1) You’re Not Broke, You’re Pre-Rich, Emilie Bellet
Ok, money can be boring, so we love the way this book brings fun into subject with little smileys, angry faces and sad faces scattered around the pages.
Alongside the fun and talking about budgeting and managing your bank balance, Bellet also digs deep into investing.
The book is easy to navigate and one to pass down to the kids, for sure!
‘Money is so central to our lives that it literally controls and governs us all, and because of its all-pervasive role, most of us spend most of our time trying very hard not to think about it; or even try to actively ignore it.’
2) , Richard Templar
If you’re looking for some straight-talking advice, this book is the perfect read. It’s full of useful advice and the perfect rulebook for anyone looking to hold and build wealth.
A neatly packaged and easy read, the book shows 100 ways you can be wealthy.
The book really is good common sense, and at times you may even feel like you’re being told off, but it will prompt you into making sound decisions.
‘You may well have enough money, but it leaks away before you get to spend it… Before you can control you finances you have to stop the leaks.’
3) , Jen Sincero
Oh yes you are! According to this book, you are a wealth magnet and you can be rich!
If you’re lacking inspiration, really need a boost, then Sincero does just that with some humour along the way.
The book will want to make you do and see things differently – in fact it’s a complete manifestation of how to get the rich life you want.
‘One of the best ways to find out how you truly feel truly feel about money is to write a letter to it as if were a person.’
4) The Life-Changing Magic of Numbers, Bobby Seagull
You may think you need to be a maths genius to be good with money, but you don’t! Seagull shows how maths is for everyone and how it can be applied to everyday life with ease.
Seagull, a maths teacher and University Challenge star, manages to connect maths to his passion for sports and science, for example, and shows how numbers are around us every day – maths isn’t as scary as you may think! Building confidence with maths can help you better manage your money.
