Weirdly, it was through synchronicity that I found the article below. For my new book "Money Wisdom for Smart People — Dummies Don't Bother," I was looking to add to my list of recommended financial books. The first result on Google was:
The 10 Best Personal Finance Books of 2020: "Manage your money better with these reads" BY BEVERLY BIRD - Updated April 10, 2020
Here's how the 10 books played out for me:
- I didn't read the first one, find it interesting, so I ordered it.
- I own and have read the next 5.
- The 7th I wasn't that interested in.
- The 8th I don't have, I find it very interesting, and ordered it!
- The 9th — I saw that book somewhere before — Oh right, I have around 500 copies of it downstairs!
- The 10th — Not that interested in it so I didn't order it.
In short, even though I don't need any new books on how to handle money, I still ordered two new books on the subject.
Of course, people who are broke and handle money badly likely have not read any of these books — and will not order any of them!
(Oh well, as Mark Coker recently stated, "Darwin will sort out the delusional, pig-headed, and willfully ignorant.")
Just a note that I have finally published the new edition of THE LAZY PERSON'S GUIDE TO SUCCESS — FINANCIAL INDEPENDENCE AND PERSONAL FREEDOM TOO!
