End of Spring Book Giveaway

aaron_image1One of the benefits of having a personal finance site is that often times book publishers and authors gift us with their wonderful finance-related books. The downside to that is we cannot possibly read them all (nor keep em all).

So, we thought we’d do a little late-spring cleaning and give them a new home! We’d love to send them to some of our faithful readers as a thank you for participating in our little community. 

To be entered to win a book listed below – all you have to do is leave a comment sharing what your favorite personal finance book is AND/OR letting us know which of the following you’d like to read.

We will randomly draw a name for each of the books listed. Comments will be closed just before midnight CST this Friday (the 20th). To learn more about each book (or to purchase one yourself) click on the book covers below. Sorry, US residents only are eligible to win.

The Wealth Cure: Putting Money in its Place
Hill Harper
WINNER: MAGGIE
"In his second book for adults, the perennial New York Times bestselling author helps readers discover how to put money in its place and use wealth-building as a tool for joy and fulfillment. Hill Harper is uniquely poised to guide readers through tough times and offers bestselling advice for reaping the rewards of a truly happy life. With The Wealth Cure, he does more than that: He presents a revolutionary new definition of wealth; motivating readers to not only build financial security but to achieve wealth in every aspect of their lives."
Millionaire Teacher
Andrew Hallam
WINNER: KIM
"The nine rules of wealth you should have learned in school (but probably didn't). As a high school teacher, Hallam is aware of what kind of personal finance education you probably received in school. While you were memorizing the names of dead presidents, battling with trigonometry and laboring over a periodic table of elements, you were probably getting short-changed on the basics of money". Hallam makes it up to you with this helpful, easy-to-read book.
The Behavior Gap
Carl Richards
WINNER: PETER
"Why do we lose money? It's easy to blame the economy or the financial markets-but the real trouble lies in the decisions we make. As a financial planner, Richards grew frustrated watching people he cared about make the same mistakes over and over. They were letting emotion get in the way of smart financial decisions." He called this phenomenon, the "behavior gap".
Generation Earn
Kimberly Palmer
WINNER: ANNE
"As a young professional today, you are part of a generation with greater earning power and more advanced degrees than preceding ones—along with a fresh, holistic outlook on financial success. Yes, you might have taken out more debt than previous generations, but that doesn’t mean you’re a slacker living off credit cards and takeout as media pundits would have people believe."
Living Large for the Long Haul: Real Stories of American's Who Saved, Lost and Saved Again!
Clark Howard
WINNER: CHUCK
"Americans from all walks of life are still feeling the roller-coaster effects of the Great Recession. For many, home values are still too low and unemployment is still too high. Others have prospered despite the ups and downs. In Clark Howard’s Living Large for the Long Haul, the renowned broadcaster examines our new paradigm through the eyes of those whose financial portfolios have beaten the odds, and those whose economic situation has gone off course."
Rich Dad, Poor Dad
Robert Kiyosaki
WINNER: HEATHER
"Rich Dad Poor Dad, the #1 Personal Finance book of all time, tells the story of Robert Kiyosaki and his two dads—his real father and the father of his best friend, his rich dad—and the ways in which both men shaped his thoughts about money and investing."
How Much Do I Need to Retire?
Todd Tresidder
WINNER: KRISS
"It seems so simple, doesn’t it?

Plug a few numbers into a retirement calculator and presto! You have an accurate answer for how much money you need to retire.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t work that way. The conventional approach used by experts to determine how much money you need to retire is fundamentally flawed. The worst part is you won’t even know it until it’s too late."
The Veteran's Money Book
Michel Lashawn Glass with Scott Scredon
WINNER: ARNELL
"Most of the 2.5 million men and women who were deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan received little education in personal finance during their service. Now these veterans are making the transition to civilian life with little knowledge of how to manage their money. In The Veteran's Money Book, Army veteran Mechel Glass tells how she came home from war 20 years ago and took control of her financial life…and how post-9/11 veterans can, too."

    I’d like to read Generation Earn. As a young professional (30) with a child on the way, I’m more interested in my generation’s behavor when it comes to finances.

  2. Darcy says:

    I’d be interested in The Wealth Cure: Putting Money in its Place. We currently have our savings in a regular savings account, while we know there are probably better places it could be.

    I’m currently working on Rich Dad Poor Dad, but I’d definitely like to read Generation Earn. As a 23 year old engineer fresh out of college (who bought a car AND a house within the last two years!) there should be a LOT for me to learn from this book!

    Andrew Hallam

  7. Kristen Rush says:

    I love love love Millionaire Teacher. Andrew Hallam makes the whole investment nightmare simple and sensible (and he even responds if you write!), but I’d like to read “How Much Money do I Need to Retire” so I can, well, plan!

  8. Jennifer says:

    I would like to read “The Wealth Cure: Putting Money in its Place”. Wealth is shaped by more than financial status; it involves our attitudes, mindset and behaviors. I enjoy reading books that touch on this and it sounds like this book does just that.

  9. Heather says:

    I would love Millionaire Teacher or Rich Dad, Poor Dad as books for myself to read and to then share with my family and friends

  10. Betsy Scott says:

    I have to admit that I haven’t read a personal finance book so I don’t have one to share. I have however read the Bible which gives us a lot of wisdom for our personal finances. :)

  11. Pam B says:

    I’d love to read The Behavior Gap. Maybe then we could stop doing the same dumb things over & over again with our money.

  12. Julie Porthouse says:

    I would like to have rich dad poor daddy back in my collection because I gave away my first one to someone who I thought needed it more than I did.

    I am interested in The Wealth Cure: Putting Money in its Place by Hill Harper

  15. Andrew Elizondo says:

    My favorite personal finance books are Dave Ramsey’s “Total Money Makeover” and Tom Stanley’s “Millionaire Next Door”. Great books that help you rethink what money means in your life.

    I would like to read “Millionaire Teacher” if I ever get the chance.

  17. Maggie says:

    Napoleon Hill’s “Think and Grow Rich”. I would like to read “The Millionaire Teacher” and “The Wealth Cure: Putting Money in its Place”. I think discussions about financial health and understanding how money works are vitally important topics in families.

  18. Chuck says:

    I’d like to read something by Clark Howard… I don’t always agree with him but find nuggets once in a while!

  19. Anne Burner says:

    Would love to read Kimberly Palmer’s GENERATION EARN. Recently read her THE ECONOMY OF YOU and would appreciate the continuation.

  20. Arnell says:

    My favorite personal finance book is Thinking Fast and Slow by Daniel Kanheman. It’s more of a behavioral economics/psychology book that looks at not only at the financial decisions we make but how we make decisions in general. We are more susceptible to advertising and our environment than we ever thought. I would love the opportunity to win anyone one of these fine books except rich dad poor dad, because I’ve already read that one. By the way I really enjoy your blog.

  21. petra says:

    I’d like to read Rich Dad Poor Dad. To learn why it’s the #1 personal finance book of all time is intriguing.

  22. Naomi @ Rising Net Worth says:

    I’d be most interested in the Milllionaire Teacher. Nearly thirty I’m just starting to get an understanding about finances. Just imagine what 10 extra years of knowledge under my belt could have helped me achieve (or avoid)!

  23. Cameron says:

    Some financial books that I have read and enjoyed much are…
    The millionaire next door- give some good examples of different lifestyles and how I should model my financial life.
    Total money makeover- this book spurred my wife and I to become debt free and start creating financial independence.

    Book above that interests me most is- Clark Howard’s living large for the long haul. I do pay attention to his blog and insight. Would be interested to learn more about what he says.

  24. Tricia Dirksmeier says:

    I would like to read the Millionaire Teacher. I am always looking for ways to be money savvy. It’s important for me to then share this information to my children.

  25. Wouldnt mind reading millionaire teacher by Hallman!

    My forvite book is a random walk down wall street. Yes its quite long but I love how candid it is. So many gems in there.

  26. Loretta Patterson says:

    I am currently reading, ” Girl, Get Your Credit Straight” and would like to read “The Wealth Cure By Hill Harper…

  27. Linda Dotson says:

    I’d love to read The Wealth Cure by Hill Harper. I have read other books of his and he has some very astute observations on life. I’d be interested to see what he has to say about wealth and than be able to pass that information along to my young adult children and grandchildren. It’s never to late or too early to begin thinking and planning along those lines. And actually, the sooner the better!
