Mehrab’s latest book is a sweeping tale of mystery and adventure, with deep revelations on the nature of man and money.

Tired of his energy-and money-draining middle-class life, Dr. John Pinto decides to end it all by walking into oncoming traffic. But Life has other plans from him! Through a quirky twist of fate, John finds himself saved and launched into a financial pilgrimage across the world. Through a whirligig of exotic, shocking and sometimes dangerous encounters, he learns what it means to be financially independent.

The school of Life introduces him to people who have learned the 10 commandments of financial freedom the hard way. From Afghani terrorists to Kenyan marathon runners, from Bangkok prostitutes to Chinese mystics and many more. Each soul on this incredible journey holds a key insight into the relationship between man and money. To achieve true freedom, he will have to face it all-a turbulent odyssey of hair-raising adventure, unexpected teachers, monetary rewards and an overarching mission.

A dazzling novel, written with wit, compassion, intelligence and deep humanity, travel with John Pinto to unearth the secrets of a rich life.



A tricky mission of most of the people in this world is to attain financial nirvana.This book is perfect for you to understand financial concepts in a very simple way. This book will give you the way to do right investments. The author writes his experience and talks about the journey around the world to understand the 10 commandments that can lead one to financial nirvana after following an advice from his long lost school buddy, Vijay Desai.

I am planning to read this book and this would be a definite favorite book for me to read again in case of any financial crisis.  Though this book is not mean’t to talk about complete calculations of investments and profits, but its talks about fundamentals for investments .

Invest smartly and understand  how you have to invest smartly. Sweet and neat book on investments for a great read.
