The TROT Financial Planning System: A New Way to Relate to Money and Establish Total Financial Governance™ by Alvaro Castellanos, CFP®, is a book that offers a structured approach to financial management. He begins by explaining financial concepts before moving to the Literate Learning Targets (LLT) to highlight key points. Castellanos analyzes the dimensions of financial elements using the TROT system in a detailed but yet concise manner. Do you want to learn how to manage your finances the right way with the help of the TROT financial planning system? Do well to grab a copy of this book.
 
Castellanos emphasizes the importance of controlling one's financial journey, confronting money-related fears, and achieving financial goals. He also introduces the TROT system, categorizing financial products into a matrix that guides users in understanding and mastering their relationship with money through a defined methodology. I liked how the author tries as much as possible to convey his points without making the book too bulky.
 
Learning these methods of financial management in key areas of life through this book was worth the read; hence, I couldn't find anything to dislike about this book. It is also worthy of note that I did not come across a single grammatical error while I read through this book. This implies that this book was exceptionally edited.
 
I will rate this book 5 out of 5 stars because of its wholesome quality in the sense that it captures major and critical financial areas in the lives of every individual. These areas range from taxes and investments to retirement planning components and even estate planning components. The author includes images throughout the book that aid in conveying his message to readers. I recommend this book to everyone who wants to transform their financial lives for the better, as the author, who holds numerous certificates and experiences that prove his mastery in this field, carefully lays out and explains financial management in detail. This book is suitable for a wide range of audiences, as it can aid readers in preparing for and choosing the right future for themselves.

System Thinking has been defined as the process of addressing the "whole" picture of concern and not just the parts and relationships of concern within a system. "The TROT Financial Planning System" is a complete, but high-level application of System Thinking and stresses simplicity, understandability, and close relationship of the planner to the plan as unique features.

It is the position of the author that current financial planning systems are out of date, incomplete and overly structured for both business and personal use. It is not enough to simply ask after current assets and those planned; or to generate projected financial statements and inquire after management assumptions as to growth, cost and throughput. Rather, more important is to see financial thinking translated into an intelligent system that becomes both a framework and a silent partner in the plan's implementation.
