How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia by Mohsin Hamid is about a boy who moves to the city with his family and aspires to become rich. The book’s chapters are about different parts of his journey and each of them teaches some sort of life lesson. The main moral of the book is that happiness is not all about getting rich. The boy thought that becoming rich would make him happy but in the end, he realizes how alone he is after losing his entire fortune. He worked his whole life away for money that was taken from him in seconds. Fortunately, he is lucky enough to spend the end of his life with the pretty girl, who is his true love. Spending time with her is what made him truly happy in the end. Like Aristotle said, happiness is everyone’s ultimate goal.
