On this page, I’m sharing my book reads about investing, retirement, marketing, and passive income. I’ll probably also share websites, youtube channels and other places of information I’ve found useful.
Here are a few of the books I’m currently reading or have read
Retirement Investing for Income only by Bruce Miller; CFP
This is by far one of the better books I’ve read on investing, in
The Acquirer’s Multiple:How the Billionaire Contrarians of Deep Value beat the market by Tobias Carlisle
This was simply not one of my favorite investment reads. He mentions investors whose family gave them say 600K and talks about Warren Buffet a lot. He paints a lot of situations that simply don’t exist for most of us, buying out companies and more. I think it’s a simple equation that could be said in fewer words with
Bonds: The Unbeaten Path to Secure Investment Growth by Hildy and Stan Richelson

More books I’ve read and recommend:
The Missing Risk Premium: Why Low Volatility Investing Works by Eric Falkenstein.
Falkenstein talks about why taking on additional risks at some point is not beneficial. He presents lots of data and information about how stocks with low volatility have outperformed those of high volatility and high risks over the last few decades. Eric is quite humorous so it’s a funny read; although the jargon gets heavy a few times.
The art of the Start 2.0 by Guy Kawaski
Living off your Money:
The Modern Mechanics of Investing During Retirement with Stocks and Bonds by Michael McClung
This is a great book for any investor to own, especially those nearing retirement. I will say it’s a bit overwhelming, in that it has more spreadsheets and data than imaginable. He is on a mission to prove his point, which is withdrawing the same amount every year in retirement is an outdated approach to retirement investing. He shows how a large number of tactics perform over the course of decades and some ways to be best prepared for retirement. One main takeaway-don’t go too conservative with your investments or you stand the chance of running out of money!
The Misbehavior of Markets by Mandelbrot
Naked Statistics: Stripping the Dread from the Data by Charles Wheelan
I’m including this book because Statistics is quite useful for stock research. Perhaps you’d like to see how much a stocks price moves around, what the standard deviation is? What does mean/average/mode tell you? You’ll find it all in this book. Once again, Charles is very humorous and it’s not a difficult read for a statistics book.
