This book tells us how to become more financially intelligent. This is a good read for people who have been working for quite a while and have not reached their financial goals.

"Wealth does not necessarily mean having millions and millions of pesos. Being wealthy simply means having the financial resources to supPort your chose lifestyle....
Wealth is really a condition where your present financial resources can support your lifestyle over a long period of time even if you do not work to generate income."

I liked how Francis Colayco wrote this book because he wrote it with subtlety, humility, honesty, realistically and most of all with practicality. This book is unlike those other books because this book actually teaches you things both in handling money and also how to deal with crises that are spurned by money. I like how he uses examples to illustrate and to give a more concrete example of the teaching that he tries to tell the reader. This book is unique from those other "How to get filthy ri ...more

It's a good read. The book motivated me first part and last part. I started reading the book since last year, when i got to the middle, i got too lazy to finish it. it's very informative and the numbers can really motivate. overall, colayco making an effort to spread financial awareness definitely helps big time. it's just gonna be up to the reader if he'll absorb it. Savings/investments are just few of the safe options that one must take advantage, be a priority to rather than investing on thin ...more
Best for the financially-illiterate like me. It brings how I spend my income and make my expenses into the right perspective. :)
very practical. i love how he explains and simplifies financial matters through great examples.

definitely a an eye opener!
It was not created to cater classes A and B; this is the reason it was 'unnecessarily' translated in Filipino, as one airhead emphasized. This was meant to educate people who works their asses off but saves nothing, the financial illiterate.

If you think you belong to at least class B or, luckily, the financial literate people, dont put that sour face of yours. This was never meant to be made for you. NNOO!!!

So stop being high and mighty there!
This was a good book. I finished it in one sitting because it was very engaging.
Glaring typos and grammatical errors. Topics in English are unnecessarily repeated in Filipino. The author rambled on several pages on concepts which could've been explained in a simple, concise manner, yet it still lacked depth and substance. Okay for people who does not have any background at all in personal finance, especially those who prefer it in Filipino. People with basic knowledge or took a course in finance, accounting, or management will be very, very disappointed.

Gives the best idea on how to make profit on your passive income. Will definitely use this as a guide for future investments. Hope Mr. Colayco will make a book focused on trading for beginners :)
