If you are debt free and have mastered earning and saving more money then you  probably feel ready to start investing.

Making it to the investing stage of your financial journey is very exciting! But getting started can also be scary too.

Here are 4 investing books for beginners to help take some of the guess work out of what you need to do to devise an investment plan that will work for you.

Each of the books take a different approach to investing so reading all of them is recommended to get a well-rounded view on the types of approaches out there and the theories behind each of them.

 1. The Bogleheads’ Guide to Investing, by Taylor Larimore and Mel Lindauer

Author’s Description: This witty and wonderful book offers contrarian advice that provides the first step on the road to investment success, illustrating how relying on typical “common sense” promoted by Wall Street is destined to leave you poorer. This updated edition includes new information on backdoor Roth IRAs and ETFs as mainstream buy and hold investments, estate taxes and gifting, plus changes to the laws regarding Traditional and Roth IRAs, and 401k and 403b retirement plans.

2. The Intelligent Investor by, Benjamin Graham

Author’s Description: The greatest investment advisor of the twentieth century, Benjamin Graham, taught and inspired people worldwide. Graham’s philosophy of “value investing” — which shields investors from substantial error and teaches them to develop long-term strategies — has made The Intelligent Investor the stock market bible ever since its original publication in 1949.

3. The Great American Dividend Machine by, Bill Spetrino

Author’s Description: Bill Spetrino was just an ordinary accountant more than 20 years ago when he discovered the best investment secret ever.

Bill calls his secret “the dividend machine” — and he has been sharing his secrets with hundreds of thousands of investors who have subscribed to his popular Dividend Machine newsletter, rated by Hulbert Digest as the #1 low risk investment letter.

But many readers asked Bill to write a book about his secret and how ordinary investors can become millionaires just like him.

Bill did just that.

4. Rich Dad’s Guide To Investing by, Robert Kiyosaki

Author’s Description: Investing means different things to different people… and there is a huge difference between passive investing and becoming an active, engaged investor. Rich Dad’s Guide to Investing, one of the three core titles in the Rich Dad Series, covers the basic rules of investing, how to reduce your investment risk, how to convert your earned income into passive income… plus Rich Dad’s 10 Investor Controls.
