If you think books are meant to be nothing more than diet for silverfish, you are grossly mistaken! The modern professional times are those in which good performance and nothing else counts for one to reach the pinnacle of success. For performing well, you need to constantly polish your skills, as amazingly as it is observed today, the skills become outdated in no time. These are times when not only skills, but concepts too have limited lifespan and in order to survive, you need to constantly keep updating your knowledge database. This makes reading literature, most often worthy books, imperative. The leading personal finance blog Smartmoney has come up with a collection of 5 books that are worth giving a read.
- AfterShock authored by David Wiedemer, Robert Wiedemer and Cindy Spitzer is a book that you must read if you want to shield yourself from the devastating effects of another economic crunch. The Nostradamic predictions of the authors about the economic future of America are simply unnerving. Unemployment, inflation and interest rates percentages forecasted to be in double digits, paints a gloomy picture.The stock market, real estate, the value of the dollar and a number of such issues are expected to bring out interconnected impacts which are expected to adversely affect the common man. According to the authors, the nightmarish recession is not over as most of us would love to believe, it has rather started. They have come up with solutions and strategies that you could consider to survive during the coming economically dry days like cactus in the dessert ! So go ahead and read up this book that tells you exactly how to cope up with the aftershocks of the economic earthquake.
- Common Sense on Mutual Funds by John C. Bogle is a book that pumps the human brain with what it is commonly supposed to have, but what it is commonly lacking in- i.e. commonsense! This is great read on investment advice and works as an investment guide, especially when it comes to investing in mutual funds. Coming from an author, who’s been writing on the subject for about a decade now, the book is an authentic source of investment advice written in lucid style. So go ahead and collect your share of commonsense from this Bogle book.
- The other three books that make an enjoyable read are Broke by John B. Mumford, The Art of Making Money By Jason Kersten, and U for Undertow by Sue Grafton. In his book, Mumford suggests what every American Business is aptly supposed to do to restore financial stability and ensure economic stability in the future. The Art of Making Money is all about how a social outcast applies criminal mind to make millions. Honestly I wonder, in times infested with fraudulence in every possible sphere of life man can think of, if the analysis of the strategies of a career criminalist is going to do any good to society. U for Undertow explores American life about a couple of decades ago. This is more of a detective novel with adequate drama.
