What is the best book you have read on personal finance and why?
So, I have been considering the books I have read on personal finance and financial independence. I have a few favorites but I'm always up for learning new things. Any suggestions?
Patchofearth-- The best I've read (or listened to) is Dave Ramsey. His kit comes with a book (which I skimmed) and audiotapes that I listen to now and then since the initial listening in order to refresh myself. They got me fired up about paying off my mortgage, which helps with financial independence in a big way! As far as becoming financially independent, I'm not sure about that specifically and will be curious to see what others say. Does "financial independence" as you're referring to it mean being able to not work for a living? I'd love to be there but don't really know how. But as far as managing money better and knowing what to focus on and how to get out of and never get into debt for anything again, Ramsey's advice helps a lot.
Hello.....My girlfriend Vee just read my mind. Dace Ramsey is DY-NO-MITE on finances. I have purchased his book(s) for each of my sons & their wives. He makes perfect sense and speaks so people can fully understand! Dave Ramsey is awesome. Paula
Effer! You're awesome! I bought the kits as gifts for all of my brothers! Some listened and applied the principles more than others. I was already frugal, so I think I listened more than they did. Did your sons and wives apply the principles?

Why don't we teach more personal finance in high schools while American citizens continue to...rack up debt? This just seems like common sense to me. What do you think the problem is that we are sending kids out unprepared for real financial responsibility?

Do they teach enough personal finance skills in school?It seems like despite a world that revolves around money (and how well you can manage it) there is no change in the amount of personal finance education given in schools. Topics like interest, managing your day to day finishes, budgets,...
