The Barefoot Investor: The Only Money Guide You’ll Ever Need – Scott Pape
 

Scott’s ethos is one that I share: those that get into debt to maintain a façade of wealth and status by buying big McMansions and fancy cars will never truly be financially independent, and probably never really happy. 

Rich Dad Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki

“The lifelong monetary problems experienced by his poor dad pounded home the counterpoint communicated by his rich dad.”
