1. "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill

Journalist Napoleon Hill researched more than 500 self-made millionaires, including Andrew Carnegie, Henry Ford, and Charles M. Schwab, before releasing this 1937 best-seller.

Hill's timeless personal fiance classic will help you understand that getting rich is more about mentality above anything else. In fact, he barely mentions the words "money," "wealth," or "finances." Rather, he explains the psychological barriers that hold many people back from building fortunes — and teaches you how to start thinking your way to success.

2. "Business Adventures" by John Brooks

Rich people tend to believe starting a business is the fastest way to make money. This read, endorsed by self-made billionaires Bill Gates and Warren Buffett, will teach you just how to do that ... but not the way a conventional business book does.

"Unlike a lot of today's business writers, Brooks didn't boil his work down into pat how-to lessons or simplistic explanations for success (How many times have you read that some company is taking off because they give their employees free lunch?)" Gates explains. "You won't find any listicles in his work. Brooks wrote long articles that frame an issue, explore it in depth, introduce a few compelling characters, and show how things went for them."

Don't let the 1969 publication date throw you off. While a lot has changed in the business world since the 1960's, the fundamentals of building a strong business have not, Gates writes, adding, "Brooks's deeper insights about business are just as relevant today as they were back then."

3. "The Little Book of Common Sense Investing" by John C. Bogle

One of the most effective ways to build wealth is to invest. At least, if you do it correctly.

Bogle, founder of the Vanguard Group and creator of the world's first index fund, details the simplest and most efficient investment strategy: Investing in low-cost index funds.

Legendary investor Warren Buffett also says that every investor, large and small, should pick up a copy.

4. "The Essays of Warren Buffett" by Warren Buffett and Lawrence A. Cunningham

If a blurb by Buffett doesn't entice you, get directly inside the billionaire's head with this collection of letters and notes written by the "Oracle of Omaha."

The 700+ page book offers a clearer picture of Buffett's philosophies on business, investing, and life.
