The Richest Man in Babylon by George S. Classon
Do you have the soul of a free man or a slave? Are you willing to do what it takes to start your purse to fattening? And what is the benefit of working hard and saving money anyway? These simple fables share timeless wisdom about investment and personal growth; they’re as relevant today as they were in ancient Babylon. Best $10 I ever spent.

Millionaire Teacher by Andrew Hallam
Another 30 year old millionaire. This guy was a teacher, who learned about compound interest and decided to put it to work. He paid of his entire student debt within two years of graduating and had investments equal to one million dollars soon after that. His simple, no-nonsense style is appealing and his life story is inspiring.
Banker to the Poor by Muhammad Yunus
What are you going to do to make the world a better place? What mark are you going to leave? Muhammad Yunus has brought more people out of poverty than any individual I can think of except Bill Gates. He started Grameen bank which lends as little as 8c to people in desperate need. He started a social movement in Bangladesh that has spread all over the world. A very inspiring read, and he has many other titles which teach people how to build social business and how to combine capitalism and community to help society.
