The Untethered Soul by Michael Singer

While it’s not specifically a book about money and investing, the Untethered Soul includes several valuable lessons on letting things go.  Delving into the question of who we are and what our identity means, this book will help you examine how you view yourself and the world, and whether you’ve become fixed in your views.

As many of the world’s greatest investors will tell you, learning to detach and being open to new views and ideas are crucial to investment success.



When you’re reading a lot of nonfiction books, it can be easy to get exhausted and need a break. If you’re feeling this way, try keeping an additional nonfiction book aside to scan when you need a rest from your current book. It might just open your eyes to a new idea, plus it will refresh you for when you’re ready to finish reading your current book.
