Welcome back! Day #2 of our week of book giveaways, and up for grabs this time around is a bunch of great *investing* and financial planning books.
But first, let’s announce the winner of yesterday’s personal finance Classics!
The lucky winner is… Mark R.! BOOM! Congrats! Although really everyone won by seeing so many great $$$ tips yesterday, eh? 😉 Don’t forget to pass these books forward when you’re done with them, Mark, and keep the faux Money Library going! The only library that never gets its books back – hah!
Now to today’s docket:
The Investing Books Bundle!
A mix of classics for ya, along with some newer books that have since hit the shelves… One even with an autograph included 😉 Here’s what we’ve got:
The Little Book of Common Sense Investing by John C. Bogle — “The classic guide to getting smart about the market. Legendary mutual fund pioneer John C. Bogle reveals his key to getting more out of investing: low-cost index funds. Bogle describes the simplest and most effective investment strategy for building wealth over the long term: buy and hold, at very low cost, a mutual fund that tracks a broad stock market Index such as the S&P 500.”
The Index Card by Helaine Olen and Harold Pollack — “When University of Chicago professor Harold Pollack interviewed Helaine Olen, an award-winning financial journalist and the author of the bestselling Pound Foolish, he made an offhand suggestion: everything you need to know about managing your money could fit on an index card. To prove his point, he grabbed a 4″ x 6″ card, scribbled down a list of rules, and posted a picture of the card online. The post went viral. Now, Pollack teams up with Olen to explain why the ten simple rules of the index card outperform more complicated financial strategies.”
The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham — “The greatest investment advisor of the twentieth century, Benjamin Graham taught and inspired people worldwide. Graham’s philosophy of “value investing”—which shields investors from substantial error and teaches them to develop long-term strategies—has made The Intelligent Investor the stock market bible ever since its original publication in 1949.”
The One-Page Financial Plan by Carl Richards — “The fact is, in a single page you can prioritize what you really want in life and figure out how to get there. That’s because a great financial plan has nothing to do with what the markets are doing, what your real estate agent is pitching, or the hot stock your brother-in-law told you about. It has everything to do with what’s most important to you….This book will help you bridge the gap between where you are now and where you want to go.”
