Audio Books by Top Financial Advisors

April 29, 2011

Who isn’t interested in making money?  All of us want to be financially independent and have a solid retirement fund in place by the time we stop working.  Even more, we would love to know how to manage money in our daily lives, build up a nest egg, make sound investments, and of course, strike it rich.  And while there are plenty of people out there who are happy to tell you what to do with your money, here are some tips you can really use from the top financial advisors on the market.

1.       The Laws of Money, The Lessons of Life: Keep What You Have and Create What You Deserve by Suze Orman.  The bubbly dynamo behind the Suze Orman Show is best known for providing sound financial advice to the average citizen.  In this audio book (her fifth) she offers up the laws of money so that you can learn to earn it and keep it.  You won’t find advice on which stocks to invest in or the best loan to finance your business.  What you will find is common sense guidelines that can help you to become prosperous no matter what financial endeavors you undertake.

2.       The Best Investment Advice I Ever Received: Priceless Wisdom from Warren Buffett, Jim Cramer, Suze Orman, Steve Forbes, and Dozens of Other Top Financial Experts by Liz Claman.  This compendium of financial advice covers a gamut of topics, but most of it will only be useful to beginners (since many who have a good handle on investing will have knowledge of the basics already).  But with over 60 contributors (including big names like Donald Trump, Lawrence Kudlow, and John C. Bogle in addition to those listed on the cover), it provides for an interesting listen that will definitely help those who are just starting to plan for their financial future.

3.       Jim Cramer’s Real Money: Sane Investing in an Insane World by James J. Cramer.  The pundit behind CNBC’s Mad Money (and half of the TV duo Kudlow & Cramer) offers up advice on how to build a successful investment portfolio based on a simplified version of the principles and practices that led to his own accomplishments in the financial arena.  He recommends that listeners educate themselves on the stocks they own, and fill their portfolio mainly with proven investments and just a small dose of higher risk speculations.  He encourages people to do it right by learning to do it themselves.

4.       The Automatic Millionaire: A Powerful One-Step Plan to Live and Finish Rich by David Bach.  The bent of this audio book by understated financial advisor Bach is to take a common sense approach to investments that will leave you well prepared for retirement.  The basis of his recommendations is something he calls the “tortoise approach”, which requires investors to automate contributions to their retirement accounts in order to build wealth.  He talks about the benefits of compound interest, accelerated mortgage payments, debt consolidation, and emergency funds, amongst other things.

5.       Millionaire by Thirty: The Quickest Path to Early Financial Independence by Douglas R. Andrew, Emron Andrew, and Aaron Andrew.  Douglas is the real financial brain here (the other two authors are his sons) and he is best known for taking the view that “sprinting” is better than “jogging” when it comes to investing.  He endorses some brilliant notions, such as early real estate investments, sound budgeting, and using life insurance instead of a 401K or Roth IRA as a way to build tax-free income.  Although his ideas are viewed by many as radical, they have the potential to make you a millionaire by the age of thirty.
