Be smart with your money too
on 22 May 2009
I have big respect for Duncan Bannatyne, and I think it is wonderful that someone with so much money will happily share his strategies with the rest of us. There are so many false financial gurus who are not even on The Rich List, yet are charging thousands of pounds for their "secret information" on how to be rich, yet here is one of the richest men in Britain who is giving his financial advice for less than a tenner.
In this book, Duncan Bannatyne takes a look at the finance world through the eyes of an everyday person. He gives his advice on what he would do if he was in the position of the average wage earner in the United Kingdom. He says there are basic skills we all can learn to be better with money, whether you are worth £3 pounds or £310m.
When I first read this book I was worried that Duncan might be too rich to relate to the problems and issues faced by the common man. In fact, he has researched very extensively into everyday finance, and names many relevant and up to date websites and sources. Clearly he has really given this book a lot of thought and applied his financial mind to the problem of how we can all be better off with our money.
Duncan was poor once upon a time and he came from nothing to become a mega multi-millionaire many times over. He has now learned the skill of managing money and becoming richer, and through this book, he is passing those skills on to all of us. It is clear that he actually practises the techniques which he recommends. The financial strategies presented are how Duncan approaches his own finances, and he is one of the richest men in the UK. If you want to be smart with your money, this is the book to read.
