Tony’s Suggested Readings as of 9/23/13


Over the years, I’ve learned that reading “new” information is helpful in determining and finding one’s true perspective on money and life. All of these books are books I have actually read. And while I must admit that I don’t always agree with everything written in any book, I trust you would agree that any of these books will help you in your journey to discover the truth about money and its proper application in the planning process.
Be WorryFree!


Note: The books suggested by Tony should be read and understood as “conceptual” in nature only. Tony does not necessarily agree nor endorse all information herein.
