Publisher's Summary

We work hard to earn our money. But regardless of how much we earn, the money worry never goes away. Bills, rent, EMIs, medical costs, vacations, kids' education and, somewhere at the back of the head, the niggling thought about being under-prepared for our own retirement. 

Wouldn't it be wonderful if our money worked for us just as we work hard for it? What if we had a proven system to identify dud investment schemes? What if could just plug seamlessly into a simple, jargon-free plan to get more value out of our money, and have a super good life today? 

India's favourite financial planner, Monika Halan, offers you a feet-on-the-ground system to build financial security. Not a get-rich-quick guide, this book helps you build a smart system to live your dream life, rather than stay worried about the right investment or perfect insurance. Unlike many personal finance books, Let's Talk Money is written specifically for you, keeping the Indian context in mind.

Good book for beginners.

If you are new to managing your personal finance then this would be a good book to begin with. Managing personal finance is a work in progress and requires continued learning. Not a single book can make you a master of personal finance. If you already know fairly about various financial products then this one may offer a very little incremental value. I find some useful information in almost every book. This book also gave me an idea on health insurance.

Important for All

This book is very important for all alike. People usually do not use the earned money well and end-up wasting/losing them and unable to generate the required income from it. We need to be organised as said in the book. I also happen to be in Finance stream and therefore disagree on some information/matters mentioned by the author. Maybe the same can be modified if thought suitable by author in next edition. Otherwise,a good read.

Does not play for no reason

Does not play at all. You cannot listen to the book in one shot. I played a few chapters earlier. Now after a few days, cannot play the book at all

Great book about investing in the Indian context

The book is really good for understanding investing in the Indian context and also details the many pitfalls in the Indian financial markets to be avoided on the path to financial freedom.

Initiating financial conversation interestingly !

Be it the relatable anecdotes or making complicated financial jargons simple and understandable, the book made me think about finance. It talks about the money both about things to do and not to do. Covers absolute essential knowledge necessary for an average middle class indian! Great narration as well.

Simple book but awesome for a layman

It was ok as I found it basic. But it also gave me some insight. But for a layman,it is an excellent read. Just go for it,author and narrator are fabulous. It seems as if the narrator has written this book. Five stars for the efforts and narrating her story by the author.

Great read for beginners - Specific to India

Great read for someone who is looking to decrypt the financial jargons and setting up a simple financial plan at the onset of their financial journey. The book will not teach you where to invest but rather how to invest. Loved the analogies used.
