Publisher: Wren & Rook
From cowrie shells to credit cards and cryptocurrency, money has been around for a long time. But how do you get it and how do you look after it – should you spend it, save it, or try and grow it?
This financial handbook encourages readers to develop good money habits. Outlining everything from budgeting and choosing a bank account to investing – and the things to watch out for – it is packed full of information and advice about how to manage money effectively.
The opening chapter discusses what money is, where it came from, why it is used, and explores how money has evolved. Subsequent chapters discuss how to earn, spend, save, grow and give money, and there is a useful summary at the end of each section. The chatty style is enhanced by plenty of diagrams and illustrations, making this an accessible guide. Simple examples are used to explain complicated concepts, such as how banks charge and award interest, and the author explains how money can be empowering and a force for good in the world.
Essential reading, this accessible handbook is an invaluable introduction on how to get wise with your dosh and take control of your financial future.
