Every once in a while someone will ask me if I know of any resources that would allow them to learn what they need to know about personal finances. There are many books out there and I try to read at least one industry specific book per month on this topic.
I use Audible to listen to audiobooks while I'm out scouting properties. I'll also download the occasional ebook to read on my handheld device.
Mint.edu is a great resource for ebooks. Their website has a section which allows you to download, for free, 30 different ebooks encompassing several areas of personal finance. I suggest you check it out.
