    Ok so here I am a 25 year old dropout!

    Running a couple of businesses now and understanding the game more and more.

    However, I want to be more financially literate, as MJ mentions in both books I believe.

    I've Googled some courses or online classes but having a hard time finding one that seems valuable without me wasting time and money.

    Does anyone have good recommendations on online courses, books, podcasts on the topic?

    Which area do you want to focus on? Personal finances, investing, reading financial statements, etc?

    What would you recommend for mid-level (non-intro) understanding of taxes?

    I think he's asking about the part where the numbers and dollars signs are next to the words ;)

    If you already have a base understanding, I would actually go almost right to the source. The IRS puts out publications on a wide-ranging list of topics, which provide detail that many people rely on their accountant for.
    As far as courses, I unfortunately have no experience. I learned on the job, so I haven't had a chance to check any out. If you have some you're looking at, I'm more than happy to read through a syllabus/outline to let you know if I think it would be beneficial.

    I'm sure there's a joke in there somewhere, but my dry accounting brain just isn't connecting the dots today...

    I just meant that rather than looking for one particular specialized question about an area of accounting, it seemed that he was asking for guidance about just about everything involved in how you read the numbers.
