What are the best books on how to FIRE myself

What are your opinions on the best FIRE books? I have seen several on here, but was wondering what others recommend.

If you need inspiration, read "Your money or your life" By Dominguez. I read the original and it opened my eyes.

I liked Work Less, Live More By Bob Clyatt. He focusses more on the how to.

I needed to read the actual papers on SWR (Bengen, Guyton etc) as well as a number of books on investing (Malkiel, Swedroe, Ellis, Bernstein) before I felt comfortable with my plan.

All the best.

For financial preparation, my personal favorites are those on the Bogleheads' book list. I haven't read any concerning the psychological adjustment but I am sure others will provide information about the Zelinski book and so on.
5/17/2018: Retired a second time, this time from my volunteer Admin duties. After 10 years of being on the team, and 40,000+ posts, the time just seemed right. It has been such fun to work with all of our Mods and Admins and I plan to stick around as a regular member.

The Millionaire Next Door, Stop Acting Rich and Your Money or Your Life are a few of my favorites.
