From Amy's list on the best books to break your reading lull.
How a book about money is so interesting is beyond me (I assume it has something to do with the author truly understanding, ahem, psychology). But this one is getting rave reviews for good reason. It’s almost addictive to read. Using nineteen short stories, it explores how historical figures navigated wealth, shows you why it was either a winning or losing strategy, and helps you apply to see the relevance to your own financial situation. This book will suck you in and make you realize that a lot of your own financial decisions shouldn’t be made on paper-only.
From Robert's list on the best books on early retirement and financial independence.
A page-turner about personal finance? This one comes close! Humor is a key ingredient throughout, along with an approachable, off-the-cuff writing style. The chapter on retiring early with kids does a superb job of overturning myths by telling the stories of parents who have actually achieved it. The advice on "Don't Follow Your Passion (Yet)" is spot-on, as is their fun-to-read revelation that traveling the world can actually be cheaper than staying at home.
From Scott's list on the best finance books for biblically conservative Christians.
Ms. Pegue is a speaker and television host on TBN. She made a splash in 2005 with her book, 30 Days to Taming Your Tongue, which she then capitalized on by publishing a 30 Day Series. Taming Your Finances was second in the series.
Although some of Ms. Pegues’s other books are outwardly Christian, this one is not.
Ms. Pegue has no children, which will compromise her credibility with readers who have children. With eight children, no debt, and two paid-off mortgages on a single-income pastor’s salary, I believe I’ll have the credibility they desire.
Ms. Pegue was the CFO of West Angeles Church of God in Christ when it took on a $35 million loan to construct their building, which was the largest loan ever given to a religious institution.
The book is also fairly short at only 140 pages.
