    You missed one of the great ones: Retirement Planning for the Utterly Confused by Paul Petillo.

    Evidently, his publisher doesn’t spend tons of money promoting like the other authors on your list but this one deserves a good look – especially now!

    I recommend the Boglehead guide to investing. Its a great explanation of various investment options.

  6. Ilyce Glink also has a number of great books in addition to her thrice-a-week column in over 120 newspapers.

    Her book “50 Simple Steps You Can Take to Disaster-Proof Your Finances” is a great quick read for the beginner. Her books on real estate are also great and several of them really cater to first-time buyers.

    Rich Dad’s Increase Your Financial IQ: Get Smarter with Your Money: Robert T. Kiyosaki: Books.


    Get Rich, Stay Rich, Pass It On, George Walper, Catherine McBreen.

    for some real books on wealth!
    And no they don’t give you the recipe for getting wealthy because there isn’t a recipe. I think the fact of a easily recognizable recipe is what makes most of the books on your list so popular.
