Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

A short and indispensable whistle-stop tour through the most efficient financial habits that will get you on your way to financial freedom. Get to the bottom of the most common money issues via unpicking the psychology behind them - how they reel us in, why we feel we have to keep up with the Joneses and why get-rich-quick schemes are so alluring. What They Don't Teach You About Money will banish your lack of confidence in money matters and make you laugh along the way! It is a call to arms to reclaim your power and make your money work for you, without the shaming finger-wagging or headache-inducing jargon.

Claer Barrett will unveil the reasons why so many of us lack confidence, and why we stay stuck in financial paralysis. From revealing what 'credit' really means (spoiler alert, it's not as positive as they'd like you to think) to the lie that you can easily make money off property, she'll debunk the pervasive money myths perpetuated by those who profit the most from our ignorance. It shouldn't be this hard. In fact, there are simple steps we can all take to streamline our finmin (financial admin). Habits that get us the best deals and make our money work harder for us, rather than bolstering the coffers of others.

Must read for people starting to thinking about their finances

Addresses lots of topics for example how to budget, how to increase income, how taxes work (England, Wales), how mortgage works, tax returns, how to save and where to save and what to save. How to invest in ISA, cash ISA, stocks and shares ISA, what are bonds. How pensions work. Student loan issues.
Very informative and highly recommended for everyone starting with their financial literacy and independence.
Should be a must read for people in their early 20s.

Fantastic guide to your finances

Finally, a practical guide to understanding your finances in a clear, concise, and straightforward way. Clare Barrett takes out much of the mysticism and jargon surrounding money and provides useful guidance wherever you are in your career and at whatever level. Great content, well read, and informative.

Good read (listen)

Claer reads her own book which makes it a better listen in my opinion. Some great financial lessons and tips.

Informative and entertaining

This book covers a lot of topics, many of these might not be relevant to everybody right now, but it gives a great summary of money matters, which is why it is very well worth to listen. There is also a chapter on investment tips only available in the UK, but it got me curious to check whether something similar is available in my country.

Personally I learned a lot from this book, especially about the different personalities related to money, and how to overcome these. Not to mention the really entertaining narration, it was both fun und useful.

Good book in personal finance

Although I do not live in the UK, this book provides a good introduction in personal finance. Wish this was available before I first started working 2,5 years ago :)

Personally enjoyed the last chapter, regarding our relationship and psychology with money.
