The Wealthy Barber: Everyone’s Commonsense Guide to Becoming Financially Independent

I was required to read this book by David Chilton for the Personal Finance class I’m taking. I’m not going to talk much about it; I’ll just say that if you need a quick overview on a bunch of really important financial topics, this is a good, short, easy-to-understand book. It talks about stuff like savings, wills, life insurance, retirement, purchasing a home, investing, and taxes. Yeah, I know!—all the scary stuff… but it really is so important!

Yeah, I read this for personal finance, too, and really enjoyed it. I wonder what happened to my copy of it, actually... hmm... Anyway, it's a great overview of financial matters, taught me a lot.
