A DRDO Sr Scientist : The latest book fan

From the Rat Race to Financial Freedom was recently reviewed by Dr. T. V. Karthikeyan, a Senior Scientist at the Defense Research Development Organization (DRDO), and needless to say that he became the latest addition to the ever increasing list of fans of this book.

Producing some of the excerpts of his review. 

In case you are keen to read all details, you can go the below review page:
Dr. Karthik’s Review on 
  • The author Manoj Arora has very successfully brought out a very handy, useful and a ready reckoner on the road to financial freedom.  
  • With liberal doses of philosophy, myth busters on wealth creation tools, taxes savings the writer has provided practical examples from his own personal life as well.
  • Through this openness and transparency he has illustrated how a few very simple disciplined practices can put the layman common reader on the highway of financial and life well being 
  • Numerous quotations and sayings at the commencement of each of the eight chapters facilitate good food for thought to all classes of readers. These are good to ponder and ruminate over even after a long time after completion of the book.  
  • Time and money are two parameters for a successful life. Larger perspectives of life should be in the mind in the long run. Financial independence also springs from the true happiness of “giving” rather than “taking”. 
  • Several punching words at the beginning and end of each chapter are life worthy. 
  • A subtle message succinctly brought out is the difference between financial freedom and displaying social status and wealth.  
  • A personalized guidance facilitated by the author in furnishing his personal email ID and his website should be acknowledged and appreciated by the readers. 
  • Knowledge removes fear. Understand the principles of wealth accumulation and live by them. A “To do” approach is provided by the author. 
  • Financial freedom gives you added ability to pursue hobbies and other interests of life.  Life becomes happier and worthwhile.  
  • The book gives a personalized reading and makes you feel as if it is written only with you in the mind.  
  • Ample illustrative examples of achievements of how and when the interest overtakes the Principal, compounding with time and discipline are inspiring. 
  • Financial freedom is indeed a blessing to the invoked. 
  • Simple concepts but brilliant ideas! Have a plan even if you are unable to stick to it.  The author discusses various such ideas in one’s goal to financial freedom.  
  • The Pareto principle of mathematics is well analysed in these contexts.  The act of celebrating milestones is enjoyable to read.  
  • A good coverage of spirituality regarding “God Knows how to help you” is praiseworthy.


On the whole, From Rat Race to Financial Freedom is a book worth possessing for any household shelf, library stacks and short travel companionship.

As Dr. Karthikeyan also pointed out, it is not about the book alone, and it is definitely not about the money alone. It is about how you manage your life. It gives a completely new perspective with the time tested wealth management principles.

Some other pointers that give you insight of the momentum the book has been generating:

  • We are on the verge of getting the 200th Facebook page fan of the book . We are at 199 today. (Take me to the Facebook page)
  • We are very close to 200 registered freedom seekers on our Freedom portal. We are touching 190 right now. These are the people who are committed to make a difference to their overall life via financial freedom. (Take me to the Freedom portal)
  • We are adding more freedom seekers / day today than what we ever added.
  • Book is running its 5th successive week of being in Top 20 Finance Books as well as Top 10 Personal Success Books on Flipkart
  • The book recently got listed in the Top 0.1% ranked books on Amazon India (on a base of more than 1.2 Crore books).
  • We are exceeding 72,000+ blog hits and counting. (Subscribe me to the blog)

All the above data apart, what gives me even more satisfaction is the fact that i am able to personally connect with hundreds of freedom seekers and guide them (with no charges) on their journey to financial freedom. The kind of appreciations and thanks messages from them fills my heart with bliss. 

I know they can now hope for a better future, a future where they can start thinking of something more value adding in life than just earning money for survival.

Cheers
