Can anyone else recommend some books that might be good to read
for those of us who are interested in building financial wealth?
A read a book called "Smart women finish rich" by David Bach, it will work for men as well.

I think I have heard of the book "Start late finish rich,"
but I have not read it yet.

I want to read as many books as I can on this and other subjects.
There are probably a lot of books out there that discuss building wealth. I'm sure some are better than others, but I guess it is up to us the readers to figure out what best works for us and what does not.

Thanks for contributing to this thread with your recommendations.

I should say that one does not have to be wealthy to learn how to manage money wisely.

Whether you are a millionaire or working a job making minimum wage, it is always a good idea to budget and spend your money wisely.

Saving is important too, even if you can only put aside a few pennies every month, it is better than not saving at all. We all have to start somewhere.

Learning to live within our means is important too.
Nothing wrong with striving to do better or to make more money, but it is never a good idea to spend money that we don't have on things that we really don't need.

True if a 20 year old puts away just $15 a week up to the age of 65 he/she will have well over a million dollars for retirement. Surly someone can do that.

"]Check out Dr. Farrah Gray's books.
I remember reading about him becoming a millionaire at the age of 14 or 15.
http://farrahgray.com/

Here are some books by him I plan to read:
"Reallionaire: Nine Steps of Becoming Rich on the Inside Out"
"Get Real, Get Rich: Conquer the 7 Lies Blocking You from Success"
"The Truth Shall Make You Rich: The New Road Map to Radical Prosperity"
MACEO

Excellent! I read on Farrah Gray prior but he's less than 1% of the Black men who did something productive with his life!

Farrah saw his Father didnt' do anything for this Mother, abandoned them, Ran off with White women and left them to fend for themselves. His Mother worked 2-3 jobs and she had a heart attack, while Farrah father continue to harass his wife he abandoned and beat saying she wasn't worth anything to him; White women were superior!

(Sounds like you)

That's what motivated Farrah to do something with his life! He's brilliant and amazing! Because of his "No Good Father" he decided that he will always make enough money to provide for his Mother and Grandmother who he adores!

That's Truly GOD!

Look how you wasted your life! lmao Your the opposite of this Brilliant young man!

Scoffers like you MACEO need to be STONED and thrown out the Black community; your a waste!

That's exactly why Black parents have to practice good money management and saving habits, and teach their children to do the same.

Another book I have on my list to read is called "Rich Dad Poor Dad: what the rich teach their kids about money that the poor and middle class do not!"

From what I've heard about that book, I don't think I would agree with everything in it, but I do agree that the poor and the middle class need to teach their children about money, budgeting, and investing at an early age. The public library and university libraries are full of books on this topic that can be checked out for free.

If children are at least taught the basics about saving more and spending less, they will have a much better chance of accumulating some form of wealth by the time they are adults.

It takes two parents in the home who have similar values! Black men like yourself who didn't have those values and didn't value education or goal setting called Black women names for trying to do better.

That's why Black women are dating/marrying White males because your "Late in the Game" your 60 years old!

Your Father should have taught you these tools! That's why Black women don't want Black men! In many cases even when Black women are the breadwinners; Black males "Values Differ" like yours!

You value chasing Trashy WW, getting a Car, a few gadgets and chasing SEX from poor White women and you thought you accomplished alot....you were arrogant!

An Educated person have different values then you! They value education, schooling, conducting your life to gain respect, helping others all the value that you don't "Inhabit"!

So Black women don't want Black men for many reasons! Not only is it the Narcissistic Wrong mentalities like yourself but you don't have the same values!

Black men want to live off women and chase ASS, buy a car, few gadgets, chase Puzzy so you can brag to your Broke Friends on how your getting over on your wife like a FOOL! LMAO

Everybody see it in you and many other Black males which is why we are running from Black males!

You never sacrificed; so you feel entitled without earning it! It simply doesn't work that way MACEO!

In the end like yourself; many Black men end up old, broke and dying alone! Even your children or family don't have any respect for the collective group of Black males like yourself!

You LOOK FOOLISH!

Another thing I have been doing to save money is to actually save the money that I save when using coupons or buying things on sale.

For example if I buy a product that cost 2.00 and use a coupon that is .50 off for that product, I will put .50 (the coupon value) in my savings account. In other words, the money that I saved by using the coupon goes into my savings account.

Also, if I purchase an item that is on sale, I will put the money I saved by buying the item on sale into my savings account. For example, if a 15.00 shirt is on sale for 10.00 I saved 5.00 by buying it on sale. I will take that 5.00 and put it into my savings account.

This helps me see what I'm doing with the money that I save by using coupons and buying items on sale when I can. Over time this
money adds up, depending on how many times you make purchases on sale or use coupons.

Clarification:

That ".50" coupon is fifty cents. I was not sure if the decimal point I put in front of the .50 could be seen.

A friend of mine read that book and she loved it. I have yet to read it but I probably will. About to start Outliners, was skimming over it at Costco and an older gentleman approached me telling me what a great book it was and that he read it while out in the Marina on his yacht. He said he was buying a few copies for friends, needless to say I bought it, I also bought "What The Dog Saw" and going to purchase Blink and the Tipping Point as well. I've heard a lot of good things about Malcolm Gladwell.

Thank you very much for sharing this with me. My goal is to read more than I usually do. I read text books, but I want to expand my reading to other types of books (fiction and non-fiction).

Although this thread is about wealth and millionaires, I am interested in so many other subjects (physics, music, film making, math, technology, etc.).

I'll have to add the books you mentioned to my growing list of books to read.
