I love personal finance. Ever since my senior year of high school when I was introduced to economics, I’ve loved the world of finance. I even went to college for finance and worked in the financial services field for over 15 years.
I love personal finance so much, I even read about it in my free time. Because I’ve read so many books on the topic, I decided to share with you my favorite personal finance books.
Below you will find the books I recommend as well as a short reason as to why I think the book is so powerful in helping you to improve your finances.

So without any more waiting, let’s get to my list of the absolute best personal finance books!
Absolute Best Personal Finance Books To Change Your Life
#1. Your Money or Your Life
Your Money Or Your Life by Vicki Robin, Joe Dominguez and Monique Tilford, walks you through how to get out of debt, re-order your priorities, resolve conflicts between your values and your lifestyle and how to save the planet while doing so.
This book is great and I still use many of the principles to this day.
I particularly enjoyed the part about aligning your lifestyle with your values. I wasn’t too keen on the environmental part, but its message didn’t override the other great advice in the book.
If you are going to start with any personal finance book, this one should be at the top of your list.
#2. Live It Up Without Outliving Your Money
Live It Up Without Outliving Your Money by Paul Merriman outlines how you should invest your money to receive the greatest amount of return with the least amount of risk.
This is a short, easy read.
