This book is an excellent aid for young people to better understand their finances and features the following topics: saving, banking, budgeting, smart shopping tips, understanding types of loans and credit and how to manage debt, investing and financial planning, choosing suitable mobile phone plans, avoiding scams and rip-offs, and explains the basics about insurance and superannuation. Get on top of your finances while you are young and establish healthy financial habits!
