It won't give you any investing specifics, but you and your new members don't WANT any investing specifics. You don't care what some author thinks is a good investment, because you've already got your own plan ("to expand").
"Richest Man In Babylon" is short and interesting enough that your members will probably read it, which is going to be the key. People who are interested in finances, you don't need to teach them anything. People who AREN'T interested in finances, you're going to have a challenge getting them to read anything at all. So give them something that will get the basics into their heads with the least trouble you can manage.

I have lived by the advice within and have managed to weather every storm because of it including a very long period of unemployment. The only times I haven't usually end up very badly for me. It's his advice that allowed me to be the only 23 year old with 20,000 dollars in the bank about a decade back so I could afford to go on a 6 month vacation to hike the AT.
The information is the same thing he talks about for free on the radio show and he doesn't make any attempt to say otherwise on the show, but I bought it anyway and am glad I did. If you wanted to preview his advice, his show is on a lot of talk radio stations as well as I Heart Radio. Seriously good stuff.

I haven't seen his book but I imagine it's probably in accord. He focuses (at least on the radio) on practical finance and sensible choices.

In addition to that, I found reviews on both Amazon and elsewhere, and based on those, I chose to order used copies of Suze Orman's "The 9 Steps to Financial Freedom", 'Your Money or Your Life" by Vicki Robin, and "The Millionaire Next Door" by Thomas J. Stanley.
