35 Top Investment Books of All Time to Learn Investing

Posted by Grace under Investing on January 3, 2016

Try to read these top investment books to get more ideas on investing. Many of us wants to become a successful investor like Warren Buffett. The reason why Warren Buffett became a successful investor is “continuous learning”. How can you learn and grow as an investor? The answer is by attending seminars, talking to investments experts, consulting to financial experts and read investing books.

I prefer to read investment books rather than reading fictions. So, far I have read personal finance and investing book like CashFlow Quadrant of Robert T. Kiyosaki, Build Your Own Mutual Fund of Brian O’Connell, The Lifetime Guide to Money published by Wall Street Journal and the book of Suze Orman entitled “The Money Book for The Young Fabulous and Broker”.
