Here is a pointless story. All through my adult like I was terrible with money. Not only was I terrible with money, but I didn't care that I was terrible with money. Like, I felt no real motivation to change my habits. Then one day, at an old job, a colleague brought in some books he was throwing out. Among them was a book about learning to use money. I have no idea why I picked it up, but I did. And it changed my life.
The tragedy is I can't even remember what that book was called. It was — even then — a relatively old book about managing money but I started reading it on the train home. Then I kept reading it when I got home.
Before I knew it I had finished the book and, because of it, completely transformed the way I thought about, and use, money. I've pretty much used those fundamentals ever since. I'm not rich, far from it. But I am now in a far better place financially than I would be had I not read that book.
Which is all just a long winded way of asking this question: have you ever read a book that legitimately changed your life for the better? And if so, what was it?
And while we're at it — any book recommendations? I want you to recommend a book that will legitimately change my life all over again.
