UCAS Personal Statement

I'm planning to apply for Accounting and Finance. Since we need to quote a book or some sort of literature in our personal statement, I thought I would quote something from or talk about the book "Psychology of Money". Is this a suitable book? Or, should I talk about something else? I also thought of writing about the Sri Lankan financial crisis, but I wasn't really sure if that would relate to accounting. (what do you think?)

Don't quote me on this, but I feel like that might be more economics than finance

Have a look at the Unis you're applying for, as some may list books for preliminary reading. I know LSE and Cambridge do this, and I'm sure other Universities will as well.
