Summary

Take control of your personal finances with this concise, timely and indispensable guide from acclaimed money expert Laura Whateley.

Ten years on from the financial crash, and we are still bad with money. We press ‘cash only’ at ATMs and accept that we’ll be paying back our student loans with our pension savings.

Money: A User’s Guide cuts through all the panic of personal finances. It will teach you how to get a great credit score and how to save hundreds on bills and offers practical advice on every difficult conversation you’ve been avoiding including:

  • Housing (for renters and buyers)
  • Student Loans
  • Pensions
  • Paying off debt
  • Stocks and shares
  • Ethical investments
  • Money and mental health
  • Money and love

This essential book will give you the confidence and clarity to take back control of your bank account, enabling you to thrive in all areas of your life.

I've been looking everywhere for a book which will explain in simple terms what I need to know about money. I've been putting my head in the sand for far too long but now I have all the tools I need to get started. Thank you!

Wish I knew this stuff sooner.

Everything you wish you know after finishing high school and before university. But not to late to read after high school or university.

Very simple guide to personal finance

Very good book for complete beginners, but doesn't go into much detail. Serves its purpose!

Better late than never

I wish I read this book when I was 20/21. I would have made some better decision. Regardless as I’ve just turned 23 I still found this book to be helpful. This is a beginners guide which introduces money issues well and I’ve picked up a few things which I wouldn’t have known.

Greatness

I liked the good information . Listen more than once. The first time may be hard to retain because its new information and your brain has to adjust.
