It depends..

If you're a young man that wants an introduction to personal finance, read: I Will Teach You to be Rich by Ramit Sethi.

I highly recommend Meditations by Marcus Aurelius. The Republic by Plato. Metaphysics and/or Politics by Aristotle. You know, the classics.



The Communist Manifesto by Friedrich Engels & Karl Marx. Post Capitalism a Guide to our Future by Paul Mason if you're into economic theory.

I'm personally into spiritual pursuits. I'm currently learning Hebrew. I'm halfway through the Hebrew alphabet. I've learned a powerful Kabbalist hymn/prayer and I can quote some passages from the Bible in Hebrew. I want to get to where I can read The Holy Bible and some other Hebraic texts such as The Sefer Yetzirah and The Zohar.

If you're into esoterocism and schools of the occult, I recommend The Secret Teachings of All Ages by Manly P Hall. He has a lot of other interesting books like that as well, though it's extensive.
Behold a Pale Horse by William Cooper. Though, I believe that a lot of what he says is bullsh*t. I believe he's a charlatan. Check out the episode about him on the podcast "Behind the Bastards". Still an interesting read, nonetheless.

I also study Hermeticism. I have The Hermeticism Collection: The Kybalion, Corpus Hermeticum: The Divine Pymander of Hermes, and the Life and Teachings of Thoth by Hermes Trismesgestus. Seven Spheres by Rufus Opus. I enjoy reading the knowledge from historic texts.

Good looks. I'm definitely going to check them out.

I've found that guided meditations were super helpful for me to get started. (and get back into it if I stop doing it for a while)

David Ji on Soundcloud has a lot of free guided meditations that are pretty legit.

I'm not the biggest Oprah fan, but Deepak Chopra and Oprah often times have free series of guided meditations too on their app. You can just search oprah and deepak in the app store and you'll see it.

Rich Dad Poor Dad





this is a must-read for anyone with no talent, skills or work ethic

there is nothing in this book that has been scientifically validated

it's all fairy tales from a guy who got rich from talking about being rich

he invented nothing, he started nothing, he created nothing

if you see someone with this book on their shelf

they only care about money and will not hesitate to exploit you and your loved ones

As someone who has this on their shelf I have to ask where you come up with this from and find the need to spread this as your interpretation of the book?

Cliffnote version of the book is to obtain a*sets, create cash flow and limit liabilities

Ironically, its so you dont have to worry about money and work so hard

I would gladly give this to anyone who steps in my house so they can hopefully find a good structure for financial freedom

There is nothing to exploit as if your not looking to create cash flow or own a*sets your probably already being exploited

Anything written by Robert Greene.

There's a bunch in here that are great reads as well such as The Alchemist, The Four Agreements, and The Richest Man in Babylon, to name just a few.
