Amazing Personal Finance Books You Have to Check Out in 2019

Everyone wants to know what to look out for when searching for a quality book on personal finance. As a beginner, you need a book on personal finance that teaches a coherent and clear message with a real-life meaning.

There are different core messages a personal finance material can pass across, ranging from passive income to eliminating all forms of financial clutter for wealth creation. Whatever the message may be, clarity remains key in giving the reader an optimal experience.

Also, it is essential that a personal finance book has a positive effect on your finance at the end of the day. This means a reader should be able to look forward to getting an upgrade of financial status upon the application of the principles gotten from the book. If you are not sure as to the likelihood of getting a positive result from reading that book, there’s really no point reading it at all.

It is, however, unfortunate that the clarity, message and the possibility of getting positive results from a personal finance book are getting slimmer. In a lot of cases, it isn’t about improving the financial experience of the reader and is more about making the writer a star.

However, there are exceptions to that rule. There are still some books on personal finance that can easily be applied to real-world scenarios and also bear a strong message. Also, these books take the reader on a path that helps them create wealth in a compelling and concise manner.

Below are some books that fulfill the above-listed expectations.

  1. Your Money or Your Life by Joe Dominguez and Vicki Robin.

This book comes in a nine-step model, specifically designed to assist the reader in taking a more holistic and deliberate approach towards money management. It also helps to instill financial values in a curious teenager for a very long time.

  1. Complete Guide to Money by Dave Ramsey

Ramsey is already a legend when it comes to personal finance. He is popular for a lot of his works including The Total Money Makeover which does a good job in analyzing the debt problem most consumers have. The book, Complete Guide To Money can be described as a very comprehensive step by step guide on the perspective household money management should be considered from. The book also talks about debt management.

However, it goes beyond that, to the extent that it examines the wealth while examining the real world money issues that Americans face such as charitable giving, insurance policy management, trading and investment all examined from a rational perspective.

Should you want a single book for money management, you should consider this book.

  1. Laura Vanderkam’s All the Money in the World

Vanderkam discusses a topic that is quite underrated in the personal finance field, and that is the fact that money is actually a commodity. Vanderkam links themes of money and time together for the production of a book that primarily aims to teach people how to use time and money as tools for the production of value.

She analyzes this theme of value all throughout the book, and manages to do so in a very engaging fashion. For example, Vanderkam is of the opinion that rather than spending $5,000 to get an engagement ring, 10% of the entire amount is spent on getting a shiny rock while you can use the remaining cash as investment, travel, handle debt or simply sending different lover gifts when things get difficult in the course of their married life.
