Publisher's Summary

Today's turmoil in the financial markets illustrates how important it is to be in control of your money. This book addresses the core fundamentals of financial literacy, telling readers how banks work and why city traders earn such enormous bonuses. It plots paths out of debt and builds financial confidence so readers feel in charge of their finances. Duncan knows the true value of money: now worth £310 million, he was born into extreme post-war poverty. Taking each area of our financial lives in turn - earning, spending, borrowing, investing, saving, budgeting and the wider economy - he helps us understand where we are in our own financial cycle and how to achieve financial security.

Useful for beginners

Maybe I had my hopes up, but this didn't tell me anything I didn't already know! It did remind me of a few financial things, but not really worth the cost of the download. I wish I'd never bothered.

The information provided is the usual basic stuff, like how to borrow money using a loan, a mortgage, secured, unsecured, etc. no real gems which is what I was hoping for...

It also puts a lot of weight behind property investment, again I was hoping for more than this.

On the upside I'm going to ask my 16 year old to take a listen as I wish I'd known some of this when I was that age, whether he'll bother is another matter though.

Sorry Duncan, this gets the big thumbs down from me, I'll wait for my refund....I bet that's going to be a long wait!

A great mixture of basics and advanced knowledge

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Almost - it's only 3 or so hours long

Any additional comments?

A great collection of financial knowledge, delivered in the no-nonsense style you expect from Bannatyne. I felt like it reminded me of a lot of things I already knew, but also taught me how to think about money in ways I never have before, such planning long-term investments and devising a lifetime strategy for managing your finances.
