Title- The personal MBA

Author- Joshua Kaufman

Pages- 430

Genre- self finance, self help

Publisher- Penguin books

My Rating- 4/5


There are so many self help books on personal finance. Few are centered around a single concept. Few are holistic and try to cover many basic principles. This is one of holistic works.

It has such breadth that it needs multiple readings to absorb useful things.

It is a collection of insights.
Ideas simplified, segregated, wrapped with a familiar cozy stories. Which are easy to understand and ingest like a dessert at the end of the day.

Book is Full of wriggling ideas which appear on every page.

It has a lot of Rolf dobelli in it who has written book on hidden biases. ( Art of thinking clearly).

Thete is a lot of indights from famous business books.
There is financial jargon simplified like balance sheet, overhead, simulation, friction reduction, prototyping, leverage, funding, sustainability, debt and many more things that always scared you.

Definitely everything here is accumulated wisdom from many books author has read.

Book is written in very interesting way. Rudicules professional MBA degree.

Divided into sections like dealing with yourself, dealing with others, getting better, improving systems.

There is a lot of psychology on these pages.
Few things you might have already read; but there is a heap of fresh new stuff to learn.

Thing that is not good is a bit of repetition of concepts which reappear and get entangled with each other so frequently.

An idea may appear in multiple chapters in new forms.

These books with entertaining narrative and information will always remain in business.

This is a book that should be more famous.

It hurts to see Mark Msnson’s books selling more.

This one is much more useful than those F books.
