Audiobooks are awesome!
They’re books, except you can listen to them whenever you want. You’ve probably heard about Audible and maybe even Scribd, two platforms that make finding any audiobook you want a total breeze.
Audiobooks are awesome because they allow you to continue learning and engaging with captivating material at any time of day – while you’re commuting to work, doing meal prep for the week, or even while taking out your super stinky compost bin.
Here’s a collection of the best finance audiobooks, available immediately in audiobook form. These fantastic titles have shaped the lives of numerous wealthy individuals, inspiring them to take charge of their lives and finances.

Have you ever wondered what makes successful people tick? The authors of ‘The Millionaire Next Door’ did just that. They grouped people into groups based on their ability to accumulate wealth and then looked into what behaviors each group had in common.

His book will give you a powerful framework of common-sense investing principles.
If you want to read an investing audiobook, look no further than Peter Lynch’s ‘One Up On Wall Street’. Every investor has his own style, and Peter Lynch used his method to grow his Fidelity Magellan fund from $20 million to $14 billion.
His philosophy in a nutshell: invest in things you understand. After thorough research, Lynch would only invest in stocks and companies that he truly understood and whose products he believed in.
Robert Kiyosaki wrote this personal finance classic in 1997. It’s based on his childhood and tells the story of two fathers. One is highly educated, but financially incompetent – the poor dad. The other is more financially literate (the rich dad).
