I love to read. Seriously. If you saw my Kindle, you’d think that I never get anything done. I am never reading just one book either. Usually I’ve got 2 or 3 different books (on different topics) that I’m wading through at one time. I read one for a bit, lay it down, read the next and so on.

I do love a good fiction book, but I also love anything that can help me be more organized, save money, succeed in business or just live simpler.

For this post though? I want to show you some of my favorite frugal living and money saving books.

For me, a book becomes my favorite on the subject when the author clearly demonstrates that they are an expert in the subject because honestly?

If someone is writing a book on a topic? They need to be an expert. The 5 money saving books below are by people who have done exactly that.

Clearly demonstrated that they know what they are talking about when it comes to saving money, making money, investing or just living a simple and frugal life.

Just as a side note: Most of these are also available on Audible.com as audiobooks.

If you’re more of an audio listener than a reader, you can get 2 FREE audio book from Audible HERE.

Just make sure that you keep in mind that it is a free trial (the book is yours to keep though) so if you do not want to keep the membership, you’ll need to cancel. I like the membership though and am considering keeping it.

2. Money Master the Game: 7 Simple Steps to Financial Freedom

In his first book in two decades, Anthony Robbins turns to the topic that vexes us all: How to secure financial freedom for ourselves and for our families. “If there were a Pulitzer Prize for investment books, this one would win, hands down” (Forbes.com).

Tony Robbins is one of the most revered writers and thinkers of our time. People from all over the world—from the disadvantaged to the well-heeled, from twenty-somethings to retirees—credit him for giving them the inspiration and the tools for transforming their lives.

From diet and fitness, to business and leadership, to relationships and self-respect, Tony Robbins’s books have changed people in profound and lasting ways. Now, for the first time, he has assembled an invaluable “distillation of just about every good personal finance idea of the last forty years” (The New York Times).

Based on extensive research and interviews with some of the most legendary investors at work today (John Bogle, Warren Buffett, Paul Tudor Jones, Ray Dalio, Carl Icahn, and many others), Tony Robbins has created a 7-step blueprint for securing financial freedom. With advice about taking control of your financial decisions, to setting up a savings and investing plan, to destroying myths about what it takes to save and invest, to setting up a “lifetime income plan,” the book brims with advice and practices for making the financial game not only winnable—but providing financial freedom for the rest of your life.

“Put MONEY on your short list of new books to read…It’s that good” (Marketwatch.com).

4. I Will Teach You To Be Rich

At last, for a generation that's materially ambitious yet financially clueless comes I Will Teach You To Be Rich, Ramit Sethi's 6-week personal finance program for 20-to-35-year-olds.

A completely practical approach delivered with a nonjudgmental style that makes readers want to do what Sethi says, it is based around the four pillars of personal finance— banking, saving, budgeting, and investing—and the wealth-building ideas of personal entrepreneurship.

Sethi covers how to save time by not wasting it managing money; the guns and cars myth of credit cards; how to negotiate like an Indian—the conversation begins with “no”; why “Budgeting Doesn't Have to Suck!”; how to get things rolling—for real—with only $20; what most people don't understand about taxes; how to get a CEO to take you out to lunch; how to avoid the Super Mario Brothers trap by making your savings work harder than you do; the difference between cheap and frugal; the hidden relationship between money and food.

Not to mention his first key lesson: Getting started is more important than being the smartest person in the room.
