Basado en el principio de que los bienes que generan ingreso siempre dan mejores resultados que los trabajos tradicionales, Robert…Kiyosaki explica cómo pueden adquirirse dichos bienes para, eventualmente, olvidarse de trabajar. El libro #1 de finanzas personales. Con un estilo claro y ameno, este libro te pondrá en el camino directo al éxito financiero y así lograrás que el dinero trabaje para ti.Padre rico Padre pobre es el bestseller que revolucionó la forma de entender las finanzas personales. El autor y conferencista Robert Kiyosaki desarrolló una perspectiva económica única a partir de la exposición que tuvo a dos influencias: su propio padre, altamente educado pero muy inestable y el padre multimillonario, sin educación universitaria, de su mejor amigo.Los problemas monetarios que su Padre pobre experimentó toda la vida (con cheques mensuales muy respetables pero nunca suficientes) rompían con lo que le comunicaba su Padre rico: que la clase pobre y la clase media trabajan por dinero pero la clase alta, hace que el dinero trabaje para ellos. Kiyosaki presenta la filosofía detrás de esta relación excepcional con el dinero. Este libro aboga de manera convincente por el tipo de conocimiento financiero que nunca se enseña en las escuelas.Padre rico padre pobre lo ayudará a: -Derribar el mito de que usted necesita tener un ingreso elevado para hacerse rico. -Desafiar la creencia de que su casa es una inversión. -Mostrar a los padres por qué no confiar en el sistema escolar para la enseñanza de sus hijos acerca del dinero. -Definir de una vez y para siempre qué es una inversión y qué es una obligación.-Mostrar qué enseñar a los hijos acerca del dinero para su futuro éxito financiero. Lo que ha dicho la crítica: "Padre rico padre pobre es el punto de partida para quien quiera tomar el control de su futuro financiero." -USA Today

Accessible Strategies for New or Well-Established Investors Jonathan DeYoe invested a small sum in stocks at a young age —…and then watched his money grow. Now a financial adviser and longtime meditator, he understands that stress plagues many would-be investors, and he has seen countless people make investment decisions driven by fear and wishful thinking. That mindset leads to costly mistakes, such as chasing “hot” stocks, buying when prices are high and selling when low, and racking up transaction fees and taxes in the process. These mistakes are preventable by cultivating a state of nonjudgmental awareness and practicing mindfulness, which allows investors to see life from a larger perspective and make financial decisions according to their long-term goals. With simple, evidence-based methods that don’t rely on gimmicks or constant portfolio maintenance, Mindful Investing takes away the anxiety to help you reach financial prosperity and personal well-being.

Millionaire Women Next Door: The Many Journeys Of Successful American Businesswomen (Millionaire Set #3)
By Dr Thomas J. Stanley. 2005
The New York Times–bestselling author of The Millionaire Next Door reveals the spending and saving habits of financially successful women.…Millionaire Women Next Door presents a variety of groundbreaking concepts involving the personality, lifestyle, motives, beliefs, and spending habits of economically successful American businesswomen. Most of these women report being raised in nurturing family environments. They were trained not only to succeed financially but also to be generous in giving to noble causes. Stanley asks, &“How did these businesswomen become millionaires? They did it by doing more of the key activities and achieving better results than most of their male counterparts.&” Praise for Thomas J. Stanley&’s The Millionaire Mind &“A very good book that deserves to be well read.&” —The Wall Street Journal &“Worth every cent . . . It&’s an inspiration for anyone who has ever been told that he wasn&’t smart enough or good enough.&” —Associated Press &“A high IQ isn&’t necessarily an indicator of financial success . . . Stanley tells us that the typical millionaire had an average GPA and frugal spending habits—but good interpersonal skills.&” —Entertainment Weekly &“Ideas bigger than the next buck.&” —Orlando Sentinel
IF YOU KNEW WHAT I KNOW... Would you buy a municipal bond for the subways in New York City that&’s…rated AA-, or only A? Would you care what a bond is for as long, as it&’s a general obligation backed by the issuer&’s full faith, credit, and taxing power? Would you pay 109 for a bond, a premium of $90 for every $1,000 face value, knowing you&’re going to get back only $1,000 at the end??Would it be crazy to buy a 30-year bond at age 80? Would you read &“these bonds are not a debt of the state&” as a fair warning, Buyer Beware??Tax free municipal bonds. Would you buy them at all? STRAIGHT TALK FROM THE MAN WHO PUT MUNIS ON THE MAP FOR THE INDIVIDUAL INVESTOR. Would telling you the whole story about investing in municipal bonds, and making sure you know the risks involved, kill the sale? &“I&’ll take my chances,&” says Jim (Municipal Bonds Are My Babies) Lebenthal. For 45 years, Jim Lebenthal wrote and starred in the Lebenthal family&’s municipal bond business commercials - information nuggets that educated the public and turned munis into a household word, wherever his face and voice were seen and heard. Outraged by what Wall Street had done to the financial markets with reckless abandon, and Bernie Madoff with malice aforethought, Jim gives equal time in Lebenthal On Munis…Deciding, "Yes…" or "No!" to the Whys and Why Nots for investing in his "babies." "Balancing the heady appeal of tax exemption with the payment record of municipal bonds in the Depression and the volatility of resale prices during the inflation tortured '70s and '80s, isn&’t optional for a broker," says Lebenthal. "Full Disclosure is the law." In Lebenthal on Munis, Jim carries out that law, even if Full Disclosure means turning Jim and his babies, thumbs down. DECIDING, "YES…" OR "NO!"
By William D. Danko, Dr Thomas J. Stanley. 2010
How do the rich get rich? An updated edition of the &“remarkable&” New York Times bestseller, based on two decades…of research (The Washington Post). Most of the truly wealthy in the United States don&’t live in Beverly Hills or on Park Avenue. They live next door. America&’s wealthy seldom get that way through an inheritance or an advanced degree. They bargain-shop for used cars, raise children who don&’t realize how rich their families are, and reject a lifestyle of flashy exhibitionism and competitive spending. In fact, the glamorous people many of us think of as &“rich&” are actually a tiny minority of America&’s truly wealthy citizens—and behave quite differently than the majority. At the time of its first publication, The Millionaire Next Door was a groundbreaking examination of America&’s rich—exposing for the first time the seven common qualities that appear over and over among this exclusive demographic. This edition includes a new foreword by Dr. Thomas J. Stanley—updating the original content in the context of the financial crash and the twenty-first century. &“Their surprising results reveal fundamental qualities of this group that are diametrically opposed to today&’s earn-and-consume culture.&” —Library Journal
By Dr Thomas J. Stanley. 2011
The New York Times bestseller that gives &“readers with an entrepreneurial turn of mind . . . road maps on how millionaires found…their niches&” (USA Today). The author of the blockbuster bestseller The Millionaire Next Door: The Surprising Secrets of America&’s Wealthy shows how self-made millionaires have surmounted shortcomings such as average intelligence by carefully choosing their careers, taking calculated risks, and living balanced lifestyles while maintaining their integrity. Dr. Thomas J. Stanley also builds on his research from The Millionaire Next Door and takes us further into the psyche of the American millionaire. Stanley focuses in on the top one percent of households in America and tells us the motor behind the engine; what makes them tick. His findings on how these families reached such financial success are based on in-depth surveys and interviews with more than thirteen hundred millionaires. &“A very good book that deserves to be well read.&” —The Wall Street Journal &“Worth every cent . . . It&’s an inspiration for anyone who has ever been told that he wasn&’t smart enough or good enough.&” —Associated Press &“A high IQ isn&’t necessarily an indicator of financial success . . . Stanley tells us that the typical millionaire had an average GPA and frugal spending habits—but good interpersonal skills.&” —Entertainment Weekly &“Ideas bigger than the next buck.&” —Orlando Sentinel
&“Concentrating on personal finance don&’ts is a clever idea . . . an intriguing reminder of what not to do when investing your…money.&” —The New York Times Brilliant investors and top businesspeople make mistakes, too—very expensive ones. Drawing on his twenty-plus years of experience at some of Wall Street&’s most prestigious firms, as well as original research and interviews with these legendary investors, Stephen Weiss offers fascinating narrative accounts of their billion-dollar blunders. Here, such prominent figures as Kirk Kerkorian, Bill Ackman, David Bonderman, Aubrey McClendon, and Leon Cooperman discuss the most significant trade or investment that went against them, the magnitude of the loss, its effect on their businesses—and on their personal lives. The book skillfully examines the causal relationship between the quirks of each investor&’s personality and the mistakes they have committed—as well as the lessons learned. While some investors made errors of judgment, others made errors of perception. But no matter how many zeros were attached to these particular losses, investors at any level can profit from the wisdom gained—and avoid the same missteps. &“When a great investor flubs it, everyone can learn a lesson. With that in mind, author Stephen Weiss delves into the biggest mistakes of such Wall Street luminaries as Bill Ackman, Leon Cooperman and Richard Pzena.&” —Barron&’s

By Anthony Scaramucci. 2010
The investment expert shows how a better understanding of people, capital, and culture can enrich one&’s life financially as well…as spiritually. It is time to say goodbye to Gordon Gekko, the rogue character famously portrayed by Michael Douglas in the classic movie Wall Street. In Goodbye Gordon Gekko, author Anthony Scaramucci explores opportunities for leading a rich life in a difficult, radically changed economy. Believing that the financial crisis was caused by a nation of Gekko-wannabes tripped up by status anxiety and egocentric tendencies, he argues that you can be happy and financially profitable as long as you stay true to yourself and stick to your values and principles. Scaramucci offers hope, urging you to pass through the happily-ever-after portal so that you can find your fortune and all that is fortunate. With years of experience at Goldman Sachs, and having co-founded two successful alternative investment management companies, the author provides a behind-the-scenes view of life on Wall Street—the wins and the losses, the rights and the wrongs, the successes and the failures, the good mentors and the difficult colleagues. Through these entertaining and insightful stories, featuring advice from a diverse cast of characters ranging from Li Ka-shing to John Weinberg to his Italian nana, Scaramucci identifies the temptations and roadblocks that accompany our professional ambitions and personal choices, revealing the rules for leading a profitable and fortunate life. What does this mean in practical terms? As Scaramucci shows, it means ridding yourself of egotistical tendencies and developing the self-awareness to bounce back from failure. It means building a circle of competence made of those you trust, mentoring and celebrating others, and giving back to your community and country, all the while targeting success. It means seeing capitalism as an art and businesses as creations and vocations, not simply as levers to feeding your ego. Goodbye Gordon Gekko provides a road map to help people achieve true wealth defined beyond a checking account. Praise for Goodbye Gordon Gekko&“A fun, easy read, with sage advice.&” —Oliver Stone, three-time Academy Award Winner; Director, Wall Street and Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps&“A truly insightful read. It introduces us to a moral compass on Wall Street—finding riches by direction of a true north as opposed to insidious Gekko-style greed.&” —Josh Brolin, Academy Award Nominee; Actor, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps; Active Trader&“Scaramucci is a unique combination of great entrepreneur and savvy Wall Streeter. His perspective on all things business is invaluable and here for all to read.&” —David Faber, Anchor, CNBC
