Book Review: Financial Freedom A Guide to Achieving Lifelong Wealth and Security

Financial Freedom A Guide to Achieving Lifelong Wealth and SecurityThe book “Financial Freedom A Guide to Achieving Lifelong Wealth and Security” is written by Mr Reuben Advani. The book is easy to read and has a total of not more than 150 pages. Personally, I felt that the book title is over exaggerated.

However, it is actually a personal finance book whereby the author explains in high level some financial jargon (E.g. Assets, Liabilities, Equity, Debt etc).

The author shares in this book how to plan a personal monthly budget, things to consider when financing a home, buying a car and financing an education.
