Product Description

Review

“We all know that despite our best-laid plans, crap happens! Preet wants you to know how to protect yourself so that, when it does, you have options. This book has a simple, straight-forward message about building a strong personal foundation instead of the ‘sexy’ investment stuff no one can ever put into practise because they don't have the money to take it to that next level. Five simple rules. That's all. Follow them.” - Gail Vaz-Oxlade, TV host and bestselling author of Money Rules and Debt-Free Forever

“Preet is one of the best. He out and out gets it. He's truly passionate about helping Canadians to handle their money wisely. As importantly, he has the knowledge and communication skills to do it.” - David Chilton, author of the best selling books The Wealthy Barber and The Wealthy Barber Returns and the new Dragon on CBC's The Dragon's Den.

“Managing money isn’t hard. But you can be confused, or paralyzed, by all the conflicting information. Preet Banerjee helps you sort through the spin and find the truth about keeping your finances on track. He acts as a trusted friend who talks in terms you can understand without talking down to you.” - Ellen Roseman, personal finance columnist at the Toronto Star

“Just the totally in-your-face talking-to that Canadians need to improve their financial health. Stop making excuses and read this no-nonsense book.” - Rob Carrick, Personal Finance Columnist, The Globe and Mail

“Banerjee focuses on five basic principles of personal finance that will benefit not just the average financial illiterate but even supposedly sophisticated investors who are guilty of ‘overthinking’ their portfolios. In other words, when it comes to money, most of us need to learn to walk before trying to run.” - Jonathan Chevreau, editor of MoneySense and author of Findependence Day

“The simple, straightforward advice that you can use immediately and will benefit you for a lifetime. Preet has extracted the complexity from finances and we are left with a usable tome that can change lives. Well done Preet.” - Tom Hamza, President, Investor Education Fund

Personal finance can be an intimidating topic, but it doesn’t have to be. With the hundreds of books out there, where is a reader to start? Some people would rather get a root canal than assess their financial situation. And while improving personal finances is one of the most common New Year’s Resolutions, by mid-January many have already given up on their holiday credit card statement. It’s these excuses author and Globe and Mail personal finance columnist Preet Banerjee skewers in his new book, Stop Over-Thinking Your Money.

Banerjee provides five simple rules to follow towards financial success. You’ll note investing isn’t one of them – why should you worry about investing, when you don’t have any money to invest? With household debt at record levels and personal savings rates at paltry levels, Canadians clearly aren’t getting the message. Banerjee’s rules are easy to grasp and actionable – you’ll achieve an “easy a” in personal finance in no time.

If you’re looking for a book to help turn your finances around, Banerjee’s is a must-read – it will help you improve your finances one simple step at a time.

I've read dozens of personal finance books over the last several years with the goal of getting my family and I in the best financial shape possible. I was at the point where I thought I knew everything and there was nothing else to be learned, but then I began reading this book, and after reading the first chapter I can honestly say that the book was worth every penny for the first chapter alone! Preet discusses some important topics in the first chapter that I had never seen in any other personal finance book. I've read many books that talk about life insurance and the necessity of it and then they go on to explain term versus whole life, but Preet takes it a step further and explains some very important issues such as underwriting for life insurance policies and the importance of knowing when the underwriting takes place. Preet also has some great tips on how to save big when renewing a life insurance policy. That's just an example, the book is full of helpful and useful tips on every important topic of personal finance!

Stop Over Thinking Your Money is straight to the point, extremely informative, easy to understand, and touches on everything you need to know to get all your finances in order. I would highly recommend this book to everyone, from beginners who are just starting to think about their finances, to those who may have set aside their financial plans for a few years and need to refresh themselves and re-look at their financial plans, to those who think they already know it all. :) Preet's writing style also makes this book entertaining and fun to read!

And one last thing, when Preet says in his book that you can email him with any questions about any financial topic, he isn't kidding; his passion for the subject of personal finance and for helping others shows in his thoughtful, informative replies.

I would highly recommend this book.

Good read and good fundamental principals. Not that I know anything near Preet does, but I am a bit confused why he did not support Index funds more versus mutual funds. Either way, his teachings are easy to understand and he did a good job covering insurance.

Personal finance gets equated with investing and budgeting. Yes both are important, but there's more. This book reminds us that we get most of the results by getting the basics right — once we know what they are.

Preet shares five simple rules for success with money.
1. Disaster-proof your life
2. Spend less than you earn
3. Aggressively pay down high-interest debt
4. Read the fineprint
5. Delay consumption

These rules may seem "obvious" and you've probably heard variants before. Even so, the rules are sound and require discipline to follow. The stories help in understanding and remembering the lessons.

The first rule gets ignored often. Disaster-proofing your life isn't glamorous but essential. We need disability insurance to replace our income if poor health prevents us from working and life insurance to provide for our families if we die. We know this but do we have adequate protection in place?

This book is easy to read. It's valuable whether you're learning the basics or an expert looking for a fresh perspective. You may get reminded or jarred into changing your money habits.
