4. The Millionaire Next Door by Thomas J. Stanley/William Danko

By doing year-long research on America’s wealthiest people, Stanley and Danko compiled a work full of knowledge, experience and tactics used by millionaires.

5. Why Didn’t They Teach Me This In School by Cary Siegel
Personally, this is a book which resonates strongly with me. Which was at first intended as a financial education guide to her children, it quickly became a useful guide for everyone who wants to effectively manage their own money. With 99 easy to read money handling principles, the author lies out what it takes in order to succeed in a world where we are constantly being invited to spend more than we have – without any clear education on personal finance.
