For inspiration and thinking outside the box, Rich Dad, Poor Dad was quite good.
And for a dose of practical reality, the book Millionaire Next Door was quite informative. In brief, it looks at the earning and spending habits of millionaires, as well as their relationship with money. What they find is that the typical millionaire doesn't act or think about money in the ways most of us would expect they do.

I actually prefer audio books for some of this stuff. The most recent one I bought is "The ABC's of Getting Out of Debt" by Garret Sutton (one of the Rich Dad books). Good information and the audio book format means that I can read and drive at the same time.
One of the most motivating and eye opening books that I have read is "Adventure Capitalist" by Jim Rogers. He basically drove a car around the world and looked for places to invest. He was not on a tourist mission, but talked to regular people and actually invested in some of the 116 countries that he drove through.
The reason that I like the Jim Rogers books is that it has a very unique perspective. This man travelled for three years around the world and reported what he saw. Not only that, he compared it to the trip he had taken on his motorcycle around the world and highlighted what was different and what stayed the same. I would recommend this book for all Americans to read. Most Americans have no idea what the rest of the world is like. Jim Rogers offers a unique perspective that is not tainted by journalism, government or politics. Jim gives his views on where many different countries stand as far as economic stability and progress are concerned. He documents where he has seen many of these other countries come from and where they are going as far as investment potential and economic prospects.

I got my copy for like 50 cents at goodwill. It made me re-evaluate some strategies and re-enforced others. It was probably the best investment I have ever made for the money and the couple of hours i spent reading it.
Actually it is a loaner book too. I give it out to everyone.
