      Jeff, welcome to SA. How old? What income? I suggest reading threads on investing on this site. You'll see the same books recommended repeatedly depending on your specific circumstances. Your library likely has the recommended as e-books, just up to you to download.

        "Millionaire Teacher" by Andrew Hallam is a fairly recent one that is good. See if you can check it out from the library for free!

          it depends on whether or not you are ready to read up on the philosophy part, or the factual parts.

          philosophy helps when trying to got the perfect mindset, but you need a lot of facts also to build upon, so reading endless amounts of "HOW TO BECOME A MILLIONAIRE" etc books will get you nowhere unless you learn the craft.

          since you are here, i am guessing you want to learn about the actual craft, and i would suggest going to your local library and starting from the bottom up, and just learning the basics of economy.

          even youtube can be a good source of information when looking at the basics. but remember, whatever you read, always look for another source even if it is about a well studied and practiced field of economics. there are so many different viewpoints out there and it really is improtant to gather data from many sources to make any kind of investment decisions.
          investment is the art of making a calculated decision.

          anyways, i dont really have any good books to recommend at this point, because i believe the type of books called "investment for beginners" or "for dummies" are really simplifying what successful investments really require from the person.
