Personally, I took alot of good information from the Rich Dad Poor Dad series by Robert Kiyosaki. I then read books by his advisors and searched for referenced books. All leading me to more great books for financial education. <p>What books do you all like to read to learn more about finance and business.

I read the first five books they he published. Then just read books of interest from the rest of the publications. <p>Not sure if you knew, he just published a book with Donald Trump. Haven't read it yet, but it is on the list.

I have read a little from a book titled "Nothing Down for the 2000's" It's about real estate investing, which is something I intend on doing a lot of before I die <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/set1/smile/emsmilep.gif" BORDER="0">

I always hear good things about Rich Dad Poor Dad. I should really try and make time to go to the bookstore to check it out.

It is worth your while to at least read one book, or get the abridged cd version.

A Random Walk Down Wall Street - Malkiel. Pretty good for someone that wants to invest but doesn't know how. Talks about setting up life cycle plans, index funds, etc. And many anecdotes about people being stupid and losing their money.

Oh yea I forgot, speaking of Magazines. I subscribe to Money, i got 2 years for 20 bucks!<p>It's really good, because it's stuff a normal person would be interested in. Retirement plans, real estate, 529 college plans, recommended stocks and mutual funds, and cool little product comparos for getting the most out of your money.

You can choose to live your life in a rat race, or you can get out of it and do whatever you want to do. Helps you see opportunity in places you would not normally think. Also, you are getting the education from the people who have already made these things happen.
