Book Description

10 Jan 2008

The Three Most Important Lessons You've Never Been Taught is a survival guide to living in one of the world's most competitive consumer economies.We need to change the way we think about money. This book will start you on the path to beating the system, grabbing the best deals and avoiding being ripped off... and it only takes an hour to read.

- A company 's job is to make money from you; your job is to stop them.

- Debt isn't bad; bad debt is bad. Learn to tell them apart.

- Loyalty doesn't pay; become someone whose custom is fought for, not taken for granted.

Consumer campaigner and top TV expert, Martin Lewis, first designed these lessons for a unique TV challenge where he had just one day to turn twelve normal 15-year-olds into Money Saving Experts. Yet this isn't child's play - after the class they went home and saved their parents over £5,000. Now it's time for everyone to learn these golden rules...

(Martin Lewis is donating all his proceeds from this book to the MSE Charity (registered charity no. 1121320).)

"a thorn in the corporate establishment's side" (Sunday Times)

"Martin Lewis, the man behind moneysavingexpert.com, is one of those people who can lead you through big decisions involving huge amounts of money as if they are laughably unscary. He is a modern-day Robin Hood, and I may love him more than Phil Spencer from Location Location Location" (Katy Guest Independent)

4.0 out of 5 stars this really will save you money 2 Mar 2008
Format:Paperback
I picked this book up for next to nothing but it really will make a difference to almost everyones finaces. It makes yo umore aware of the workings of business and how they want to get at your money and it makes you a much cannier shopper. It gives excellent advice for saving money on everything from car insurance and break down cover etc to saving money on your grocerys at tesco etc. I would highly recommend this book to anyone serious about saving money. Its an enlightening read

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing New 16 Jun 2012
By Lisa McS VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I think the best thing I could have done to save money this week would have been not buying this book. I didn't learn anything I didn't already know (perhaps partly because I work in a supermarket and know exactly what management do to increase sales).
On the whole I was disappointed. There isn't a lot to the book which I read in less than 2 hours and I don't think it's gong to save me the promised thousands every year.
