Hello readers

I am seeking to read some "how to" books rather than mindset/inspirational books. It can be anything from setting up a cleaning business to forming a law firm to eliminating debts to trading bikes to whatever. Does a book (or books) that actually made you financially comfortable after reading and implement to it?

    The book at the following link is full of good, basic personal finance information. So good, in fact, that several years back I bought all of my employees a copy.

    The books that made me the most financially comfortable were the ebooks I wrote and sold myself.

      ... marketing ebooks must be the most challenging part?

        Yep. I don't mind writing them at all. I only write what I know and what I'm really interested in. Marketing is something thought up in hell. I don't market at all really. If I did, I'd be much further ahead, but I just can't get my head around it at all. It's torture. I've gone as far as to stick one or two on a WSO. Sales page? Uh...right. I tell what the thing is about and any specifics people need to know if it's PLR and just let em figure out if they want it or not. No bells. No pomp. Can't stand that crap. At all.

        If there's a book that could ever convince me to LIKE marketing - that would be the one I'd be listing in this thread.

    Probably the Bible. I kept loose bills innit and whenever I feel lost I open to Leviticus and there it is, financial stability in times of crisis.

    "The Intelligent Investor" by Ben Graham.

    Warren Buffet swears by it as well.

    Arguing with an idiot is like playing chess with a pigeon.
    It'll just knock over all the pieces, poop on the board, and strut about like it's won anyway.

      That's far from the worst recommendation you're ever going to get, for a book on this kind of subject.

      Thanks for the suggestion! I heard Buffettology is good (written by Warren's daughter-in-law)...I just started reading a book called "Millionaire Traders" by Kathy Lien and Boris Schlossberg...it is similar to Market Wizards books.
