Jago Investor: Change your Relation with Money (English) (Hardcover) Price: Rs.424

A book that helps its readers re-organize their finances better, Jago Investor: Change Your Relation With Money is full of useful tips and strategies on money management and financial planning.


Summary Of The Book


Jago Investor: Change Your Relation with Money is a book that instructs readers on how to keep their personal finances in perfect order. The book aims to eliminate financial illiteracy, as the author believes that most people are very unfamiliar with the concept of money management, as schools and colleges don’t prepare students for the same. As a result, they take decisions that can boomerang and hit them back in the long run. Others get so lost in the myriad financial concepts that come with investing in insurance, mutual funds, or stocks that they simply give up.


The book emphasises on the importance of financial education, and the author writes the book from the perspective of a novice dabbling in investments, rather than a financial expert. He has also tried to steer clear of providing advice on various financial products that are available in the market. Rather, the author, Manish Chauhan, tries to bring about a change in the quality of financial thinking on the part of the reader.


In order to ensure that this is achieved, this 180-page book touches on topics as diverse as the creation of wealth, protecting one’s family against bad financial times, the importance of setting goals, and the dearly-held myths about the business of making money.


One of the highlights of the book is the focus laid on how to use information technology to organize personal finances. The author underlines the importance of managing documentation to prevent clutter and unnecessary confusion. The book has seven chapters, and these are: Burning the Jungle, Get Set Goal, Have You Protected Your Garden?, Bursting Your Myths About Money, Simplifying Your Financial Life, Change Your Relationship With Money, and 10 Things To Do To Make Your Financial Awesome.


The book tellingly makes the point that the financial world is rarely a stable one. Things change overnight, new products come in, old ones get tossed out, and the economy may dictate new financial plans. However, financial principles and strategies that help people keep their personal finances in order never really change.

Great book for beginners about personal finance

At the end of most chapters he has a quick review section he calls ??????Flashback Learning?????? and more importantly he outlines a 2 hour action plan. The 2 hour action plan is what the book is all about. Quit reading, talking and discussing, instead take some action in regards to your personal finances.

Some of the best bits of information from the book:

- page 90 ?????? ??????You can never get excellent returns with safety in the SHORT TERM; that can only happen in the long term??????
- page 128 ?????? he shows a flowchart that I think everyone should make because it visually shows w...

Overall the book is great for beginners and I would highly recommend it.

Deserves the name - Must have book on your personal library

Thanks to Manish for the book making it precise and wealth of information. As the name suggests it wakes up the "Investor" in you. Treat the book as work book in the first reading itself, reading it as novel won't help, even though it may ignite some thought.

In India many of us are pro savers, compared to other parts of world. The book helps us in organizing the savings in a professional and calculated way. The book talks in terms of achievable (SMART) goals. It clears some of old myths.

It would be even more helpful, if it would have been included some basics about various saving schemes, low-medium-high risk sectors, stocks, MF, etc... as an added material.

Gift the book to the person who started his career. Last but not least, the author emphasizes "Peace of mind and contentment" also as wealth.

Jago Investor- a must read for a young investor

In this book, Manish uses a simple language to explain personal financial management concepts to the common man. Using simple examples and narratives, he explains complex financial concepts and try to create awareness among public about the importance of personal financial management. In India we would have been thought a lot of things that are not useful in life , but we are not educated enough about personal finance management and we end up doing a lot of mistakes. A must read for people who are starting their career fresh out of college. If I would have read it 6-7 years back when I sta... ()

If I would have read it 6-7 years back when I started working I would have avoided so many mistakes that I committed in investing. Way to go Manish.

Disappointed, more of an Intro to Financial Planning

I was quite disappointed when I put the book down after reading it. Dont get me wrong, its nice book if "You are just beginning investing and want to know the very basics". Since its Manish and after getting so much value from his blogs, I was really disappointed at the depth of this book.

I mean, I do not expect detailed information but even basic depth is missing in this. His blog has more information and material than this book and I think its overpriced.

What I liked:
1. Easy approach to the subject
2. fluid language
3. Nothing much technical
4. Templates that he provided by sending an email to him
5. The charts, like the insurance you nee

What was wrong/missing:
1. No in-depth information on anything!!!!
2. Some basic advice on products people should be looking at like Accident Rider in insurance plans etc
3. No information on how to evaluate various investment avenues like MF, Stock etc

Who should buy:
You are absolutely new and want an overview to financial planning

Who should not buy:
1. You are fan and regular reader of his blogs
2. You already read good magazines like Outlook Money, MOney Life etc
3. You already know basics, and are looking for how to evaluate a product. For example, you have term insurance should you another insurance with critical illness rider or lets say you want some basic pointers on how to track MF
4. You read blogs or part of forums

I think Manish should clearly mention what top expect from his book so that his fans can make an informed decision. If it was any other author, I wouyld have given a 3 star, since its Manish (someone whom I respect), I am giving 1 star.

I would suggest skipping this book and getting Subra's book on 40 rs a day

Wish I had read it before.

Why didn't someone tell me these simple principles of saving and investment before? The best part of the book is that it is written by someone who calls himself a Student of Wealth rather than a Guru. And after reading the book I believe its lot better to learn from a Student, than a Guru.

One needs some courage to go through this book. It first shakes you up from your slumber (financial laziness), then squeezes off you, your mislearnings about saving and investment, usually a result of preaching by many learned financial experts (read-agents), and then sometimes it punches you on your nos...

One needs some courage to go through this book. It first shakes you up from your slumber (financial laziness), then squeezes off you, your mislearnings about saving and investment, usually a result of preaching by many learned financial experts (read-agents), and then sometimes it punches you on your nose making you realize you silly mistakes.

First I couldn't read it beyond a few pages with each page making me realize about the opportunities to create wealth I missed, how I allowed my common sense be be buried under greed,herd mentality, or simple laziness. However, with quivering hands I flipped through the pages, knowing fully well that I must not escape reading it to the end.

As you go through the book, you realize that the writer is here to give you an unbiased advice.

Do not expect this book to be something magical which will make you rich, it just gives some plain good advise on savings and investments, strengthens your own common sense and encourages you to take our own decisions in the right way and encourages you to ACT. Its not easy to create wealth, but reading and acting on this book sure is one of the ways.

An Excellent Book to Start Financial Planning With

The language of book is quite impressive and entices you to read on - particularly, the fables in between to derive the point, for example, the story of the king and the gardeners, et al.

The book showcases the importance of financial protection; intelligent investments through proper goal sett...

I was more than happy to have bought this book. I was a little late infact..
