Today I will be discussing the Top 10 Best Selling Books for Financial Success On Amazon. Each of these books has been picked due to their popularity or renown, and I have done my best to order them according to their online rankings.

Rankings can change for these books, and I have included a link at the end of this article where you can view a full list of Amazon’s top books under “Finance”.

That being said, please note that each of these books is different and it would be a mistake to consider any one of these books better than the others.

Each of these books has the potential to help you grow, and I hope they help you achieve your goals in life!

With that, lets get right into this…

I like Andrew’s perspective on this. He isn’t giving you a book with a “get rich quick” scheme in mind… If anything, he is actually saying the opposite by advocating that only experience and proper education can make you great as a day trader.

This is an excellent book for anyone wanting to start trading in stocks or who wants a fresh perspective.

I can’t help but feel like this book will be a total mind blower for people who view the rich with a preconceived idea about what it means to be wealthy and successful.

The reality is very surprising when actual habits and lifestyles of affluent people are observed. This is actually an older book republished with a foreword. For those of you who have already picked up an older copy, this 20th Anniversary Edition comes with updates that are most welcome.

    • Yeah, I think that The Millionaire Next Door will really inspire you! I am glad you liked my review, most people I meet aren’t interested in stuff like this, and it is really a shame, I think more people would be happier and more successful if they continued learning financial education.

  1. I’ve read the 7 habits before. It’s a powerful resource for self improvement. I haven’t read the others, but I”m sure they are good. Do you know if the book about tax law is able to explain the new tax law?

  2. That is a very interesting article. So which is your personal favorite? Must say mine top is not on the list which is Shoe Dog, about the founder of Nike. However, 7 Habits is a very powerful and great book. Thanks for the comparison I will definitely check these out and add them on to read list.
