The DIY Investor is an excellent book for anyone looking to take to control of their financial future. For beginners, it provides a thorough and insightful view into the sometimes confusing worlds of personal finance and investment, offering a multitude of practical tips on how to make the best of their savings.
It is also useful as a reference and planning guide for those more familiar with the markets. Since this is the second edition of the book, more experienced investors might find the updates regarding recent developments in the markets especially useful, particularly the section on the new types of ISA products and the benefits they bring.
All in all buying this book should be a no brainer for those who want to nail down plans to go on a self investment journey. Costing less than £20, this is a mere fraction of the potential thousands of pounds that some investors might end up paying to the professionals over the course of their investment careers.
