At the outset let me thank you for sending me your new book “Personal Finance Lessons From The ICU”. It is a book that I will treasure for life and recommend to each and every one to read.
I have always believed in a simple rule in life – “Nothing happens till it does not happen to you”. I believe this was so aptly applicable to your thought process when you wrote this brilliant book. The simplicity of the narration is what is the highlight of your writing. You are talking about fundamental financial knowhow and etiquettes without using a single financial jargon. This is why this book can be read and understood by everyone. Some of the points you have made have been an eye-opener for me. Being a single bread earner myself, the responsibility of taking care of my health is top of that list. The fact that your wife needs to have access to your investments and cash is something which I am sure many will start implementing after reading your book. You have hit a sixer with your statement “It is better to be scolded by a doctor in his clinic than in the ICU”. This has certainly left a permanent mark in me and I have already started looking at myself to ensure that I take the correct remedies to avoid being in the ICU in both the important aspects of life- Health and Wealth!
