How Are These The Best Investment Books?

We know what you’re thinking: “some of these books aren’t about investing?”

The reality is that some of the best investment books we’ve ever read are not explicitly about investing in stocks, bonds, real estate or other asset classes. They are about shifting your mindset from scarcity to abundance, building out a business or side-hustle so you can earn enough additional income to actually invest, or to craft the necessary habits required to become successful in building wealth.

Trust us when we say that the books above and – when you’re ready – those that follow are the best investment books for the 1% (like you) who are trying to gain an edge on the other 99% of the population.

Mindset & Psychology

The Best Investment Books to Shift Your Thinking

Never will you hear the best investors in the world make a claim that “mindset doesn’t matter” or that “becoming successful is all about skill and never about beliefs”.

The reality is that those who hold all the gold, tend to have the best habits of mind whether explicitly developed or unconciously inherited over their lives.

The following list are what we would consider to be the best investment books to shift your thinking and grow your mental habits in a productive way.

The Richest Man in Babylon

The secret of the rich isn’t a secret at all

Set in ancient Babylon, this book is an inspiring collection of stories about people who have struggled with—and overcome—the same money problems most Americans face: feeling trapped by debt, living paycheck to paycheck, with little to no savings.

Stock Market Investing & Stock Trading

The Best Investment Books to Trade in the Stock Market

Early in our adult lives, each member of the Invested Teacher Team had negative experiences associated with investing in the stock market. After spending more than a decade learning and investing in real estate, we recognized that while our ignorance related to the stock market may seem like bliss, the reality is that we were hurting ourselves by not investing the time and energy to understand the stock market including macro-economics, fundamental analysis of stocks, bonds and indices, and technical analysis. 

Therefore, we have invested a significant amount of time, energy and money through courses and programs to understand the stock market and how we can use it to help us on our wealth building journey. The following list are what we would consider to be the best investment books to get you learning about investing in the stock market so that you aren’t blindly following your big bank’s strategy without any confidence.

The Best Investment Books for Tax & Estate Planning

We are the first to admit it: we never thought that there would ever be a place for a whole life insurance policy in the early years of our wealth building journey. Some of the most well known financial advisors in the world have always called it a “bad investment” and we agreed… until we learned how powerful properly structured whole life insurance policies can be for long-term wealth creation, tax planning and overall succession planning.

We have spent thousands of hours reading, watching and meeting with experts in the Infinite Banking world to understand exactly how a properly structured whole life insurance policy can easily be one of the greatest tools in your wealth building arsenal. Below you will find the best investment books to get you properly structured now for the wealth you’ll be accumulating over the remainder of your lifetime. 

Full disclosure: reading all of these books will not necessarily mean you will “know it all” when it comes to the why or how of Infinite Banking, but you’ll certainly be on the right track to get your first whole life insurance policy opened to avoid the regret these Invested Teachers feel having not acted years ago.

Entrepreneurship & Side-Hustling

The Best Investment Books for Generating More Income & Seed Funds

I know: the reason you are so heavily invested in learning how to build your wealth is to work less, not more. However, the reality is that too many people are seeking ways to replace their current income when they should be finding ways to add to their current income in order to build their investment portfolio. This means that unless you have a substantial amount of monthly cashflow coming in from your current career, you may need to work harder and for longer each day to generate that investment seed money you need to get the ball rolling.

Luckily for the Invested Teacher Team, each of us has always had the passion to learn and explore new opportunities and that has led us down some interesting paths to “side hustles” and even changing career paths. Regardless of where you are in the journey, here are the best investment books to get you to understand how you might open your own business or how you can start a side-hustle that will provide you with the extra funds you need to build your investment portfolio.

These are the best investment books to help you better understand yourself and the people you will need to be working with (not against) to maximize your opportunity to win with others at the investing game.

From an early age, it is drilled into our heads: Restlessness, distraction, and ignorance are the enemies of success.

How to Be an Antiracist

Antiracism is a transformative concept that reorients and reenergizes the conversation about racism—and, even more fundamentally, points us toward liberating new ways of thinking about ourselves and each other. At its core, racism is a powerful system that creates false hierarchies of human value; its warped logic extends beyond race, from the way we regard people of different ethnicities or skin colors to the way we treat people of different sexes, gender identities, and body types.
