It’s been a while since I’ve done a book review on that blog. In fact, it’s been a long time since I’ve read a personal finance or investing book. But two weeks ago I saw that Think and Grow Rich, from Napoleon Hill, was at only 0.58$ on Amazon for Kindle. You can read my tips about finding cheap Kindle ebooks. I often saw it mentioned in best of lists on several blogs. So I thought it was a good bargain. So I bought it and read it and here is my review :)
This book is about self-improvement and personal development. It’s a very old book. It was written in 1937 by Napoleon Hill. It was written after the great depression.

Here is another book review about an investing book. This is the second book I read in my way to personal finance enlightenment: The Bogleheads Guide to Investing, by Taylor Larimore, Mel Lindauer and Michael LeBoeuf.
