Your Money or Your Life
By Vicki Robin
Perhaps you have heard of the minimalist movement that is spreading through the millennial generation. There is nothing new under the sun. This book is an update of an earlier version that inspired many people to evaluate their jobs, possessions and income requirements in order to live financially independent at an early age. Are you doing what you truly love? Are the things you buy worth the time you worked to earn them? How can you manage your life so that you can be independent and do what you truly love to do? This is a valuable book to learn about money and how to manage it wisely.
The Simple Path to Wealth
By JL Collins
Do you ever wish you could go back in time and teach your younger self what you learned in later years? How I wish I had read this book when I was young! A father writes letters to his daughter outlining simple financial advice for life. I especially love his plan for investing. This is a plan that does not take hours of researching stocks and funds. It is truly a simple, genius plan that will lead you to financial independence. Unfortunately, there is some language in it. I highly recommend it.

This book has been around a long time! It has a huge number of fans and has many editions. There is an edition for teens and children! There are Kindle editions, workbooks, and audio versions. Why so popular? Steven Covey has analyzed the reasons as to why some people are effective in life and business. The principles seem simple, but are really life changing if you put them into daily use. Many you will find in the Bible. A practical book for forming habits that will change your life. I highly recommend this book.

Thou Shall Prosper: Ten Commandments for Making Money
By Rabbi Daniel Lapin
Why are Jewish people so successful? Could it be lessons they have learned from the Old Testament? God cares about our welfare and has much to say about how we do business. He is interested in how we handle our money, how generous we are and how we treat other people. It is really quite amazing to study the depths of what the Bible has to say about how we do business.
Rabbi Lapin has obviously given this much thought and has written a wonderful book full of stories and lessons to teach us what the Old Testament says about prosperity. He has arranged his principles into lessons that are easy to grasp and put into use. His latest edition has newer Internet-related examples of business opportunities.
I quote from this book numerable times in my business course. If you want to learn more about what the Bible teaches about business or you are looking to read a book for more credit, I highly recommend this book.
