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.

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.

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 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.

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!

An indispensable financial freedom framework!

An indispensable, accessible and actionable framework for financial freedom, for anyone who uses money. Pete Matthew generously condenses much wisdom from his many years' of advising and teaching on financial planning to provide an invaluable companion to his pioneering Meaningful Money podcast.

I doubt there are (m)any investments with a better return than the rewards I'll reap from buying and applying Pete's book. Thank you Pete!
