would be interesting to share with you some of her favorite finds throughout the years as it relates to finance as well as every day life, skills, and practices. Jennifer provides her thoughts on each book below. Enjoy!
The Psychology of Money by Morgan Housel
I read this book in 2021. Housel compares the academic side of investing to human nature. In other words, comparing theoretical to practical. I agree with Morgan’s definition of the value of money, the ability to manage your time.
Women & Money by Suze Orman
I read my first Suze Orman book back in my early twenties. She is a big fan of financial planning. This book is great for anyone who is starting to invest and covers a lot of the behavioral reasons of why we shy away from managing our finances.
How to Retire Rich by James O’Shaughnessy
I bought this book because of the title make no mistake. I believed Jim’s strategy was very straight forward and easy to copy. Based upon my inexperience, I couldn’t understand the biases and pitfalls at that time, but it made me a believer in the concept of quantitative analysis.
Talking to Strangers by Malcolm Gladwell
I am a fan of Malcolm Gladwell books. I made my teenage boys read this one because our society is so quick to judge, and social media campaigns get traction so quickly that little consideration is given to the other point of view.
Wealth of Wisdom by Tom McCullough
This is a series of essays on a variety of topics from different professionals. I read these types of books out of order. I start at chapter 1 and then move to the last chapter and end in the middle.
