In recent times, there has been an explosion of information relating to Financial Intelligence. Thanks to the internet, there are lots of blog posts, social media accounts, that are dedicated to providing resources about finance, money, and other related concepts.
The Information age has also bridged the knowledge gap between the so-called “elites” and those we refer to as the “common people”. This way, anyone from anywhere can become wealthy by simply applying the knowledge he/she has acquired from the numerous sources available. In other words, every individual now has access to potential power to be all that they want to be.
We have put together a list of 10 books out of the thousands of books on financial intelligence that we believe will boost your financial intelligence almost instantly. However, it is important to note that the results are totally dependent on you and how you apply the knowledge you get from these books.
Here are the top 10 books that will boost your financial intelligence:
Rich Dad, Poor Dad
Rich Dad Poor Dad is Robert’s story of growing up with two dads — his real father and the father of his best friend, his rich dad — and the ways in which both men shaped his thoughts about money and investing. The book explodes the myth that you need to earn a high income to be rich and explains the difference between working for money and having your money work for you.
The Intelligent Investor
The greatest investment advisor of the twentieth century, Benjamin Graham, taught and inspired people worldwide. Graham’s philosophy of “value investing” — which shields investors from substantial error and teaches them to develop long-term strategies — has made The Intelligent Investor the stock market bible ever since its original publication in 1949.
Over the years, market developments have proven the wisdom of Graham’s strategies. While preserving the integrity of Graham’s original text, this revised edition includes updated commentary by noted financial journalist Jason Zweig, whose perspective incorporates the realities of today’s market, draws parallels between Graham’s examples and today’s financial headlines, and gives readers a more thorough understanding of how to apply Graham’s principles.
Vital and indispensable, this HarperBusiness Essentials edition of The Intelligent Investor is the most important book you will ever read on how to reach your financial goals.

The most famous of all teachers of success spent “a fortune and the better part of a lifetime of effort” to produce the “Law of Success” philosophy that forms the basis of his books and that is so powerfully summarized in this one.
