Next up on the list are books about investing principles. I purposely put my investment book recommendations second because I think it is imperative to have a good grasp on your personal finances before thinking about investments. Investing without a plan is nearly impossible.
- The Intelligent Investor (Benjamin Graham) – A dive into how the markets work and general principles to follow as you get started investing. I recommend reading the updated version from 2009.
- The Behavior Gap (Carl Richards) – Why do we feel the way we feel and how does it affect our investment decisions? Better yet, how can we overcome them?
- The Essays of Warren Buffett, Lessons For Corporate America (Warren Buffett) – A look into how Warren Buffett goes about analyzing companies with a little humor along the way.
