Today's twenty-somethings have much less idea of how to keep track of their personal finances than previous generations. Young people have continuously been encouraged to use student loans and overdrafts without a thought for the future, but now they are increasingly realising that they need to sit up and take responsibility for their finances.
This book will cover all those complicated things that as a student or young person you never bothered to try and understand before when - suddenly - it's vital that you do understand them. The world of ISAs, loans, mortgages and tax returns can seem pretty scary to the uninitiated. Experienced financial journalist Nic Cicutti breaks the vital information down into four sections: Topics covered will include student loans, bank debt, credit cards and mortgages; tax returns and PAYE forms, buying and renting property; savings, ISAs and investment strategies; and planning a budget.
In the course of about 4 months, I have managed to save several hundreds of dollars each month, establish an emergency savings fund of several thousand dollars, a stock brokerage account, a new k , invest in a safe mutual fund, and trimmed my bills and insurance payment to reasonable numbers without the unneeded bells and whistles. I cannot express enough how easy it is to simply read this and other books and change your financial life for the better. Being financially secure has improved my happiness exponentially.
One of the best personal finance books out there. Practical straightforward advice for the post-college set and those older adults who have not been paying attention. Written in plain English. Highly recommend for your college grad or late twenties child who is still living at home.

Took me from 29 year old man child to a surprisingly competent adult. If that's not a glowing endorsement I don't know what it is. Recommended reading after you complete this is "Bogleheads Guide to Investing": This book, along with some cash, is my go-to gift for every new college graduate. If you want an easy reading, step-by-step, common sense guide to personal finance, this is it. If you want to get on the right track to financial freedom, this is a great place to start. I consider those books to be about the mindset. This is the how-to guide. It's good for people who are just starting out.
Those who are just getting out of college or high school. It gives you a basic overview over everything financial. However if you want to dig deeper you'll have to read other books, which is given a list of recommendations in the book. If you want a basic understanding some general advice then it's a good book in that aspect. This won't make you a millionaire, but gives you a good understanding of what to expect when you start your job.
It gives you a grip on your finances so later on you are not struggling. Sadly, our educational institutions are virtually "bankrupt" when it comes to providing helpful advice on Money Management and Personal Finance. Even most MBA programs fall short! I have also witnessed the high stress, frustration, discouragement, pain - and diminishing hope - that many have gone through, with the frail global economy. Although this book is aimed more at the younger market, I see it as a 'basic guide' for ALL ages, and for many different situations.
Yes, perhaps there are some 'more sophisticated' financial strategies that could have been covered like "becoming your own banker" - "income sprinkling" - "passive income options", etc , but they usually require some 'hands on' guidance from an expert in financial matters.
Get a Financial Life: Personal Finance in Your Twenties and Thirties
Nevertheless, whether you are single - in university - married and raising a family - in your prime career years - a professional - an entrepreneur - retired OR, whether you're financially savvy or otherwise For example, in my practice over the years, working with mainly with Health Practitioners, who are very busy, with hectic schedules Also, they have paid a "huge" price, in time, effort and money bank debts!
Kobliner includes common sense and sound advice that's applicable to "everyone" - on budgeting, credit, banking, investing, credit cards, ATMs, bank accounts, mutual funds, retirement savings plans, apartment renting, paying back student loans, retirement planning, home buying, insurance, taxes, tips on car loans, and more.
Over the years I've integrated a number of personal finance topics into a college course I teach at MTU. This book provides a great supplement to my class. The author explains things in ample detail, but not so much that it's boring. I highly recommend this book. It was an easy read and was super informative.
I wanted to reread it when I was done just to make sure I truly got everything I needed to know but someone asked if they could borrow it to read themselves and I felt like I just needed to share it with them so they can be aware of these things too.
