Welcome to my Recommended Reading List!
I'll be making updates from time to time as I find books, podcasts and blogs that I think are worth your time.
BooksThe Algebra of Happiness by Scott Galloway
What does this book have to do with investing? Nothing. But the path to building your wealth starts with understanding your path to happiness. Knowing how to find contentment will help you define what is "enough". This petite volume carries great wisdom and takes all of a few days to read.
The Geometry of Wealth by Brian Portnoy
While Portnoy's Geometry of Wealth isn't an investing manual (it won't teach you the difference between a stock and bond) it will give you a framework for viewing money and wealth. That frameworks is far more valuable than a recitation about P/E ratios and earnings reports. Highly readable and highly digestible this is an excellent book for those looking to build their wealth in order to fund their contentment.
The Behavior Gap by Carl Richards
The subtitle of this book says it all: "Simple Ways to Stop Doing Dumb Things with Money". In fewer than 175 pages Richards' book will introduce you to the concept of Behavioral Finance and help you gain insights into why it's so easy to make poor decisions and sometimes so hard to make good ones.
A Wealth of Common Sense by Ben Carlson
Simplicity trumps complexity any day of the week. Investors are often seduced by complexity but that complexity comes at a price. This guide will demonstrate the value of a simple framework in making better investment decisions.
