June, 2014


Inspired by a list from my sister's CPA - Thanks, Sis! - this time I am highlighting useful and well recommended money management or economics books. Dozens were considered. Each of the following is suggested by more than one financial professional and has a greater than 4 (out of 5) rating per Amazon Books:

Many of the titles should be in the local library. Others are available online for a few bucks. It is just possible that in one or more of them readers might find tips by which to markedly improve long-term financial circumstances, find greater budgetary harmony with significant others, and achieve emotional wealth: risk-adjusted financial security and hence greater peace of mind.
