    Bought this for my daughter and she loved it She has already said she will not be getting any store cards when she is older and can t believe the interest rates, so hopefully it has been worth the purchase.

    I read through this before giving it to my cousin s grandson I had given copies to 2 other granddaughters a couple of years ago who were very pleased and found it useful Yes, I know they would say that That s why I read it myself this time The content is practical, the advice useful and the book is readable My only reservation is that it s now several years old and bits are a little dated I d like to give another youngster an updated edition or something similar but haven t found anything.By the way, it s impossible to find this in any High St booksellers they say it s out of print.

    Rather outdated pictures and would benefit from a general update, but still very useful information which is designed to appeal to the teenage mindset
