The Bible & 1984.
Paracelsus said:Rich Dad Poor Dad.
But not the way you think.
Because after a few years of generally failing at implementing its "wisdom", I looked around to see if there was some sort of scam at work. That's when I found John T. Reed. And that's what introduced me to the Right. And that's what started helping me wake up.
Unfortunately I have only read primarily mainstream books, so these two:
1.The Old Man and the Sea by Hemingway in high school
2.The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho in college (undergrad)
Back in 2010-2011, I became obsessed with the The Secret & The Power by Rhonda Byrne and thought the concepts of the book would make me rich ($$) by "visualizing" money, but it never truly came into fruition. I felt cheated by Rhonda Byrne lol.
Paul Coelho is into the same kind of neo-kabbalist spiritual babble as Rhonda, it's low-grade modern spiritual fare for the masses. Also the main reason he is so successful.
Good luck on getting a 12 year old to read a book on finance. That said, Bachelor Pad Economics by Aaron Clarey.Any advice on a book we can give to the younger kids? I have a nephew who is 12 years old and I was thinking to give him something in personal finance and savings, his parents aren't exactly the best when it comes to finances. I guess he is like most other kids these days, spends way to much time on their phone playing stupid games, so I would be really happy if I could make him read a book in this subject!
