What are the best financial books and blogs you've read and recommend?

Why did you like them?

I'd love to get recommendations on all types of financial success resources, and especially if it's entrepreneurship and business related (my personal likes).

"The Richest Man in Babylon" by George S. Clason - great beginners lessons.

"The Millionaire Next Door" by Thomas J. Stanley - provides a good mindset.

I think that Warren Buffet's letters to shareholders are the best financial writings available. And they are free and easy to obtain - just search for them on the internet. These will take a long time to read and should be read slowly, with lots of breaks to look up topics and terms that may not make sense.

"SOLD: Don't Go Poor and Miserable Being Sold Happiness" , which is my own book. It provides a good introduction to some very practical advice on the "Being Sold" and the "Consumerism" side of the personal finance equation. But of course I'm biased. Especially good for the 16 to 35 crowd or for those without much business experience.

I follow the Rich Dad advisors a lot, so pretty much any of the books published by them are great. I just finished "Start Your Own Corporation" from Garrett Sutton, and now looking forward to his new book "Run Your Own Corporation" which is the companion book to the former.

I know it's all purely about financial topics, but it has a lot of great financial tips regarding business, and a lot of it I think relates to personal finances, too.

"Your money or Your Life" is also a great classic.
The Number by Lee Eisenberg, which will connect you to:
The Seven Stages of Money Maturity by George Kinder. Kinder talks about the concept of Life Planning, versus just Financial Planning.

JD and Trent at the simple dollar have a section on recommended books.

John R Burley, Australia's Money Secrets Of The Rich is a good one. It has a good step by step process to take. It also outlines the 7 levels of investor and challenges you to figure out which one you are and get yourself to level 4.
