Book:

Why Didn't They Teach Me This in School? By Cary Siegal. Unlike many of the personal money management books out there, this book is quick, easily digested, and focussed more on the qualitative side of personal money management. The principles are not from a textbook! Rather, they are practical teachings learned by Cary as he navigated through his financial life. Many are unorthodox in order to be memorable and provoke deeper thought by the reader.
