Money plays a role in nearly every aspect of our lives, and yet very few of us know how to save, where to invest and how to make our money grow.

There are a great many questions surrounding successful investing and building wealth: where to invest, how to invest, how to diversify, who to trust, how to save on costs, which investments perform the best and yet are safe ... the list is endless.

This reliable - and highly accessible - guide is aimed at the financial novice who needs clear, basic guidelines on how to deal with money.

It covers all aspects of investment that the average person would encounter in his or her life, from earning the first salary cheque to retirement.

This book will show you that financial freedom is possible for everyone – and that means you too!
