Sid Mittra is an Emeritus Professor of Finance at Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan, as well as a former partner and founder of the financial consulting firm Mittra & Associates. He is a former board member of the International Board of Standards and Practices of Certified Financial Planners and has many times been a presenter at the World Conference of the International Association for Financial Planning. Harold Evensky, a colleague of Sid (who himself was named as one of the five most influential people in the financial planning profession) has said of Sid: "He was one of the profession's pioneers. However, past tense does not fully capture Sid's contributions, for like the Energizer Bunny, Sid continues to lead." Dr Mittra has written more than a hundred technical articles and 12 books on finance and economics, including Practicing Financial Planning: A Complete Guide for Professionals (originally published by Prentice Hall in 1990; the11th edition was published in 2012 by American Academic Publishing), parts of which won a gold in Axiom Business Book Award in 2008. A few of Dr Mittra's other books include Investment Analysis and Portfolio Management (Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1981), Inside Wall Street (Dow Jones-Irwin, 1971), Money and Banking: Theory, Analysis and Policy (Random House, 1970), and Dimensions in Macroeconomics: A Book of Readings (Random House, 1971). Dr Mittra has also authored the longest running financial planning columns in The Oakland Press and the Detroit-area Eccentric newspapers, and has even hosted a regional television show called "Your Money" on personal finance. This book To Bee or Not to Bee represents Dr Mittra's effort to introduce the public to a powerful concept entitled The Four Ps Principles. Details of these principles are articulated in the section entitled Prelude.
