Managing Your Money

Publisher: Usborne

This fantastic non-fiction guide to managing money provides a clear, concise introduction for young people to all things financial. The opening chapter invites the reader to complete a quiz to help them understand their own approach to money. The book then explores a vast range of topics, including setting a budget, buying a mobile phone and opening a bank account.

Later chapters explore more advanced areas, such as borrowing money, managing debt, gambling and where to go for financial help, which will be more relevant as the reader approaches adulthood and starts to earn their own money.

The well-designed layout incorporates black-and-white illustrations and text boxes, which divide the wealth of information into smaller sections, making it easier to absorb. Quick quizzes, top tips and example scenarios feature throughout, helping to clarify the key points from each chapter. A contents page, comprehensive glossary and index ensure the guide is easy to navigate and there are useful online links on the publisher’s website.

An invaluable book to equip young people with the key skills necessary to understand money, assess risk and make wise financial choices, thus enabling them to become financially responsible adults.
