Though I was extremely fond of Mathematics, I never really understood finance or better say never tried to understand the subject. I always found finance as a complex subject and believed that it’s not my cup of tea. But the fact is whether you like it or not, you got to understand this complex subject and apply proper strategies to develop your finance to live your today while securing your future.
If you face the same complexities that I have with the subject of Finance then I would like to introduce you to the book called “Mad Money Journey – A Financial Adventure” by Mehrab Irani. The book guides you and helps you understand the importance of managing your finances properly. It takes you to a journey to all corners of the world to experience and learn financial management through the experience shared by different people from different professions and nationality.
So, what’s the book all about?
Now if you have read Mehrab Irani’s 1st book – 10 Commandments of Financial Freedom – then you will find that “Mad Money Journey” is actually an extension teaching these 10 commandments of Financial Freedom from life experiences. The book is a fiction yet the author has successfully drafted all the characters and their experiences brilliantly to make it look real. You might find similar people sharing same stories if you too go on such a Mad Money Journey to the farthest corners of the world.
Mad Money Journey is the story of Dr. John Pinto who in spite of being a successful and renowned doctor has experienced extreme financial set back out of wrong decisions. The book enfolds his journey around the world to understand the 10 commandments that can lead one to financial freedom following an advice from his long lost school buddy, Vijay Desai.
My review about the book
I have read the books like A Monk Who Sold His Ferrari by Robin Sharma and The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho and these books left a huge impact on my perspective about life. After reading these books, I became more eager to read fiction novels that comprises of an adventurous journey delivering important life lessons along the way. Mad Money Journey justifies that criteria for me.
I don’t believe in comparisons and wouldn’t compare the works of different authors. Mad Money Journey is a different book and takes you to a different journey while teaching you different lessons on how you can too achieve financial nirvana. Each lesson is described from the experience of various people from different destinations and the hardships they go through day after day without giving up. It guides you through the basics of financial planning with a letter for each destination.
Who should read this book?
Anyone who loves reading adventure theme novels that involves traveling, new experiences, alongside learning life lessons as you read then this book is for you. Don’t read it if you are looking for fantasy based stories with imaginary creatures or any cliché romantic stories as you may find this book utterly boring.
If you liked the books like The Alchemist and A Monk Who Sold His Ferrari then you will enjoy reading Mad Money Journey too.
Few Quotes from the book
The only thing in abundance in this world is money
In this world, everything has rules. Schools, offices, hospitals, courts and governments, all have rules, so why won’t money, the most important thing in this world, also be governed by rules?
And, finally, what is money? It is nothing but paper currency, and if you don’t know how to bear the current of it, then either it will burn you or it will burn itself.
