The Millionaire Next Door
By: Thomas J. Stanley and William D. Danko

The Behavior Gap

Against the Gods: The Remarkable Story of Risk
By: Peter Bernstein
"I absolutely loved this history of risk: understanding risk, quantifying risk, mitigating risk throughout the centuries. But I'm a nerd."
By: Nassim Taleb
"This is book four in a truly exhausting five part series, but I think Antifragile is the book that best encapsulates Taleb's thinking on hidden risk in our hyper-connected modern world."
Atomic Habits: Tiny Changes, Remarkable Results

Big Mistakes: The Best Investors and Their Worst Investments
By: Michael Batnick
"While most books focus on all the success of particular investors, this easy read focuses instead on the biggest mistakes and lessons learned financial legends like Warren Buffett, Jack Bogle, and John Meynard Keynes."
"I remember watching Annie play in the World Series of Poker years ago, so was intrigued by her take on the topic. This book introduced me to resulting bias - sometimes good decisions have bad outcomes and vice versa - learn to judge not on outcome alone but the decision process that leads you there."
