The RRSP Book (2008)
Preet's first book, RRSPs: The Definitive Guide To Registered Retirement Savings Plans, was received with praise by various news publications and personal finance blogs. The book lists 41 RRSP strategies, many of them lesser known, including holding a mortgage inside an RRSP and when it would make sense to over-contribute to an RRSP and face financial penalties.
Charitable Giving In Canada (2008)
Preet also published a free e-book, Charitable Giving In Canada. This short reference book is meant to be shared, so please download a copy and share with whomever you see fit. It helps explain the charitable donation tax credit as well as more advanced concepts such as the charitable remainder trust.
Stop Over-Thinking Your Money
Preet's next book, due to be published in January of 2014, is aimed at anyone who is intimidated about money. It will include the five rules of financial success that apply to everyone, whether they be rich or poor, young or old, a Bay Street analyst, or an artist. Most people search for the perfect plan, or think they have to invest lots of time learning about stocks and bonds and economics. But think of a personal trainer at the gym. They get you results, but not by showing you a fancy new way to do a sit-up. They just make you do the sit-up. It's the same with money, except we don't know what the financial equivalent of a sit-up is. This book will show you the simple things you have to do in order to be successful with your money.
Podcast: Mostly Money, Mostly Canadian
Mostly Money, Mostly Canadian is one of the highest rated Business and Investing podcasts in North America, regularly hitting #1 on iTunes when new episodes are published.
This personal finance and light business news podcast for average Canadians is a light hearted look into what is important about managing your personal finances and what some of the business headlines really mean. Interviews, jokes, education, and no intimidation. It's mostly about money, and mostly Canadian, but sometimes things get off topic. Like fast cars, fatty foods, movies, science, and more. Basically it'll cover whatever random thoughts are going through Preet's head. This podcast is rated R for occasional foul language and as a pre-emptive warning to those with pickles up their ass.

Why 2.5 billion heartbeats might change the way you think about money
In this TEDx Talk, Preet explains how a simplistic paradigm shift in the way he looked at his own health made him realize that some people might benefit from a similar paradigm shift in how they look at money.
The average human heart will beat 2.5 billion times in lifetime. We have to make the most of those beats. Improving our health can mean lowering our heart rate, which can lead to a longer, healthier life. A university graduate may earn millions of dollars over the course of their lifetime and have millions of dollars of expenses, but have you ever considered how much interest you will pay over the course of your lifetime? After watching this video, you will. And we all might learn to start hating debt again. Paradoxically, the more one saves, the more they can ultimately spend.
