    One of my friends had recommended this book, "Rich Dad, Poor Dad (2000) by Robert Kiyosaki", it was very inspiring and I did give a serious thought on it after reading it. It's worth reading and everyone should read it to understand the basics of investment and how to be successful, the author, has penned down his experience in a wonderful manner.

    Will try to get my hands on other books as well as suggested by Mr. Partha.

    Good information. Generally, I depend more on financial advisers regarding my investments and other financial matters. Now with this thread, I am thinking that I will try to get at least one or two books from the above and try to understand the methods and means.
