I’ve glanced at this book so many times in the shop but I don’t think I was ready to be a proper adult & actually pick it up. With the aim of seriously saving some money & trying to get on the property ladder, I thought I should finally bite the bullet. I’m glad I did! This book sets everything out in such a manageable way, & there are sections that I’ll be going back to when I get to that point on the ladder, so to speak.

This is such a useful book & I think everyone could get something out of it. I feel like it should be required reading in schools, or given to all young adults to start them off on a positive step, because I really feel I could have got a lot out of it 10 years ago!

This book is a must-read for anyone who wants to know how they could be using their money better. It is full of tips and tricks for making your money work harder, with explanations of how everything works that anybody can understand. With plenty of food for thought and a few statistics/thoughts I had never considered and can put into practice. Definitely one to buy.

Love this book. A handy guide answering all the questions were were too embarrassed to ask, or didn't know who to ask! The book works best when you dip in and out of chapters most relevant to your needs but also a great introduction on the subject of money and how to make the most of it.

Exactly what I needed: a simple, non nonsense help guide to my finances. Sometime searching online can provide you with such a sea of information that you don’t even know where to start. This guide cuts that out and advises you in layman’s terms.

This book is a must-read for anyone who wants to know how they could be using their money better. It is full of tips and tricks for making your money work harder, with explanations of how everything works that anybody can understand. Personally, I didn’t get as much out of it as I had hoped, but I put that down to being fairly financially savvy. Nevertheless, there was still plenty of food for thought and a few statistics/thoughts I had never considered and can put into practice. Definitely one to keep on the shelf.
