Perhaps the greatest book ever written on investing in stocks, Benjamin Graham's 'The Intelligent Investor: The Definitive Book on Value Investing – A Book of Practical Counsel' so profoundly influenced a young Warren Buffett that Buffet sought Graham out for advice. Graham's teaching laid the foundation for the establishment of Warren's career as the world's best investor. Graham teaches us to go with facts over intuition and balance sheets over tips. Investing for value is the goal, and, over time, it can lead to spectacular profits. An updated edition is filled with footnotes explaining some of Graham's more technical points.

Rich Dad, Poor Dad, by Robert Kiyosaki
'Rich Dad, Poor Dad' is in the No. 9 spot on our list of the Top 100 Self-Help Books of All Time.
One of the most powerful finance books ever written, “Rich Dad Poor Dad,” doesn’t just change the way you deal with money, it changes the way you approach life. Kyosaki’s views are so unusual, they’re hard to handle at first. Money, he argues, isn’t something that you should be ashamed of, it’s something that we all think about all of the time. And it’s something that definitely makes your life easier to live with. He redefines the concept of wealth: it’s not the accumulation of goods, but wealth is how long you could get by with your current standard of living without having to get another job. For him, wealth isn’t about status, it’s about personal freedom, and the implications of that realization are profound.
