Books

This page contains a comprehensive list of the best books on personal finance, entrepreneurship, investing, business and economics that I read, am reading or will read.

For some of the books in this page them I provide summaries, with which I found particularly relevant about book. R stands for “Read”, for books I have already read, and T stands for “To Read”, for books I will read next. I also rank every book from 1 to 10.

I will make my very best to read two of books a month (and leave a summary/review here). The links to the books are affiliate links (which means I get a commission if you buy the books through my blog), which is a way to support this blog and that I sincerely appreciate it.

If there is a specific book you would like a summary for, shoot me a message. Note that this section will only contain the best books on personal finance, entrepreneurship, investing and startups. I will also add books written by myself, during 2017.
