You’re not going to find The Secret or Think and Grow rich in this list. It’s not about attracting wealth into your life, this list is about creating wealth through your actions.
With that said, this is the Ultimate List when it comes to the Best Books on Getting Rich:
1. The richest man in Babylon – by George S. Clason
This is the 1st book we recommended,
The richest man in Babylon is a fundamental book in terms of thinking about your life in relation to money & what it means to buy your freedom.
The lessons you’ll learn from this one book are enough to change your future if you’re open to listen or read it.
2. Rich Dad Poor Dad – by Robert Kiyosaki
Growing up poor, Whenever people ask us how to build sustainable wealth,
Rich dad poor dad always comes up as the go-to recommendation because it’s so easy to digest, unlike most focused financial books.

3. The Millionaire Fastlane – by MJ Demarco
This is another book that’s lesser-known than the previous two, but it shifted our focus in our journey.
When you’re starting out, you don’t have the money to buy rental properties or millions of dollars to invest in the stock market. This book addresses this issue.
The best option you have is to start a business that has the potential to blow up
The Millionaire Fastlane is a must read for those of you who are feeling a hunger and are able to throw themselves completely into making this happen.
It’s the most realistic approach you’ll ever find when it comes to getting rich quicker than through traditional cut costs, savings & investments.
4. Money master the game & Unshakable – by Tony Robbins
Money Master the Game together with Unshakable is probably the most valuable resource tony robbins has ever put out.
Money Master the game is the best option someone who’s not a creative entrepreneur has at building sustainable wealth.
If you’re not ready to build a business or product that’s going to make you millions, this book will provide you with step by step instructions on what to do exactly if you want to get rich.
Unshakable is a must-read for anyone who wants to take the first lessons to the next level - it is also the strategy we, and almost every other rich individual, use to make money during recessions like the one we have ahead of us right now.
5. The Intelligent Investor – by Benjamin graham
Warren Buffet calls this: The best book on investing ever written! And we tend to agree.
If you are going to invest in the stock market by buying shares in companies, this is your crash course into long term and safe investing.
It teaches you how to look at a company and understand its financials in order to determine if you should invest or not.
Almost every long term successful investor has followed the exact strategy Graham has outlined in his book called: VALUE INVESTING
And so should you until something even better comes along.
6. Principles – Ray Dalio
Ray Dalio has just under 140 billion dollars under management. He’s the guy in charge of making the rich even richer.
The barrier to entry is at least 7.5 million to invest, with yearly fees of a minimum of $500,000. When this guy writes a book about everything he’s learned in his career, it’s a must-read.
Principles outline Dalio’s line of thinking and it’s these core ideas that change the way you move when it comes to money.
“If you want to be rich study the rich!”
7. The 4 Hour Work week- by Tim Ferriss
This has been another life-changer for us. Everybody in our organization has been working remotely by choice since the beginning.
The 4 hours work week showcased the possibility of building and running a business from anywhere in the world, which at the time we read the book was something completely revolutionary.
Of course we work a lot more than 4 hours, but we used the lessons on automation and outsourcing to dramatically accelerate the growth of our business.
Instead of paying for expensive office space, we can afford to pay our employees more & the talent is not limited to one location.
The four hour work week is probably the best book for those of you who enjoy the freelancer lifestyle but maybe want to build it into a multi-million dollar business. We can’t recommend it enough.
8. Zero to one – by peter thiel
Peter thiel is one of our favorite investors, for those of you who don’t know, he’s the co-founder of paypal with Elon Musk & right now he’s one of the few people who can actually rival Elon in terms of successful companies and innovation.
Zero to One is one of those books that forces your mind to think about possibilities, about what building the future implies and how you can be part of it.
If you’re looking to build the next world-changing start-up, this book is your best starting point.
9. The Parable of the Pipeline – by Burke hedges
Speaking of short reads, to this very day we haven’t found a more compact gold nugget than this one.
We’ve gifted this one over 100 times to friends who want to learn more about business but are not avid readers.
It’s less than 125 pages - meaning you can read it all in 3 hours or so even if you’re a slow reader - and the lesson is buried in a very easy to follow story.
Anyone reading this book understands that their focus needs to change and something clicks in you as you progress through the pages.
10. How to win friends and influence people – by Dale Carnegie
Although technology is changing fast, the way we talk and interact with one another in the business world still relies on fundamentals
In my opinion, this is Carnegie’s Magnum Opus, the best piece he’s ever put out and the fact that it stood the test of time is a testament to just how valuable the information is.
Even if you’re not a business person, this book will help you get ahead in life through the way you communicate.
