Rating: 9/10 If you're young and live in the US, it's a 10/10. Great starter book on personal finance. Teaches a clever system to automate saving and guilt free spending.

It's sequenced as a six-weeks-to-do-list so you take action that gets you 85% there, with options for optimizing later (becoming more of an expert).
Rating: 10/10.
