Countless financial self-help books are written and published every year. But only a few make such a deep impact on the readers seeking long-term wealth solutions.
FOOPS, by Manoj Arora, is one of them because it focuses on highlighting the financial mistakes people make.
The author didn’t force to teach readers ways to make more money, rather educated how to avoid such mistakes.
The tagline of the book reveals well what it offers. It offers an insight into the 30 common errors we make for the pursuit of wealth creation. This book is full of financial wisdom and gradually uncovers the mistakes we all need to avoid. Each chapter is an eye-opener and teaches something new that can help boost our financial growth.
This book covers all the segments of financial management, be it saving, spending, and so on. It is an effective guide for optimizing money usage and helps us to plan our finances in a completely different light irrespective of our age.
The author has followed a unique writing style and uses stories, examples, key learnings, etc. It helps the readers understand different concepts. It reiterates simple facts like a penny saved is a penny earned and also that the real power of knowledge lies in its execution.
The book then beautifully sums up the most common mistakes we make. It derails our financial growth significantly. The author ensured that the book made the readers aware of the mistakes. He also inspires them to take action and rectify them.
Who Should Read It
The book is a must-read for anyone and everyone keen on understanding what they should not do while ensuring their financial growth. It is also a good read for individuals who have made some financial mistakes and want to get assured that it is never too late to recover from these mistakes.
Despite the high level of financial literacy and even with the best intentions, we are prone to making many common mistakes while planning our wealth. It is where this book can prove to be a game-changer and help us to rectify these mistakes and prepare for a financially secure future. I give the book a rating of 4.5/5.
Honestly, it deserves a rating of 5/5. But, this .5 I deducted because, what as a student of finance, I believe for a non-accounts/finance student, it may be difficult to understand many sections of the book.
