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.

Straightforward and well explained, Banerjee offers five practical and applicable rules to successfully manage your money and personal finances.
1. Disaster-proof your life
2. Spend less than you earn

4. Read the fine print
5. Delay consumption

A quick read, with sensible recommendations. The book is divided into two parts - Part one focuses on the most important aspects (insurance, wills, saving, debt, and budgeting) and Part two focuses on investing, including how to select a financial advisor. His advice about budgeting being easier the more you do it is at least one thing I learned from this book.
