Ever since Robert Kiyosaki's Rich Dad Poor Dad awoken me to the financial aspect of life especially the rat race, i've been an avid reader of personal finance & investment books. Thus far the best series i've read is the Little Book Big Profits series whose authors are among the best in their respective fields.
There are 16 books in the series as of this writing. I've only bought the first two (left most of picture) & borrowed the rest from library & read them twice before returning. The library in S'pore is a tremendous asset to the average person compared to someone living elsewhere.
Money is an important topic to learn about. Being a slave to money & slaving away all our lives working for it is a terrible price to pay. Perhaps that's one reason why money is not taught in school or else businesses & government would lack workers who would work in fear of not having enough money. Fear keeps the workers obedient to a large extent which is necessary especially in a large top-down command chain corporation.
