We all know that money makes the world go around, and if you truly want to lead a healthy, and successful life, money is a major component. Unfortunately,  a large group of  individuals in the US find it challenging to manage their finances. Although unfortunate, it’s understandable. Just seven states require schools to offer a stand-alone finance class and legislators in 25 states and the District of Columbia have just begun to introduce financial education bills this year. 

Additionally, according to data, about 62 percent of men are financially literate, compared with about 52 percent of women. Similarly, the data show that about 64 percent of adults living in high-income households are financially literate, compared to about 47 percent of adults living in low- income households.  

But, there’s light at the end of the tunnel. Tons of resources are available across various mediums, but there’s nothing like a good book. 

We’ve rounded up a list of personal finance books that will help you understand finance and whip your wallet into shape.
