When I was getting started, I used to read this book, How to Retire at 35. The whole premise of the book was that if you could save up $1 million and live like a student, you could retire. But you would have to have the discipline of saving. I believed heavily in that book. It was a big motivator for me.     source

This is the only investment book I have read that truly made sense. Bottom line is that you can take a measure of risk on the $5,000 you have to invest in an attempt to earn 10 percent in the stock market, while praying that it all doesn't disappear because someone bought too many yen derivatives. Or you can save 15 percent on the $5,000 a year you spend on replenishables, from toilet paper to cereal to who knows what, and put it in the bank on top of the original $5,000, earn an easy 5 percent, plus accrued interest, on the total and sleep very, very well at night.     source
