I had a disastrous financial history. Most of the people know about it through my Quora answers. However, I always knew that I’m pretty bad at financial decisions. I started learning more about money from last year. I watched 100s of YouTube about personal financing. Then I bought my 1st book – Rich Dad Poor Dad and since then I decided to devote myself to listed personal finance books.
In fact with the help of the books, I cleared some of my Credit Card Debts as I had the right mindset after these books. I’m sharing my book-list with you so that it adds some values to your life.
I obviously haven’t read all of them as I started reading in July 2019. But I highly recommend you to start and gain financial literacy which is not taught in schools.
