My journey to becoming a dividend growth investor was a very long and arduous one. I have been following the stock market for years, but didn’t really gain an understanding of it, until a few years ago. The following books helped me to learn about investing from people who are practicing it and are successful at it. I then used the lessons from these books to craft my own dividend growth strategy, that is unique to my investment goals and objectives of living off dividends in retirement. The books that shaped me as an investor include ( in no particular order):
