Apparently, books are one of the best sources of information. I know a good old book beats watching TV all day. So, if you use books as a source of entertainment and knowledge, then here’s a good collection that’ll help you manage your finances.
A personal finance book will encourage you to budget, deal with most of your money related problems with confidence and get out of debts. However, if you have no idea where you start when shopping for a personal finance book, then it’s easy to get deterred.
It doesn’t matter how much money you make, personal finance books are the key to richness. But you don’t need a lot of books so that you can actually get smarter about your money. In fact, reading too many finance books might be unhealthy for your financial status.
You just need to have the right foot in the right direction. It actually doesn’t matter if you take a break from your financial vision, as long as you keep pressing on. Additionally, it doesn’t matter how long it takes you to achieve your vision, as long as you have a vision.
With that in mind, I took time gathering the right books with the right information for you. The list below comprises of handpicked personal finance books that I personally found to be helpful.
1) Freelance to Freedom by Vincent Pugliese
This is one of those books you will read and instantly feel motivated. The Freelance to Freedom is a book that will not change your perception about money, but you also learn how to manage your finances.
Like we were made to believe growing up that money is the root of evil, Vincent manages to convince his audience otherwise. More to that, with the current changes in the economy, Vincent stresses the fact that there’s never been a better time to start your own side business. Learn that and more through reading the pages in this book.

But whether or not Bitcoin will be the future is something we are still waiting to see. That is because the future of cryptocurrency isn’t as clear as most people tend to think. Wait a minute? Do you know anything about Bitcoin since I’m actually assuming you do?
