A book that has developed a cult-like following in the Financial Independence (FI/FIRE) community, “The Simple Path to Wealth: Your road map to financial independence and a rich, free life by J L Collins,” is our book of the month.

The initial concept for this guide to wealth came as Collins wrote a series of letters to his daughter sharing some of the lessons he had learned over the years about finances and investing. A comment made by his daughter made him rethink his strategy.

“But Dad,” she once said, “I know money is important. I just don’t want to spend my life thinking about it.”

There are many more important things in life than money, but it is important. If you're looking for a way to win in your personal finances plus have time for the more important things in life, pull up a chair and enjoy this easy to read guide to creating wealth on autopilot!
