If you are like many people, analysing how to best use your money is one of the hardest things to do. Doug Hoyes clearly, succinctly and interestingly explodes the myths and mistakes many of us make in trying not only to manage our money, but make our money work for us. Using direct language and mini case studies, Hoyes delineates how the average person can avoid the temptations, pitfalls and wrong turns when dealing with money. Easy to read, this book won't put you to sleep or confuse you with jargon. A good primer for anyone from students to retirees.
