Rich Dad Poor Dad

In Rich Dad Poor Dad, the #1 Personal Finance book of all time, Robert Kiyosaki shares the story of his two dad: his real father, whom he calls his ‘poor dad,’ and the father of his best friend, the man who became his mentor and his ‘rich dad.’ One man was well educated and an employee all his life, the other’s education was “street smarts” over traditional classroom education and he took the path of entrepreneurship…a road that led him to become one of the wealthiest men in Hawaii. Robert’s poor dad struggled financially all his life, and these two dads—these very different points of view of money, investing, and employment—shaped Robert’s thinking about money. Robert has challenged and changed the way tens of millions of people, around the world, think about money and investing and he has become a global advocate for financial education and the path to financial freedom. Rich Dad Poor Dad (and the Rich Dad series it spawned) has sold over 36 million copies in English and translated editions around the world. Rich Dad Poor Dad will… • explode the myth that you need to earn a high income to become rich • challenge the belief that your house is an asset • show parents why they can’t rely on the school system to teach their kids about money • define, once and for all, an asset and a liability • explain the difference between good debt and bad debt • teach you to see the world of money from different perspectives • discuss the shift in mindset that can put you on the road to financial freedom

The Psychology of Money

Doing well with money isn’t necessarily about what you know. It’s about how you behave. And behavior is hard to teach, even to really smart people. Money—investing, personal finance, and business decisions—is typically taught as a math-based field, where data and formulas tell us exactly what to do. But in the real world people don’t make financial decisions on a spreadsheet. They make them at the dinner table, or in a meeting room, where personal history, your own unique view of the world, ego, pride, marketing, and odd incentives are scrambled together. In The Psychology of Money, award-winning author Morgan Housel shares 19 short stories exploring the strange ways people think about money and teaches you how to make better sense of one of life’s most important topics.

La psicología del dinero

En cuestiones de dinero, lo que importa no es lo listo que seas sino cómo te comportas. Tendemos a pensar en la inversión o la gestión de las finanzas personales como una disciplina matemática, en la que los datos y las fórmulas nos dicen exactamente qué hacer. Sin embargo, el rasgo que define a las personas que logran enriquecerse no es su destreza con los números, ni su salario o su talento, sino su historia personal, sus motivaciones y su visión única del mundo. Un genio que pierde el control de sus emociones puede ser un desastre financiero. Y lo mismo vale en caso contrario: gente de a pie sin formación en finanzas puede enriquecerse si cuenta con unos cuantos patrones de comportamiento. Esto, impensable en otras disciplinas como la arquitectura o la medicina, es fundamental en el campo de las finanzas. Este libro, llamado a convertirse en un clásico de las finanzas personales, nos provee del conocimiento esencial para entender la psicología del dinero y nos invita a hacernos una pregunta fundamental que raramente nos hacemos, cuál es nuestra relación con el dinero y qué queremos realmente de él. A partir de 18 claves imperecederas, Morgan Housel nos enseña cómo funciona la psicología del dinero y cuáles son los hábitos y conductas que nos ayudarán no solo a generar riqueza, sino, más importante aún, a conservarla. «Un libro imprescindible para cualquiera que quiera tomar decisiones más inteligentes y vivir una vida más rica.»  Daniel Pink , autor de La sorprendente verdad sobre qué nos motiva «Ideas fascinantes y consejos prácticos. Cualquiera que quiera hacerse rico debería tener una copia de este libro.»  James Clear , autor de Hábitos atómicos «Uno de los mejores y más originales libros de finanzas de los últimos años.»  Jason Zweig, Wall Street Journal «Housel es de esos escritores capaces de hacer digeribles conceptos financieros de lo más complejos. Este es un libro que se devora de principio a fin y que no solo nos explica por qué tomamos malas decisiones con respecto al dinero, sino que nos ayudará a tomar mejores.»  Annie Duke, autora de Thinking in Bets La riqueza no es fruto de nuestra inteligencia, talento o trabajo .  Es fruto de nuestro comportamiento.

Die With Zero

A common-sense guide to living rich . . . instead of dying rich Imagine if by the time you died, you did everything you were told to. You worked hard, saved your money, and looked forward to financial freedom when you retired.   The only thing you wasted along the way was . . . your life.   Die with Zero presents a startling new and provocative philosophy as well as practical guide on how to get the most out of your money—and out of your life. It’s intended for those who place lifelong memorable experiences far ahead of simply making and accumulating money for one’s so-called “golden years.”   In short, Bill Perkins wants to rescue you from over-saving and under-living. Regardless of your age, Die with Zero will teach you Perkins’s plan for optimizing your life, stage by stage, so you’re fully engaged and enjoying what you’ve worked and saved for.   You’ll discover how to maximize your lifetime memorable moments with “time-bucketing,” how to convert your earnings into priceless memories by following your “net worth curve,” and how to navigate decisions about whether to invest in, or delay, a meaningful adventure with your “fulfillment curve” and “personal interest rate.”   Using his own life experiences as well as the inspiring stories and cautionary tales of others—and drawing on eye-opening insights about time, money, and happiness from psychological science and behavioral finance—Perkins makes a timely, convincing, and contrarian case for living large.

Breaking Free From Broke

America has become the land of the free and the home of the broke. Household debt is at an all-time high, and every day people—just like you—are feeling more cynical and hopeless about their financial futures. It’s time to stop believing countless lies from a system designed to take your money—lies like student loans are the golden ticket to a good-paying job, car payments are just part of life, and that you need to have a credit card. Ramsey Personality and personal finance expert George Kamel shares his story of going from a negative net worth to a millionaire in under 10 years by following Dave Ramsey’s Baby Steps. George’s delivery, highlighted by his snarky sense of humor, will keep you laughing and engaged from cover to cover (no put-you-to-sleep financial advice here). Through a millennial point of view, George exposes the toxic money system designed to keep you average (and broke) and offers solutions to help you break free from: Credit cards and credit scores Student and car loans Mortgage mistakes Investing traps Marketing and consumerism No matter where you’re starting from, you’ll learn that you have the power to buck the toxic money system and build wealth if you follow the same principles George used to become a millionaire.

Financial Feminist

An instant New York Times bestseller From the globally-recognized personal finance educator and social media star behind Her First $100K, an inclusive guide to all things money—from managing debt to investing and voting with your dollars Tori Dunlap was always good with money. As a kid, she watched her prudent parents balance their checkbook every month and learned to save for musical tickets by gathering pennies in an Altoids tin. But she quickly discovered that her experience with money was pretty unusual, especially among her female friends. It wasn’t our fault. Investigating this financial literacy and wealth gap, Tori found that girls are significantly less likely to receive a holistic financial education; we’re taught to restrain our spending, while boys are taught about investing and rewarded for pursuing wealth. In adulthood, women are hounded by the unfounded stereotype of the frivolous spenders whose lattes are to blame for the wealth gap. And when something like, say, a global pandemic happens, we’re the first to have jobs cut and the last to re-enter the workforce. It's no wonder money is a source of anxiety and a barrier to equality for so many of us. But what if money didn't mean restriction, and instead, choice? The ability to luxuriously travel, quit toxic jobs, donate to important organizations, retire early? The freedom to live the life you want, and change the world while you do it? Tori founded Her First $100K to teach women to overcome the unique obstacles standing in the way of their financial freedom. In Financial Feminist, she distills the principles of her shame- and judgment-free approach to paying off debt, figuring out your value categories to spend mindfully, saving money without monk-like deprivation, and investing in order to spend your retirement tanning in Tulum. You will learn: - Exercises to help you understand your current relationship with money, figure out what you want to change, and how to make that happen - How to decide on your investment goal, and discover the three steps to meeting it - Learn how to source the data you need to negotiate the money you deserve Featuring journaling prompts, deep-dives into the invisible aspects of the financial landscape, and interviews with experts on everything money—from predatory credit card companies to the racial wealth gap and voting with your dollars—Financial Feminist is the ultimate guide to making your money work harder for you (rather than the other way around.)
