There are literally thousands of personal finance books out there (I found 12,701 results on www.chapters.indigo.ca)… with so many options it can be difficult to choose just one!
Don’t worry, I’ve devised a one-question quiz that will help you narrow down the search to find a great book that fits your financial advice personality.
Each of the books below are some of my top picks for personal finance. They survived the big tidy-up I did back in November where I lovingly released two boxes full of books that didn’t “spark joy”- so yeah, I think they’re pretty great. This week I cracked them open and re-read my favourite bits!
Ready to find out which one is right for you?
Here’s the question:
Don’t think about it too much. Go with your gut.
Got your answer? Remember your letter and read on for your financial advice personality and my book recommendation.
