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.

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.

Wow this helped me a lot.

After reading this book, it kind of added to the small amount I knew about money but I know for sure that I did close down my overdraft after reading this book so I can properly save money. Great read.

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.
