Money A User’s Guide isn’t one of my normal choices for a book.
But one of the things I know I want to work on this year is all things money. Money Mindset, and also understanding more about the way accounts, stocks, and bonds work.
This book is a great pocketbook of information. Although small it is quite thick and full of information.
Some of it I skipped over as it wasn’t relevant to me. Like the section on your full-time job. There is another section on self-employed that I read instead.
My favorite bit was at the end and the chapter on money and wellbeing. Although definitely not long enough in my mind!
Why 4 stars? Well, it’s an awesome little book. But I just felt it didn’t match up to the level of the books I have already given 5 stars to.
Would I recommend you get it? 100%. If you want to learn more about banks, mortgages, credit ratings, etc. Then this is a brilliant book to help you get started. Not only that but it also covers all types of savings. Bonds and Stock included with tips for beginners and where to start.
I know this book is going to be one I reach out and refer to often when I want to invest more or change bank accounts. And re-reading when I am on my way to buying a house.
Off to open a lifetime ISA now before it’s too late. Need to do some research on the best one.
