Jagoinvestor Book with CNBC – Network 18

POSTED BY Jagoinvestor ON January 4, 2012 COMMENTS (293)

I am happy to break the news today about my first upcoming book on personal finance called “Jago Investor” (The name of the book is changed now and its now called 16 Personal Finance Principles Every Investor Should Know) with CNBC Network 18. It has been a long time I was waiting for this to be out in the market, but finally I got a go ahead to break the news to my blog readers. No, the book is not in talks – It’s going to hit the market (soon) this month itself. So you just have to wait for couple of more days to grab your copy.


Jagoinvestor book


16 personal finance principles every investor should know  Financial Planning Book in India - Personal Finance Book in India
Pre order Book

Some time in early 2010

I got a mail from CNBC sometime in 2010 about authoring a book on personal finance and I happily agreed. Since then I worked on the book, I was in Bangalore that time working with YAHOO (yea guys – I was an IT guy) and then I moved to Pune to start on my own. I worked on the book in last 1.5 yrs and now it’s complete.

The Vision of Jagoinvestor Book

It was a tough task to select what the book should be all about – but I was sure that it should not be a typical book . It should not be a book which does not leave an impact on someone who reads it. I wanted to make sure that a person who reads the book really introspects about his financial life. I wanted the book to make a person shake a bit after reading it. So the book had to awake a person reading it and make him feel “Now, I should do something for my financial life”. With that vision I have written the book. It’s about the principles of personal finance and how a person should think in different areas of financial life. I will it becomes one of the best personal finance book in India.

The book is not about financial products and how they work – NO! You can get it anywhere. I have talked about very important things which really matter. It works on your thinking level and makes you think in a more quality way rather than just increasing your knowledge. I have tried my best to keep the language simple along with numerous examples and images/tables to convey the concept. I have written this book considering myself as the reader. There is another version of this book which comes with a CD which contains 13 financial calculators and 2-3 templates.

Book Chapters

Now let me introduce you to the book contents in crisp and short points.

Chapter 1 This chapter talks about early investing and how you lose a lot of wealth just because you don’t start your wealth creation on time. I have shown numerous examples/graphs which will give a clear idea on how powerful early investing can be.
Chapter 2 The second chapter talks about the protection of your family (Life Insurance). It also shows you right way of finding the required cover and how much your current cover will be able to sustain your loved ones. While this might look like “products talk” It’s actually not!.
Chapter 3 The 3rd chapter is all about Goals setting and how your should look at it . How goal based/linked investing can do better for you and improve your financial life style.
Chapter 4 This chapter clears the myth people have about equity and debt in general. It shows you reasoning/proof about how equity is not risky in long-term and how debt is extremely risky in long-term.
Chapter 5 This chapter talks mostly on the psychological aspects of your financial thinking and how your decisions are shaped up because of the way you think about money. This chapter has been contributed mostly by Nandish and he has really done amazing work.
Chapter 6 This chapter talks about how you can make your financial life more simple and robust using some simple rearrangements. This is mostly overlooked by indian investors who focus a lot on returns only.
Chapter 7 This chapter ends the book and it talks about 10 commandants you should incorporate in your financial life to make sure you become a better investor.

Thanks to you

If I had to thank only one person who made this book a success, it would be you. From past 4 yrs you have bombarded me with your doubts/questions and this has only made me learn and learn. This book does not belong to me alone its creation of this whole community and each one of you who is part of this blog from several years now. It did not take shape just in a day – it happened over years – slowly and gradually. I would like to say Thanks to you all for believing in jagoinvestor and really making it happen. We have a lot of things coming up in 2012 and our commitment is to give you guys more and more with each passing day.

    Hi Manish,

    First of all, THANK YOU for all the efforts!!

    I just started reading your first book. I am having question on that.
    You have given example of investing Rs 3400 per month to generate 5 crores in 35 years., assuming a 12% return. Could you please tell me, which are the schemes or investments which will give min 12% returns for all 35 years?

    I am planning to buy your other books as well.
    Again Thanks,

    1. There cant be any . The assumption is that you are invested in equity class for long term . Now you need to reconsider your options in equity class . I mean you need to keep reviewing your mutual funds , ETF’s every 1-2 yrs and change them if required !

      1. Amol says:

        Thanks Manish

  3. Pratik Bid says:

    Hi Manish,

    I read your articles. They are very informative. I am thinking of buying this book. It will help me understand my finances better as I have just started my career (second year in profession..)

    Thank you for all the efforts!

      1. Pratik Bid says:

        Hi Manish,

        Bought the book.. :)..it has some typos here and there, but its a very good read 🙂

  4. Laxmikant says:

    Hi Manish,
    Congrats on your book,hope it’s the 1st in the many lined up for people in r country 2know that they need 2pull up their socks in their own financial security where r politicians/govt will not do much.
    Im in the process of reading your book and i think you have been slightly unfair to the older generation,you have stressed start early but i think there would be lots of ideas/suggestions for people who have missed the bus.
    Hope by the time,i finish the book,it dz not seem like this book is dedicated only to saving/investing/becoming rich for the now generation.

    1. Preeta

      Good to hear that .. The first chapter is mainly regarding the investing early , but I am sure other chapters will help you a lot

      1. TS Ashok says:


        I bought and gifted to my wife.. As preetha told, i also missed to start early..Anyway atlease i wokeup now..

        1. Good to hear that Ashok 🙂 . Would love to read her reviews on flipkart soon !

  9. Shashi says:

    Hey Manish,
    Yup I understand your point . I am very much clear about my goals .I made the mistake by taking LIC Policies(it took only 5 mins to buy those policies). Later when i was looking for another policy for my child(i became father on 14th feb 2012), I looked on net happened to visit ur blogs. Now next step for me are following .
    1. Buying a term insurance
    2.Discontinue LIC Policy , i paid first premium in january this year and discontinuing means won’t get a single penny still i think it worth if i invest somewhere else where i can get more returns.
    3.Putting some investment in Mutual funds and equity. But i want to gain knowledge about mutual/Equity before putting the investment as i don’t have much knowledge on this.and i don’t want to put money blindly now
    4.I have a surplus of rs one lakh which i can invest, I want to invest as follows:
    Equity: 40000
    Term insurance and Health insurance:15000
    (since my goals are for long term (20 years and above)

    Let me know what you think about my plans and give suggestion you have.
    Thanks and Regards,

    1. Shashi

      I think all your steps are clearly defined and I guess you should move that way . Best of luck. Your decision to first learn and only then move ahead with investments is very very good .


  10. Shashi says:

    Hey Manish,
    I got this book via flip kart. I have started reading this book .Read first 3 chapters. No doubt every one who is new to investment world like me should read this book .Few of feedbacks(Negative) i want to share with you .I hope you won’t mind
    1. Page6: Example 3: Rs 3400 investment required per month to generate 5 crores in 35 years., assuming a 12% return. I am not sure how you calculated this.

    2. I understand how much u favour term insurance and this is right and Now i believe every one should take adequate term insurance
    But when you gave example ,i don’t know why u hide the real worth of money and under estimate one side . My point is this is not actual comparison (i am not against the idea of taking term plan ) .
    see page 49:
    Here you said , a 30 yera old guy pay Premium around 7000 , after 30 yrs his money is 2.1Lac ,but if i go with first chapter where u have shown how to grow ur money at certain percentage it would be much higher.
    3. I hope readers want to see some of the plans suggestion at the end of each chapter.I mean give some plans which u think are good in market ,and let the reader think which one suits them .
    Hope to hear from you.Later I will share u the mistake which i have already done.(only came to know after reading ur blog). and will need suggestion .

    Thanks for being there and posting /writing eye opening articles for readers


    1. Shashi

      Thanks for your feedback , Let me answer them one by one.

      1. This is one of the mistakes which you have pointed out and some others found out . Despite 2 rounds of checkings this mistake has happened , but the over all picture it wants to present is intact . In this particular example , the rate of interest is 15% annual for long term, not 12% , thats the mistake which has happened and its rectified in all the next issues, few hundred initial copies have this mistake . The formula used is a standard formula used in financial planning which is for regular payments of some amount for a particular period . You can also use excel for it . If you need exact details of calculation let me know.

      2. I think you have misunderstood this part , This page talks about the money you get back from term insurance company in case of “return of premium term plan”, which is not compounded, so a company would just say “get back your premiums” , so you pay 7,000 for 30 yrs and thats exactly = 7k * 30 = 2.1 lacs . There is no compounding here .. Even in standard products which are “return of premium term plans” , the money is just returned to you without any interest .

      3. Yes , I can understand that, but the book is suppose to live for years and I didnt wanted to put something in the book which is very very dynamic , I could have added some plans and premiums , but those things keep chaning every month and someone who will read this book after 1 yr, for them those suggestions would be totally wrong , plus term insurance suggestions cant be made generic , its dependent on trust, convinience and other factors and that selection has to be done by individual only after understanding all the points . Thats the reason for not including it .

      If you want you can use our forum and comments section to decide on a term plan for your self .

      I hope you are clear about the explaination given by me, Incase you are not clear about it , please write back and I would be happy to clarify ! 🙂

      Good day

  13. Arudra Kumar says:

    Hey Manish,


    Was away from (y)our website for a while due to work related constraints. I am back now and saw that I am running way behind. Sooo many topics on the site to catchup with. Will be in sync in a weeks time though. 🙂

    When is the book hitting the stands. Desparate to buy and read it. Hope & wish your book will be listed in the Best Sellers list. All the very best to you. Any plans of you and your team visiting Hyderabad for the book promotion?

    Warm regards,

    1. Arudra

      Thanks .. will update when the book is available for selling .. Also no plans as of now for hydrabad .. will let you know once I come there

    Great Manish, Congratulations!!!!, trust it will provide more inputs on personal finance, which many people are not aware of.

    1. Surendra

      Thanks a lot 🙂 ..


  17. Prithvi says:

    Hey congrats Manish! I am always a big fan of you and Jago investor. I wish you will reach to masses with this book…Looking forward to grab a copy of the book.

  18. bemoneyaware says:

    Congratulations. Hope to see it in the bestseller list! I hope CNBC-18 keeps it reasonably priced (their Happionaire series is priced approximately at Rs 499).
    Such personal finance books are needed. Unlike the school where we have a curriculum and know that we know to begin from (ABC, DoReMe) for financial literacy we don’t have much clue or help or guidance except our experiences.
    Googling throws up books which are bestsellers in US(mostly). Though the general philosophy is the same we need books with desi flavor. by the Indian authors. I had covered some books for adults and young adults in my post Personal Finance Books For Adults And Young Adults
    Hope to add yours to the list 🙂

    1. Bemoneyaware

      Thanks 🙂 .. I also wish its in best seller list 🙂

  19. rashmi acharya says:

    Congrats !! May your book become the tremendous success in the market.

    I have always been inspired by your blog. Keep up good work.

    Warm Regards,
    Mahen Rathod

    1. Thanks Mahen 🙂


  21. Gaurav Kumar says:

    Hearty Congratulations Manish!
    I am sure a book on financial planning written in your characteristic simple language and supported with the amazing and lucid examples that you come up with is sure to become popular.

    I am not sure if it will be available outright in smaller cities like mine. So, I really hope the book will also be available through online bookstores like flipkart. I have really come to admire their services.

    And I envy those who are going to receive a signed copy.
    Best wishes,

    Dear Manish Heartiest Congratualtions for Your Effort,

    What you have done over the years is much more than what most of the so called Financial Experts have not been able to do in last 20 years. All are interested in Finance(their own), but don’t care for Customer’s Finance.

    All of us will acknowledge that Mr. Manish is Very Successful as his success is His Vast Contribution He has made for All of us over the Years.

    All the Best And Thanks as always.

    1. Raj

  46. Navin Maheshwari says:

    Hi Manish,

    This is really good news. You have been in process of releasing this book with CNBC-Network 18 quite long time, finally it went through. Wish you all the best. Once its gets popularity, make sure its published in other lanquages to get benefit for non-jago investor reader or alteast remote areas where no net connection.

    The good part of this blog site is simplicity of language. Almost all articles are nicely written so far and well discussed. I am looking forward to same simplicity in your book. Best of luck once again!!


    1. Navin

      Thanks a lot 🙂 . We will publish it in more languages for sure once it becomes popular .. thats the first milestone to complete


  47. TS Ashok says:

    Congratulatoins Manish. Wish You a Huge Success.

    1. TS Ashok

      Thanks 🙂

  48. Deivasigamani says:

    Many congratulations..I Wish you would write an article on following the dreams. Many of the readers are having dreams on their own but are not having the courage to push themselves due to some reasons. I believe personal finance is one of the major constraint and thinking like what if i fail there…how can i support my family etc.. puts a major barrier on most of the dreams…


    1. Deiva

      Yea .. thats a big issue 🙂 . will try to write something on that soon


      1. Deivasigamani says:

        Thanks Manish..Looking forward to both your book and your post about my comment…

      1. Mithlesh says:

        I still think it should be an excellent read being an avid reader of your blog :)-

        1. Mithlesh

          Will update you once its there in market

  56. rajivahuja says:

    Waiting eagarly for the book.

  57. Krish says:

    Dear Manish,

    First congratulations that your book would be in the market soon. Ever since your article on training to new Civil Services batch, I could gauge on the fact that you are trying to diversify or exploring the revenue generation options through the expertise you have developed over years with lot of research on various investment instruments.

    This book announcement seems to have another diversification that you have persued. Nevertheless there is no doubt that these consumes time, energy and resources. That explains the quality of articles in recent times.

    Once a platform of masterpiece articles, the quality had taken a hit in recent times and more often investment community did not take away any message. One such indicator is number ofcomments and introspection would certainly tells that the numbers are dropped. Myself an avid reader of your blog once upon a time and was always looking for an article every week, never missed a chance to share our experience by posting comment is no longer active on your blog.

    While am not sure of your next projects, I am hopeful to read the wonderful articles once again on your blog. Clearly to me, this forum needs an attention.

    1. Krish

      Thanks a lot for your wishes . Would love to know why you feel the quality of articles are coming down .. There is a mixed reaction on this .. what you might feel is not good , is extremelly useful for others .. But i would definately like to know which all articles in past you considered as high quality and which all articles (recently) you felt was not that quality .

      There are different kind of readers with different expectations , so catering to all of them is quite a challange .. Would love to hear more from you . You can email me at manish at jagoinvestor dot com also .


  58. Gaurav says:

    Congrats Manish and Nandish. Way to go guys. Keep up the good work.

  61. Haha .. All I need is that he spends .001% of his money in my book promotion . Thats a tiny little wish I have …


  62. Jayesh Trivedi says:

    Hi Manish,
    Congratulation to you ! I am very much delighted by this news. I have changed my life through this website and recommended many of my friends and relatives. They all are happy. I am a big fan of you and always looking for your new articles. I feel like that its our Jagoinvestor readers’ achievement.

  89. P Kameswara Rao says:

    Hearty congratulations and all the best for your efforts. It is indeed a good idea to contribute to the society through your book and i am sure it would definitely help everybody. Incidentally I want to make a request– I have gone through many articles at various web sites but i have not found any good article or suggestion for training retired government servants. Generally govt. servants are blessed because they get pension for self and also for family after the govt. servant, they are entitled for medical facilities and most of them would have availed housing loan from their dept. and would be owning a shelter by the time they would retire. Every retiring govt. servant would get substantial amount at the time of retirement and most of us do not know how to utilize the same. Can you think of some ways and educate us. By this you would be doing a great service to the senior citizens of the country and you would be blessed. I once again want to stress that I am referring to people already retired or likely to retire in a months time. ( You may visualize the situation of BAGHBAN movie)
    Thanks and good wishes.

    1. Nandish says:

      We as a team will do something in this front. I am clearly getting your concerns. Even after having money some may not be experiencing true freedom in life.

    2. P Kameshwara

      We will try to make sure we live upto your expectations and soon try to write something on this

  91. TWINKLE says:


    1. Thansk Twinkle ..


  92. Mansoor says:

    Congratulations Manish. I wish your hard work gets paid well. Looking forward to find one soon.

    Ideally, every personal finance book should come with a CD/DVD with workbooks, formulas, calculations etc because there are hundreds of books, if not thousands, that talk about chapters like how to set goals, how to invest in various instruments etc. But hardly any book has details like “if in today’s time you need 10 lacs for education, how will you arrive at the cost of education for your kid when he/she is 20 years. And how much you need to save every month, provided your returns are about 9% post tax, etc etc”. Again, this will not be for everyone because it will only give you a mathematical details, a proper CFP will give direction. It’s just my thoughts.
    Good luck.

    1. Mansoor

      What you are asking is not that tought to calculate .. Also ther will be a CD version of the book too whch has calculators which will be able to help a person calculate those things which you are asking .
