E-book: DIY Personal Money Management

Here is an e-book based on a (nearly) unabridged collection of 20 posts written earlier.  I have not bothered to connect the chapters. I hope that will not spoil your experience too much. Perhaps only a reader who is used to my style and intent might find this collection useful.

This is an experiment. Please let me know if it is a good idea to compile past posts as an e-book.

    Hi Pattu

    Compiling an ebook is always a good idea. Readers will get a comprehensive sequence of chapters to be read and follow step by step. Infact I am doing it for my self by downloading relevant pdf files from this blog, printing it, punching in a file sequentially and referring it as and when required.

    Thanks!

    Thanks Pattu!! This compilation actually flows through very nicely. Wish folks give sometime to go through it 🙂
    On side note, given all the illustrations in the MF section, the VR guys should be promoting it!!

    Thanks Pattu, It is really good to have it in single pdf. Very convenient. I also think something like a Tab named 'Archives' and list all the articles Monthwise. Similiar to what is done at zenhabits.net and stevepavlina.com/blog

    Pattu-Sir, Thanks for fulfilling my long standing wish to have an e-book of your articles. This is exactly what I had been hoping for long. I have already downloaded the same and sent it for print out at my office press to be circulated amongst my colleagues. I have been asking them to read this article for their own good. I also plan to show this to my father in law and sister in law and somehow I fail to understand why they are so averse to financial planning being from chennai (my general conception with poeple based out of chennai is they are good in financial planning after noticing that almost ALL fund houses will have their annual investor meet at Chennai). Hopefully your book will change their mindset
