Sixteen Books About Money

Written by Nickel - 4 Comments

The Vanguard Group recently published a list of books about money that would make great Christmas presents. There are nine books about investing, and seven books about financial planning.

Without further ado, here they are…

Books about investing

Books about financial planning

While these lists are a bit self-serving, in that they contain two Bogleheads books plus one by Jack Bogle (founder and former CEO of Vanguard) and another by Jack Brennan (Bogle’s successor), they’re actually quite good.

I haven’t read all of the books on here, but I’ve loved those that I’ve read (such as Four Pillars and the first Bogleheads book). Many of the others are on my personal “to read” list.

    Have read a few on the list also. My favorites are Bogleheads Guide to Investing and Random Walk.

    I did like Eric Tyson’s Personal Finance for Dummies. I just wished the name was different while I was reading it. Tyson is a really good writer.

    I am going to start reading them all, with “Winning the Losers Game” first.

    Very good list! I’ve read most of them. But if you only had time to read one book off that list, a “must-read” is “The Four Pillars of Investing.” It was written for liberal arts majors such as myself to demystify investing. Check out the pithy quotes i.e. “A broker services his clients like Bonnie and Clyde used to service banks” and pay attention to the sample portfolios at the end of the book. If all you did was emulate one of those sample low-cost, efficient portfolios and stuck to it for a few decades, you’d be in fine financial shape!
