Ten Cool New Books On Personal Finance

The summer reading season is in full swing and books on personal finance and business are hitting the shelves.

It’s easy to think that if you read one book on personal finance, you’ve read them all. But there’s another reason (at least for me) to keep your nose in a book, especially in turbulent economic times: inspiration.

You may know all the lessons… but might get a little lax about implementing them in your own life.  So, it’s not a bad idea to pick up a book on a personal finance topic–entrepreneurship, saving money in tough times, stock trading, etc.–to keep motivated to make those changes in life.

If you’re like me and have gone through your share of books, here’s a list of ten NEW books on personal finance, business, and investing. (And, feel free to add your own favorites in the comments section.)

How To Get Rich by Felix Dennis
An amazing entrepreneur (publisher of Maxim Magazine) tells you how he managed to get rich. Don’t expect secrets. Dennis says there’s nothing secret about getting rich.

Here’s Felix Dennis’ website.

The Virtue of Wealth by Paul Sutherland
The Virtue of Wealth looks at “zenvesting.”

My Money Matters: 30-Day Plan to Build Peace of Mind and Wealth by Galia Ginchon
A corrspondent for MSN and Real Simple magazine, Galia puts together a volume of her best tips and tricks with My Money Matters.

She Inc. by Kelley Keehn
Kehn has aimed this book at women who need to take proactive steps to secure their financial futures in an uncertain world.

Here’s Kelley’s website.

The Little Book of Main Street Money by Jonathan Clements
I like these “Little Book” guides. I have a few of their investing volumes and look forward to reading this new one by Clements.

Financial Self-Defense by Arnold Goldstein
This is billed as a book that will help you protect everything you own from everyone, everytime.

Trading for Dummies
A good “Dummies” volume for folks looking to start their trading careers.

Shop Class as Soulcraft by Matthew B. Crawford
The author looks into the value of work with this book, just published in May.

Solve Your Money Troubles: Debt, Credit and Bankruptcy
The publisher of this book, Nolo, always has spot-on books about finance, inventing, and legal matters. Here’s another that deals specifically with money problems.

How The Mighty Fall by Jim Collins
Maybe this belongs in the business section, but I’ve included it here for investors, many of whom enjoyed Collins’ classic “Good To Great” as a book that helps them pick winning investments.

    Thanks for the book suggestion. People need to embrace the four-fold path: investing, spending, saving, and earning.

    You have some very interesting books listed here. I especially like “Trading for Dummies” This is a fantastic book for people new to the financial markets. Savvy financial market traders can make money in both up and down markets by making informed trading decisions regardless of the market’s condition. I respect your work to make these resources available to the general public. Thank you for posting.
