Books on .Net Programming
Professional C# 7 and .Net Core 2.0
This one is a pretty good reference, sure some things change with the new versions of C# but not that much! I’ll update this link once I get a new version.
I admit that this one is not new, but I still learn things even in 2020 by reading it!
You might say this one is old and dusty but if you have a look inside you’ll see that not so much has changed in the challenges we face in today’s professional programming world. A must read if you want my opinion and like clean and organized code as much as I do.
Books on Financial Independence
The Simple Path to Wealth
I’ve read this book about 3 years ago and have recommended it to family as one of the easiest book to read to understand how to invest to reach financial independence. It’s simple and well written.
The Little Book of Common Sense Investing
The Only Way to Guarantee Your Fair Share of Stock Market Returns: this book goes into more details about how to invest and the major differences between passive index funds and actively managed mutual funds. If you’re more of a do-it-yourself type of investor, that’s the one to read. I’ve recommended it to my father because he has a big interest in everything finance related. Sometimes he’s the one keeping me on track!
Rich Data Poor Dad
I recommend this book by Robert Kiyosaki even if it’s not my personal favourite. The reason is it’s really useful to understand the concepts behind an asset and a liability, but I do not share his point of view on leverage. Also, I’m not entirely sure he’s on the same level as the average person in the working class. Nevertheless, it’s a good book to get you started especially if you want to run your own business.
Set for Life
This is not a bad book, it will give you good overview of everything financial independence related without going into too much details. If you want to start learning it might be the best choice!
Playing with FIRE
I’ve personally contributed to the Kickstarter on that project and was happy with the result! It shows a little insight on the darker side of financial independence and what it takes to get to this point, which is the main reason I think not so many people reach it in the first place. There is also a movie on Google Play store if you prefer to watch than read.
Early Retirement Extreme
Canada: Early Retirement Extreme: A Philosophical and Practical Guide to Financial Independence by Jacob Fisker
United States: Early Retirement Extreme: A Philosophical and Practical Guide to Financial Independence by Jacob Fisker
This one I find is a little bit over the top but still fun to read on how intense you can be to reach financial independence, I would recommend if you want “lighter” reading but still want to grasp the main concepts.
