    I'm ignorant when it comes to mortgages, banking, loans, debt, credit cards, savings, retirement, financial independence, consumer protection laws etc. Can any of you recommend a good book that covers all of these topics in details? Something like reddit's subreddit: r/UKPersonalFinance but as a book.

    Cheers.

    Alvin hall used to do a TV series, but there are lots of other personal finance books on Amazon. You can also use moneysavingexpert.com tbh.


    Is not a bad start.
