Solid advice for a UK finance system

This book is really helpful to break down the process of how to create a financially sound money plan within the UK.
If you have been reading other finance books such as 'Total Money Makeover' and 'I Will Teach You How To Be Rich', then please listen to this if you live in the UK such as myself.

A truly excellent listened as expected

After listening to Pete's podcast for some time I had some expectation of what this would be like. This audiobook brings together the important content of what everybody should be working towards with their finances. Pete explains everything slowly and clearly without coming across as condescending. he also explains things in a compassionate manner and understands what for majority of people need to do to secure their future finances.
Great work Pete and thank you. I'm glad to finally give something back by purchasing this audiobook. It won't be long until I'm invested into a passive multi asset fund ;)

Essential listening

This should be a compulsory read! It's the financial education I needed. I am now motivated and equipped with the tools I need to secure my financial future. Excellent book - I've listened to it twice now, and will continue to dip in and out for inspiration.

The Best Book On This Subject

It’s what the title says. I really can’t thank Pete enough for putting out such an easy to understand, informative book. Great for Irish and English people.

Pete Is The Daddy

I've been following and watching Pete for about six months now with his podcasts and youtube videos. He has made me intentional about my money and this book or audio version will do the same for you.If your money management needs an ass kicking and you are a regular Joe or Jane who needs led by the hand in plain not over your head language then this is for you.

I had to change my financial ways to find a path for my future security. This book and Pete's guidence have helped massively but also got me enthusied about clearing my debt and working on my wealth building to protect and safeguard my future and retirement

Debt cleared.....now on second phase

Thanks Pete .....

Excellent

As a big fan of the meaningful money podcast this has been on my reading list for a while. It's an excellent and consise summary of everything you need to know, and everything you need to do to manage your finances. I especially like how the audio book directs you to diagrams on the meaningful money website where appropriate.

Still valuable even after listening to pods

As a meaningful money podcast listener I wondered whether there would be anything new to learn from this book, and there was some repeat of info previously shared, but was still a valuable listen to solidify the concepts.
Basic rationale for looking at where the money goes... and... more importantly focusing your mind on where you want to send it. Simplified details on pensions and investments all aimed at the UK market - which is the difficulty with so many other books that aim to turn your finances around but are mainly relevant to the USA.
An easy listen. Not patronising or evangelical. An ideal push in the right direction. Will definite follow this man in whatever other media/books he chooses to put out.

Excellent

As somebody who's never been interested in investing, partly through fear and partly through not really understanding how it all works, this book has been fantastic. It helps ordinary people understand how best to slowly and steadily build wealth without needing to spend a fortune during the early stages on a financial advisor.

For those really wanting to understand all the technical elements, Pete's podcast would be an important part of that, but for those of us who are just looking for a simple explanation of the steps you can take to secure a better financial future, this book is all you need!
