We have decided to divide the books we want to recommend into three categories: First we will start with volumes that deal with the theme of money and wealth, to approach the economic disciplines and distract you from the idea that “finance is too difficult a subject”; then we will move on to the more technical books, very useful even if you want to pursue a career as a financial consultant.
Finally, we will recommend some digital resources and e-books always concerning financial education: it seems that, in the period of the lockdown, part of the Italian population has approached digital literature, putting aside paper volumes.
