We’ve only reviewed three out of the five so far here in our Rockstar Book Review series, but considering we’ve given each of them 4 1/2 or 5 stars each out of 5, we’re inclined to think he’s on the right track :) The other two books are in our queue to be shared in the future, too!
Here are the five books, along with ESI’s ranking and thoughts on them:
#5. How Much Money Do I Need to Retire? — The best book I’ve ever read on retirement. But if I have to rank them, it’s just not general enough to rank higher.
#4. The Bogleheads’ Guide to Investing — Same as above — not general enough. But investing is vital and comes before retirement, so this gets listed a notch higher.
#3. Your Money or Your Life — It’s a bit philosophical and less practical than the other two remaining. I prefer straight-to-the-point no-nonsense books. Many people like this book because it’s a bit more touchy feely. (You can read our Rockstar review of it here – we gave it 5 stars.)
#2. The Millionaire Next Door — This is my personal favorite and the book that made the most difference in my life. I think it can do the same for others too. But the other book edges it out for most people IMO. (Rockstar review here – we gave it 4 1/2 stars.)
#1. The Richest Man in Babylon — Short read, told as a story (easy read), very practical, and inexpensive. That’s what makes this book the top choice in my opinion. (Rockstar review here – we gave it 5 stars.)

Tell us one of YOUR favorite books, financially related or not (in fact, let’s go with NOT so we can expand our horizons more! ;)) and we’ll randomly select the winner a week from today.
I’ll go first: My favorite book lately is Essentialism by Greg McKeown which is all about focusing on the stuff that matters and getting rid of the stuff that doesn’t. Partly minimalism-focused, partly career/life self-help :) The link above goes right to our review of it here on the site.
*GIVEAWAY OVER* Congrats to msrob0t for winning! Whose favorite book is The Power of Now by Eckart Tolle because “It reminds me that there is only this very moment and to live it to the fullest. I would recommend it to everyone struggling with anxiety.”
