One year, a hundred books – 2016 edition

Trying to summarize my 2016 book-format lectures.

Just providing a one-to-five star rating system and a link to the book. I will try to add a 50-word summary along the road.

  1. The richest man in Babylon; George S. Clason, 1926 [SP edition]

This is the very first book every 12-14 kid should read the basics of proper capitalism. Simple and basic tried-and-true lessons around expenditure control, paying yourself first and wealth tracking.

TL;DR: savings is the key.

3. Eat. Nourish. Grow; Cheryl Barnhart, 2015

4. The Paradox of Choice; Barry Schwartz, 2004

5. Rich Dad, Poor Dad; Robert Kiyosaki, 2011
