Spare Change has been named one of the best money books out there by not ONE but TWO influential websites!
It follows widespread praise for Spare Change, which was the first millennial money book seen last decade and pioneered a whole market of personal finance literature aimed at younger people, particularly women.
The Metro named Spare Change as a must-read money book, specifically when it comes to debt. Senior Lifestyle Reporter Natalie Morris said:
This handy guide by Iona Bain basically covers all your bases. It’s an accessible, easy-to-read guide that aims to help you build a more fulfilling relationship with money. Bain helps readers explore their personal relationship with money, then create an action plan, tailored to their individual needs. If you’re in debt, this book will look at compulsive spending and difficulties with creating a budget – to help improve your financial literacy.
And Money Observer recommended it as one of its top money books for 2020. Nina Kelly, web editor at Money Observer, was chomping at the bit to read it on her way to work:
Money management makes for exciting reading, said no young person ever, yet financial writers who crank up the fun factor are surely more likely to capture the attention of younger people and help them achieve a secure financial future. So, when a colleague told me that Spare Change, by Oxford-educated musician, singer, journalist, and Young Money blogger Iona Bain, features an illustration of country music star Dolly Parton, I added it to my towering to-read pile. It is a title that I hope will both educate and entertain me while I’m commuting for my 9 to 5 (sorry, I couldn’t resist).
Spare Change was also named one of the top feminist books of the year by the Independent.
