Things Everyone Should Read

I thought a few weeks back about compiling a communal reading list, I'll begin with this:

Peter Singer - Famine, Affluence, and Morality

I would recommend one of the many books by Dave Rasey, I've made my kid read one and will make her read one again when she asks for money. With his plan I should be debt free in 3 1/2 years (I'm including my house in this equation too!!!)

A few of his books:

The Total Money Makeover: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness

More Than Enough: Proven Keys to Strengthening Your Family and Building Financial Peace

Total Money Makeover: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness

Total Money Makeover Workbook (A popular choice)

Dave Ramsey started as a nobody here in Nashville, TN, then became national. A while back, his 300E, the original "Money Game" car came up forsale in the paper even.

I always thought his radio show "advice" was common sense and he is very condensending to his callers. I figured he would last a couple months........apparently a lot of Americans need to hear "don't spend money you do not have".

I forget that not everyone has Swiss and Dutch accountants as grandparents!

LOL, First time I heard him I thought he was an ***. For some reason I listened to him a few times over the next few months before he got cancelled here and did by his book. Great book by the way.

Government by Frederic Bastiat, The Oydessy/Illiad by Homer, Principles of Mathematical Analysis by Rudin, the increasingly inaccurate Hitchhikers Trilogy by Douglas Adams...
and some more stuff later, probably.
