Publisher's Summary

A story that will unravel the secrets of the rich.  

"This is a very good book on managing personal finance. It gives clear principles to follow, which enable individuals to accumulate wealth by investing his or her income properly." (Sitaram Jindal, chairman and managing director, Jindal Aluminium Ltd.)

Have you ever wondered why some people get rich easily while others struggle financially all their lives? Is the difference because of their educational qualifications or their choice of jobs, business or investments? Is it that luck has favoured them selectively while bypassing the vast majority of people? Is it that they have special skills and are far more intelligent than others?  

The shocking answer is: none of the above!  

In his maiden novel, Abhishek Kumar reveals the timeless wisdom of wealth creation and accumulation and shows how anybody - no matter where they stand in life at this time - can become a millionaire. The rules provided in this book are not a get-rich-quick formula, but they do guide the listener to financial independence, which can be achieved on nothing more than an average salary. Through fictional conversations between two friends - Vinay, the financial wizard, and Ajay, his college mate - you will learn exactly what has been stopping you from becoming rich and how you can change yourself to live the life you always dreamt of - a life of wealth, abundance and financial freedom.

Not professional

The content is so so. The book teaches you the following, using the story of an IT professional.
1. Stop overspending
2. Invest regularly
3. Invest through a pvt ltd company, to save tax

The story is boring, the narration is more so. All the advise innthe book is given using sentences like "Remember! Slow amd steady wins the race!". Most of the conversation is narrated in a very excited voice. Which is painful for the ears.

Good for young aged, career starters

Great book on personal finance

One can relate to real life experience. Although it's based on a finance topic, the story telling is just awesome!

Great advice woven into terrible strylinr

My advice to people listening to this is to keep listening even if you hate it for the first 2-3 hours. Real advice comes towards the end of the book. Before that, it is all airy, wishy washy stuff, commonly labelled as mindset. I have heard the mindset argument a 1000 times. I buy books for the specifics, which comes much later, and isn't specific enough. I already know I need a "rich" mindset to be rich, just like I need a "fit" mindset to be fit and "tall" mindset to be tall. The examples and narration is cringe worthy. Someone, who is in the exact same situation and hasn't been exposed to content like this might like it. Others might keep waiting for the juicy specifics. Example: will advice to make a part of your investments in stocks but will not teach you anything more. Another example: his school time football coach happens to be a financial wizard, his college time friend happens to know everything about personal finance.
Having said that, there is true wisdom in this book. Its just that the wisdom has been spoilt by the author's attempt to weave the wisdom in to a story. Ramit sethi's book as well as "the richest man in Babylon" truly shines in this department. The former gives undiluted wisdom while the later knows how to make the wisdom palatable with a great storyline.
