Over the years friends and family have asked me where they can find information about interest rates on credit cards, certificates of deposit, and mortgages. The only site that I ever recommend them is Bankrate, they have all the info and tools to find the right mortgage, credit card, etc.
Through the years I realized that the most important resource that I ever relied on was the written word. I have included a montage of books that have been instrumental to making me the person I am today. Some of these books may have only had one important chapter, but I have learned that even that one chapter may change a life. Please take note that when you click on any book it will lead you to Amazon's website where you can continue your journey on finding the book that may inspire you. Read and learn and you will find true wealth.
