Over the last thirty years, I have read several finance and investing books. Finance and Investing is not only interesting, but is a very important topic for anyone who wants to lead a balanced life, doing what one wants to do. It includes personal finance, portfolio design and stock picking. I have made a list of the books that I found impressive. Please find the list below.
