Review on Goodreads
To being a complete alien to finance, the book surely clarified a lot that was going on in my mind. The book gives you a thorough knowledge of what is each mistake, how is it done? A lot of moments that would make you think ‘omg’, but a lot more that would help you to avoid making one.
The author lists down 30 mistakes that are committed commonly. The book is structured in a way that even someone who is new to the term finance can understand. So it makes things simple and precise.
Though it does not compromise on the quality of the language. There are no technical jargons concerning finance but will definitely make you understand whatever mistake is being discussed.
The book will help you from not letting you make mistakes which you are about to and make you aware of mistakes which you have already done and help you take actions to correct it.
Mistakes which found my interest:
Under estimating the power of compounding.
Getting swayed by the hype of NFOs and IPOs.
Auto renewing fixed deposits
Not prioritizing portfolio tracking.
The glossary also helps you with major terms which can aid in making you understand the common terms used.

Making financial mistakes are very common. Sometimes we don’t pay much attention to small details and they result in big issues. I think this book will solve that problem.
Wow this book has a unique subject. finance mistakes are common but not many people are well aware about it. would love to read this book to know more about it. thanks dear for sharing about this unique theme book.
I am a complete zero in finance planning and have committed many FOOPS. I think this would be a great book for me to brush up my knowledge.
Sometimes we don’t even realise the financial mistake unless it gives us a setback. This book looks like consolidated list of things we should not do. For a financial novice like me, this looks a perfect read.
The subject itself is so interesting. On the way in investment journey we make some you goof ups. This books sounds relevant read.
I’m not usually one to read financial books but this one seems really interesting. I especially like your detailed and in-depth review – good job!
