.

Book Summary -Blinkest

A Smarter You in 15 Minutes?

If you enjoy reading nonfiction books, then I encourage you to check out the Blinkist app.

Blinkist is an interesting concept…

Blinkist summarized over 2,000 of the bestselling books and put them into condensed 7 to 15 minute reads (or “blinks”).  The idea here is to give you the key insights and important lessons -- without wasting your time on pointless information.

Blinkist book summaries are perfect for anyone who wants to maximize those random moments when you have to kill time. Like when you want to kill time before an appointment or you’re standing on a long line at Starbucks.

You can use Blinkist to complete a book daily, learn the valuable lessons, and avoid the fluff that often pad longer books.

And finally.....more book lists dealing with finance & money.

I am continuing to make useful lists of the best books from a number of finance and money categories. Since this list was originally published I have been adding new books in more narrow categories of finance. Property investment books, general investment books, personal finance books, books on saving money, books on getting out of debt, financial books for beginners, money management books and more... I put these lists together after months of research. Many books have not made the cut. If the book is on this page, or linked from this page, then that finance book is worth reading.
