Alice Schroeder's, "The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life"

Alice Schroeder's book is a must-have in the library of any aspiring investor. Warren Buffett is a fantastic person who has achieved unprecedented goals in his life. Alice Schroeder spent five years talking to the protagonist of her future book, his family, friends, and business partners.

Bodo Schaefer's, "The Road To Financial Freedom"

We really like this author! He explains complicated things in simple words, arranging everything on the shelves. This book has many specific and practical recommendations. How to save? How to set financial goals and achieve them? How to get rid of debts?

It seems that many authors write on the same eternal topics. But Schaefer does it as a good teacher: clearly, specifically, with humor and examples from life. We will say for ourselves: after reading "The Road...", we want to roll mountains, literally.


Carl Richards', "The Behavior Gap. Simple Ways to Stop Doing Dumb Things with Money"

The author of the book is a guru of financial planning. He gives a bunch of funny examples of how we continuously fall into the same traps of useless spending.
