Personal finance is a lot like physical fitness. In order to be in better shape, everyone knows they have to work out and eat well. A personal trainer delivers results, not by showing clients a new way to perform sit-ups, but rather by simply making sure the sit-ups get done. In Stop Over-Thinking Your Money!, Preet Banerjee explains the financial equivalents of what exercise and diet you need to know in order to be in top financial shape.

There are so many buzzwords in the world of money that most people’s heads spin, their eyes glaze over, or they tune out altogether. It can be overwhelming, and for many of us, it seems like there is just too much to know so we don’t get started on taking care of our money. The good news is that of all the information out there in the world of personal finance, at most you will only ever need to know about 20 percent of it. That small amount of knowledge is what will put you ahead of most Canadians.

In Stop Over-Thinking Your Money!, Banerjee explains in five simple rules how to think about money and focus on the 20 percent of what you really need to know to confidently take charge of your money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy read that's honest and straight forward.... The way finances should be! I took this book out from the library a few months ago and read it from front to back within a week. Preet's no nonsense honest approach to finances was a breath of fresh air and his occasional sarcasm and humour made an often tedious topic far more enjoyable. Highly recommend to students and young Canadians.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A really useful book on personal finance for canadians! I recently bought this book and found it to be an easy read. I read a lot of finance books and this is one of my favourites, up there with The Wealthy Barber and The Millionaire Teacher. It talks more about insurance (in an easy-to-understand way) and has a unique plan for saving compared to some of the others I've read. Most importantly, it was motivating- I opened up a new savings account after reading it!

Editorial Reviews

“We all know that despite our best-laid plans, crap happens! Preet wants you to know how to protect yourself so that, when it does, you have options. This book has a simple, straight-forward message about building a strong personal foundation instead of the ‘sexy’ investment stuff no one can ever put into practise because they don't have the money to take it to that next level. Five simple rules. That's all. Follow them.” - Gail Vaz-Oxlade, TV host and bestselling author of Money Rules and Debt-Free Forever“Preet is one of the best. He out and out gets it. He's truly passionate about helping Canadians to handle their money wisely. As importantly, he has the knowledge and communication skills to do it.” - David Chilton, author of the best selling books The Wealthy Barber and The Wealthy Barber Returns and the new Dragon on CBC's The Dragon's Den.“Managing money isn’t hard. But you can be confused, or paralyzed, by all the conflicting information. Preet Banerjee helps you sort through the spin and find the truth about keeping your finances on track. He acts as a trusted friend who talks in terms you can understand without talking down to you.” - Ellen Roseman, personal finance columnist at the Toronto Star“Just the totally in-your-face talking-to that Canadians need to improve their financial health. Stop making excuses and read this no-nonsense book.” - Rob Carrick, Personal Finance Columnist, The Globe and Mail“Banerjee focuses on five basic principles of personal finance that will benefit not just the average financial illiterate but even supposedly sophisticated investors who are guilty of ‘overthinking’ their portfolios. In other words, when it comes to money, most of us need to learn to walk before trying to run.” - Jonathan Chevreau, editor of MoneySense and author of Findependence Day“The simple, straightforward advice that you can use immediately and will benefit you for a lifetime. Preet has extracted the complexity from finances and we are left with a usable tome that can change lives. Well done Preet.” - Tom Hamza, President, Investor Education Fund
