After decades working as a Wall Street trader, investment adviser, and money expert for CBS, Jill Schlesinger reveals 13 costly mistakes you’re probably making right now with your money without even knowing it. Drawing on heartfelt personal stories (yes, money experts screw up, too), Schlesinger argues that it’s not lack of smarts that causes even the brightest, most accomplished people among us to behave like financial dumb-asses, but simple emotional blind spots.

This book, though written with American society in mind, holds good for just about every family and person living anywhere in the world. If listened carefully and acted upon, this audiobook will lay the foundation for a better financial well-being. In our struggle to get the financial freedom, we make a lot of mistakes both known and unknown. At least I made a couple of them (not having an emergency fund even though I knew about the concept and the retirement aspects).

I highly recommend this book if you want to set your financial affairs in order like buying any type of insurance, venturing into the world of stock market (shared some good dos and don'ts), planning for your retirement.

I gave 4 stars for performance and story because this isn't a fictional story per se but a self help book. Overall a book worth 5 star.

The very best thing about this book, according to me, is the performances by the narrators. I was literally blown away by their skills. I felt like I was present with the characters throughout their journey. The story is also good but for me, it was Sikandar and Rasika, who made this book more great!
