Top Customer Reviews
There are some good points hidden amongst the repetition, verbosity and plain bad English, but you need to delve deep to find them.
As a basic text on personal finance it is not too bad, but significant tightening-up is needed - in a second edition? Moreover some obvious issues are covered in laborious detail, whilst more complicated matters are skipped over.
Could be a lot better!
