Regardless if you’re caught in the rat race, or living comfortably with your finances in check, there is always room for improvement in life - including your finances.
Past experiences and current circumstances might motivate us to develop, but how do we get started? I’ve always been told that a dedicated mentor to teach you the ins and outs of life is a priceless resource. However, quality ones can’t just be bought off the shelf.

Here are 7 finance and investment books we are reading today.
