FIRE book suggestions

Looking for books about investing for my millennial son who has developed an interest in FIRE after seeing how happy I am.

He has already read the Millionaire Teacher and is ready for something more advanced about investing.

And if I claim to be a wise man, it surely means that I don't know.

Here is the link to the Bogleheads reading list. The first item listed is Bernstein's free download, "If you can: How Millennials can get rich slowly". My personal favorite is Berstein's, "The Four Pillars of Investing".

ETA: While the download is only 16 pages, he includes supporting book recommendations within the text.

Thank you so much for the book suggestions. Ended up purchasing A Random Walk Down Wall Street, and my son loved it!! He said it was the perfect read to start his FIRE journey.

Any suggestions for a second book which might compliment what he has already learned?

Random Walk is a classic. I like “Why Bother With Bonds” by Rick Van Ness as a complement that is a gentle introduction to the murky (to me) bond market. It’s a quick read.
