The Wealthy Barber Returns by David Chilton has been one of our most popular non-fiction titles for at the library for close to a year now. It’s no surprise – books about personal finances, like many practical self-improvement books, are consistently sought after and those featuring the subjects of budgeting, investments and debt are especially popular around dreaded tax season. If you enjoyed the The Wealthy Barber and its sequel you may want to consider other trusted authors who write about financial security. For example, Gail Vaz-Oxlade’s Debt Free Forever, Never Too Late and It’s Your Money are very accessible and, like The Wealthy Barber, they are Canadian relevant. You may also want to pick up Jacks on Tax by Evelyn Jacks, which provides the reader with tips for filing taxes online. Finally, if you find yourself at any of our eight library branches across the County, grab yourself a free copy of the Your Personal Tax Planning Guide 2012-13. We’re here to help you with all of your information needs!
