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.
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.
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.
