7 Money Mantras for a Richer Life : How to Live Well with the Money You Have by Michelle Singletary

Dream BIG!: A Roadmap for Facing Life's Challenges and Creating the Life You Deserve by Deborah Rosado Shaw

What these two books have in common are that they are both written by women of color who came from difficult circumstances yet became sucessful businesswomen. 7 Money Mantras begins:

The best financial planner I've ever known was my grandmother. Big Mama raised me, my two sisters, and my two brothers on a salary that never reached more than $13,000 a year.
In Rich Dad, Poor Dad style, Ms. Singletary relates the seven "mantras" she learned from her grandmother. The second half of the book covers the basics of saving, spending, and investing your money. She touches on debt, budgeting, estate planning, caring for a relative with a disability, financial planning, and so forth. No one topic gets in-depth coverage, but she adequately summarizes what you need to know.

Dream Big! is more inspirational than informational. Ms. Rosado Shaw has had a wild ride. Raised in the South Bronx, she attended (and flunked out of) Wellesley, yet went on to be a sucessful entrepreneur and public speaker.
