Six (6) of the Best Real-Life Stories in Finance

Before I have learned to write simple notes and articles during my idle time, I was previously a voracious reader of any reading materials - textbooks, storybooks, magazines, pocketbooks, comics, even postcards and greeting cards.

Tonight, I have no writing assignments and I need a breather from analyzing and trying to understand some scripts I just installed. I spent the time communicating with friends, browsing and reading again then I found this interesting entry from CNN.


6 Best money memoirs
How would you rather learn about finance: from a dusty textbook, or a tale of towering egos and high-stakes gambling? Money Magazine picked out six of the best real-life stories. By David Futrelle, Money Magazine contributing writer

Mentioned in the article are 6 books of real-life stories from which we may be able to learn lessons on the different aspects of financial management.

  • The Age of Turbulenceby Alan Greenspan (2007) - best book about prospering in today's economy
  • Reminiscences of a Stock Operatorby Edwin Lefevre (1923) - best book about stock trading
  • American Suckerby David Denby (2004) - best book to read before taking a flier
  • The Autobiographyof Benjamin Franklin (1791) - best book about entrepreneurialism
  • Nickel and Dimed: On (not) Getting by in Americaby Barbara Ehrenreich (2001) - best book about earning money
  • Liar's Poker: Rising Through the Wreckage on Wall Streetby Michael Lewis (1989) - best book about bond trading:

Since I have not read any of these books, I would really love to get a copy of each book for myself. Do I need a coin to drop at the wishing well?
