Finance and Investment Books and Advice For Beginners
Beginners' Guide to Finance and Investment
It is easy to make yourself wealthier if you know what you are doing, but the skills required to avoid excessive debt and to grow your assets for a comfortable, even rich, existence are rarely taught well in schools. There are, however, many books on the subject that can take you through the basic principles of investment and finance all the way up to more complex trading and wealth creation techniques.
Here is a selection of good books on the subject, including some of the "For Dummies" and "Rich Dad Poor Dad" series and When Money Dies by Adam Fergusson recommended by the veteran investor, Warren Buffett and "The Naked Trader" by Robbie Burns, an excellent humorous book about stock trading and investment for beginners and experts.

Thinking Fast and Slow - By Daniel Kahneman - Nobel Laureate in Economics
Thinking Fast and Slow looks at the way our minds work in all aspects of our lives, but in particular when dealing with the way we think when taking financial decisions: How we analyse risk and reward. The book explains the two systems that control how we think and make choices: One system is fast, intuitive and emotional and the other slower and more logical.
This book could change the way in which you make financial decisions for the better.
Daniel Kahneman was awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics in 2002 and is the Eugene Higgins Professor of Psychology at Princeton University and Emeritus Professor of Public Affairs at Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.
