    Book Recommendations 4th Dec 17 at 10:49 AM
    Hello all,

    I've just finished reading 'Rich Dad Poor Dad' by Robert Kiyosaki. It was an interesting read and would reccommend it. Relatively short book and keeps the reader's interest with tales of his childhood growing up.

    I'm looking for recommendations for other books which cover investing, passive income, how to start a business for passive income etc.

    There are hundreds of books out there and not sure where to start.

    Also any good websites for this?

    Thanks

    His other book, Cashflow Quadrant, is a good read. In fact, I found it better than Rich Dad, Poor Dad.

    RDPD was bit philosophical whereas CF book more hands on type.
    Happiness is buying an item and then not checking its price after a month to discover it was reduced further.

    If you choose index funds you can never outperform the market.
    If you choose managed funds there's a high probability you will underperform index funds.
