Iona Bain is the brain behind “Young Money”, one of the UK’s top personal finance blogs. She’s also now the author of this fab little book on money, saving, budgeting, and finding a little focus for your finances. Whilst reading, I definitely found myself cringing at the parts where I identified my own spending habits (who isn’t guilty of splurging from time to time?) but Bain brings personal finance into perspective. There’s no banky jargon. No assumptions that you, the reader, need ‘educating’. No one-size-fits-all set of advice. Maybe it doesn’t fit in with some of the other “tech reads” but Bain does a brilliant job of looking at different spending patterns, saving habits, goals, and aspirations. Big thumbs up and a must-read for anyone who’s ever felt like they want to do more with their money.
