We meet in an elevator. You’re stoked & ask for book recommendations . . .

We both walk into an elevator, and my name tag says, “Yvette Owo.” Suddenly, you’re excited! You love Financially Fab and meeting me is 2nd only to meeting Lady Gaga.  (Okay, maybe this is a fantasy of mine.  ;-) A girl’s gotta have dreams.) After you get an autograph for yourself, best friend, and future children, you ask for book recommendations.  I recommend the following:

On Personal Finance

If you only read one book on Personal Finance in the next few years, choose one of these:

On Long-Term Investing / Mutual Funds

 If you only read one book, choose any of these:

 

On Beating the Market

If you want to beat the market, read all of these books before making the first trade, opening up a brokerage account, or otherwise throwing your cash into a crapshoot.  If you’re not willing to read just 4 books, you should get out of the game. If you still want to beat the market after reading, go for it! Track all your trading costs, losses, and gains.  In 10 years, if made any money, let me know!  I’ll be surprised and happy for you!
