Best Investment Books

A Listmania! list by Terry W. Sprouse, Lincoln-holic, Public Speaker "Investor, Lincolnholic, Public Speaker" (Tucson, Arizona)
The list author says: "Investment books have played an important role in my life. I first learned to invest in mutual funds 20-some years ago through a book by Charles Givens. I also was initially inspired to invest in real estate by reading "Creating Wealth" by Robert Allen, again many years back. Investment books, like the ones below do much more than teach and inspire us, they can lead to more comfotable life. Maybe not an easier life, because they require to learn new ways of thinking and often require hard work, but at least a more financially comfortable life.

As Thomas Edison said, "Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.""
