Hi,I would say the most basic book you could read on money management and where to start is The Wealthy Barber’ by Michael Chilton. It reads like a story and is thoerfere easy to follow.Next, I’d agree with the source below and recommend Robert Kyiosaki’s book, Rich Dad Poor Dad.’It is a great book that teaches you how to think differently about money than the average Joe. It will teach you how the wealthy think.My personal advice, from all of these and other books, is:Invest a minimum of 10% of gross, but aim for 25% for long term savings.Invest 10% of gross for short term savings like down payment, car, trip, etc.Invest 10% of gross to an emergency fundSpend no more than 25% on debts of all kind, including your mortgage.Spend no more than 20% on entertainment and clothing, etc. (if you want more, earn more)Give 10% to charity or churchAlso, it is important to plan a good budget and maintain it with discipline.There is a good source for free personal budgets tools in various blogs and sites. We have one as well.
