Welcome to the 12 Days of Personal Finance! This is day 10. In the spirit of the holiday season, and inspired by the 12 Days of Christmas, I’ve put together a series of 12 posts all dedicated to the topic of personal finance. The 12 day of personal finance features 12 personal finance books to read for you to further your financial education. This is the last day. Make sure to get on The Mastermind Within email list to get your free eBook!
On the 12th day of personal finance, my true love gave to me! 12 personal finance books, 11 side hustles, 10(0) personal finance bloggers, 9 ways to save money, 8 awesome finance videos, 7 steps to financial freedom, 6 spreadsheets and tools, 5 amazing podcasts, 4 financial metrics, 3 big expenses, 2 steps to financial success, and the #1 rule of personal finance! (and a partridge in a pear tree?)
It’s the last day of the 12 days of personal finance, and there’s really only 1 thing left to cover: personal finance books to read to further your financial education.
I love reading and furthering my understanding of the world. In the first 6 months of 2017, I read 29 books – and have read around 40 books this year in total. I’ve talked about personal finance podcasts, videos, and blogs to consume in 2018 to further your understanding, but there’s nothing like a good book. Today, I present to you 12 personal finance books to read for you to further your financial education.
12 Personal Finance Books to Read
There are many great personal finance books to read out there. I’ve picked 12 which I believe are superb, very informative, and helpful:
- The Simple Path to Wealth
- Think and Grow Rich
- The Millionaire Next Door
- The Richest Man in Babylon
- Rich Dad, Poor Dad
- Your Money or Your Life
- How to Think About Money
- The Bogleheads’ Guide to Investing

I’ve provided a brief summary of each of these below:
Personal Finance Books The Mastermind Within Community Members Are Reading
One of the great things about having readers is being able to ask them about their strategies for financial success. A number of people contributed to the question of which personal finance books they are reading to further their financial education.
Grant, a blogger and friend of mine from Life Prep Couple likes The Millionaire Next Door!
My favorite personal finance book is a little outdated but The Millionaire Next Door was very eye opening, I also liked The Science of Getting Rich.
Dom, a blogger from Gen Y Finance Guy, loves The Slight Edge:
The Slight Edge. It really covers personal finance and overall personal development all in one.
I completely agree with you Dom! The Slight Edge had the biggest impact on me of any book I read this year. Thank you for contributing!
