In case you didn’t know, April is financial literacy month. I know, that as a lawyer, you are well read in areas of the law. And likely well read in a few other areas too, but you might have missed the memo about personal finance books.

As someone who had read a good few personal finance books, I wanted to share my favorites. Especially, the ones which I thought were best for those of us with a shit ton of student loan debt.

Unfortunately, some personal finance books just seem to gloss over student loan debt, and I really didn’t find them that helpful. So I’d like to save you time and just give you the books I think will help.

  1. I’m curious what you thought was so great about the four hour workweek. I felt so much of the book was about outsourcing your work to India and that was only applicable to people who held positions that could do that.

    1. You’re definitely right, and I’m not really for outsourcing myself. But it just shifted the way in which I think about my work, things like being deliberate in doing specific tasks. Checking email and then closing it out to keep from being distracted. That sort of thing, it helped in shifting my mindset to work for myself, which is now what I’m doing, though I definitely work way more than four hours a week.
